    Google voice integration going away June 1st

    If you have Tasker, I have a profile setup that I can share with you to block calls on Hangouts and CDMA from spoofed phone numbers that aren't in my address book. Just triggers a notification saying it was blocked. I can export it as a standalone apk too if you let me know your area code and exchange. I get several spoofed spam calls a day.

    Google voice integration going away June 1st

    Using Google Voice separately (voicemail integration with Sprint, so conditional call forwarding which will continue to work), MMS has worked for a while. At least using Hangouts. My issue with it for calls is that if I'm in an area with congested data, then calls are flakey. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Third carrier on triband sites (that use triband endings) has second carrier GCI endings. So: Non-triband: 2nd carrier - 03, 04, 05 3rd carrier - 06, 07, 08 Triband: 2nd carrier - 09, 0A, 0B 3rd carrier - 03, 04, 05 I define second carrier as the middle earfcn, and third carrier as the highest earfcn.

    Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    Mine has been doing that all week. GPS also goes red on the LTE side but not the CDMA side. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I'm not sure if Sprint has the capacity to provide home internet through the magic box. Maybe if it's a limited data allotment (similar to hotspot caps). I could see it more as a possible incentive offered to businesses for them to install magic boxes. Provide wifi for their POS terminals and such in exchange for hosting the MB. That wouldn't eat into Sprint's capacity very much, and would make it an easier sell to the businesses. Right now, the wifi chip seems to only be turned on when the magic box fails to connect to a donor. It broadcasts an SSID allowing a technician to connect to the box and manually configure it and view logs and such. The 544 model (gen 2) actually has an inferior wifi chip compared to the 540 (original beta unit) and 545 (gen 1). I want to say it's 802.11g only versus 802.11n on the others. Which is a sign that they don't intend to really deploy it for anything other than diagnostics. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    Go into DATA and disable BC10. Your phone will reboot, and you'll be back on the Airave. Then go back into DATA and turn it back on. It'll reboot again, but you'll stay on 1x1900. Hopefully it doesn't require this every time you leave your house, but if so maybe just leave 1x800 disabled. Sucky work around, but the only other alternative is to edit the PRL which doesn't seem possible on these newer devices. Too bad they got rid of the 800 beacon. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    The unlock seems to have to be done with it on the line that it was originally tied to (likely on a lease). Even if the lease is paid off. I had an awful time getting mine unlocked so I could sell it. This may have been changed with the updates to their unlocking server though. Keep working at it. They may also require it to be active on your line for 60 days before they'll unlock it. If all else fails, file an FCC complaint. That was the only way I got mine unlocked.

    That's a 10x10 B25 carrier. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    When you're on B25 check the engineering screen or field test. You can tell from the earfcn if it's 5x5 or 10x10. The most common 10x10 is 8640 in place of 8665. Or post the frequency that the magic box is reporting that it's connected to. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    And you're in a market that doesn't have 10x10 B25? The MB is not certified for B25 CA, and to my knowledge the modem is incapable of CA on B25. In my tests in markets with 2 5x5 B25 carriers, there was no speed increase once CA on B25 was enabled. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Galaxy S9 Series user thread

    Hmm. Maybe try swapping in the SIM from her S7 (or preferably another carrier if possible). Not sure if the phone being carrier locked will affect things. Like I said, sometimes the RCS data gets corrupted or something, and I tried clearing data for a lot of system and nonsystem apps to fix it, but the only way I got it resolved and force a refresh was putting in a different SIM (in my case an AT&T Freedompop SIM and a no longer active Indonesian SIM worked). Sprint's RCS framework is still kind of flaky in my experience. It will randomly stop working for me and require a reboot. The same thing happens with family members with different devices. I feel like you receiving a notification after every reboot isn't normal. You can try switching to Google Messenger and see if that fixes the issues on either of your devices.

    Galaxy S9 Series user thread

    I never got a confirmation text on my Pixel 1 or 2. Just the app saying it's enabled. In my experience it takes about 2 days after activation for RCS to be able to be turned on. Before that time it fails for some reason. Also, if you previously had the same SIM active with a different Sprint line in that phone (ie, you swapped the phone to a different line on your account without also swapping the SIM), sometimes that blocks RCS indefinitely. The fix is swapping the SIM temporarily, then swapping back. That seems to reset RCS config. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    I'm not sure why it changes sometimes. Usually it's because for some reason the site it's connected to kicks it off and forces it to scan (config change perhaps). In my experience it won't switch back even with a reboot. A full factory reset is required if the PCI it connected to is still in range. Supposedly the previous software update fixed this issue and allows it to handoff between donors, but in my experience it doesn't really work. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    The magic box seems to max out around 70-80 Mbps. The Airave is the same. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    5g : what's required ?

    It's non ionizing radiation. All light is technically radiation. Shining a flash light at the back of your head isn't going to cause you any issues whether it's dim or bright (though brighter might warm you up a bit. Like a light bulb giving off heat. It's exactly the same). And that's a much higher frequency than LTE or 5G frequencies. It's only when you get into highly energetic frequencies that they become ionizing (enough energy to strip off electrons basically, thus making atoms/molecules reactive) and dangerous. X rays are an example of ionizing radiation. To put this more into perspective, let's say we're using frequency at 28 GHz for 5G. That is WELL below ionizing. Visible light is 430-770 Thz. Ionizing radiation begins above 770 Thz in the upper ultraviolet range. X rays are 30 petaherz (3*10^16 Hz) to 30 exaherts (3*10^19 Hz). They're not even remotely close. I'll also add that cell phones transmit at a lower power than a flashlight. Even the magic box is outputting less energy than many flashlights. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
