  1. It's been this way for a couple years for me, but getting worse. It can't really get worse than it is now unless Sprint adds more customers, since they've already thinned CDMA down to the minimum. The addition of calling plus and VoLTE will take load off of CDMA, so it should start to improve actually. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. My guess would be the loss of the extra 1x carriers that are now used for the second B25 carrier. The remaining 1x carrier is likely overloaded, resulting in dropped calls or failed calls. 1x800 in some markets (Pittsburgh, SF) is so overloaded that calls are compressed to the point of being unintelligible at times. 1x1900 fairs better, but still shows signs of being overloaded at times.

  3. Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    I found that the airave wifi crawls for a bit shortly after it's booted (likely it's still booting internally for a while after first broadcasting a signal) and when using a lot of LTE data. Basically, I think it gets CPU limited and wifi or general routing is the first thing to get cut (lower CPU scheduling priority perhaps). Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. Yes, that's what the Essential engineering screen looks like. The Kyocera Hydro Icon I have on FreedomPop for logging has the same style. It's actually kind of nice, since it stays up as an overlay and makes screenshots more informative (such as NSG or SCP running, or a speed test). Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. I think it's only single carrier B25. I have logs from a couple months ago that covers there. The service is pretty bad, but Verizon roaming was also failing, and AT&T was no service indoors, so it could just be a bad area for all providers. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    Sure it is. The eNB completely controls it. With proper VoLTE I imagine it will take being on a call into consideration for band selection. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Weird. I luckily haven't had any problems since Tapatalk integration was added back. I wonder if it's something in our configuration or user accounts that's triggering it? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  8. Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    I've noticed my Pixel 2 XL has a lower rsrp for B41 (by about 5-10 dbm) than the original Pixel XL, but will hold onto it longer in the same location. 5 ghz wifi is also consistently 10 dbm weaker, but it seems to hold it and work fine at the weaker signal level. B25 and B26 are exactly the same on both devices, but it seems the 2 XL may hold LTE a bit longer before dropping to 3G Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Yeah I've noticed my MB will switch between B41 carriers as PCC, which it didn't used to do. I was told if it goes to B25 that it will eventually make it back to B41. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  10. Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    Got mine yesterday and have to RMA it. I'll be out of town for 2 weeks so I may just return it and order it again when QC issues are sorted out. Graininess isn't bad, and the blue tint is only bad when it's on my desk. But I have a dead pixel in the middle of the screen, a pulsing high pitched noise in the earpiece only while on a call (including Hangouts) which seems to be synced with wifi traffic on 5 ghz, awful wifi handoffs (it drops the AP and won't see it again for over a minute even with active scanning), and the phone won't use any GLONASS satellites, so location accuracy takes a hit (7 vs 16 satellites total on my Pixel 1 XL). I do like the way it feels though, it has a nice weight and shape, and the camera is nice. It's a bit snappier than my Pixel XL. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    The MB will show how many active connections there are (ie actively transmitting data, not idling). That screen can take 30 seconds or so to refresh though, when you first go to it it will show 0 connected. There's no way to see how many are connected to the airave. I think the airave has a limit of 16 concurrent connections and the MB is 64? But lilotimz would know for sure. As for MVNOs, I'm not sure what PLMNs the MB and Airave broadcast, if any, in addition to 310120.
  12. [Discontinued] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    I think they would basically buy Sprint's owned tower locations, and Sprint would lease them back at some rate. The lease could be well below market value. This would give Sprint a cash infusion without SoftBank directly investing and triggering them to buy the remaining shares I'm not sure how many locations Sprint owns. Or perhaps they'll just take over Sprint's lease and then sublet it back to Sprint at a discount. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  13. Doubtful. I think Sprint has basically written them off at this point. Clients being updated is more important than the AP, at least in a typical home use case. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  14. Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    That was a legacy airave. Some people (myself included) were approved by the booster team to have 2 MBs or a MB and Airave 3, for use at multiple locations. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Yeah you need to use a pin. It's not the yellow one, it's the other one.
