    Pixel 2 by HTC User Thread

    Correct. No visual voicemail and no wifi calling or calling+. You can use conditional call forwarding with Google Voice though for visual voicemail. In my opinion it's better since you also get free transcriptions. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    One Way Messaging

    Assuming there's internet, you could get a raspberry pi and code something up with Tasker/autoremote/IFTTT. Maybe have the pi have a browser full screen, with a page open that displays whatever it receives from autoremote/IFTTT. It would involve some coding/scripting on your part. Depends how comfortable you are with it, and what your requirements are for the message. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. I think they've dropped support for it. You can't use an Airave 3 with it, as it will incorrectly QoS the Airave traffic and throttle it to a couple hundred KB/sec. Honestly your best bet is to flash a third party firmware to it. Merlin is pretty popular and is based on the stock firmware. OpenWRT / dd-wrt is also an option I believe, but I'm pretty sure hardware accelerated NAT isn't functional (you likely wouldn't notice anyway). Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    Really? I've never had an issue getting an MSL from Sprint. I just do a chat and say something along the lines of "Hi. I factory reset my phone and now it's asking me for something called an MSL. Can you help me with that?" If a rep won't give it to you, just try again with a different one. I actually just got the MSL a couple days ago for one of my devices that's on a corporate account that I don't have access to... Took 2 tries though because I didn't have the account PIN.

    What is the difference between Sprint APNs?

    Do you know if you can change a device with n.ispsn to r.ispsn to get a routable IP with it? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. So it seems there are at least 3 Sprint APNs: n.ispsn, r.ispsn, and x.ispsn. I remember seeing n.ispsn on some of my older devices. I have a hotspot from Calyx (via Mobile Citizen) that has a Sprint account that I can log into, and it's using r.ispsn. My Pixel 2 XL is using x.ispsn. Does anyone know what the difference is between them? My only guesses are that n.ispsn is "native", and r.ispsn is "reseller". Or perhaps n.ispsn is NATed via CGNAT and r.ispsn is "routed" meaning a public IP? I have confirmed that the hotspot that uses r.ispsn is assigned a public, routable IP. But that doesn't answer what x.ispsn is. My phone with x.ispsn is assigned a NATed IP.
  7. Network Signal Guru. It's a root app that basically interfaces with the Qualcomm engineering driver to give low level modem/radio details https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.qtrun.QuickTest
  8. Interesting. Have you looked at it in NSG? If so, does it show throughput only on one of the aggregated carriers? Or does the throughput on each drop by 2/3?
  9. That site is absolutely broadcasting 3 B41 carriers, and your phone has engaged 3xCA on it. It is active and live. 3xCA speeds aren't necessarily super fast. If the site has a lot of users on it or the signal isn't that great, speeds will be slower. My home site only gets about 15 Mbps during the day on 3xCA for example.

  10. Is 1x800 broadcasting? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  11. That box on the bottom is "new" (ie not on other installations). It looks like a fiber ONT, I believe you can see the thin fiber strand entering it on the bottom. So I would guess this is a fiber fed one. The fact that Sprint is likely using different backhaul providers in the same area is exciting. Were you able to get engineering screenshots? Or anything showing the earfcn of it? I'm curious if it uses a different earfcn than relay fed small cells. Also, if you happen to have NSG, looking at signaling for what PLMNs are broadcast would be useful. It would tell us if a non-relay small cell could serve as a donor for other small cells or magic boxes. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    Nope. I did for a period a while ago, but a power cycle fixed it. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Galaxy S9 Series user thread

    Yeah Sensorly was always the culprit when I noticed dramatically worse battery life. Somehow it seemed to reenable active background reporting (or maybe they call it passive) even when I hadn't used the app in months. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Yes, I've connected to probably 10+ in the wild. Yes, it's stored, since it doesn't rerun the initial setup. It's "sticky" and will reconnect to the same donor and same band as it was on previously. Only if this isn't found will it look for something else to connect to. Most models don't have batteries, and they behave the same. So it's stored on flash storage internally. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    New Verizon MVNO

    Well you might be able to tell. YouTube uses different bitrates for the different resolutions. For example, if you force a video to load in 4k on a 1080p screen, it will look better than a video at 1080p from YouTube. When I upload videos to YouTube, I'll actually reencode a 1080p video as 4k for the upload, because YouTube won't degrade the quality as much as if it was 1080p (I've done side by side comparisons). So in this case, a downsampled 1080p video will look better than one that's natively at 720p. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
