  1. Hopefully both. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  2. Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

    Only data goes through a Magic Box so calls would have to go through a tower until the S7 gets calling plus. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. Cool, I'll check it out when I get back in town. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  4. Thank you. If you need anything else, let me know. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. Address of the site is 105 E South St, Woodstock, VA. The East facing sector has no data only on B26. B25 and B41 are fine. GCI of the bad sector is OFE1981A. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. Anyone know any of Shentel's cellular technicians in the Woodstock, VA area? The tower near my house in Woodstock has a dead B26 carrier just on one sector. I have reported it a couple times in the Sprint app, but a week later and it's still not working. My phone will connect to it, but no data will go through. I really just think Sprint hasn't told Shentel. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  7. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    From my personal experience, it seems my S8+ will start out on any band, but if it happens to go to B26, it likes to stay there for the remainder of the call, even when getting close to a tower.
  8. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    It would be nice to know Sprint's timeline and how soon they will start to prioritize voice traffic over LTE (true VoLTE), but I'm sure that's a pretty well guarded secret. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. Galaxy tab e

    It looks like the update from a few weeks ago was just a precursor. I just downloaded a new update yesterday, Android 7.1.1. So far, it looks pretty good, and maybe seems just a little faster than 6.0. The only thing I wish it had is a built in blue light filter. All the Samsung phone builds have had that in Android 7, but for some reason, they decided to omit it from the Tab E build. One nice feature is they finally put in a quick access button on the drop down for the hotspot. It's so much faster than having to dig through the settings just to turn the hotspot on.
  10. Apple Watch Poor LTE Performance

    I'm not an apple person, but is there a chance it's not latching onto B26? I could see how that could really limit your range. Otherwise, that's not good if its radio is that weak.
  11. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    Any chance you are using an older or slower SD card to save your recorded video? If you are, try recording video to device storage and see if that makes a difference.
  12. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    I usually just leave mine on all the time. It does seem to break up every once and a while, especially during the evening hours when network usage is typically high, so if I'm making an important call or expecting an important call (especially during evening hours), I usually just turn it off. I think this will be solved once Sprint implements true VoLTE, where voice calls get priority. Until then, it's nice, but needs some improvement to be as good as 1x calling. (Of course, what I said above is when connected to LTE, not Wifi.) It's definitely a good first step and it sure is nice to be able to look stuff up online while on a phone call. I've taken advantage of that numerous times.
  13. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    I have not seen any issues with battery life since turning on calling plus. I'm not saying it's not possible that you could be having problems, but also consider that it could be something else as well.
  14. Galaxy tab e

    I just updated my Tab E today to the newest build. It's been since late last year that it got an update, so at least they still are updating the security of it. Did you notice anything else different? It was over 300MB, so I would think that would include something other than security, but I haven't noticed anything else different.
  15. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    It's easy to turn on and off depending on the area you're in. It's a simple toggle on the pull down.
