  1. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    https://imgur.com/gallery/cY2q4 Since getting my magic box setup, I've seen steady improvement in signal strength and download speed over the past couple weeks. No issues with any of our devices connecting to it. It's quite remarkable to go from barely any service to what is attached in the link above.

    My Tab E connected right away and hasn't had an issue so far. Hopefully you can get yours figured out.
  3. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Is there anyway to see what tower the magic box is connected to? I'm in a spot that is surrounded by towers, but they are not that close to me. The only place i could get LTE was on my upper floor, band 25 at best. I got my magic box a few days ago and it wouldn't connect the first couple of days. Then it finally latched onto a band 25 signal of about -117 on my upper floor, which did give me some LTE on the main floor and basement. Then I decided to move it out of the window and onto a shelf along an exterior wall, and bam, band 41, which I could never get on my phone. It's a weak band 41 at -122, but now I get almost 20 down and 2 up all over the house and yard (1/2 an acre). I'm curious as to which tower it's pulling the band 41 signal from.

    I got this email yesterday saying I needed to call sprint to confirm my magic box order, just a heads up for anyone still waiting for theirs. The lady I talked to said they are waiting for another shipment to arrive, anywhere between 2 weeks to 2 months.... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Is that a subsidized plan? If not, I would assume it wouldn't qualify. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    That's what I did a couple weeks ago. I also get a $10/ month loyalty credit on top of that. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    I probably need to wait for my wife's s7 to get the update for that..... not too many people I know use sprint around here, lol. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    What I've noticed so far here in the Minneapolis area, when receiving an LTE call, there is an initial lag from my end where the person on the other end won't hear me for a few seconds. Once they do, everything sounds great and clear. Maybe not crystal clear like HD voice though. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Definitely looking for any input on the new radio. My radio is rock solid right now and I'd hate for this update to wreck it. Sent from my 0PJA2 using Tapatalk

    It appears to me that CA is activated on the M9 even though you can't tell through the engineering screen. Below is what I can connect to according to signal check. I got 89 down with a fairly weak signal. I've only seen on signal check what appears to be a connection with 2 carriers indicated by 'Clearwire B41^2'. I haven't seen it on 'Sprint B41' but I've had a speed test on that of 97 down. See the screenshot below. Sent from my 0PJA2 using Tapatalk

    That top one is about what I got around the Maplewood mall a couple days ago. Sent from my 0PJA2 using Tapatalk
  13. HTC One M9 User Thread

    It's been awhile since I've posted on here, but I picked up an M9 a couple weeks ago after my M7 took a 20 min swim in the hot tub with me. First impressions, network wise, this thing is way better than my M7 ever was. I'm in the Minneapolis market and I rarely drop down to 3G now, and I mean rarely! I can even get Band 26 LTE in my basement now. Seems like band priority works correctly. I spend most of my time on B41. Speed wise, I just got a download speed of 97 MB. Overall, very impressed with this phone. Of course, I haven't used any of the other handsets to compare it, but I'm a fan of Sense. Sent from my 0PJA2 using Tapatalk
  14. That's excellent news! I thought maybe my device had you stumped, lol. [emoji3]
  15. I am on lollipop. Completely stock, not rooted. However, I can see all the info in the LTE Discovery app.
