  1. Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    It is. However, their parents' house a quarter mile CLOSER to the macro site has an Airave 3, and calls go over 1x perfectly. I'll go over to his house today and re-check, maybe it needed a SW update. It was only online for 20min when I tested. Both homes have been using the Airave as a Wi-Fi router as well now. At the parents' house, it's needed a reboot when Wi-Fi gets dodgy, but has since been fine. Every device connects at healthy 802.11ac speeds. But, I've heard complaints of them losing signal in the middle of Netflix streams, or trying to watch a video on their iPhones. Hopefully they won't need to buy a separate router - worst case I can just flash their Wi-Fi Connect routers to get rid of the Sprint firmware and run it in tandem with the Airave.
  2. Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    Got the Airave set up - it seems to only broadcast LTE and 3G. Calls will not go over 1x on it, they latch onto the very weak macro network. All lights are green. 3G and LTE work very well. Is this normal?
  3. Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    This is something my iPhone has never shown for some reason, despite messages sending over LTE quickly. I do not get IMS status unless I'm on Wi-Fi calling. In any case, I'm happy to get an Airave 3 in two of my family member's homes. Wi-Fi calling works, but sending iMessages still relies on the weak cellular signal and is extremely slow for them. I'm going to be disabling Wi-Fi calling on their devices. Having MMS, SMS, and iMessage through LTE on the Airave will complete everything and make messaging a non-issue moving forward. (Since MMS doesn't go through Wi-Fi calling at all) Plus, they'll have HD voice working when they're on the macro network again!
  4. Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    Basic SMS text to a single recipient is very quick on my iPhone. I believe it was stated that they use LTE for this a year or two ago. I guess there’s few ways to test this, though. Perhaps someone with an LTE-only S1000 can check? (Assuming there is no native 1x macro signal in their location)
  5. Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    Does MMS (Picture messages) go over LTE on an iPhone? I forgot. SMS does, can't remember if non-iMessage picture messages do though.
  6. iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    HD voice is more of a software thing, it's pushed to the device through carrier updates once your device connects to the network. If the device works on the Sprint network, it'll have HD voice.
  7. I don't know if this was stated a long time ago, but is there a reason Albany isn't getting Band 41? Is there another party interfering with its deployment, like the IBEZ issue with 800Mhz? I never followed Albany enough to search for a reason why this was happening, but a friend moved there recently and is predictably experiencing horrid speeds in populated areas.
  8. iOS11 - now available.

    I've got an iPhone 7, you? Perhaps this update is model-specific?
  9. iOS11 - now available.

    New carrier update with iOS 11.1. It updates to Sprint 30.0, and when you check, it will prompt you to update again taking it to Sprint 30.1. And no, Calling Plus/VoLTE did not get added after the carrier update.
  10. I counted ~8 3G only sites left in DE on the map. Soooooo close! In real life, there might be less as of this writing.
  11. Still waiting on that Felton site to get LTE, figures the only one I really need down there is one of the last. Looks like DE got a big update in the last coverage map though. Filling in very nicely.
  12. Mobile hotspot in Extended LTE

    Right, and on the device itself (for 99% of users) there’s no way to know since both types of roaming will say Extended LTE, correct?
  13. Mobile hotspot in Extended LTE

    That might be risky, isn't there still Extended LTE non-native roaming as well? The user would have to be 100% sure they are in the correct part of the coverage map that is treated as native roaming before doing this. I think...?
  14. Coverage Map Update 10/15/17

    Sprint has seriously gotten to work in the last few months eliminating the rest of the 3G-only sites. It should have happened years ago, but we're finally there.
  15. Apple Watch Poor LTE Performance

    Nice find!!
