  1. VoLTE/Calling+ on iPhone

    It's possible that when VoLTE prioritization goes into effect, what you're seeing will go away. -105 to -115 should be completely usable, especially on a low-bandwidth voice call. It's possible that the sites are overloaded with other traffic and low signal just amplifies the problem.
  2. VoLTE/Calling+ on iPhone

    This would ensure that when there's call drops, the user would at least know why. Opt-in would be great, I'd love to start testing it in my market. Every site here is LTE with no drops, I think the experience would be positive.
  3. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Understood - but I doubt this is the case with the question at hand. Barely any Sprint phones support this and it's currently opt-in for it to work.
  4. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    If he has an Airave2, he should call and get it swapped out for an Airave 3 LTE. The Airave 3 broadcasts 1x, 3G, and LTE, whereas the Magic Box only broadcasts LTE. Right now, calls don't go over LTE, so a Magic box won't assist with calling. Airave 3 doesn't do HD voice either. When Voice over LTE is implemented in the future, calls will be HD and go over the LTE that the Airave broadcasts.
  5. Drove up to Ithaca today and mapped RT96 on Sensorly. Full LTE the whole way! Sitting in Ithaca commons right now, every business has full LTE indoors. I’m curious if they have a small-cell here - the service is excellent. EDIT: Went to a few more buildings, my phone is locked onto an extremely strong Band 25 signal even within brick hallways. I didn't see Band 26 once. Really, really good signal here.
  6. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    Yup. Even if it technically IS Calling Plus on the backend, on the iPhone it will likely just use the same verbiage as it does on other VoLTE iPhones. "Use LTE for Voice & Data"
  7. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    Installing now, I might've waited if I saw this first! Hopefully a few more betas and perhaps it will "just work," rather than a setting appearing. New Carrier Sprint 31.5.1
  8. Network Mapping

    I'll be mapping Binghamton to Ithaca, NY next Friday. Fully deployed but not much on Sensorly!
  9. Felton site is showing B25/B26 LTE live in GLANCE, per a store employee on Reddit. Just hasn't caught up yet on the coverage map. :-)

    Curious if this device truly does support HPUE, as that Qualcomm page doesn't specify it. But the Orbic tech sheet does. Can any signal apps confirm if HPUE is active on an Android device?

    The $179 price might be a giveaway, too.
  12. Orbic Wonder

    This phone looks to have some pretty modern specs despite its $179 price. http://www.orbic.us/content/documents/orbic_wonder-spec_sheet-100317.pdf USB-C, VoLTE, Wi-Fi calling, HPUE (!), and B25/B25 B25/B26 carrier aggregation. No mention of B41 CA but I'm assuming it's 2xCA or 3xCA. I'm considering picking one up to use with SignalCheck. Anyone picked one up yet?
  13. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Ha, well, at least you discovered a solution for those that this happens to in the future! Shouldn't have to do it, but it works. :-)
  14. Planning a trip to Phoenix/Sedona/Grand Canyon later this year. I noticed the Grand Canyon now has Extended LTE roaming on Sprint. Who is the provider there?
