    • LTE if you like, this uses the signal from the tower to supply data to the MB to rebroadcast a clean, local signal. I haven't heard of these being options. Sounds like you got a newer one. Neat! If you have a WiFi network you would like to use, give it a try. You can always reset these things. 
    • Hi! Newb to the magicbox. I just had one delivered. Easy set up. Under the settings though, it gives me the opinions of: LTE Backhaul WiFi Backhaul Ethernet Backhaul I’m at a loss of which to choose. Ethernet is out because I can’t get to it. I haven’t found anywhere explaining why I would choose LTE vs WiFi.   Help?
    • The unverified rumor floating around reddit is that iPhone 8 and higher will get the ability to enable VoLTE when Apple releases IOS 12.1.1.  There were changes made to the iPhone hardware components between the iPhone 7 and 8 models and the new IOS carrier bundle only has Sprint VoLTE code in it that works on that newer hardware.  It is possible to enable VoLTE on older iPhones as other providers have done so but they did so when those older iPhones were current.  Since the majority of Sprint iPhone users have a phone released in the past 2 years, a special update just for the older iphones seems unlikely when they have to spend time working to get VoLTE rolled out for other newer phones.  Phones without VoLTE should continue to work for a while as Sprint previously said they are not planning on completely shutting down CDMA for a couple years.
    • Will Sprint enable VoLTE on older iPhones such as the 6 or 6s?
