  1. Today
  2. NO!! The address for Walmart is 41301 US-280, Sylacauga, AL 35150
  3. the Wal-Mart address comes up as invalid too, right?
  4. VoLTE works surprisingly well on an unsupported device at the moment. I've forced it on the Pixel 3 XL, which Sprint insists is not possible, and it works great. It ignores all the per eNB enable/disable settings that Sprint broadcasts, so it's working on magic boxes and in theory unlaunched markets. I tested the QoS on it today in a rush hour subway station where Hangouts messages were taking 30-60+ seconds to send due to congestion, and it worked flawlessly. Honestly, I think whatever weird/non-standard(?) thing Sprint is doing to enable/disable it on a per eNB level is causing a lot of stability problems with supported devices, where it turns off and won't go back on, etc. Once that is overridden, it works really well, at least if you're in an area without 3G drops Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Looks like a Nokia Massive MIMO unit! How are speeds around that area now?
  6. Yesterday
  7. I can't bring myself to do it...I'm skeered!! I don't understand what's going on...however, maybe it's a good thing that Justin last emailed me 2 days ago saying that "I'm sorry, after meeting with my team, it has been discovered that MB is no longer going to work in your location..." Paraphrasing here..but that's pretty much what he said to me. Then, I conducted my test .....by going to Walmart with my inverter and MB Gold edition... Once I saw that the MB connected and was finally working as it should, I unplugged and came home with it..and put the Gold in place of the Demo Acct magic box..which is where it's at right now and working normally. I took some pics while at Wal-mart of the box connected to the relay, then broadcasting b41 like it should..and also saved my GPS coordinates in a longitude/latitude format...and when I got to my PC at home, I pieced together the photos of the mb, the GPS coordinates, and sent Justin an email saying that I hated to hear about the boxes no longer working..but that I have been using magic boxes flawlessly for over a year (since launch/inception) and never an issue. So it really was bad news for us to hear we can no longer use it after great service for the past 1 year +++. I haven't heard back yet. I hope that's a sign that he took what I said and isn't going to just chalk it up to listening to GIS software... This area should be fine for MB use...and I hope they discover what is causing this entire central AL area to show up as unavail to use magic box in the address tester. I don't know exactly how much area it is but EVERY single address that I've entered in the magic box address site says unavailable. That CANNOT be right...especially with all the bandwidth that Sprint has in this area... CAVEAT: At launch, this area was PERFECTLY APPROVED for a magic box. SOMETHING has changed in their GIS mapping software or location data..not sure what. But my kids raced through their roaming data in 1 week without the magic box being on...it's really starting to bite...

Well we're still using terabytes, and now he sees it as viable because merger. Funny huh? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  9. Try a factory data reset. Fingers crossed!
  10. I've already rebooted this box (MB Gold) since I got home -- Someone parked in front of it and caused it to drop..so I rebooted ...and it's done came back on from a reboot. So...it seems as though the location data is dependent on which version of the MB that you have. (Also noted, the display on the MB Gold looks different -- so it obviously has taken a firmware update).
  11. I have heard from sources of mixed reliability that T-Mobile will be adding a lot 600Mhz sites in the coming weeks They currently have one site near the lake on the east side.
  12. Learned something about the WiFi-calling that might help folks here, something I did not know about Apps or App properties/permissions and roaming data restrictions. Background: WiFi-calling has difficulty working when Sprint cellular signal is weak and/or when roaming, but fine when Sprint cellular signal is strong. Get constant error of location can not be determined, Wi-Fi calling then does not work. Maybe partial resolution: Go to Settings (general) > Apps > click overflow menu dots top right > show system apps > search for "calling" > click on Wi-Fi Calling > Mobile data > change "Restrict background data" to "Never" from "while roaming only". Doesn't make a ton of sense since WiFi calling isn't using "Mobile Data", but it appears to help get LESS of the above location errors, and Wi-Fi calling actually works when in a limited cellular network environment. Perhaps it is also not causing a timeout in the app? Hard to say. I went ahead and set this same permission on a lot of apps that I would like to behave better while roaming like Google, etc.
  13. Yeah, I know my status bounced back and forth from shipping week of 3/18 and shipping week of 3/25.
  14. Well it says the week of 3/18 so i wouldn't start to worry until next week. Don't feel bad though, I registered on the 3/7 and mines ship the week of 3/25
  15. The latest... https://ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/103182655907212/Sprint Ex Parte Notice (Mar. 14 Meetings) - 3.18.2019 [AS-FILED].pdf https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2019/03/21/sprint-ceo-michel-combes-fcc-standalone-comments.html
  16. They wouldn't even need to drop 800's LTE. Remember that post-merger they'll have B12 and B71 available for 5G. Carving out an extra 5 MHz won't buy much, compared to the 20 MHz FD in 600. I'm going to guess Sprint will cut PCS CDMA 12/31/21, with an extra year for 800. Could be EOY 2021 for everything depending on when the merger happens. The issue right now is that they still haven't launched VoLTE so who knows even how much traffic they can shunt away from CDMA with the phones that are in the field right now.
  17. I even registered for it later in the day on 3/6 (around 9pm EST)
  18. Yes, I received an alert on my phone (from the Shop Samsung app) that they shipped. I also received an email. Both had a FedEx tracking number.
  19. Did you ever have shipping information? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  20. I will definitely say that on a scale of one to attend with my experience what's the S10 is that I would rate it about a 7 out of 10 the really bad battery life that I had even with the machine learning completed and knowing my usage patterns and the adaptive battery option enabled still wasn't that great so it knock three points off what I would put down and say was an excellent phone but to those who like it or power to then Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  21. My buds were delivered today. I registered on 3/6.
