Has anyone with an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus touched any B41? If so how were the speeds?

I have the the 6 Plus. I have B41 quite frequently now.

 

Quick question though for others. I'm receiving B41 now, but I have no way of knowing if I'm using Spark or just using a single channel.

 

Anyway to find out using the new iPhone?

Spark is Band 41 (or rather just access to all bands depending on who you ask) the widest spectrum band available on sprint.

*3001#12345#* on the dialer and click call.

 

Then go to serving cell info and it'll show under band class what band you are connected to.

How you "know" your on B41 to begin with?

I meant it for him, Is he guessing he is on B41 or did he somehow confirm it.

He might have the impression that he can access all three bands at the same time. But if i remember correctly that would mean carrier aggregation. I might be wrong tho.

I know which band I'm at. I meant to say is how do I know if I'm getting spark.

 

I assume spark is all 3 bands connected at the same time

 

No.  Spark is just Band 41.  It's not possible to connect to all 3 bands at the same time.

You dont connect to all bands at the same time, "Spark" is just a marketing term for a device that can potentially access all three bands at any given time (separately not at the same time)

 

But, As Deval mentioned before, Sprint will add Carrier Aggregation later this year which will basically add another 20Mhz of spectrum on top of the already deployed 20Mhz. But unfortunately no device support this configuration just yet.

Is it possible for me to have B41 LTE and B26 1X voice at the same time.

 

And I don't mean using it at the same time either

 

 

:wacko:

 

 

Dude.

 

I'm just confused here. 800 has LTE and Voice.

1800 has voice and LTE on same band.

If I'm in B41 LTE, which band is using voice?

 

 

Band 26 is LTE ONLY

 

Not sure how many times we've gone over this. Band XX is the naming convention for an LTE band. Example: Band 25 (PCS LTE), Band 26 (SMR LTE), Band 41 ... etc. 

 

Band Class XX is the naming convection for voice/evdo. Band Class 10 is 1x800.

 

When you are connected to LTE, you do not have a voice connection. When you receive a call, a page is sent out through LTE directing your device to fall back to 1x to receive the call. You may fall back to 1x800 or 1x1900 depending on the circumstance

Understood completely. Thanks

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
