Given the fact that Virgin has access to Extended Coverage ever since it's Inner Circle plan still now with it's current one at least according to customer service. Shouldn't Virgin be using PRL 55070 like it was with Inner Circle or is 7080 correct? I feel like there's an issue that isn't being paid attention too. Does PRL 7080 have the necessary stuff to make the device roam on Sprints extended partners.
When Virgin Mobile introduced their Inner Circle plan they added Extended coverage giving them the same coverage as Sprint Postpaid. And a few months ago when Virgin did away with its Inner Circle plan and its iPhone only to the current plan lineup and devices I figured they'd backtrack on the roaming and go back to Sprint only. While they may not have updated their coverage map it would seem they are not allowing roaming as my LG Tribute Dynasty which is compatible with US Cellular roaming is being restricted and blocked post activation. Before hands free activation began I was able to go into the devices network and roaming settings and switch on voice roaming, which worked, it immediately connected to US Cellular, then the hands free activation started which couldn't complete due to no data until I switched on wifi, but after the device rebooted, the voice roaming was turned off and greyed out so it couldn't be switched back on.
I know this device is capable of roaming, it has band 12 and band 5 for LTE and the CDMA band necessary to roam onto US Cellulars CDMA network, which again it was able to due prior to activation. If Virgin Mobile is going to continue having roaming as an option then it should work otherwise they need to remove it from their coverage map. I've attempted to take the issue up with Virgin but they tell me that they'll help me with any other issue, except roaming. I believe it has something to do with the PRL since it is what determines the devices roaming. I found a old Virgin device from before Inner Circle started, in it was PRL 7080 the same one as it has now, back then Virgin was the home network on Sprint only, no data or voice roaming.
I don't know where the issue is with this and I'm hoping after filing a complaint with the FCC which has been served that it is either corrected and fixed and roaming starts working, or Virgin removes it from their coverage map if they're not going to allow it. I've asked customer service if the coverage map and the roaming on it applies to current customers or if it was just Inner Circle and they say it does apply to the current plans. If so, and if I have a device that is compatible (LG Tribute Dynasty), why is it being restricted.
Hey guys I was browsing one of my news applications and I found interesting article about Verizon Wireless in Maine I'm sharing the link.
Tell me what you think.
I'm stuck having to use an Airave in my apartment because ever since my landlord moved in downstairs and did major renovations, we've not been able to get much if any Sprint signal up here. I hate it because it's 3G only. Is there any chance Sprint will get it together and offer an LTE Airave? I'm guessing not, but it would be cool if they did.
Inter-eNB carrier aggregation is possible and standardized (in the more recent releases) although it requires a unified backend core, so it won't be of much help until the transitional period has ended.
Does anyone have any pull to get a Magic Box Gold w/ voice amp? I have a gen 2 which works great for LTE but could really use the voice solution. The Airave doesn’t work for me as I don’t have a internet connection for it. I was promised by care like 5 times and then finally informed they are only for business accounts now.
Hey Brad, I just meant with any of those, but all together would be a great second step. I have a few embedded radios and available band combinations in generic firmware tend to be broad. Unfortunately Band 41 has limited FDD aggregation band support. Band 25/26 is available so Ideally 2 and 5 fall in there like dood mentions below.
Great solution! Super nice. My guess is development will gear more towards n41 but in the meantime this would be fantastic. I wonder if we will see a solution that allows us to aggregate channels from differing eNodeB or sectors. This would help in the transitional period of the merger.
I also wonder if this is possible with that fancy virtualized dual action but one end point core all the software magicians speak of. I believe the canadien carriers have an example of what I am referring to.
