Does iPhone 5S rely on eCSFB?

I know that the new Android tri-band devices rely on eCSFB/CSFB to get calls across to your phone while on LTE.  

 

Does the iPhone also use eCSFB when it connects to LTE?  That is, if a tower has LTE 800 but has not had the eCSFB upgrade, then can iPhone 5S connect to it AND also receives calls?

 

I read somewhere on this forum that iPhone rely on something else to do this. 

 

Thanks.

From what we know, the iPhone's don't rely on CSFB. From what I have gathered, when they are connected to LTE, they switch back to 1x/3G every couple of seconds so that they can check to see if their is a text or phone call coming to your phone. You won't notice if it is switching back real quick, because it only takes a fraction of a second to do so.

Ok...that's what i read i think...but i wasn't sure.  So, this is why iPhones don't have to wait for update to use LTE800....

I wouldn't say that CSFB has do with 800 LTE in particular, it's more for LTE in general. The iPhone 5S is able to connect to 800 LTE because Apple probably has it enabled out of the box, because Apple does with their phones what they want. Whereas with Android and the other manufacturers, they are at the will of the cellular companies, so the people with Android will have to wait until Sprint decides to let them use it.

"The iPhones are neither Triband nor SVLTE. They are capable of using CFSB,and use that feature on WCDMA networks. However, they do not use CSFB on the Sprint network as far as I know. But please understand that CSFB is not a device feature, but rather a network feature. It's just that a device transmission path design would necessitate its use.

The iPhone 5S and 5C are only dual band LTE on the Sprint network. But that probably explains why Apple chose to omot the third band and go the route of their devices using CSFB on the Sprint network.

The new iPhones are the same as the older single band iPhone 5 on the Sprint network, just with one more additional LTE band. They do not support SVLTE. I do not have enough understanding of Apple devices to explain why."

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
