HD Voice


Vince

Recommended Posts

I have a question. Are we absolutely certain that the sprint iPhone 5s does not support hd voice? Just now, I called my wife (5s Sprint) and experienced hd voice for the first time. I have made hd calls on T-Mobile, and have experienced hd voice via FaceTime audio with her and other iPhone friends so I know what it sounds like. It was over cellular, and incredibly clear, and she even asked me, "why does this sound so weird but good? It's so clear." I made her wait while I pulled some 1x field test screen shots, but I don't know what to look for on an iPhone.

That is one thing we aren't sure of. I wish I knew how to identify it on the iPhone, but I don't know if it's listed in those screen shots.

Nope.  Those screenshots do not offer any proof.

Maybe in that "active set info" menu that I didn't look at. My wife was growing impatient while I dealt with what she calls my "nerd stuff." I call her again and look at that sub menu. I know what I was hearing, and it was outrageously clear and awesome.

I figured not. It's unfortunate too, because I would like to know more details about voice protocols used on the iPhone too.

Active set info has to do with your connection to the Sprint Network. I don't remember all the details, but that's the gist of it.

Yeah, active set was useless. All I know is, I love this. I wonder how long it's been active here. I rarely call her outside of my work truck (using Bluetooth). I know I made a non-Bluetooth call to her a few days ago, and didn't experience this. Maybe it was turned on in the last few days.

Not sure if it's coincidence, but we both upgraded to 7.1 yesterday, and I noticed the carrier bundle changed to 16.0 from 15.1. I know those usually change with an iOS upgrade, and sometimes can be pushed by the provider to enable/disable features. Maybe it was activated with 16.0

Interesting. That will give me a reason to tell my girlfriend to upgrade to 7.1 then, and lose the jailbreak. It'd be cool if someone could confirm that HD voice didn't work on 7.0.6, but started working on 7.1 in an HD enabled area.

 

Somehow she inherited my 5C when I got a Nexus. Not sure how that happened. :rolleyes:

Take my thoughts with a grain of salt. I'm not sure what enabled hd voice. I don't want to influence people to get 7.1 with that new carrier bundle.

    • Yup. Very true. We were originally on an Everything Data 1500 Plan, which got Unlimited Minutes thanks to Marcelo's "Loyalty Benefits" offer. We then switched to Unlimited Freedom (with the Free HD add-on that Sprint originally wanted $20/month per line for.... remember that?) because the pricing was better with "iPhone for Life", vs. the "Loyalty Credit" for staying on a Legacy Plan. After that, I ran the numbers and switched us over to Sprint MAX, especially for the international travel benefits. There's absolutely no reason for us to switch to Go5G Plus or Go5G Next if we're going to do BYOD by purchasing from Apple/Samsung/Google directly as we've been doing. These new plans aren't priced for current customers to switch to. They're price for new customers, where they throw in a free line, etc. It's gone from "Uncarrier" to "Carrier". What a shame.
    • Strange business model that they keep around all these pricing plans. 1000s of plans per carrier is reportedly not uncommon.  Training customer support must be a nightmare. Even MVNOs have legacy plans. A downside of their contract mentality I guess. Best to change contracts during a recession. But then all carriers try to squeeze out legacy plan benefits as they grow old.  
    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:
