Been to two Rite Aides and Walgreens. Both had MBs and they performed pretty solidly. Good to see Sprint making these happen.

Nice! There’s a CVS by me that could definitely use one. Hope they work out a deal with them to place them there as well.

Is this nationwide?    It should be.

I'll have to pay attention next time.   Was just in Rite-Aide by my house, but didn't look/notice.   I wish Kroger would strike a deal.   It's an absolute "0" signal zone in our Kroger.      Always has been!

Sure would be nice if it is. People who have better coverage tend to spend more time in stores and spend more money. The coverage is also necessary for using a store’s mobile app for prescriptions and discounts when in-store. People shopping also call or video chat with others at home or elsewhere to ensure they’re buying the right product. Having a poor wireless experience reflects not only on Sprint as a Carrier but the retail store as well.

Sounds like this message on Magic Boxes is finally getting through to Walgreens and Rite-Aid. Hopefully CVS as well.

A deal with Kroger would be awesome. Sprint’s coverage and network perception could really improve if it places Magic Boxes where people tend to spend a lot of time: Retail and Big Box stores.

Seriously! Target would be huge since they are a growing business and their stores tend to be so big that even local macro sites signal become faint and congested on any carrier.

Unfortunately, Sprint does not appear to be offering the 512GB version for some reason. While I don't care about the storage, the extra 2GB of RAM would be nice.

Yeah I'm a little bummed because I'm in the exact same boat. The extra storage I can take it or leave it, but I would rather have the additional 2GB of RAM. Not carrying the upgraded version when every other carrier will be is just such a Sprint thing to do. :rolleyes:

Me myself I wouldnt pay an extra almost 300 dollars for 2 extra GB of RAM.. that's just me

Sprint I'm sure analyzed this and came to the conclusion a lot of customers won't choose that higher end option

Agreed! The more stores Sprint makes deals for Magic Boxes with the better!

I would love to see Sprint give us the ability to suggest/submit Magic Box locations/business names for them to reach out to. (Whether through the My Sprint app or the Sprint Website.) I’ve suggested this to Sprint in the past and have heard it’s supposedly in the works.

With 260000+ magic boxs you can't be too suprised to run into a few. With a pace of 65k last quarter your only going to see more. 

These are a great way to slide small cells into nimby places.

Hopefully Sprint doesn’t run into supply issues with the new version of the Magic Box coming out as it did for prior versions of it. I recall Marcelo being pretty unhappy with the inability to sufficiently scale Magic Box production. Not sure what the actual issue behind it was at the time.

Sprint needs to go down the list of the highest trafficked national/regional retail brands and strike deals with them to place Magic Boxes across the country in all locations which need them. This is smart capex because it brings coverage to where the Sprint customers are. No doubt there are tools and metrics Sprint can use to determine this, including the “Location and Customer Data Analysis Feature” in the My Sprint App.

Unfortunately I don't have a device to trade in, boo. $55 a month is a bit much to have a play line $35 would have been fine.

Has anyone else seen any traces of upload CA? As of today every b41 tower in my city has it except the only Nokia tower. Some type of low power mode but it's real.

I have not seen anything yet, but I’m in a Samsung market.

Maybe users on other Nokia/Ericsson markets can chime in?

Every tower in my county with b41 is Ericsson except my home tower. That one is Nokia and the only one without 2xCA popping up.

I have not seen it. I'm using an LG G7 which supports it, though the engineering screen does not show a spot for a SCC upload carrier.

You only have one site with Nokia equipment? All of the ones around me except one are Nokia. The Ericsson site still doesn't seem to have functioning 3xCA DL so I doubt it has 2xCA UL.

The most recent phones so support 2xCA UL on B41. G7, S9, S9+, there might be a couple others.

Yes. My home tower has had b41 for 2 years now. The other towers started in January 2018.

    • I activated two Xs Max iPhones via Sprint’s website on Friday, both had the same problem. After the first error, I carefully checked the IMEI that Sprint’s website listed, and the last digit was missing. I manually input the IMEI and activated without problems. When I began the second activation I checked the IMEI first, and the website was again incorrect. So I manually input the IMEI and successfully activated the second phone.
    • Decimal GCI as been there in the Premier Hunters maps for a long time.  Typically we try to keep sponsor maps a little easier to understand, but could do it if requested.
    • I’m about to upgrade four of our lines to iPhone XS in the next few days. The other 3 lines we have are on Android. I’ve always waited for the first batch to ship out in case there are any zero-day problems with the device, software, activation or accessories availability. This year it’s UPS delivery and activation issues. Hope everything settles down this week.
    • records request through the city of san diego...  the city has a master agreement with mobilitie for up to 500 sites.   there should be a 3rd and 4th batch soon, since the 2nd batch isn't even done yet ( I just saw them replace a light pole in pacific beach yesterday, its on the list. )   Just asking...any one know of any work being done in the city of san marcos?
