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.

I have to tell you all I am near tears right now.  I am so stoked that Marcelo listened to us, directly.  I am sure he listened to all the feedback he heard.  But I believe S4GRU was influential in th

I'm still shocked and amazed how successful S4GRU has been in staying online, remaining relevant and keeping quality members and staff all with member donations from a relatively small pool. When we

Maybe he's outside of the city limits. He'll tweet as soon as he's back in town with a data connection.

Is this nationwide?    It should be.

Walgreens/Rite Aide seems to be a nationwide deal, so far ive seen it in a few and others have as well in different regions.

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.

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. [emoji17]

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.

    • That's actually important information. If the Velvet can't get NR CA with a Sprint SIM, but can with a TMo one, that does indicate that the S21 may have something similar going on. At which point I don't think it's a matter of TMo wanting one way or the other. Rather, Sprint's core can't do NR CA because n41 was going to be the only band.
    • I agree. What differentiates the Everything Data plan from kickstart except hotspot and unthrottled data?    As for 5g I can get NSA 5g on a sprint sim (tna) but cannot get SA 5g unless I TNX and get throttled to 2.3 on video... Crazy.
    • I would say given the Everything Data plan wording and the premium price paid for Everything Data, you should have unthrottled.  If true, for me personally, this makes the purchase of any 5G phone from T-Mobile undesirable given that TNX is required to get 5G at all.  Where I live inside the Columbus Ohio beltway, the speed ranking is Sprint, then AT&T, then T-Mobile, then Verizon.  T-Mobile has improved, but not enough to change their ranking.  T-Mobile would likely win if they converted one of the two Sprint only sites near me to T-Mobile (no permits seen). The throttling should be validated against the physical network.  What happens if only band b25 is allowed so it is only on Sprint even with the TNX network?
    • Just drove by there today and SE03XC157 is back online. I guess the aforementioned wind storm temporarily knocked it offline.
    • Fast appears to be 20% slower than other speed tests... I have a 250 up and down fiber connect at home.. regularly at 270.   Just did a fast test twice... barely hit 200
