Within the last week I started getting HD voice, while connected to wifi calling, when a Verizon user calls me.  However if i initiate the call instead HD voice is not there.  What gives?

Also, if i disconnect from wifi and use the cellular network (1x800), no HD voice no matter what.  its been so long so i can not remember but is there no HD voice on 1x?

HD Voice on 1x is only available between Sprint customers, I believe.  And between calling plus enabled devices.

1x Voice HD is Sprint to Sprint only.

HD voice using AMR-WB or EVS-WB is:

  • Calling Plus <--> Calling Plus (CP)
  •  Wifi Calling <--> Wifi Calling (WC)
  • WC <--> CP
  • VoLTE <--> VoLTE
  • VoLTE <--> WC
  • VoLTE <--> CP

 

HD Voice can be used during CP, WC, and VoLTE to another carriers network as well.

Best part is Shentel isn't on that tower.51fcc3e3dfc670b4beea34cb2e56fd5b.jpg

Shentel's on a different tower nearby though, I think.  I believe on the tall Exxon sign near I-81 and US-50.

I have record of AT&T and T-Mobile on that tower.  Am I correct in assuming Verizon is on it as well?  (Looks like T-Mobile is the bottom rack and AT&T the middle rack...)

You would be correct on all of that sir. If memory serves me correctly, the site on the Exxon sign was our frist B41 site.
I was at the new SU athletic/event center all day and every time I looked out the window it made me laugh. Per Google, the Exxon site is about 2000' away from there.

Good to know.  I just cant figure out why when I try to initiate the call on WC to Verizon, HD voice will not appear but the reverse it will (she calls me instead).  Everything else is the same.

I'm sure the settlement with AT&T (probably bad) is something else they're having to deal with.

What do we think about the cause of the delay being Sprint did well this past quarter and they got a really good deal in their settlement with AT&T? News like that could potentially kill the merger.

We think that isn't how these things work.

It is almost as if it was entirely predictable.

I've already told David this but someone is now claiming Sprint hasn't released their results cause of pending lawsuit's for lieing to investors. Made up but the individual claiming that

Very Nice!

I hope they also get out of the cars and do walking tests as well. Give someone a backpack and a large power cell pack and send them off exploring the city. I would gladly do it... and get my steps in!

Hit him up on Twitter and he might send you a V50. Worth a shot lol. Sounds like a fun way to get the cardio in!

Numbers aren’t great .. 169 thousand in gains most of this is coming from prepaid migrations without this they only do 40K +. At a loss of 189K.. tough times at sprint.. and another loss of 539m free cash flow

Yeah. That’s true.

They’ve got 2.5 GHz on about 80% of their Macro Sites, 30,000 small cells (including mini macros and strand mounts), and about 1,500 Massive MIMO units.

This could have been much worse. However, at a certain point, Sprint will run out of road on its cost cutting initiatives.

They’re painting a honest picture now to get that merger approved.

 

 

They sound so boring over the phone. My God.

Ya, at this point there’s absolutely no justification for any further network growth as there is absolutely no return in investment.. if no merger, I think it’s a given sprint lowers capex immediately. Not trying to be super negative, but these numbers with debt that’s coming due. No way sprint as a stand alone keeps up spending on capex

I think the reason for the shareholder lawsuits is that these reports weren’t completely honest.... and because its FCC Filings painted an honest assessment of Sprint’s situation.

These investor reports do not contain the apocalyptic data/language that Sprint used in its FCC filings to support its case for a merger.

See the Sprint’s current liquidity status on page 20: https://investors.sprint.com/files/doc_financials/quarterly/2018/Q4/Fiscal-4Q18-Sprint-Quarterly-Investor-Update-FINAL.pdf

It seems it’s starting to get thin...

I listened to the Investor's Relations webcast...   I was so difficult to listen to.   I don't even know who Sprint had speaking as I didn't recognize 2 of them.    No more Marcelo, as I know.. he's moved on...  nothing from the CTO, ...    they didn't really offer many answers to many questions... kind of Rubbish.   Just makes me hope the merger happens soon.    The last question and answer:  Basically the out look on Sprint's future if the merger doesn't go through?  Answer:  Sprint will not be able to operate as a national carrier as we know it.  They will be unable to compete with the others.

    • Alright, I'm trying it out.  So far, following Robert's procedure still resulted in no logging.  Trying a few more variations on it with more reboots.  I'm assuming random chance, rather than a specific procedure, will start the logging. I've actually had another weird database issue lately.  I use SQLiteStudio to manage my data, and for my G8X (Android 9), when I dump out the database, I have to run a "vacuum" operation on it in order to make it save properly after editing, rather than just committing the data.  If I merely commit and send it back to the phone, the import appears to work, but none of my rows get updated.  It's only that particular one; my other phones (Android 8 for all of them) do not have that problem, and I have Sprint and US Cellular in the same database which gets shared between the two phones.  If it wasn't for Robert's similar experience, I'd wonder if it wasn't a coincidence, and whether Android 9 has upgraded SQLite somehow and the two aren't entirely compatible anymore.  The vacuum operation shrinks the size of my .db file from 5.8MB to 5.2MB, but if I dump it out again immediately after importing on my G8X, it dumps at 5.8MB.  But on my new US Cellular Moto E5 Play, when I dump it back out, it's still 5.2MB with nothing having changed, as if it were being treated as read-only, except that if I change a note within the app, it does actually update in the dumped database file without updating the last_time field.  All of my new E5 Play phones are rooted; if there's any operation I can do as root that might be helpful either in tracking it down or fixing it, let me know. ===== Separately, I'm loving the "accent" option.  Very useful.  Two comments though.  1)  Can you set the yellow accent for Shentel?  It doesn't seem to show any accent at all when set to Shentel.  2)  Can you have it follow the PLMN rather than the provider name?  I am still having that issue where, for example, connecting to US Cellular B5 sometimes calls it Sprint B5 or Shentel B5.  So I might get the yellow accent when the PLMN clearly shows I'm on US Cellular. You can actually sort of see both issues at once here; it says I'm connected to Shentel B5 rather than US Cellular B5, and also is not showing an accent.  https://imgur.com/a/28YwFfo Also, two additional questions:  1) Are you using the same blue shade for AT&T and US Cellular?  They certainly look similar to me, and Sprint can currently roam on both.  Despite the corporate color of US Cellular being a shade of blue, I always use green for US Cellular since it's largely in more rural areas and green makes it a lot easier to distinguish from AT&T.  2)  Can you add cyan and magenta as text color options?  Because I now carry a phone for each carrier, and four of them are Moto E5 Play phones, having the colors for the text might be a way to help tell them apart at a glance easier.  But there's no magenta for T-Mobile, and the current blue option which I would use for AT&T is way too dark.  I think the red feels too dark as well, but I'm not sure what to do about that. - Trip
    • I checked out your report; it all looks good, nothing to indicate that logging might not work. These logging glitches are very odd and difficult to reproduce across devices sometimes, and it drives me mad. As Robert mentioned before me, his Motorola had similar issues. I couldn't find anything wrong on my end but a couple of reboots did the trick. I have no idea how or why that would fix anything, but please give his suggestion a try and let me know..
    • I had this issue when I purchased a Moto Z2 Force.  I uploaded my log file immediately after activating and installing SCP from my previous phone.  Drove me nuts.  What I finally did to solve the problem...I had to disable the logger, reboot, re-enable the logger, reboot and then it worked. Robert
    • I think I have been experiencing that with low-numbered Verizon 1X IDs (I never connect to Verizon LTE). I assumed it was something on my end, but maybe it's related.. I'll have to try getting some specifics and monitor that thread.
