Welcome to the User's thread! We have now closed the previous thread as people are ordering and receiving their Aqous devices now. Anyone received one or held one yet?

The position of the front facing camera is fine on the bottom and allows the coolness of the screen. Fits fine in the pocket. Good clarity on phone calls.

 

How's signalcheck and the reported info?

One of the Youtube reviews of the Boost model says he put in a Tmpbile SIM and it worked fine...???

Proven false. Device connects to sprint 3g without sim card.

Oh, so the phone is reading the Tmpobile SIM as nothing at all and just defaulting to Sprint/Boost?

 

Makes sense.

 

Phone should be available to unlock for international use right?

Why, exactly, are you getting this? It's not like you have Sprint service.

 

I use Sprint service when I travel.  And it seemed like a good device to play with, given its very inexpensive cash price.

You keep a Sprint line just for traveling? Wow, that is some dedication.

 

Well, I do run a Sprint site.  ;)

 

I used to just use a Ting line.  But I am going to go back with a $60 unlimited plan now with the Aquos.

Has anyone been able to use the phone yet? I told my mom it would be a good phone for her due to its low price. The only real negatives I've heard are camera isn't the best, and call quality isn't great due to the speaker being behind the screen and it can be quiet on both sides of the call. Can anyone verify this?

Call quality has been good to me.

Good to know. Thanks.

I'm surprised you didn't get a test product. How dare they make you pay for it.

 

I've played with it and I honestly like it. It is a very nice looking phone.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
