Just activated 6s (128GB) - First speedtest while in my work building, LTE only, NO wifi netted 90.45 down!

SRLTE.  This topic has come up in only one of the almost 500,000 posts in The Forums.  And that post was not even iPhone related.  I am surprised.  But I believe that I have discovered why all Sprint

I got 145 down the other day. First time ever having speeds that high.

Who will be first....  I hate to say that I will not be.  I am holding off for a few weeks before I purchase.  I have some other financial items that I need to address before I can do it.  Hopefully mid October.

Need to move to the east coast Josh!!!

No thanks! I hate the humidity. And Nevada has been bad enough the last 2 weeks.

My wife's shows delivered, but I don't think she knows it's out there right now.  UPS came real early this morning.  Usually they don't show up until 6-7 at night

 

Edit:  Just got a pic of it, but not activating until she backs up and we figure out what to do with getting the $1 deal.

It always seems like on days like today the UPS schedule is kinda off.  Usually we get late deliveries also but the last couple of times we had iPhones delivered they came around noon.

After speaking with chat, the only way we would qualify for the 1$ deal is if we paid off the lease. At this point we already have a killer deal with our loyalty credit and the buy back credit so Im just going to stick with it. 

 

And to qualify we would've all had to been eligible for our 2 year upgrade, or had our phones paid off. Only 1 device had the 2 year upgrade. And none were paid off. So I think the loyalty credit route was a better way. 1st line was just activated on our account. He's currently setting everything up now.

Got lucky and walked into the local store this morning at 8 and snagged the last 6s Plus 64G (space grey). Had problems with the Reps getting the new promotion prices to work, but after a few calls they got it all worked out. Restoring from backup and then time to play play play!

 

Rumor: I work for a cell tower construction company and was aware of Verizon banning all service affecting work from midnight last night to Monday, but my boss told me today that Apple has demanded all carriers implement this for this weekend just to help guarantee that all iPhone 6s users would have no issues. All mighty Apple!!

Tried my luck at walking into a Sprint store at 1pm. All 6s models were in stock, no 6s+ at all. Too bad. Guess I'll be waiting a couple weeks.

We had 1 6s+ in stock earlier this morning. Sold out right away.

I got mine delivered to me at work and got it activated right away. So far I love it. Camera is awesome. Peek and pop are going to change the way I email for sure.

I'm kind of on the fence about the 6s+ though. The extra heft and size are certainly noticeable compared to my old 6. Going to give it a few days to see how I like it and go from there. Besides that I'm impressed.

 

Edit. I sound contradictory. Lol. I love it but hate it in short.

Any B41 CA in your area?  Would love to see Field Test Mode on one.

No CA that I know of around me. At work I'm on B26 so idk if I would even connect to it. To be honest I don't even know what CA would look like in the iPhone besides the higher bandwidth number and the speeds being faster.

Interested to see what my phone does for speeds when I get home. If it doubles the 45mbps I get on B41 I'll be an extremely happy man.

 

Field test doesn't fill the screen on my 6S+.

The serving cell info is most valuable one..    On the 6, the FREQ BAND INDICATOR will show what band you are on (25, 26,41).  Yours is showing 1092552756.  And with your speed, you are likely on B41 CA.  Maybe a funky number in the FREQ BAND INDICATOR indicates CA..

 

Keep your eye on that serving cell screen for us please..

 

-- EDIT - the screen I meant was "Serving Cell Info"

    • If your on an LTE device that’s correct but on a 5g device it doesn’t really matter both will be on the T-Mobile network.
    • Thanks all. SA 5G is not important to me at this point.  The aspects of a Sprint-SIM phone, including having non-keep sites as a fallback is more important to me at this point. If one gets a new SIM card with a new phone purchase (as mentioned in my original post, such as Best Buy providing on Sprint's behalf or requesting it through the My Sprint app), will it be the Sprint SIM by default? (that is, if you don't request a specific type?)  Do TNX SIM cards need to be specifically requested? (either on an existing phone or an upgrade phone that is requesting a changeover to T-Mobile)  Also, for new Sprint SIMs that are not TNX SIMs, will those need to be changed out to a New T-Mobile SIM once the Sprint network is completely decommissioned and New T-Mobile is in place?
    • I had a tech try to switch me back to TMO SIM yesterday -- well, he actually did switch temporarily...and it wouldn't activate (at my home), so he switched me back to Sprint. I'm in the 3rd week of having a non-working phone unless I'm within range of wifi that is fast enough to have wifi calling connected. I had to call the store and explain to the tech that during the screen replacement that I had 3 weeks ago, it appears that an antenna wire was not connected because wifi works fine, but cellular doesn't hardly work at all..and the way it goes is: WIfi calling connects and works. VOLTE will connect and work. LTE will pass data but no voice calls...Roaming won't connect at all. At home, in range of the Airave (B41), i show on SCP that it's on the Airave...but soon as I place a call, it goes from 4 bars, 3 bars, 2 bars, 1 bar...then 1 bar of R...then the call just drops. Same for places where VOLTE doesn't connect and it's just LTE only...has the same behavior.  It's strange that my wife has the exact same phone..and hers will work fine but mine will do the 4-3-2-1, R, then drop.  I explained to the tech in the closest store...detailed my hours-long convos with various levels of tech and online chat..and told her that i just wanted a working phone...so, over the phone, she was nice enough to just order me a replacement. I told her that I had brought the phone in to have someone take it apart and verify everything was connected..but all they did was "run tests" on it and didn't do anything to the actual internals...which doesn't solve the problem. I was forced to use my Firstnet phone for the past 3 weeks and missed a couple of job interviews because the apps I put in were a day or 2 before I had the phone screen replaced due to stuck pixels. So I'm not sure who's tried to call...but unless it's been on wifi calling...they haven't managed to get me.
    • The only thing you get with a TNX SIM is SA. Sprint-SIM phones still have TMo as the primary, with keep sites filling in just like they do on TNX, but non-keep sites are available as a fallback (high priority roaming, basically). Oh, and you get CDMA (including 1x800) as a fallback rather than H+/GSM until CDMA goes away. The benefit of a Sprint SIM will decrease over time, but for non-5G there's still a benefit. You want TNX basically for SA (if you wind up in areas where n71 can reach but B2/66 can't) and NR CA at some point where you can get n71 and n41. That's...basically it.
    • I've found a couple more recently tagged Sprint keep sites that are really close to existing T-Mobile sites. It'll be interesting to see when these get converted if they get everything or mid-band frequencies only.
