iPhone 6S/6S Plus User Thread


Recommended Posts

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"

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.

Run a speedtest or several and then swap to field test. Carrier Aggregation only kicks in after a data session is initialized and it takes a few seconds.

Note his download frequency changed from the first screen to second - he's definitely in an area with second B41 carrier active.

Doesn't matter. Either B41 carriers can be the PCC. The only method I know of for iPhones is if the UARFCN is different from the stated "Downlink / Uplink Frequencies" in field test.

Omg, Sprint literally just added a second band 41 carrier to my home tower 10 minutes ago. Just saw it pop up while sitting here on the couch. Happy carrier aggregation iPhone 6s day!

Peek and Pop is great. I get somewhere close to 200 emails a day between work and my primary gmail address. This is going to make shooting through my inbox a breeze!

I remember when iPhone users were being made fun of for missing out on CA with the iPhone 6. Looks like it's a just in time flip switch for us!

 

Hopefully we'll get 3xCA at this time next year. :)

We're actually not that late to the party this time. I don't care when the first phones with CA came out, I look at when CA was first reported in the wild. It wasn't that long ago--maybe a few months?

I wish I didn't have to be told you must chat with us to complete your activation and of course its taking forever

I'm in that process, with a chat window that says "We apologize for the delay. Thanks for your patience. " over 30 times.

Just got off of chat to get my phone activated... Rep told me there are some server provisioning problems, whatever that means. She said to wait 1-2 hours then try again. Grrrr sprint.....

How is the RF performance comparing to the old iPhone 6?  I have the 6S Plus 128GB sitting in front of me, debating to return the phone and going to the $1 lease.  This all depends on the RF performance differences.

It sucks how customers on retired plans can't use Sprint.com/activate for new purchases and swaps. You have to call or chat. Not sure why they would do this.

iPhone users break the Internet twice a year. You think they'd prepare for this.

As a shareholder, hopefully they did!

Is there a direct way to chat with them? it doesn't give me the option to do so at the moment?

 

I can't use the Sprint website at all. Just getting this page no matter what I click.

I got my phone an hour or so ago. Had to wait for the system to pick up because it was running slow. I was the only one there for an iPhone today.

    • A ton of them are from Extenet which afaik is Verizon's primary small cell partner here. I also see a bunch for Mobilitie which was Sprint's primary partner and Crown Castle which is T-Mobile's primary partner. I wonder if T-Mobile plans on contracting both for small cells going forward. If so, that's a lot of combined potential small cells, though still less than Extenet. By far the least are New Cingular which is likely AT&T. The wildcard is Transit Wireless who seems to be branching out of the subway system and is deploying quite a few new sites.
    • NYC DOITT database was updated about a month ago. Imported all the new oDAS node locations into my map. Haven't yet spotted anything with the new design in my travels through Williamsburg & Bushwick. Almost 1400 newly proposed nodes (since 3/5/21) is pretty incredible, though. Made my way up to Harlem and City College this past week. The site (eNB 55893) covering the north side of the campus STILL hasn't been upgraded from B2/B66 (dual APX16s). Pulled ~70Mb/s down on what is essentially an empty campus. Wish I knew what the deal is with that site. I almost wonder if it might be easier to work with the school and keep the Sprint site on top of the engineering building (Steinman Hall, across the street from their current site), instead.
    • Just saw this permit for a very rural area:  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/21110744CBP/Snohomish County It sure looks like a T-Mobile site number (SE01794A) and mentions "ADD 2 ABIL FOR N1900 N2100" First time I have seen a permit mention n1900 or n2100 (would this be n2/n25 and n66?). In fact, I searched all of the major locals on that site and not a single other permit mentions n1900 or n2100 (and none mention n2 or n66).
