iPhone 6S/6S Plus User Thread


Recommended Posts

So that would explain why my phone has been holding onto LTE for dear life lately, even if faster 3G is available. I assume the constant switching wasn't good for the phone's battery life, but I'm not the biggest fan of having to do it manually now.

Adjusted handoff parameters are necessary for any sort of VoLTE implementation, which Sprint aims to deploy in the near future.

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.

Formal note of my exit of this thread and joining the X thread.

 

On Xmas day my 6S died a sudden death while sitting by the Xmas tree and taking photos!

 

The local repair centre took all of 5 minutes to assess and then sent that assessment to Apple. I got a $445 written quote for a replacement (not much details) which I rejected.

 

One month out of extended warranty and this happens...thanks Apple.

 

Upside...the X.

 

P.S. Happy New Year, everyone!

Hmm, where was the quote from? I know direct from Apple, a dead iPhone 6S replacement out-of-warranty is only $299 + tax.

The authorised distributor in South Africa...

They masquerade themselves as iStore but aren’t the real thing.

I would have happily paid $299...

You will enjoy the X.  One thing I would suggest, get a fully enclosed case.  The screen is very easy to scratch.  Just received this case yesterday:

Really? My experience hasn't matched this. YMMV, of course, but I work in a dealership quick service (a place I consider to be a likely place for this to happen) and haven't had any issues with mine related to scratches. All I use is the Apple leather case. Had my X since the week after I came out.

I do have a couple of scratches on the screen.  One is more prominent.  The Lifeproof case is very nice though.

I ended up getting a Griffin Survivor Core case and a Body Glove screen protector. With iCare. And household insurance, just in case. :P

In a *very* pleasing turn of events, my “old” 6s 64GB was repaired today for $100. It turns out that the power management IC was at fault. Further investigation seems to suggest this is a $12 - $15 part but a lot of skill is required so I’m happy with the price. This also included a new battery.

 

I’ve been using my 6s today and can’t stop smiling.

    • 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).
