It should be.  The A1661 model (the Sprint variant) has the same specs.  All that should be needed is to switch the SIM card. 

Will HD calling be supported in the A1660 ?

Not sure.  I think Anthony would be better to answer this.

I don't see why the other model wouldn't support HD calling. It's not a hardware issue, so would only come down to how the carrier provisions the device.

Everything is supported between later V and S iPhone models.(WiFi calling, CA, HD Voice, etc.) Nice thing about iPhones.

HD voice is more of a software thing, it's pushed to the device through carrier updates once your device connects to the network. If the device works on the Sprint network, it'll have HD voice.

Is there an indicator in iOS 11 somewhere that would tell me when a call is connected with HAD Voice?

Android phones have a little HD icon on the call screen. Is there something like that for iOS 11?

There is not in iOS 11, no.

Is there an iPhone X User thread? I got mine on launch day lol. I have a question in relation to the engineering screen. It no longer shows the band that you're on. Not sure if it's an iOS thing or just an iPhone X thing.

My iPX definitely still shows the band. You looking at Field Test?

Okay now it's showing the band. When I was at work. I did a speed test and I got 40mbps down & 5 up so I wanted to see if it was B41. When I went on the field test screen gave like 8 digits starting with 24, so I was confused.

That happens from time to time on all Qualcomm iPhones since the iPhone 6S. Just restart Field Test.

Yes, the iPhone model for Verizon is the same model that Sprint uses.  All that is needed is switching the SIM card.

The iPhone X has great battery life. This is pretty much everyday. 384c0370448f19c3e581b7b30fd3a7cb.jpg

Update: I just reached 1%. My total usage for today was 12hrs & 15 mins with 13hrs & 50 mins of standby. By Apple standards that’s amazing! I don’t think I’ve ever gotten more than 8hrs out of an iPhone. My 7 plus definitely didn’t pass 8 to often.

I've been getting 10+ hours of usage with 15-17+ hours of standby, and only getting into the teens of battery percentage remaining. This phone has the best battery life of any phone I've ever had.

My 7 plus screen was broken so I went back to using my older Nexus 6p in the meantime.  Wow! I was roaming on T-Mobile B2 and B4 most of the time.  I could actually use my phone at the supermarket.  I even was using T-Mobile B4 at my house which normally has a weak Sprint B26.

So I fixed the screen on my iPhone 7 plus and now I can't roam on T-Mobile.  Went to the same supermarket this morning and the phone was as useless as it was before.  On the phone now with Sprint but it doesn't appear that are able to help me.

You need to wait until iOS 12.1

Why?  Did I miss something?  What is happening on 12.1?

    • I can confirm that 15MHz PCS is live across all of northern Brooklyn at the very least. I went to Red Hook, Williamsburg, Park Slope, Sunset Park, and everywhere in between today and encountered 15MHz PCS everywhere.
    • So they have pdfs of their coverage, but the map still isn't updated.  They added a few more cities. They are now at 179 million people.  Expanded DSS.  https://www.att.com/5g/coverage-map/ https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/at-t-expands-5g-to-28-new-markets-continues-dss-deployment  
    • Wonder how they will move on their network.  If they deployed it like TMobile is deloying 600MHz, I'd put a line on them. 
    • I'm surprised TMobile is so inconsistent with bands deployed per site. Some sites have full on builds some are two or three bands and others host single bands. While Sprint might have been weak off the beaten path, they consistently deployed full builds on almost all macro sites in NYC.
    • A full deployment has never been T-Mobile's strategy, and that's why they've never been the best in Seattle. Despite having the best site density (by a lot), their network experience falls far short of AT&T, Sprint and even Verizon now, who I would have claimed was in last place a year ago.  The trend for the last 4 years has been that AT&T and Verizon never climb a tower without deploying every LTE technology available at that time. Even today, the same cannot be said for T-Mobile.  I would estimate that more than 35% of T-Mobile sites in Seattle are still midband only. And some are still B2-only whereas others are B4-only. That makes coverage/capacity inconsistent between sites and handovers at the edge of cell sloppy, to say the least. To really compete with the big two, they're going to have to rethink the way they're deploying their RAN and stop deploying the minimum needed to get by. Hopefully we see those changes going forward, because they definitely have the economies of scale necessary to do so now.
