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

Yes everything is supported BUT some of the services need to be "Whitelisted" at the carrier. WiFi calling normally needs to be whitelisted at the carrier level.

Great news!   3xCA on Band 41 is now supported on iOS 10.2.1 via Carrier Update 27.2

The vibration "makes it feel better than a real one."   That's what she said.   AJ

Just an update:   I checked our Sprint account today and noticed that we have been given a $2047.48 credit to our account. We got a 128 GB 7 and two 128 GB 7 Plus's, and paid $100 down for each of t

You need to wait until iOS 12.1

Downloaded iOS 12.1 earlier today. Just came back from the supermarket. Just Sprint 1x and 3g. Still no T-Mobile roaming. Very sad.

That is the first step. More steps from Sprint now.

That is disappointing. I hope T-Mobile roaming will come to this phone soon.  Not interested in buying a new phone yet. The 7plus is holding up extremely well for a 2 year old phone. Very solid.

This is purely a guess but now that we know that the VoLTE trigger for the launch devices in the launch markets is in 12.1.1. (Currently Developer Beta 1) with a Carrier Bundle of 34.5.5 they might be using the T-mobile native roaming as a full in for VoLTE and it will be in that same bundle firmware update.

I can’t test this as I let my developer account lapse. I am hoping that the 12.1.1 is opened to beta testers today!

Got 12.1.1 on my iPhone 7 Plus. Still no T-Mobile roaming. I guess my expectations should be lowered. 

VoLTE not working either but that is not a big concern. I am in a launch market.

iPhone 7 works great on T-Mo native roaming - it's hard to know sometimes because it will often just say Sprint. This has been in effect since at least iOS 12.1. 

VoLTE does not work on iPhone 7 and below.

You are right!  Was at the supermarket last night and I was on Band 4. I could finally use iMessage and Chase pay. Definitely will be keeping my 7 plus a bit longer now.

Can confirm that my iPhone 7+ is not only roams on T-mobile, but I do believe this week at least in the San Diego market, T-mobile has lifted the 5 Mbps data throttle. The grocery store I normally go to would typically go to 3G once entering the store and now I received about 4 bars of service with download speeds of 48 Mbps, upload speeds of 10 Mbps, & a ping time of 43ms. I did a field test and saw I was on Band 4.

    • 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).
