So I went to my parents' new house yesterday and they had the Magic Box sitting in the kitchen window.  It was working and had excellent reception of B25 from Mont Alto, PA, mostly because their B25 in the house was excellent as well.  Their problem was with the sound quality of the voice service, which of course, the Magic Box won't help.

Now they have Comcast for a landline phone and Internet, and the Magic Box wasn't going to do anything for them anyway, so I took the Magic Box with me.  Part of me is tempted to try it here, but part of me thinks I should just return it.  Thoughts?

The CDMA module for the magic box is supposed to be deployed soon. It plugs into the Ethernet port on the magic box and broadcasts 1x (and maybe evdo?). So that's an option for them.

Or they could get the Airave 4 which just launched. I think the CDMA parts are identical.

When is the Magic Box supposed to get updated to support VOLTE?

I seem to remember it getting delayed due to another issue (maybe related) that caused them to disable ‘hand-ups’ from the macro network?  

 

Oddly enough, while arriving at home this evening, my phone connected to the MB fairly quickly.  Normally takes an airplane mode cycling. 🤷‍♂️  I’ll have to go see if software was updated recently.

Yeah it's definitely a WIP. 

I am able to connect but It's chugging real bad. I can't connect to any speedtest server, resolving domain names takes like me back to Pre-NV memories, and VolTE / Calling Plus calls just outright fail. Sometimes its so bad my Pixel gets stuck in 1x purgatory as it refuses to connect to LTE at all.
