    Tim YuSprint 4G Rollout UpdatesWednesday, October 2, 2018 - 9:00 PM PDT Starting right now, October 3,2018 12:01 AM EST, Samsung Galaxy S8, 8+, and S8 Active users can manually download the firmware to remove Calling Plus from their devices and bring forth the VoLTE Opt-In toggle. Oh yeah. VoLTE is live on the Sprint Network™ as part of the VoLTE Soft Launch in the select markets. The roll out to the soft launch markets will be gradual over the next weeks. So have at it you folks in the first soft launch markets that are going live! Here are the first 15 initial soft launch markets with more following in the next few weeks. Atlanta-Athens Chicago Dallas-Ft.Worth Houston Indianapolis Kansas Missouri New York City Oregon-West Washington Philadelphia Pittsburgh San Francisco Bay South Bay Southern Jersey Washington DC And if you're in a soft launch market...

    Tim YuSprint 4G Rollout UpdatesFriday, September 28, 2018 - 8:10 PM PDT In the past few day, Sprint began informing its staff and partners that the VOIP application used for LTE Calling on Sprint devices, Calling Plus, will be starting to be decommissioned beginning with software updates to Android devices on the 29th of September. Sprint updated the Calling Plus FAQ to note this upcoming change to android devices via software updates yet to be rolled out. The following is allegedly what the UI screen will resemble when the devices are updated to remove Calling Plus. Photo Credit: Sean Yes. That's right. Don't avert your eyes! The removal of Calling Plus heralds the arrival of the Opt-In VoLTE toggle. Magic Box Connections Enhanced In addition to the removal Calling Plus, existing Magic Box's have already began and will continue to receive firmware updates that will enable the support of VoLTE in the soft launch regions. This firmware update, currently /, also has additional "enhancements" that will improve uplink performance and device handoffs between Magic Box's to and from other Magic Box's or Macro / Micro cells. This is what the screen appears to be when updated. Photo Credits: Jim So with all this work going on it's all on you Galaxy S8 generation users to tell us on your experiences with the the slightly delayed VoLTE soft launch in the coming days!

    They're doing a ton of behind the scene software updates which has done a number to many markets. Ie. 4x4 deployment on the network broke B41 for my stock pixel 1g. They've disabled 4x4 after weeks of my complaining and it's working again now. Other users have had hand off or hard drop issues and the like which corresponds to known software updates to the eNBs.

    “The HP Spectre Folio running on our LTE Advanced network is a gigabit-class LTE device supporting MIMO, 256 QAM, and multiple channel carrier aggregation. In fact, this device supports five channel carrier aggregation (5CA), making it the first 5CA Band 41 Always Connected PC for our network.” That’s impressive.

    No. That's not what is happening. Whatever is affecting your service, Sprint is not purposely degrading your experience. I have noticed nothing but improvements in the parts of the network I use. To degrade service on purpose would open them up to so many issues, it wouldn't be worth it just to try and sell the merger.

    First MIMO permit application in Springfield. Based on this I would assume MIMO work is also ongoing in Kansas City and in St. Louis! https://www1.springfieldmo.gov/permitstatus/PRJDetails.aspx?no=PRJ2018-01395 Thanks to @Rickie546 for pointing it out.

    You could try going to a Retail store and ask one of the reps to pull up the “Glance” tool and see if there are any tower issues near your home.

    Omg. Exactly. We all know the issues, mistakes and missteps. It's just a service. Walk the blank away if it doesn't meet your needs.

    To say “huge news” is an understatement. Check out the FCC news release that Marcelo links to in his Tweet: Link: https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DOC-354283A1.pdf?linkId=57407697 There are two new shot clocks: • Establishes two new shot clocks for small wireless facilities (60 days for collocation on preexisting structures and 90 days for new builds); • Codifies the existing 90 and 150 day shot clocks for wireless facility deployments that do not qualify as small cells that were established in 2009; And there’s much more in that news release.... Municipalities won’t be able to delay deployments and gouge providers in the process.

    I have come to the conclusion that Sprint would have been much better off if Dish had acquired them. At least they they would have brought in midband spectrum and might have even invested in the network.

    Then sprint isnt for you. 99 percent of people don't care. Stop complaining about it and use a service that fits you needs.

    He went in with the intent of buying Sprint, Clear, and T-Mobile in one go but didn't do enough research ahead of time to realize that it wasn't going to be that easy. Dish put up a fight and made Softbank overpay for Clear and then the political climate wasn't favorable to mergers so every attempt at going for T-Mobile was shot down but he kept going for the merger instead of taking that money that would've been spent on merging the two carriers and investing it in Sprint. To him it was easier to consolidate than to compete.

    VoLTE support, better uplink, better stability and reliability, and wifi. WiFi is disabled and can't be user enabled, but the menu for it is there. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
