    I might! 🤩 Hope this helps. Under the My Sprint > Click Permissions > Once you are there click my account tab, which should take you to the old layout > Look under "your bill" you see "Recent payments" > click see details > on the right side of the page look under "I want to..." and click "see my order history", it should be a DM14 order ID and you should be able to use sprint.com/myorder to see what the orders are. It will only show once someone processed the order into the system though. Let me know if you can't access it still.

    I wish you were able to order one online, but you have to call their Airave or Magic Box support

    I'm just waiting and watching to see what happens before I make any further comments. The only comment I have it this time is that this is interesting. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    You can't disable 3G/evdo and keep 1x. They use the same IPsec connection. The Airave 3 has 2 IPsec tunnels, one for CDMA and one for LTE. CDMA establishes a tunnel to one of 10 domains: segw01.femto.sprint.net through segw10.femto.sprint.net. I don't remember if it picks one at random or if it tends to stick to the same one. The LTE side does not do a DNS lookup, and uses the hardcoded IP So setup a firewall rule to block access from the Airave IP to Then power cycle the Airave. The LTE side will be unable to connect, leaving you with CDMA only. As a side note, the subnet is used at Sprint for LTE femto cells and wifi calling (at least devices on the new core, so anything that does VoLTE or Calling+). There seem to be different IPs for different devices. Ethernet backhauled Magic Boxes use My Pixel always uses one that ends in a 7 (,,,, They are returned by the DNS records epdg.epc.mnc530.mcc312.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc120.mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org, which return one of them randomly. The Essential phone on the other hand uses

    DOJ seem to be undecided, but even if they approve it is looking like ny and California AGs are on board to sue if doj gives approval. With a few more states on board they would fully have the resources to fight this merger without the backing of the fcc or DOJ!! Hang tight this could get ugly fast Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gotcha! Thanks for the heads up and do post many pics and first impression when you get it!

    The roaming agreement with T-Mobile includes LTE data only, not VoLTE. Handover of a Calling Plus call is possible and has been documented, I believe. That being said, latency is often problematic as roaming traffic is always routed back through Sprint's network. VoLTE calls are trickier. They can be handed off to a similar-to-Calling-Plus data session on T-Mobile LTE, although they would face the same latency issue. I'm not sure if this has been documented yet. A side note: my iPhone 8 often drops to CDMA for a few seconds before kicking over to T-Mobile LTE, making a smooth handoff impossible, although I've witnessed iPhone X and newer devices transitioning directly from weak Sprint LTE to T-Mobile LTE. A handoff may be possible in these cases.

    I seem to be the only one so far that got it shipped. I was told yesterday that with the ordering system being down that if you submitted a request it you'll get one, might take an extra day or two since someone has to input this order into the system. I would just watch the link that Mike provided (sometimes doesn't work so you'll need to do my process)

    My guess is tomorrow then. Mine shipped and they did send two which will be here Friday!

    Got it. It's not in my account though under devices.

    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.

    No notification, I had to go through the old layout they still got running to find it which shows you all the orders you have placed over the years. Funny thing is it looks like they ordered me two of them somehow. 😂

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

    Yes! Very well surprisingly, but being able to pull traffic away from the B25 2xCA nearly all around makes the experience amazing!

    Great news on additional towers Robert. I have been mapping the new one these last few days on my commute and see band 26 as well. It carries ok on Mast road. LTE kind of fades out by the Ford dealer but I now have LTE for the most part from Manchester to about 7 minutes from home.

    details about the plan for 5g, lg v50 pre orders and the cities you guys are talking about them launching https://venturebeat.com/2019/05/16/sprint-will-launch-5g-on-may-31-in-4-cities-with-lg-v50-and-htc-5g-hub/

    My parents have the same issue. The MB used to stick to B25 and work fantastic. Then at some point they started really making it prefer B41, so it latches onto a -127 B41 signal and will not let go. It actually gets 0 throughput on it. I talked to the MB engineering team, and they said that while they can technically lock it to B25, that it won't persist past a reboot and they'd have to do it again. So they wouldn't even do it once. The only solution I've found is to factory reset, and basically put your body over the MB to attenuate the signal while it does the initial connection, so it can't even see B41. Once it's connected, you can move it to the correct position and it will stay on B25 for anywhere from a few days to several weeks, before the process needs to be repeated. For home internet via LTE, if you can get an AT&T signal and are open to buying some equipment (modem, possibly a router, and antennas), there is a solution that works and might be faster.

    My phone is showing native coverage while connecting to a T-Mobile tower. I just did a software update on my Essential PH-1 this morning. Right after completing the update, it shows native full signal on T-Mobile AWS.

    I shall! I just noticed that they haven't added the Airave as a line under my account yet which they normally do before the device gets sent out. Unless they are doing something different this time around. Hope it doesn't cause issues when I set this thing up.

    It will happen eventually, but probably not for at least a few more years. They'll keep 1x800 around for CDMA voice, and they have put a single 1x1900 carrier in the LTE internal guard band plus some overlap (Airave 3s, at least in some markets, have been doing this since launch). It's unclear if this was intentional, and if so, under what conditions it works. The real holdup is if/when they want to drop EVDO. In some markets, they've shut down the 2nd EVDO carrier to enable 4x4 on B25, so there are many areas that only have a single EVDO carrier now. I suspect they won't shut it down completely though until LTE coverage is solid, since too many devices now drop to CDMA in dead zones and then take forever (30+ min) to switch back to LTE. Data would then be unusable without EVDO, and most people wouldn't know to airplane toggle to get LTE back. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    So what does this mean for devices that aren't VoLTE supported yet? iPhone 7 and older for example?
