    I know. It's hard to swallow that it favors Band 41 when I only have Bands 25 & 26.

    You and me both. I hope it works better in low signal areas than my X does. And I don't live in a B41 area.

    Talk about a massive disadvantage.

    I owe $637.49. I'm still mulling it over. I know that it'll lower my Sprint bill for the next 18 months, but it'll raise my credit card balance in the near term, so it's a catch 22.

    I'm still debating what I'm going to do. I want a new phone, but since I bought my 256GB X at Best Buy on a 24 month Installment Billing plan and am only paying $899.99, I will probably wait.

    I would hope so. Thanks for that.

    Pricing for new lines and UPGRADES! https://old.reddit.com/r/Sprint/comments/9fjznx/iphone_prices_and_promos_coming_up/

    Acutally, if you want to use AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile for your 2nd line, I would assume you could. However, if you buy your phone from Sprint, I don't know how the SIM slot lock policy works for the XS.

    No word yet. I'm not sure if anyone has tweeted the question to Sprint yet or not either. But when they do, my friend would love to upgrade to the XR for that very feature. I think it would be awesome for that. One phone for business and personal would sure be more convenient. Yes, a Sprint SIM would still come in Sprint models. They are all dual-SIM, so one physical SIM card and one eSIM. If you can use a Sprint SIM for one line and use the eSIM on AT&T or Verizon, it would be great, especially since you can use the eSIM on another carrier when you travel the world.

    Oops! I guess I wasn't paying attention. Thanks!

    Well, I can't order through the iPhone Upgrade Program because Apple requires that I use a physical address thanks to UPS, but my Sprint billing address is a PO Box, and because I owe for my iPhone X, I can't even choose the priority options in the My Sprint app unless I buy for full price. Do you know the pricing for upgrades for existing customers?

    iPhone XR Thread

    iPhone XR is Apple's mid-size, lower priced iPhone for 2018, announced September 12, 2018. When it launches October 26, it'll come in 6 colors, all available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB configurations. Included are most of the features found in the XS models, like the A12 Bionic Processor, FaceID in the 7MP True Depth front camera, wireless charging, and Dual SIM technology, 1 physical SIM and 1 eSIM(currently not supported by Sprint). Notable differences are the 6.1" Liquid Retina LCD display, single 12MP wide-angle lens, IP67 water-resistance instead of IP68, and only LTE-Advanced LTE, not Gigabit-class LTE. However, it does include LTE band 71, so it's compatible with T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum.

    For convenience we could put it here, but I think I agree with you. I'll start a separate thread for it.

    Ok. So, based on today's announcement, should the iPhone XR be part of this thread or should it be in it's own thread?

    I'll just leave this here, and the answer is yes, HPUE. https://old.reddit.com/r/Sprint/comments/9fborl/iphone_xs_and_xs_max_both_support_band_41_hpue/
