    iPhone XS Thread

    iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations. Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

    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.

    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/

    iPhone XS Thread

    (Original first post info) As was seen on Thursday in the 9to5Mac bombshell leak of iPhone XS, and rumored for months before, we know that September 12th's launch of the 2018 iPhone flagship model will come in 5.8" and 6.5" OLED screens. We also learned that gold will be included in the color choices. And also thanks to 9to5Mac, we now have a picture of the new phones. The only information we still don't have are details of the 6.1" with LCD and internal hardware specs. Those details may leak out over the next 10 days (hopefully not, as most of the surprise and fun of launch events is gone). But for now, for those excited about a gold XS, you can drool over this photo for the next 10 days.
  21. Still on Framily instead of the Sprint Talk, Text, & Data plan until the 22nd. I can still change services online until I am switched over. I added Unlimited back even though I have an Unlimited Tablet plan.

    iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    I have no idea. I would think it would be worth it.

    iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    Like both of you, I noticed that with my X over my 7+ as well. I got a mobile hotspot to cover that issue, and now I use my iPad 6th Gen since I use it for business and carry it everywhere, and most of my dead spots are fully covered again. Hopefully the next iPhone X has much stronger radios than the first one.

    Well, I finally bought AirPods tonight. I’m so happy I bought them.
