  1. As the OP I though I'd update this based on my first had experience. I removed the Cellular Watch Plan via the iPhone ->Watch->My Watch->Cellular->(i)->Remove Sprint Plan. When I checked MySprint the plan was gone. Just for grins I opened a chat to verify if in fact anything else needed to be done to remove the plan from my account and was assured the plan was gone. This is nice. Subsequently I came up with a reason to use cellular on the watch again and was able to re-add it from the same iPhone app. I was assigned a different billing number for the watch but that's not used for anything I would be interested in. So going forward I deduce it's possible to add and delete the Apple Watch cellular plan as needed and only pay for the days the plan is active it seems. This is all done without requiring Sprint's involvement. J
  2. I can cancel my Apple Watch Data Plan from my iPhone but does that remove it from my account? Do I need to call Sprint to actually have it removed from my Account. Generic Apple documents says one may need to contact the carrier but nothing Sprint specific. Thanks, J
  3. Thanks. Maybe a reason to convince spouse she needs a phone upgrade? J
  4. Hello, Is Sprint limiting which iPhone models can use VoLTE? The reason I ask is my wife's iPhone 6s at iOS 12.1.1 does not support VoLTE but my iPhone XS-Max does. The only option for her in Settings->Cellular->LTE is On/Off. Is this intentional on the part of Sprint at this time? I'm in the Chicago Market. Everything on the Apple support site says iPhone 6s does have the capability of doing VoLTE. For testing here phone I turned off WiFi on her device and the Magic Box is also Off. As soon as I initiate a call from her Phone the LTE indicator in the Status Bar goes off on my phone it stays on. In Settings->General>About->Network hers shows Sprint 35.0 Any insight appreciated. J
  5. With the recent iOS 12.1.1 my Sprint iPhone XS-Max now supports LTE Data+Voice but it uses the Macro Cell and not my MagicBox. I suspect it's because my MagicBox needs the firmware update but how do I get it updated? On the iPhone I turned off WiFi Calling and turned on LTE Data+Voice. For testing I also turned off WiFi totally on the iPhone. Settings General->About->IMS Status = Voice & SMS I have a decent WiFi signal but still feel WiFi calls are choppy and people on the other end say so also so I'd hope VoLTE would improve things. I'm in Chicago with I believe supports Sprint VoLTE. Sw Ver: Does this need to be updated? How? Any insight appreciated. J
  6. I’m in Chicagoland. Still on the old firmware. It use to hold on to a -118 B41 over a -110 B25. The next door neighbors trimmed their hedges which I believe was blocking the cell signal. I did a reset and B41 improved to -110 but after a day the MB switched to a -100 B25 and has need holding. I’m not touching it. Speeds are mediocre but consistent. Weird thing UL is 2x DL. J
  7. My MB was recently replaced due to a defective touchscreen. The previous MB had received the recent firmware update but the replacement is still on the previous version. It’s been over a week. Is Sprint still pushing updates or do I need to call support? I’m in Chicagoland. Tnx, J
  8. The MB went back to B41 which it very much prefers even though speeds are poorer. My touchscreen no longer accepts input so I’m replacing the MB with a similar model.
  9. AirUnity 544 Magic Box No longer responds to my finger. The display is on and displays the time but if I tap the screen it goes to the 3 boxes and from that point it totally ignores any finger taps. Up to this point it was working albeit poorly due to being in a poor signal area. I unplugged/reboooted twice but to no avail. Is there anything else I can try to revive the screen touchability? Else I'll call MB support. Thanks, J
  10. AU544 here and no WiFi menu after firmware update.
  11. I have a XS Max. Using a location where I got 150/15 Mbs previously I do not see much if any improvement. Not that 150/15 is anything to sneeze at.
  12. My current MB performance is very poor. Will the new one improve this? If yes I would like to swap it out if possible. It's currently on Band 25 but occasionally I'll see it on Band 41 with an RSRP of -119 and CINR or 3.0 or less. The Download/Upload speeds are about the same on 41 as on 25 fwiw. See Attached.
  13. The more I think about it with either restriction, namely only one CDMA per phone or both carriers must be the same on a locked phone, you won't be able to have two Sprint or two Verizon lines regardless of the phone's locked status. Thinking out loud will VOLTE help in this situation? eg. If/when Sprint supports VOLTE will the the CDMA rules become mute?
