    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

    Yes the replacement works well.

    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

    [PSA] Sprint announces GEN3 (4th iteration) Magic Box

    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.

    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

    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.

    [PSA] Sprint announces GEN3 (4th iteration) Magic Box

    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.

    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?

    If phone is locked both sims need to be on the same carrier. This seems to preclude two Sprint or two Verizon lines on the same phone.

    Only one SIM can be CDMA so currently if you are on Sprint with the first SIM the second SIM can't be Verizon it seems. See the "What you need" paragraph here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT209044

    Sprint to Begin VoLTE Soft Launch in September

    Will Magic Boxes support VoLTE on Day 1 if they are in the VoLTE rollout area or will that be a separate thing?

    Amazing how my MB will use ANY B41 signal over a B25. I’m in a very marginal B41 area CINR as low as -120 perhaps lower. Once it latched on to a -100 B25 signal but only for a short time when it switched back to the much poorer B41 signal. I got my MB in January and noticed the B41 signal getting progressively worse beginning in March. My guess is the foliage is blocking the signal. Hopefully it can still find a useable signal when the trees are full.

    Does the MB retain it's optimization across power outages (planned or unplanned). If yes, are the settings stored in non-volatile memory or is there a battery backed storage with a time limit before the settings are lost?
