  1. Speculation is that it's some Qualcomm limitation or something, but yeah it's odd. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Yes. The McLaren version I believe. Interesting that it disables B13 and B14. https://fccid.io/2ABZ2-EE143 Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  3. This recently appeared on the FCC site. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  4. I've noticed it too. It seems to be more picky about a GPS signal now. For example, if I'm driving and my phone is in my lap, it won't record as many points as it does when it's sitting upright in my cup holder. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  5. VoLTE doesn't work if it's not using LTE backhaul? That would be really surprising if true. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah it should be able to go faster, but honestly does it really matter? On macros and SCs, the added speed is more about the capacity to handle more users. But on a MB where you'll likely only have a couple users (or at least only a couple simultaneous users), I don't know why faster would make a difference on a phone. I doubt anyone would notice 80 vs 140 Mbps outside of speed tests. Now that I think about it, I wonder if something internally is limited to 100 Mbps. If it was, that, combined with the ipsec VPN overhead, might explain the ~80-85 Mbps max speed. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  7. Oops, typo on my part. I meant as postpaid. I have that prepaid plan now. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  8. This is the setup that I use. Slow DSL as backup to AT&T LTE (DSL is also used for DNS and wifi calling). Nighthawk as the router. How do you get the iPad plan as prepaid? Is there any different other than being prepaid and the price? Contract? Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  9. No, the radio is only capable of B41. It can be resolved though if they quit using it he Magic Box config for the Airave 4. Right now, the 4 uses the same earfcn as a Magic Box, and uses the same availability restrictions as a result. And in some markets, Sprint doesn't have enough spectrum for 4 or 5 B41 carriers (macro + SC + MB). But they always seem to have enough for at least 1 B41 carrier. The Airave 3 used the same earfcn as the first B41 carrier on macros, which allowed it to be used pretty much anywhere. If Sprint setup a separate Airave 4 config like they did with the 3, this wouldn't be an issue. They could also edit the current Airave/MB config to just use the macro earfcn when non-LTE backhaul is used, but I'm not sure if the config actually allows that type of setup.

    Sorry, I edited the post and left in the 1x (meaning single carrier) by mistake. It can't do B26+41 at all. CA combos: 2xCA: 25-25, 25-26, 25-41, 41-41 3xCA: 25-25-25, 25-25-26, 25-41-41, 41x3 And 4x and 5x CA B41. 2xCA upload on B41. Like the Pixel 3, it's also limited to 10 MIMO streams. So you can do 4x4 on 2 B41 carriers, but only 2x2 on the last one. Likewise, with 5xCA B41, it can only do 2x2 per carrier. No 4x4 at all. No idea when Sprint will push the update to enable FDD-TDD. Sprint Speed [emoji769]. Could be next week, could be 6-12+ months. Magic Boxes and Airaves for example have been capable of VoLTE for 11+ months, just waiting for Sprint to whitelist them. Things can be ready and working but just sit for a year for seemingly no reason... Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk

    No. The menu is exactly the same on the 4. You can enable and disable individual bands, but not carrier aggregation combinations. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk

    It's not enabled on phones. He had to force enable it on his phone. Can't do that on Pixels. So we have to wait for Sprint to push the network config update to devices to tell them they can use it. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk

    Apparently the Pixel 4 is capable of B25 + 2xCA B41 (3xCA total), no B26 + 1x B41, and 2xCA upload B41. So whenever Sprint enables it, it should work. (Edited with correct CA combos)

    Speed test when Sprint enables it, or with NSG once Sprint enables it. Or possibly FCC docs, but I don't know if they publish that. Lilotimz would know. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk

    It's the same SoC and modem, so yes it's capable, unless Google did something with the RF front end to disable it. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
