  1. Just got a text from Sprint. Seems like they want to cut off LTE backhaul soon. Sprint: A quick & easy update. Reconnect your Sprint Magic Box to your home internet for a better network. http://s.sprint.com/tz9Evsv FreeMsg. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Thinking about taking a baseball bat to mine. No thoroughput starting yesterday, even though it was connected to B41 backhaul and broadcasting B41 LTE. Rebooted twice, been stuck on stupid for 6 hours and won’t finish booting. EDIT: Reset to factory default, working now RE-EDIT: Aaaaaand it’s down again. They must be tweaking the network around here, Phoenix metro Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. My first Sprint phone was the Evo 4G, in LA/North OC it actually wasn’t bad. I was even able to pick up WiMAX in my house! How many can say that? I used Clearwire WiMAX home internet from 2011 until they shut down service, installed a yagi antenna on my roof pointed towards the tower. Still have the old Clear modem in a box in my garage, along with my Netgear Zing I used after the WiMAX shutdown (before finally getting cable internet). BTW that tower STILL has the old dual mode WiMAX/B41 LTE panels installed by Clear to this day. Honestly I can’t say that I’ve ever been completely satisfied with Sprint service, and there were times where I cursed them in my head (in the big box store, in my head, “f***in Sprint”) but what I can say is that I never desired to be a T-Mobile or Verizon customer. So I guess Sprint wasn’t that bad after all. Farewell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Thanks for the info, I’ve been on AT&T for 3 years and just switched back to Sprint. Service has improved in Phoenix from 3 years ago, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I’ve got 10x10 B25 aggregating with 5x5 B25 as well. Looks like Phoenix is live with multiple configurations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. I’ll bet they’re testing, because I’m puzzled as to why I would have B41 as secondary and B26 as primary if they weren’t testing. Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Maybe because B26 upload was stronger? Pardon me for my lack of knowledge... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Im guessing most likely an iPhone field test bug, but here goes. iPhone XR, shows primary B26 and secondary B41. Phoenix metro (not sure which vendor this market is). Seems like even if it were possible speeds are too high. About 1000 yards from a Sprint Store that probably had a magic box and about 1/2 mile from the macro. Wish I had an Android for stuff like this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. My 2nd gen updated today and enabled WiFi backhaul. Not going to use it, since it has a good B41 connection. Made three calls, VoLTE has not connected yet. SW Ver. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Finally got a Magic Box, they sent me a refurbed 2. I get 3CA B41 in front of my house in the street pulling 176 Mbps but moderate to weak B25 or B26 in my house pulling 1.5 to 7.5 Mbps tops. The box connected to B41 right away and now I’m pulling 45 to 60 Mbps inside. Fun stuff for a nerd, but my wife thinks it’s weird that I’m so excited. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro EDIT: One thing I’ve noticed, the serving cell info screen in Field Test Mode on my XR never changes after connecting to my Magic Box, no matter where I am, without a reboot. It’s stuck on stupid.
  10. Same thing happens to me on my XR in the Phoenix metro, random places. Reboot phone is the only thing that works. Happens to my wife’s XR too. Started happening about a month ago, even before the new 13.2 update and 39.0 carrier bundle. Happens about two or theee times a week. Hard to say if it’s a network issue or phone issue, I contacted a Sprint network tech that helped me in the past and he told me they got rid of his department a couple of years ago. I’m at a loss.

  11. I had an issue yesterday on my iPhone XR. I’m in a Walgreens in an area that is in between cell sites, usually Band 26 outdoors. I usually drop to EVDO or even 1x in the store, but found my phone roaming on what I believe to be AT&T LTE (MCC-MNC 310-410). Left the store and drove 10 miles to a laser tag venue, Sprint cell site across the street in plain view. My son’s iPhone XR was pulling 175 Mbps on band 41, my phone was still stuck on AT&T roaming until I reset with airplane mode. I’m guessing my phone was stuck on stupid? Another issue, my phone was also stuck on 1x driving home from work the other day for at least 10 miles before I reset with airplane mode. I’ve had the phone for 2 months, just rejoined Sprint after 3 years with AT&T. Strange. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Nice work! There are a few Mobilitie sites in the LA portion of Harbor Gateway as well, I can’t verify them because I don’t live in LA anymore and I only have an iPad on Sprint. I remember one on Carson one block west of Normandie... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. I was finally able to log in, so far so good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Tapatalk logged me out when upgrading and now it won’t let me log in using the forum username and password. Tried deleting and reinstalling, nothing works. I’ve never had a problem until now.
  15. I’m using Tapatalk Pro, latest update, and had no problems on iPhone 7 Plus on AT&T or WiFi. Also, Tapatalk Pro on Sprint iPad Air no problems. Sent from my iPhone 7 Plus using Tapatalk Pro
