  1. My home Sprint site is a keep site! I’m on ROAMAHOME, been over a month since I’ve connected to it. I’m so relieved, it’s going to fill in a gap nicely. https://imgur.com/gallery/1uOQRhe
  2. I DM”d him on the 16th, no reply yet. Guessing he’s just too busy lately.
  3. Yep, for about a week so far. I sent Robert a DM.
  4. Ugh. All 6 of my lines are still connected to Sprint service thank God, hopefully they'll keep it as is for me until the very end. I'm on Sprint for a reason, if I wanted to be on T-Mobile I would have switched long ago. I loathe AT&T (not because of their service or coverage, but in general) and never considered Verizon. But I guess whatever will be, will be. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk EDIT: Wow, I spoke too soon. This morning some kind of update was pushed to all of my lines, I cannot connect to to Sprint LTE anymore, only T-Mobile. When it was pushed SignalCheck stated the
  5. I have to opt in every two days. Cal Screener is a hot mess. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. T-Mo has been adding the N41 panels to their sites in Phoenix the past couple of weeks. I would imagine they will be either stealing a couple of the Sprint carriers or killing my MB relay channel soon. I think they have enough bandwidth here to keep it all running for now though. We will see, I'm on Sprint and I'm connected to B41 90% of the time outdoors. To lose that would suck to say the least. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. Yep, Sprint postpaid. I even drove out of the area to see if it would work elsewhere, but nothing. I've connected to T-Mobile roaming before, and it's always B66 or B12 on my S10 Plus according to SignalCheck. I'll keep an eye on my iPhone XR as well for roaming, as I usually carry both phones with me and they generally roam in the same places (although Field Test mode is a PITA). Maybe something happened because of last weeks update? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. Downloaded the app, tried bands 2, 4, 12, 66 and 71. Showed no service on all bands. Band 71 tried to connect, but ultimately failed. Thanks for the idea though! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah, I do facilities maintenance so when stuff doesn't work I go into panic mode. Because everything has to work, right? I guess I'll just live with the MB quirks for now and wait until T-Mobile parks me on their network before I pack it up and send it back. B66 LTE is very strong in my house (T-Mobile tower is a bit closer than the Sprint one) and has great speeds. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. UPDATE: Rebooted once more this morning before I went to work, still not connected to LTE backhaul when I returned home. Rebooted once more, and it reconnected about 15 minutes in. I guess it was just stuck on stupid for a day or two. It’s broadcasting the same EARFCN as before 39874, 2518.4MHz. It’s connecting to the same frequency it always does also, 2640.4 MHz. Phoenix market. I didn’t note the broadcast EARFCN when I connected to WiFi momentarily, but I’m afraid to connect to that again for fear of losing LTE because it works now. It’s become increasingly finicky the past couple
  11. I have the MB to strengthen signal in my house (where congested and barely usable B26 normally is all I get on any of my four phones without it), mainly in the event of an ISP outage (which unfortunately happens quite frequently, thanks Cox). The MB picked up B41 indoors through a south facing window with good signal, and was extremely reliable and useful...so basically, lack of LTE backhaul renders it useless for my needs. I totally understand why they killed it though, repurposing that 20 MHz block for everyone as opposed to just me and maybe two or three other people in a suburban single f
  12. Well, looks like they finally killed LTE backhaul in my area yesterday. MB connects to Wi-Fi backhaul, but refuses to connect to B41. Rebooted three times, factory reset once. No dice. Looks like I'm packing it up and sending it back, no way in hell im using Wi-Fi backhaul. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. Just added a line with the S10 Plus $0 monthly lease, $20 a month for my fourth line. My first Android phone in eight years. Couldn’t resist. I ditched the Sprint Complete on my three other current iPhone lines, that was costing me $45 per month. Also ditched my $15 iPad cellular line which I rarely used. Now I have four lines, a new phone, and still cheaper than I was paying prior. I can finally tool around with SignalCheck and CellMapper and satisfy my inner nerd.

  14. 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
  15. 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
