    "When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and you're life is just to live your life inside the world.

    Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money.

    That's a very limited life.

    Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.

    Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again."

    iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    I have been seeing $699-$749 for the 6.1'' LCD iPhone, $899 for the 2018 iPhone X, and $999 for the 2018 iPhone X Plus. All rumors/speculation of course. -Anthony
  3. Yup, that download to upload ratio is definitely T-Mobile. -Anthony

    Welcome to the club! I've had mine for a year now and still use them every day! Even bought my Mother a pair for Mother's day because she loved mine so much. -Anthony

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Just to chime in, I find the Magic Box very useful in my home because we have home internet that goes out at least once a week, and therefore need a backup plan for those times when the internet is out. It gives me reliable internet access when the home ISP goes down. Plus, when connected to a UPS, I also have usable internet for news and emergency updates in the event of a power outage, which happens often during storms. I go from being on 1 bar of B26 to 4 bars of B41, with the box being connected to a B41 site that I otherwise don't have access to in or around my home. Also a small benefit is having full signal all the time without my device constantly switching between weak B26 and 3G. The battery life savings really add up. Plus being able to make VoLTE phone calls from my home when VoLTE is rolled out will be nice too. All of these are things that WiFi cannot do. Sure, a lot of these problems have solutions or workarounds, all of which require more time, effort and, more importantly, money, than a box that you simply connect to power and never touch again. It almost works like... magic? -Anthony

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Basically. The CDMA model uses a Qualcomm modem whereas the GSM model uses an Intel modem, therefore no CDMA support. -Anthony

    You get about four hours of listening time before the ear phones need to be recharged. Then, the battery case they come with can provide them with up to 24 hours of additional listening time. 15 minutes of the ear phones in the charging case gets about two hours of listening time. I use my AirPods daily and typically only have to charge the case once every week or so. -Anthony

    We should probably make an iOS 12 thread, but since this is related to iPhone X, I’m happy to report that, at least in beta 1, Field Test appears to finally be updated for the iPhone X. http://imgur.com/JMvEmDH http://imgur.com/5AWjiJQ -Anthony Edit: it’s definitely still broken though lol http://imgur.com/PxlHpkQ
  9. Quick question. I'm going to Canada (Vancouver) in a couple of days. I recently moved off of my parent's account and to my own, and am now on the Unlimited Freedom plan with Sprint Premium International experience. I see that I get included highspeed/4G LTE data in Canada with this service, and I was just wondering if anyone knew how much data I get? I will only be there for 4-5 days, so I probably won't need a lot, but I am just curious. Thanks! -Anthony

    I'm on Beta 1, currently still sitting at 32.0. -Anthony
  12. Now that you mention that, I believe I now remember that eHRPD made it so that CDMA to LTE handoffs would be smooth, but they didn't work the other way around. Which would explain why they couldn't use EVDO for fallback when they leave LTE coverage. This answers my question, thank you! -Anthony
  13. Quick question. I don't think I've seen this mentioned before, or I just don't remember, but I can't imagine that I'm the only one to think about it. Has Sprint considered using EVDO/eHRPD to do VoLTE hand-offs to 3G? I would imagine if it's not being done, there is some technical limiting factor about it. I've always understood VoLTE to be a form of VOIP, which I would think means that it can go over any data network, and since eHRPD and LTE can hand-off to one another (or I think it was one can hand off to one but not to the other), then I can't see why Sprint couldn't do this. Of course, my lack of knowledge in the subject of VoLTE doesn't help me, either. -Anthony
  14. Well, not until the Fall, but we at least have a time frame now! -Anthony

    Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    On iOS 11.3 beta on iPhone X, still nothing in the Settings app about Calling Plus. Will be interested to see if it appears in later updates. -Anthony
