    I noticed after the recent update, I still have the Samsung members app. I thought they would get rid of this after the final release??

    Just got the S9+ Pie update, really no VoLTE? Geeez
  3. I had to work on the issue first hand back in 2009/2010 when I was on the communications board for my county. Back then our county operated a Motorola SmartNet Type 2 800 system that was experiencing this Nextel interference issue after Sprint purchased Nextel. I suspected that Nextel knew about this becoming problem later down the road due to the fact that Nextel had went all around buying up 800 licenses for their iDEN network. Sprint not only had to pay for the re banding of our system but had to purchase our county entirely new radios both portable and mobile units due to the fact that the current configuration on the radio system which was built in 1997 wouldn't take the re-banded frequencies.
  4. The first chapter needs to be about Gary Forsee, chapter 2 should mention the word Nextel. Sprint was on a roll with 3G EV-DO back in the day and one of the best 3G networks back then, I believe Sprint would have been a competitive and strong company if they stayed away from Nextel and focused on additional 3G sites and future spending on new spectrum. Instead Sprint devoted their time to purchasing Nextel's lackluster 800 iDEN nework that ended up causing more headache once it was known that it was causing interference with 800 public safety radio systems.

    So far it seems like the S9+ keep a more stable signal on 2500MHz.

    Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Android 8.1 Oreo has been released for the Essential.

    If you chose to leave I'd suggest you return the Magicbox a month before leaving Sprint, just to make sure they receive the box you do not want to be charged $250 for the Magicbox.

    Why are you returning the Magicbox if I may ask? If you do return it everything that was included needs to be returned to Sprint including the power bank. I hope people are not getting discouraged with the Magicbox when seeing slower data speeds, RF conditions do and will change as well as the donor site's load depending on time of day and subscriber growth. My Magicbox when I first received it would see download speeds anywhere around 8-12Mbps, as I continued to let it sit in the same spot for a few days speeds increased over 20Mbps with dips below 20Mbps depending on the time of day.

    Mine suppose to be delivered tomorrow, I'll post my observations on RF and HPUE tomorrow. My house sits around three Sprint cell sites, two of them running 2500MHz.
