    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Just received a MB in addition to existing AR3LTE. No request to return yet.

    MagicBox doesn't work for phone calls unless you have LTE Calling Plus enabled, which is not yet supported on iPhones and many other phones.

    Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    Pixel - great phone but no LTE Calling Plus or WiFi Calling. BIG gotchas...

    How many times have I heard that line! Lol. Hope you're right. But... It might not hurt to wait til the cookie is cracked before upgrading, since there might be issues going from 8 to 7 back to 8....

    Have you tried joining the beta program? Are they on 8 yet? Could be a drawback for me -- I am currently on 8.1 regular release with my Pixel. Just no Calling Plus or WiFi Calling on Sprint. This might be a reason to go with the Z2Force. Still haven't made the purchase. Won't be before Friday evening.

    So, no case needed for the S8 Active? Are the S8's on Android 8 yet?

    Just a wild guess... It'll probably be worth considerably more than the Z2 in 18 months as well.

    Interesting. I liked the X2 and X1 was ok, for their time, the shake for camera/flashlight features, in particular. I am now leaning back to the S8+, based on a few things, including the fact that I just missed the window for a free Alexa speaker snapon.

    I have owned Motorola phones before and liked their features. Samsungs do have a lot of annoying processes.

    Thanks for the advice. Looks like I will be altering my choice.

    Was told the Z2 only has WiFi Calling, not LTE Calling Plus... Did this change recently?

    OK - Getting ready to purchase and activate a Samsung Galaxy S8+ on Sprint. I am upgrading from a Google Pixel XL, which I loved, except to say that there is no WiFi Calling and no LTE-Calling Plus, and without the WiFi Calling, no service inside many of the buildings I frequent. This is your only and last chance to stop me if I'm making a mistake (i.e., is there a better phone?) Here are some points I considered in my thought process: 1. The Note8 is simply too tall for me. I don't like the way it feels in my hand or pocket. 2. The S8 is a bit too small. 3. The S8+ seems like it should be wider, too, BUT, of the S8-series, it is as close to the size I want as I am going to get. 4. I also looked at the LG-series, but I am afraid to get one due to repair issues, plus their bloat apps. 5. I looked at the MotoZ2 and X4, but I am hesitant to invest in one of them because of no LTE-Calling Plus. This was a very close second to the S8+... 6. I am a very app-heavy user. I totally use up the 4GB ram! Thanks for your time and consideration for your thoughts in advance

    Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    Hope I can get them to set up 2 or 3 LTE Airaves on my account, then, 'cuz one doesn't cover the ground floor of this bunker.

    Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    If you have an Airave 3 LTE and plug in a MagicBox nearby (i.e., with purpose to extend the range of the Airave in an area with no macro signal), will this do the trick?

    Does the Pixel 2 support Calling+ and/or WiFi Calling on Sprint?
