G. Jason Schnellbacher - Lead Magic Box Sales, Marketing, Distribution, Deployment and Support at Sprint HQ doing a Q&A session on Reddit in The Wall A group blog by The Wall Editors Posted January 9 Since I got the 540 (isn't that the 1st generation MB?)... I've had it outside, but under a carport. I already have access to some Rohn tower sections...I just need something more able to withstand the elements. Apparently there is a solution. It should be on the way... I've seen a difference in the upload ability of the MB gold and the 2nd gen. Before I got the gold, I was able to get 12mbps down and 5mbps upload... but with the gold, I can't get hardly any upload at all. I'm hoping this will be solved by the outdoor solution (I'm sure it will be) (Edit) Without the magic box, I get nothing at all. I can put my phone in the same place where I have the MB and I get 1x800 and sometimes b26. Not every time, very odd. The box works, obviously, but how is the weird part. Now that I'll be able to put it in a more outside area, I'm hoping I can get a much better option.
