    iPhone XS Thread

    So I updated my phone this evening and and changed the setting for voice to work over LTE. I made a call to someone on consumer cellular (which is at&t if I’m correct) and had WiFi off and my LTE logo was still up so I tried using data during the call and it worked throughout the call. Then a made a call after to a sprint subscriber after on an iPhone XS updated but did not have the setting enabled and my LTE dropped during the call. I understand why it wasn’t working on the second call but how was it working during a call with an AT&T user? Does volte work across carriers?

    So far in my house next to a xs on the older radio it seems to be on band 41 in a place in my house where the older radio is on band 25. This is a very initial comparison so I’m not saying it’s better or worse yet just my first observation.

    Seems like the modem version was updated on the 12.1 update. Anyone notice any difference? Also got a carrier update right after the update finish. Went from version 33 to 34.1.

    I got my iPhone XS on October 5 and my battery health is already at 99% is this something I should be concerned about or no?

    Have they done this all over this market or only in certain areas?

    My old 6s wouldn’t roam on T-Mobile either. Neither will my parents iPhone 6.

    Has sprint made band 25 10x10 in more rural areas? I took a Speedtest between bowling green and eolia on hwy 61 and got 60 down 11 up on band 25.

    Ya I know it’s bad. My ping times have been higher than normal since I got this phone.

    Anywhere from 90-150ms. It does seem like I get higher ping times on this XS in general which is annoying.

    Yeah I did a few on T-Mobiles LTE while roaming. When I had the best signal strength on band 71 I got 50 down 5 up. Average was around 20 down 3-4 up. Us cellular roaming is a lot slower.

    Well I made my first trip up to our property in the middle of nowhere with my XS. Once I started roaming I noticed I’m on T-Mobiles band 71 most of the way and band 2 a little. It seems to hold band 26 about to the same point or maybe a little further than my old 6s. Switching to roaming is way more seamless with this phone compared to the 6s. The 6s would always get stuck on extended 1x a lot which was really annoying and unusable. The XS stayed connected to some sort of LTE the whole trip which would have never happened with the old phone. My old 6s never would roam on T-Mobile so that made a big difference plus the band 71. Normally with my 6s my phone would roam on us cellular the whole way which the XS stayed on T-Mobile until right when we get to our property then connected to us cellulars band 12. Overall the XS is a big difference in my experience here between the T-Mobile roaming+ band 71 and it not dropping to 1x every five minutes like my 6s use to. This XS will refuse to lose an LTE signal in my experience so far. I’m really starting to love this phone!

    Has T-Mobile started deploying band 71 in Missouri?

    The phone seems to latch onto LTE and won’t let go. It will show no bars of LTE pretty often. Sometimes it’s usable sometimes it’s not. I’m rarely ever on 3g unless I turn off LTE in settings when it’s holding on to a useless signal.
