  1. I don't think Sprint is in a position to launch VoLTE yet. There are still WAY too many places in every market where LTE gets weak and drops to 3G. Sprint has this problem more than any of the other top dog carriers. If Sprint launched VoLTE today and had a decent line of handsets to use it, call drops would be an enormous issue given the current state of the network.
  2. I actually left Sprint about 8 months ago for Verizon but after I recently bought both a SIM-free iPhone 6S Plus and a Nexus 6P, I decided to give Sprint another chance. The network is definitely better this time around. Some time in the last 8 months, several things have happened that makes me say this: 1. I can now get band 41 at my place in Morrisville (Davis Drive at McCrimmon Parkway) and its solid enough for both phones to remain parked there. 2. In Cary, Sprint has finally upgraded the equipment on the water tower at Walnut Street and Maynard Road near Cary Towne Center. That en
  3. Yes, it displays 1X when connected to 1X, as it should. Sent from my Galaxy Note 4 using Tapatalk
  4. No, that hasn't even been announced officially yet. That's probably not coming for a week or two still. Sent from my Galaxy Note 4 using Tapatalk
  5. Absolutely is recommend it. It's a great phone and the Sprint issues will get fixed soon. Honestly, if you have Wi-Fi most places that you go, just force the phone to 3G and you'll never encounter these issues with calls and texts. It's only a problem when connected to LTE.

  6. And when there's a delay, there's a greater than 75% chance that your recipient is going to get between 2 and 8 copies if your text. :/ Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  7. For me, it's worse when the phone is connected to WiFi. So, I just leave my phone off Wi-Fi and it does OK. I hardly ever miss calls, and if people complain about getting multiple copies of my texts, I just flip the phone to 3G until I'm done. That always solves the problem. This is definitely something Google and Motorola can fix. It will most likely require changes to the radio firmware which will be included in a new update. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  8. I live in an Ericsson market and I have the same issues. This is a Nexus 6 issue, not a Sprint issue. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  9. I have no texting issues at all. I use GV for texting because I swap SIM cards regularly depending on where I'm traveling. I do all my GV SMS in Hangouts and haven't noticed anything. I am also not integrated with Sprint. Sent from my iPhone 6 Plus using Tapatalk
  10. Sorry. Meant to reply to NexGenCPU. That carrier speed test video he posted was mine. haha Sent from my Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 using Tapatalk

  13. So...*#*#33284#*#* doesn't work for getting into the debug menu. Has anyone figured out an alternate way to get in? Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  14. I admit it's speculation based on past history. I guess we'll find out. Sent from my iPhone 6 Plus using Tapatalk
  15. The thing that sucks about the Apple SIM as it pertains to Sprint is that carrier freedom is a one-way street. You can take a Sprint-purchased iPad Air 2 to another carrier (T-Mobile for instance). You will not, however, be able to take your T-Mobile-purchased iPad Air 2 with an Apple SIM and bring it to Sprint. The reason? Sprint whitelists IMEI numbers in the activation system that is used by stores and customer service. Historically, Sprint and other CDMA2000 carriers will only whitelist IMEI numbers for the devices that they sell, and occasionally devices sold through third parties like Go
