    iPhone XS Thread

    Is MCC/MNC under Field Test? How do I view the LTE Band under the new Field Test? The new Field Test seems much more comprehensive than the old version.

    That's great news! I'd love to look more, but.... This online application (https://acaprod9.dcra.dc.gov/CitizenAccess/Default.aspx) will be down for maintenance from Friday January 18, 6:00 pm to Monday January 21, 7:00 am. ☹️

    Apple nailed it with the iPhone XS in terms of "universal" network support for the time being it seems.

    Is Washington DC one of those areas? I have roaming enabled on my iPhone XS.
  7. Any S4GRU members going to the Super Bowl or planning to be near the stadium? Could you let us know how Sprint's coverage is? ---------- About the DAS: http://www.rcrwireless.com/20150129/network-infrastructure/digging-das-superbowl-tag4

    T-Mobile announced a merger needing Trump administration approval. The next day, 9 executives had reservations at Trump’s hotel. T-Mobile CEO’s first stop after cutting Sprint deal?

    Very nice!
  16. I've used Rootmetrics to do quite a few Hexes in the Downtown DC area and up into the Northwest stretches out to Bethesda and Rockville. It works well and updates quickly. When I'm out walking around, it actually encourages me to go some extra steps to get to the slow or blank hexes. If you don't mind slamming your device or the network pretty hard and you're plugged into your car or a power brick, you can set the Speed Test to continuous mode. Sensorly feels completely abandoned to me.

    There’s definitely some interesting history between Legere and the President. Wonder if this has any impact on the Merger. From May 2018: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-05-02/t-mobile-ceo-checks-into-trump-hotel-on-fence-mending-dc-mission

    I'm running 12.1.2 on my iPhone XS in the DC area and I'm not having any issues on VoLTE or with Wi-Fi Calling.

    I just hope we never get to this point if a merger happens: AT&T to begin upgrading existing LTE phones to ‘5G E’ Given Neville's recent Blog Post, it doesn't seem likely, but companies can change over time.... https://twitter.com/NevilleRay/status/1075754021560901633 https://twitter.com/NevilleRay/status/1076284138842349568 T-Mobile did it: This isn’t the first time that service providers have manipulated customers in this manner. T-Mobile and AT&T both labeled HSPA+ as 4G and Sprint tried to convince the world that its WiMax network was just as good as LTE.
