  1. Responding to a few earlier posts, Sprint does have an Ookla server in Minneapolis and they were put on the Verizon neutral host iDAS at the MOA.
  2. It's about time. Hopefully lilotimz or wiwavelength/s4gru can answer, but with eHRPD, can calls hand off from LTE to CDMA? Has Sprint made any progress with this? I noticed that it was mentioned earlier but nobody really got a clear answer.

    Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    Someone here can probably explain this, but what exactly is preventing Sprint from doing full on VoLTE? Lack of macro density? Lack of coverage? Something in the core of their network? I remember years ago their excuse was lack of fallback to CDMA, but what's causing it today? Why can't they do a full scale VoLTE launch like Verizon did? Or at least a market-by-market launch like AT&T, where they know they have the LTE reliability and capacity?
  4. Thank you. I agree completely. You mean to tell me that Sprint, who has a nationwide roaming agreement with Verizon for voice/text, does better than T-Mobile? Shocking.
  5. First, those are 3rd party sources. If that makes me "hate them" then yes I'm a hater LOL. Secondly, I don't hate T-Mobile or Sprint. In fact, I have a line with T-Mobile. AT&T just has 4x as many cells where I live... T-Mobile only has a few less than them... Sprint has like 9 sites cover 280K people.
  6. LOL, ok... www.rootmetrics.com/en-US/content/mobile-performance-in-the-us-part-1-performance-across-the-entire-united Sprint ranks ahead of them in call and text... which they can roam on Verizon for. https://opensignal.com/reports/2017/08/usa/state-of-the-mobile-network www.speedtest.net/reports/united-states/ https://www.pcmag.com/Fastest-Mobile-Networks Don't be delusional. *based on Sprint's interpretation of Nielsen data

    Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    All of the core specs are identical except for the size-dependent ones (battery, display size, resolution) I think a lot of the hype for the 2 XL vs the 2 is how much better the design of the Pixel 2 XL is as opposed to the regular Pixel 2... obviously talking about bezels and the curved display. You can't go wrong with the smaller Pixel, it has all the same features as the 2 XL and a better (Samsung) display.

    Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    Thanks for clearing up the confusion. I wonder why Google's spec page doesn't show the same thing. It seemed a little ridiculous to me that they could make 4x4 work on 2 but not 25...

    Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    So the Pixel 2/ Pixel 2 XL support 4x4 on B2 but not on B25? That seems like an odd omission... is that a typo?

    Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    This is an interesting experience given that Verizon's VoLTE is prioritized on QoS and the handsets will hold LTE for the phone call than it would for a normal data session... curious as to why this happens to you, and how Sprint has better signal than Verizon there.
  11. Same thoughts here. Looks very similar to AT&T's LTE reach (in my experience)

    iOS11 - now available.

    If you open the app, leave the app for maybe 5-10 seconds and then reopen it (without force closing) the Cast option should show up. I've been running this build for about a week.

    Sprint 3xCA ?

    Old, but here's some 3xCA from my iPhone 7 on Boost's unlimited plan in Duluth, MN.

    No QoS like the other 3? That won't be good. Their network is already saturated enough as is in some areas.
