    Call MB support yesterday after three days down. According to the rep I spoke with, my magicbox died with a "known" issue and they are shipping me a replacement. They did no troubleshooting, tried nothing, checked nothing...

    Hmm, my magic box has stopped working in the last few days, hangs at connecting to network. Magic box had been fine up until then, going to get in contact with support tomorrow Anyone else had their MB go funky in the last few days? Seems to coincide with what appears to be changes to ehrpd/LTE hand off changes

    I honestly don't know. My assumption is that Sprint is forcing an LTE->eHRPD cut off at a lesser signal strength than previous to ensure QOS when on VoLTE. This ensures that a VoLTE session is stable in a call. The fix is network densification...

    I did every beta of 9 and had it on release day, this behavior was not occurring. I'm certain it has to do with VoLTE and sharper handoff metrics.

    I'm thinking this is in relation to VoLTE coming with more strict signal strength hand offs...

    Started having very weird band changes in the past few weeks. My phone will stick and hold on to ehprd for a long time. Even when I get home to my magic box, it can take up to 30 mins to get a stable LTE signal.

    Normally that is done automatically as part of the OS upgrade process, very weird

    Got the VM indicator figured out, somehow my account switch for the Voice Mail indicator got switched to off. A Sprint Rep was able to flip it for me and all is good now. On DP5 now, none of the Hidden Menus are working yet, PRL and Network updates hang.

    If it was only available without TouchWiz, my Note 2 was one of my favorite devices!!!
