    Has anyone on eSIM switched to T-Mobile eSIM?

    After reaching "peak VoLTE", I've noticed my phone not getting VoLTE in places it used to. This began sometime about a month ago in San Francisco, so many calls go over 1x. Has anyone noticed this too?
  3. This applies to MB Gold and non-Gold? I haven't received mine yet, but maybe explains the lower signal strength.
  4. Well, my MBG no longer reaches the street and now speeds capped at 17Mbit... It feels like it's running at 1/4 the power and half the speed, but data usage dropped from 80GB/month to 2GB/month.

    I noticed that my phone doesn't connect to 1x anymore unless I'm using Magic Box Gold. Another sign that VoLTE is fully deployed in my neighborhood with the exception of the MBG.

    Well, looking at the upcoming Pixel 5 rumors, the new phone seems so mediocre that it feels more like like a Pixel 3.
  7. I should clarify that I did Factory Reset to the magic box, not my Pixel 4 XL.
  8. Well, I did Factory Reset on Saturday, but still don't get reception on the street anymore and data usage is low. Definitely seems like power setting was altered on the MB Gold. Still waiting for VoLTE.
  9. Dumb question. Does VoLTE kick in for all calls, or only for calls where the other end is also on a cellular connection and their device supports VoLTE?
  10. Sounds like factory reset is the way to go. I'm assuming I won't need to contact Sprint to re-enable anything after the factory reset.
  11. Well, my MB suddenly dropped from the WiFi. I didn't get VoLTE, so who knows whether it's an upgrade or a bug. When I connected it again, I'm no longer able to get reception outside on the sidewalk. Not sure if they turned off directionality, strength or something combination of that and other settings. Data usage dropped from 3 GB / day to under 2 GB / month!!
  12. I got this email from Sprint: You’re just a few steps away from a better network experience with Sprint and T-Mobile. Improve your coverage now by reconnecting your Sprint Magic Box to your home internet. My MB Gold is currently on Wi-Fi working just fine, so wondering if this a general spam sent to all owners, or does this process to re-select Wi-Fi force it update its config in some way.
  13. I did double check, but it was doing about 2GB a day at 2.4 GHz and about 3GB a day on 5GHz. Now it's maybe couple hundred MB a day. Perhaps it's a slow rollout. To be honest, I haven't tried VoLTE on MB yet. Sounds like it's time to give it a whirl... BTW. This is all in San Francisco.
  14. VoLTE requires better bandwidth control, so capping speeds night indicate VoLTE is coming.
  15. Anyone noticed that MB Gold speeds have been drastically capped even with Wi-Fi Backhaul? I'm not getting more than 7Mbit anymore where I used to see 30Mbit +.
