    Isaiah 41:10 ~
    So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
  1. I only have a Sprint version, but an AT&T one should work perfectly fine with CA because it has the same bands, just adding one for B30 on AT&T. Isaiah 41:10 ~ “Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.”
  2. Got it as well on my 6S. No noticeable signal difference, but I do have crappy reception in my house, so I wouldn't see a change anyway. Isaiah 41:10 ~ “Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.”
  3. Thanks. I'm glad it helped! That verse is like my life verse or my motto. Isaiah 41:10 ~ “Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.”
  4. As far as I know, they are just Sprint's doing. I do wish that Apple would open up the network customizability/information more and would fix field test, especially for iPhone 6S/+ Isaiah 41:10 ~ “Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.”
  5. Exactly my experience in almost every city I go to. Occasionally great connections, but usually it is flipping airplane mode consistently to avoid 3G or a weak B26. These problems aren't new either. Sprint really needs to better optimize/tune the settings for their (probably) most popular line of phones (iPhones). Isaiah 41:10 ~ “Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.”
  6. I see Carrier bundle 24.2 is out for iPhone. Anyone know what's in the update?
  7. If so I would think it would only be minimally because of the small bandwidth, but every bit helps.
  8. Yeah. I think it's just me and my family because we've changed phones several times and none of us have that consistent of a signal
  9. If anyone has trouble reading Sprint's map (Like I do) because of the similar shades of yellow, I found Sprint's map but with different colors. It is on Boost Mobile's website, so it doesn't have some of the LTE roaming agreements like with USCC, but it's pretty much the same otherwise. I definitely found it helpful. https://coverage.sprint.com/mycoverage.jsp?id=BO543STC Hope it helps!
  10. No, actually in Iowa City, LTE is hard to pick up, so you almost always sit on 3G and have to toggle airplane mode several times before you can pick up LTE(Provided you are really near the tower). I do agree that the iPhone 6S' signal-holding is a nice step up from the 5S, but it still needs more work. I do have PRL 54054 (Sprint 24.1)
  11. I have had the same experience many times in IA with the same issue. It's like the network prefers people sit on 3G and doesn't even realize when people are near towers or when the LTE signal should be strong. I do wonder if part of the issue is Apple. I know Androids have the issues too, but it seems like Apple devices are worst tuned for the network.
  12. See, I think herein lies the problem. Consistency. Sprint does have wonderful spectrum to use and many people have wonderful experiences. However, there are people (Like in this thread) that have abysmal experiences in the same towns. I think if Sprint can make the network a more consistent/even experience, then more people would switch and/or stay. I know here in east IA, there is no B41 (Because IA is rural, so B41 is owned by a company that uses it for rural internet), and B25/26 is deployed in some major cities like Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, and Waterloo. However, the towers are frequently overloaded and LTE coverage doesn't go very far from towers (Towers that are already few and far between), so you are stuck on 3G mostly which is molasses slow. Overall a meh experience. However, I have been to Des Moines, St. Louis, and Nashville recently, and they all are not perfect, but they are more dense, are faster, and very reliable. I'm not saying it'll be easy, but if they can get consistency like AT&T or Verizon, they will definitely be a force to be reckoned with.
  13. Yeah. Clearly there is B41 (Sensorly backs that up), but it needs a lot of tuning so that people stay on it longer and so that it is more consistent. Hopefully NGN fixes it, it's just frustrating in the meantime.
  14. Anyone else in the Des Moines area have issues connecting and staying on B41? I am in town for several days and I seem to be stuck on B25 &B26. The few seconds I've been on B41, I did see the 3rd carrier. (FYI, I'm mostly downtown)
  15. This is a clear improvement, but I am beginning to get a little confused because all the new charts sprint is creating, like the one above, don't have labels and/or markings on the axes. They really need to label.
