  1. Going to the release that's linked in the article, you'll find this quote: "The new standalone 5G NR software can be installed on existing Ericsson Radio System hardware." Clicking the link of "Ericsson Radio System" and going about 3/4 of the way down you'll find mention of some antenna models. Sprint is currently using AIR 6468 antennas with the updated AIR 6488 antennas replacing those. Only using those models will there be a software switched upgrade
  2. To all the people crying about VoLTE availability on certain existing phones and trying to relate that with the requirement for VoLTE being turned on for access to 5G need to realize that none of the devices they are crying about will ever see 5G and none of the 5G devices will have to "wait" for VoLTE to be accessible in settings. Two unrelated things. As for VoLTE not being nationwide, neither is the current deployment of 5G
  3. last word in the first row (from my desktop view) of the quote you made....LTE 😅
  4. Remember that the spectrum each carrier has isn't something they physically withhold from each other, but are licenses they are allowed to utilize. Sprint could easily use whatever frequency they wanted to (within hardware capabilities), but due to regulations regarding legal rights to use and to mitigate interference, are not allowed to. Back in the day, antennas and coax as well as the technology such as CDMA or GSM wasn't as efficient and manufacturers were making specific equipment for smaller subsets of frequencies to help ensure ideal conditions per frequency. We no longer need one high band, one mid band, and two low band antennas per sector
  5. I had VoLTE with the last carrier settings and still have it now
  6. After updating to 12.2 I'm now on carrier 36.1. I appreciate the changes in the "About" section with the new grouping of information
  7. I'm in San Antonio. I had intermittent connections yesterday and I'm currently connected. If it's happening with other people across multiple gen devices and affecting iOS and Android, I wonder if it's just a bad batch of software?
  8. Having a similar issue. I haven't been able to connect to MB since last week. It shows as connected to donor, but my phone just will not connect. I've reset both devices, and performed network settings update on my phone. Maybe it's time to request a MB-Gold upgrade
  9. I wish at big events like this, they would flip the priority to prefer upload > download. 13mbps on a fairly empty network isn't going to mean much when it gets crowded
  10. https://newsroom.sprint.com/my-sprint-rewards-program-thanks-sprint-customers-and-celebrates-with-valuable-perks-and-deals.htm "We are giving customers great perks – including free pizza and discounted movie tickets – on their own schedule. This is our way of saying thanks for being a Sprint customer. At Sprint, we deliver." Nice little dig, with "on their own schedule", to T-Mobile Tuesdays
  11. The article confuses that point though by stating this: "Some parts of the FCC operation avoid the cut-off of federal funding. These include FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and the three FCC commissioners who collectively will decide whether to allow the nation’s fourth-largest wireless carrier to merge into the third-largest. Money for their posts comes from sources other than congressional funding, according to the agency’s shutdown plan." If they are the ones deciding and their job funding isn't tied to congressional funding, then they should be doing work and keep the clock running IMO Read more here: https://www.kansascity.com/news/politics-government/article223821080.html#storylink=c
  12. I'm not on the beta program anymore. Wonder if the 12.1.1 full build will come out first or my phone will decide to update the PRL 🤷‍♂️
  13. my iPhone XS is staying on 55069 even after trying ##UPDATE# multiple times -_-
  14. If you are already on one of these plans, do the new hotspot allocations get updated on your new cycle or do early switchers get left out?
