    iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    iPhone 7 works great on T-Mo native roaming - it's hard to know sometimes because it will often just say Sprint. This has been in effect since at least iOS 12.1. VoLTE does not work on iPhone 7 and below.
  2. Is Dover an unannounced VoLTE soft launch area yet?

    VoLTE is prioritized, so calling shouldn't be an issue once that goes live. If your devices aren't connecting to the Magic Box's B41 signal, something is wrong. There shouldn't be a need to broadcast more bands from the MB, you either have a Magic Box issue or a device issue. I'd recommend calling support on that. In any case, if the Magic Box is getting a crap signal from the Macro site, then it can only broadcast crap out of it. Nothing that can really be done until your area has more site capacity. If you get a new Magic Box, you'll soon have the ability to connect it to your home internet for backhaul, rather than the slow cell site, so that may be worth looking into.

    My Gen2 is always on a -121dBm B41 signal as well. An improvement to -117 would be great and less "fringey." But, there's no reason not to use the Ethernet/Wi-Fi backhaul once enabled I suppose!

    Attics can reach 130-140ºF, though. Outside might be a bit more tolerable for the MB, unless you live in the Sahara. 🙂

    What's your area? I'm around Binghamton. Didn't know FiOS was coming....

    I think this was nixed on iOS12 for both modems.

    iPhone XS Thread

    Cool, works on my Xr! Thanks. Showing “0” in a non-VoLTE market. Makes sense. ? Edit: Think this thread should be renamed for XS/Xr?

    Where is the IMS status located in field test mode?

    Wonder if they somehow pushed the new firmware coming out that is supposed to improve the MB for VoLTE?
  12. Still no info on that screenshot with the WiFi option on a current gen Magic Box?? Would love to confirm if the current MBs can use WiFi backhaul. This would make it a game changer for my in-laws in a service hole. I’ve been harboring their magic box since it’s unusable at their house.
  13. Are VoLTE handoffs between different networks considered a soft handoff, though?
  14. Yeah, public wi-fi is a no go, especially if you're walking or on transit of some sort. I don't have Wi-Fi at work and find myself screwed when I'm on speakerphone and need to look something up for the call I'm on.
