  1. I had TNX with new T-Mobile SIMs for a few days. I would lose all signal and phones would not pick up the very strong Sprint network in the area so we put the old SIMs back in and reactivated on Sprint. It's all apparently a work in progress.
  2. Yes, Sprint bands are still OK here. Weird stuff going on here ... not even close to what I might call smooth. We have 4 phones in our home on our plan. iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone SE-2, Pixel 2. The trouble started a few weeks ago when the iPhone X stopped connecting to our Magic Box Gold or any other Sprint LTE band, though the other three phones were fine. I tried to get tech support through chat on the Sprint website to help us out, but they were helpless. So I took the phone into what is historically a corporate Sprint store, but now T-Mobile branded. At the store, I was helped by a T
  3. This band switching is happening in my home too. Pixel 2 and an iphone X. Neither will connect to Sprint bands anymore, including our Magic Box at home. Customer Service is helpless
  4. I notified the Tapatalk folks a number of days ago. They got back to me yesterday and said they've determined it is a plugin error on the server hosting the forum and that they've reached out to the admin ... which would be Robert. Anyone heard from Robert?
  5. I'm having Tapatalk troubles again. Anyone else?
  6. From what I understand, the mmWave antennas are very expensive. And adding them to the design is not trivial. I've seen Google employees on message boards report that they are working with TMobile to get the Pixel 5 mmWave approved for the network. No timeline, though. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  7. Well ... If you're like me and have a CDMA (non VoLTE) device on Sprint, I can still wait around ... But for how long? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  8. In a chat session with customer service today they told me that VoLTE is only supported on the MB Gold when using LTE for backhaul. For whatever that's worth. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah, first time I tried ... Long time ago ... I didn't have it for a few days, then opened a chat with customer service, and they told me it wasn't possible. I may give it another try. Thanks for the reply and the reset tip. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  10. Does volte work for you when connected to your Ethernet backhauled magic box? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  11. No I really don't. Anyone with experience or info on my question above? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  12. I just got an email from Sprint (an ad) trying to get me to plug my Magic Box into my home internet service. I did this once before and lost VoLTE. Seemed VoLTE only worked with LTE relay. There's no way I'm putting this on my home network if I'm going to lose VoLTE. Anyone have any updates or other info suggesting that this has been enabled? (VoLTE using Ethernet or WiFi backhaul, that is?) Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  13. FYI - If you're not getting TMobile bands, try updating your phone's data profile. In a Sprint-less area but with T-Mobile all around I wasn't getting data on my unlocked Pixel until I performed a data profile update and then a hands free activation ... Which actually took a while outside the *home network* ... But now I have B2 showing native and humming right along. Now I just have to figure out the equivalent for the 3 iPhones in my family that are having issues. Anyone with ideas? I'm clueless with the Apple devices. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  14. I have an iPhone 8 and an iPhone X that wouldn't use volte over the magic box when it was using Ethernet backhaul. They do when using lte for backhaul. Just my experience. I can see where maybe if Sprint doesn't have complete control of qos from end to end maybe they just won't allow it?? I don't know.
  15. I was disappointed that while connected to wired Ethernet backhaul that volte would no longer work. Bummer. I had to call customer support and have them reset a few things to get it to reconnect to lte so I could get volte back.
