    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I think the reason why they did this was because I didn't have any lines available. I'm approved for 15 and all 15 are in use, despite having requested one of my lines to be canceled out immediately, which of course they failed to do. They are going to wait until the end of the billing cycle . I may still call to see what they can do. I mean, if I have 15, why not approve me for 20. Never missed a payment or been late since 2000.

    So I get to work this morning and found that my Gen2 MagicBox was deactivated when Sprint shipped out my Gen3 unit. Apparently it will take until Weds to get a MB3 from Louisville, KY to Hickory, NC (Charlotte area). If they were going to deactivate my old unit, it would have been nice if they would have overnighted the Gen3 to me.

    I called Magic Box Support back this afternoon and the gentleman promptly placed an order for an "AIRSPAN MAGIC BOX GEN 3." The order confirmation page shows it as a "Sprint Magic Box Gold." Does Sprint still attach these as a line to our customer accounts? I'm approved for 15 lines, but they are all currently in use.

    My Gen2 died about a month ago. Just called MB support and they told me the MB Gold is out of stock and to call back a week from Friday. I'm thinking I need to call back and check tomorrow morning. The girl kept hitting mute and didn't seem to know what she was doing. Meanwhile, I have a return kit being sent for the Gen 2.

    Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Sprint held back the first Pie update for a little while and the security updates since, but not this one. I'm not sure why the change, but I like it. Perhaps they only hold back updates if the modem is updated and needs re-certifying or something along those lines.
  6. My wife and I noticed this behavior while "Roaming" on T-Mobile this weekend while on HWY 16 in North Carolina near Charlotte.
  7. No surprise here, but the Charlotte, NC results show that Sprint has a lot of catching up to around here. 30.63 / 8.05 - AT&T 25.32 / 7.74 - T-Mobile 7.28 / 2.12 - Sprint 30.95 / 6.46 - Verizon
  8. Some Mini Macro's have gone in since early last month here in the greater Charlotte area.

    Galaxy S9 Series user thread

    What sort of issues exist? Last weekend I upgraded my wife's S7 Edge to the S9+ and she's very happy with it so far. She used to drop calls 2-3 times during her short 10 min commute to work, now she holds on to her calls for the entire drive. Happy wife, happy life, right?

    The S4GRU BYOD Sim Compatibility Chart

    @lilotimz, do you know what the SIM SIMOLW506TQ is used for? According to https://bestcellular.com/product/simolw506tq/, it covers a wide range of phones for Sprint.
  11. As someone who could benefit from a Sprint/Charter relationship, I can get behind this! We need all of the small cells, strand mounts and backhaul we can get in NC/SC to fill in the very many gaps that exist on the Sprint network here.

    Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I agree, my PH-1 loves 1x800 and the signal levels are about the same as my Note 8 side-by-side.
  13. Well, now that they have Altice and Cox, I'm hopeful they will sign with Charter Spectrum next. Having two decent sized cable companies on board may help to convince the others to join in.
  14. I have the 80GB (40GB Double Data) Plan and also have it available, however, I did accept Sprint's "Gift" of Unlimited Data for 6 Months, so I think that is why it is showing on my account. Did you receive and accept the offer of 6 mo. Unlimited Data?

    And Donald Trump is on his way to Japan this afternoon. Any coincidence? I think not .
