    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.
  2. My wife and I noticed this behavior while "Roaming" on T-Mobile this weekend while on HWY 16 in North Carolina near Charlotte.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  7. 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.

    I agree, my PH-1 loves 1x800 and the signal levels are about the same as my Note 8 side-by-side.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

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

    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I tried for a second unit for my 60,000 Square Ft. office and they were not able to add a second unit to my account. Perhaps they want to limit distribution for now until production ramps up.
  13. Yes, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac wave 2 outdoor access point with Internal Antennas.

    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    My Magic Box finally connected today in Hickory, NC (Charlotte Market), however it would not connect just 6 miles away in Conover, NC as of Sunday. Unfortunately, it does not extend the B41 signal far enough into the building for it to reach my work area. Additionally, without the MB, where I used to receive a -94dBm B41 signal, I am now at -117dBm, I believe one of the sectors is offline or has been adjusted and no longer reaches the front of our building. I believe that I am now connecting to a site that is further away and more congested. Interestingly enough, it operates without GPS lock.
