    Does anybody know what IR means on the device info section?

    My S8 has an IR in parentheses after the device name. None of my other devices have this. What does it mean?

    The S8 doesn't have IR. S6 was the last of its kind.

    I miss the IR. It is a feature I've had and used off and on since DUN on my Nokia 6340i. Certainly not important enough for me to not buy a phone though. My Note 8, S8, and S8+ are all unlocked and subquently BYOD. I read through the other thread. Hardly seems tested. I have a way to test for IR, but it seems like a lot of effort for probably no reward. Did you contact Cricket? Check XDA? I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see you the only one Ruth a Vrivket IMEI S8 on here. Cricket wants an absolute fortune. I bought my wife's for $300 over 6 months ago as a comparison.

    Seriously, did you have a rton of credits to burn through? I see they're still wanting $650 for what's now a year old and about to be replaced. I know it isn't going EOL, but you'd figure they'd start discounting.
