Problems with Galaxy Nexus and Wifi-4G-3G Handoffs

Recommended Posts

I didn't see a topic on this when I searched, but I was just wondering how widespread this issue may be.  Since my Gnex was upgraded to 4.3, I have had a ton of issues with the handoff between 4G-3G (and sometimes with Wifi-3G).  I have been refreshed as well as a full wipe and nothing seems to make it any better.


Here is a Sprint community thread on the same thing I'm experiencing:



I'm ready to root and move on to Cyanogenmod and see if that helps any, but the whole reason I bought this phone was to get out of the rooting/roming game I spend so much time on when I was at T-Mobile.


Anyone have any other thoughts on this?

Yup, the 4.3 update has issues as you mentioned.  So many users are having the same problem as you mentioned and no fix has been posted or at least clarified by Sprint. I wanted to roll back but I'm no expert in rooting and swapping radios on phones....Unfortunately had to upgrade from the Gnex to the Moto X.


Have you contacted Sprint?

Yes, all they have done so far is a *#*#72786#*#* and a refresh on their side.  I was debating taking it into the store to see what they could do, but honestly I doubt there is much that can be done other than roll back to 4.2, and I can do that myself. My only option really is to move on to custom roms (I've had many rooted phones over the years, but I went to the GNex for the stock experience and the hope they would update quickly (ha!).


I'm not really interesting in moving to a different device, and my contract is up next June so I'm just waiting that out so I can move carriers if the 4G rollout doesn't get any better in Louisville.

Yup, rebooting or resetting the phone won't fix the issue. This is bug in android 4.3 on the Gnex. 


I feel you about upgrading, I'm under contract until December of 2014 and decided to get the deal from Moto X. 


I love stock android, even tho the Moto X has a few bloatware apps and slight moto customization but I think I can live with it.


Still thinking of buying the Nexus 5 but debating. lol

    • M2M build time; new Raspberry Pi3b+ came in today! AC wifi, Bluetooth 4.2 and low power. Ethernet still runs over the USB interface so tops at 330 but better than the 100 fast on previous builds. I have to plug it in to my M.2 LTE radio to see if I can get top speeds. We have one Triband antenna site (total D: ) in our CMA that has progressively improved from just a few days ago to my first 100+ test evAr! on the n6P, and in our market.

      What are other users machine to machine or um, IoT projects and what are your results on the Sprint network? I have a few locations running these for connectivity, security and A/V operations over cellular and/or load balanced DOCSIS 2.0 with some edge routers, one location has fiber as main, a couple are all LTE/WIFI. Band 41 is new and brave here market wide, but great where it is so we use a mix of carriers.

      What are your experiences with plans? I simply purchase as many lines as I need and do the work to make them work with whatever network works best where I have to setup and do my work. I have seen some low power/low data plans for battery devices and such, seems like a way to prime subscribers, but they can just keep selling me UDP's and we are all happy.

      Any one use the Magic Box to help power projects? I have seen Boxes relay to hotspots, we made one directional beam from yagis, ductwork and punished a 2.5 wave through a forest for LTE push to talk between 4 users. Super users could attach apps to an LTE radio or use a phone to open doors or kick on a camera! Imagine if Gramma rolls in and Her Chair meets her at the door when her mac id hits your load balancing with the magic box? You just won the family picnic son. I tore mine down (like a dick, don't do this) put it in the car, in our attic, on a pole, and next week in the air. 

      What do your projects work towards? Long time listeners will note LTE connectivity is our main bag here in the not so sticks, we like some netsec, and putting in the time will yield a device that is convenient yet doesn't serve you ads based on surrounding conversation, search content and >9000 metadata fed into some Dale Gribble based conglomonstrosity. 



      Bonus:  Your previous content has been restored. I love this feature when I x when I should have not. 2012 Belusnecropolis appreciates this and donates 2018 accordingly.
    • All of those configurations in my Market seem to be Verizon
    • If sprint is planning to cover most of the other 50% of sites with tri band this year. Starting in April sprint will have a lot of work to do for the remainder of the year .. haven't seen to many reporting new coverage/ upgrades early on. Was sprint really waiting for the new capex to kick in ?   Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk        
    • I have, S9+ is superior in every way.
