One more small thing I have come across.  Hopefully someone else has seen this.  Every time I start a call on Bluetooth, I get a popup screen asking me to select the Bluetooth, Speaker or phone.  Is there a way to turn this off?  This is a small issue, but I would prefer to have the ability to turn it off.

Do you have signalcheck installed? I know there's a setting in that app that beeps when it switches to and from lte. Took me a week go figure it out.

Well uninstalled Signal check and I still get the low beep.  I guess I will live with it for now.  Thanks for the help!!!

Dang, I knew mine would do that and it was signal check. I honestly can't think of what it might be, only thing I can say is double check the mobile data connections. I remember a older flip phone I had would beep when it got signal and bleeped when it lost signal. It may be buried in the settings somewhere. Other than that worse case is back everything up and factory reset.

Many an S4GRU member has had to be bleeped when he lost the ****ing signal.

i have just noticed that my phone seems to be completely dropping voice and data connectivity. it started with my wife complaining that her calls werent getting through to me on my drive home. i noticed yesterday with signal check, that my connectivity was completely dropping. the sprint portion of the phone was still saying i was connected to lte on the status bar, but signal check showed no connection. during this time, i couldnt call the phone, but it didnt go straight to voicemail. it still rang 5 times. when it did re-connect to the network, it was lte. i didnt notice the band though.

 

is this a phone problem or a network problem? all opinions welcome... ;)

 

anyone?

anyone getting a random static noise? i'm using my big over the ear headphones and get this wierd short static/distortion burst? its very short and about the same volume or lower than whatever should be playing at that particular instant.

 

its like the static on an FM tuner when you aren't quite tuned into the right frequency.

 

happens with music, netflix, youtube, so I don't think its an application issue, more like a system issue.

 

on the harmon kardon m8, only clarifi enabled, live stage disabled.

 

stock not rooted

Hoping someone can help. I've had this phone for 5 days and no LTE connection problems whatsoever, but last night I went into a low connection area and lost LTE which seemed normal. The problem is, now I can't seem to get it back no matter what I try. I've tried toggling airplane mode, updating prl/profile, toggling mobile data....

 

Any suggestions? My wife has the same exact phone and has LTE right now and we're in the same room. It would just seem odd that I would have a defective device considering it worked perfectly until last night.

 

Thanks for any help

So a quick update. After 30 minutes of being on the phone with Sprint, they referred me to the store. so as I'm driving into the store parking lot it starts working again. I'm so confused.

Try to rerun self activation. See earlier in this thread for the steps. Phone sometimes gets into a bad state, but that clears things up.

Thanks. Good to see that some of you went through something similar and that it's called down. I was fearing that I had a defective device.

Also, how long did it normally take for you to S4 the change after the self activation? I completed this step and my wife's phone still has LTE where mine says 3g.

What's weird is that right after it boots up after the self reset it does LTE and the Spark symbol but then after the phone reactivated abd updated prl it goes right back to 3g.

So it's gotten a little better. Now I just have LTE cutting in and out in an area where I normally get very fast speeds. I hate to go this route but do you think I should factory reset at this point? Not sure if there's a conflict with the software. Or should I really consider bringing the device back?

Others that had this problem exchanged their phone, so you might as well do a factory reset. Sorry that reactivation isn't helping you. My phone got into that state on three or four occasions that were all fixed with reactivation when I first got it, but I haven't had to do that for a while.

My phone had this problem and I simply returned it and got a new one. I've had this new device for almost a month now and it works flawlessly.

Thanks guys. I ended up getting a replacement. Take it for what it's worth, but the guy at Sprint said it was due to a busted SIM card reader.

When you get your replacement and, if they give you a new SIM card, make sure it's the same on in the phone that matches the one you have activated. Got my replacement and got perfect data in a 3g only area but when I went to a lte area that's decently strong it wouldn't switch over, turned out they never switched the SIM numbers to activate it. After that it's been smooth sailing so far. Hope your replacement works well.

My M8 has shown a few times on SC Pro (Verizon) and (uscelluar) while connected to Sprint. This has happened even when roaming is turned off. I wasn't roaming when this happened and has happened on EHRPD only and it's happened on more than one tower. Anyone else experience this?

I got my M8 unlocked and put in a SIM while in Austria. After a few reboots, I got it working in 3G where it means I get about 4mbit downloads. Anyway, periodically my data connection drops, so I toggle airplane mode. Here's question number one:

I need to enter a PIN for the SIM each time I do that. This PIN is needed to enable the SIM and is not something I set in settings. Is there an option of removing that prompt?

Did you have Sprint unlock it or did you SuperCID your phone?

I called Sprints international department and the guy there unlocked it from their side in a minute. Super easy.

    • Because you simply have to plug it in to a power outlet near a window. 
    • Except for a soft hand off to thw macro network. It can't do that, but other than that, there exactly the same. 
    • Because public WiFi has an ongoing maintance cost, plus the cost to set it up and properly isolate it from your network. The magic box is just easier. You aren't responsible for it. The magic box (via LTE) also has vastly superior QoS so that one person won't bog it down.

      My parents house is one place where a magic box works amazingly. Their only internet option is 3 mbps DSL. B26 only on phones, and that's upstairs only. The magic box latches on to b25 and provides 15-30 Mbps consistently. They actually use it now with a Sprint mobile broadband plan. For some people, the magic box is a better solution than an Airave or wifi calling (which won't work well on 3 mbps DSL if someone is using the internet). For businesses, it's a $0 cost, easy deployment to help customers. And they aren't responsible for what people do on it.

    • Because if you're not offering public WiFi, why would you go out of your way to set up a Magic Box??
    • I really don't see why it is that you think that if you don't have public wifi then you wouldn't use an MB. The MagicBox is a repeater for Sprint's network requiring essential zero exposure or expenditure for the retail provider beyond electricity. It is also zero maintenance or setup. It's a highly superior solution in my view.
