I was looking online and have not found any information regarding this although at this point it is likely that it is a non-issue for many people. I have 2 phones that were released around the time Sprint Spark was still being called that a Nexus 6 and LG Flex 2....late 2014, early 2015 timeframe. Now that Sprint Spark is LTE+ do these phones still pick up Band 41 like they normally do ?

 

I have the MSL and can change the band priority. I noticed on the LG Flex 2 Band 25 was #1 and Band 41 was #2.

 

I can swap them to make Band 41 #1 instead. I have been using signal check and it appears that the LG Flex 2 which is rooted and modded is primarily picking up Band 25 and not 41. Before in the past it had this little sun spinning logo in the status bar. Admittedly I've only begun using this yesterday, but I haven't seen Band 41 the times I have checked signal check. Was not sure if the 2 phones will only take 25, 26 and 3G now ?

Sprint Spark is the name they gave to B41 when it first started rolling out. It confused people because the spinning start would show up whenever you were connected to LTE, rather than when only connected to B41. LTE Plus replaced the Sprint Spark name as 2xCA was rolled out. B41 still exists, and any B41 device released at any point will still be able to connect.

    • Friday morning I called support again.  After a 15 minute call, the final resolution was "you do not have Extended LTE because you have exceeded your 100mb roaming limit."  I knew this was the wrong answer, so i decided to make a nuisance of myself. I continued to call customer support over the next half of the day whenever I had the chance. I was always presented with either the "exceeded roaming limit" answer or I was told "there was a tower down" and that I should call back in about a week. I was always polite and patient, and I feel I educated several reps as to what Extended LTE is because most seemed to have no idea. I must have called a dozen times. Then Friday afternoon I received a call from someone at the OKC support center, asking what the problem was. They called me!  Now this was different i thought to myself.   I explained that none of my lines were no longer connecting to Extended LTE, specifically B12 via Appalachian wireless on any of their towers (this was what I had been telling support reps all day). She said "That's strange. Let me send this upstairs, and I will call you back when I find something out." Upstairs?  They have an upstairs!? This was great! Within 2 hours all of my lines had Extended LTE again. Problem solved. However I have no idea what the problem was.  Moral of the story: If you do not get resolution on a support issue, call support repeatedly until someone that doesn't have to follow a script notices you?
