  2. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I think you guys should get in contact with folks at essential since they are very receptive to user feedback. They have hosted multiple AMAs on Reddit.
  3. LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    The Pixel 2 XL also does SRLTE all the time. The big downside seems to be that SMS always uses CDMA again instead of using IMS. So long messages will be split, incoming ones are out of order (and delayed a minute or 2 sometimes), and sending takes a while. Otherwise, I suspect incoming calls will be more reliable.

  4. Technically Sprint has surpassed Tmobile in network quality just not actual coverage. But I’m hearing it’s also some LTE expansion in this. As both the CEO and COO have stated “cell sites in new areas” in some interviews. Don’t get me wrong extended LTE is cool. But it’s still roaming at the end of the day. I would rather them fill those extended LTE areas with native LTE. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I contacted the Sprint contact on Reddit who has been very helpful with solving these weird issues. Sometimes it takes a while to hear back but I have high hopes.
  6. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I tried to report it again to Sprint i got the same answer no reports and the one i thought made the report ticket they no have record of it. Sent from my PH-1 using Tapatalk
  7. Today
  8. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    No B41 here, just B25 or 3G.

    Get a vpn service, that fixes it temporarily until Sprint or essential do something. Sent from my PH-1 using Tapatalk
  10. I hope all the above. They really have their work cut out for them if they plan to do all of that next year. One thing I do want them to not do is to take the T-Mobile method and just slapping a panel or two up and calling it coverage. There are so many complaints from their users about the B12 rollout and how it was a rush job. By Sprint Adding all 3 bands on all towers alone will make them competitive, especially in rural areas and those users have another option to choose from. If Sprint can pull this network revamp off, they can easily surpas T-mobile in network quality. Sprint has the resources and spectrum to give the other 3 a run for their money. It's either put up or shut up now. I just hope John Saw makes this happen and fast. Time is against them with alot of it being lost due to putting their eggs in one basket thinking a merger was going to happen.
  11. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I'm having the same problem another user mention where there is no upload when connected to Clear B41 sites.
  12. Network Vision/LTE - Chicago Market

    Has anyone else noticed how horrible sprint service (data) has become on the CTA while underground? It never used to be an issue (even during rush hours) but now data virtually doesn't exist. I did notice if I turn off LTE I can get some data - but nothing like it used to be!
  13. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Have tried self activation twice and failed both times. Says to contact provider. But also did not copy any data from the Samsung G6 edge that I am trying to replace. Copied the apps but none of the data within the apps. Has anyone been successful with transferring content and data from another phone to their essential? Hmmmm, maybe I can return this one and do another after the 23rd to get the camera.
  14. LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    I'm really liking this phone so far. Normally I'd be unhappy about the non-removable battery, but considering the $120 price at Best Buy, I can just replace the whole phone instead when the time comes. (And I never replaced the battery in my G5 despite spending much more on it.) One question though. Ever since I got SCP installed, it's been in SRLTE. My G5 would only do SRLTE in very weak signal areas, but it seems like the G6 has been in constant SRLTE. Does this match the experience of others? (I'm not complaining, just curious.) I'm also seeing B41 more frequently at home than I used to. I'll have to see how it is out and about at some point. I'm assuming that's HPUE allowing it to maintain a B41 connection lower before the lack of uplink forces it to Band 25 or 26. - Trip
  15. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    I wasn't experiencing all of the bugs that everyone else was experiencing but a few bugs in certain apps that I use often convinced me to roll back to the latest official release yesterday night.
  16. Same here! Comparing sprints density to Verizons in El paso it's not even close. Verizon can shut off cdma anyday now .. sprint still lot of work to do Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  17. LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    I use speaker phone all the time. I haven't heard anyone mention poor audio quality on their end except when I'm in a bad coverage area. I got a software update notice yesterday to ZV9. It's still Android 7.0 but security patch date November 6th. The message only mentioned security updates but I noticed my signal bar is back to individual bars instead of a wedge. The update was around 500MB, I don't notice any other changes besides the security patch date and signal bar change. Sent from my LG-LS993 using Tapatalk
  18. Just to follow up, I had no problem getting it at the store yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised with how easily the process went, though it did take a while. - Trip
  19. Slight correction: T-Mobile blocked GWallet. Sprint was the only carrier that allowed it. Otherwise spot on. https://t.co/mgikXmSe4J

  20. I can't wait until LTE is dense enough to shutdown CDMA. VZW has all their PCS Spectrum in alot of areas on LTE now. I wish Sprint could do that but, can't Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  21. Ya I think I will start using calling plus more .. I just hope it doesn't cause more people to leave Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  22. It's been this way for a couple years for me, but getting worse. It can't really get worse than it is now unless Sprint adds more customers, since they've already thinned CDMA down to the minimum. The addition of calling plus and VoLTE will take load off of CDMA, so it should start to improve actually. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  23. I guess we will hit another rough patch in sprints network Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  24. Oh excellent!! That's a great sign. Although PCI 0 should show as Unknown.. [emoji848] -Mike
  25. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    saw that over on reddit a few weeks ago. I don't know how much I would ever use it but its seem cool to play around with for the first few hours you have it and then it just sits in a drawer. I haven't connected to a clear site with it yet but I will tomorrow morning. I'm just hoping I can at least connect to the clear site that covers my office. So far RF performance has been poor with it.
  26. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Got my phone last night and I love the build of it. Very solid heavy phone. My previous phones have been LG G2, Nexus 6, LG G4, and LG V20. Coming from LG phones I am very used to the power button being on the back and it being combined with the finger print reader on the later LG phones. From what I've seen LG is one of the only manufactures that does that. Im not sure why since its only natural to push the back maybe its just my habit. But it also allow you to only have the volume on the side of the phone so you don't hit the wrong buttons. This brings me to one of my dislikes about the Essential. If you are going to put the volume and power buttons near each other they should put some sort of texture on the power button. The nexus 6 had it like this. I can't tell you how many times already I've hit the wrong button on the side. Also I have to say the RF performance on this phone is the worst I've seen. Im getting 3G in many area where there is only GMO B25 sites. Also inside performance is on the edge of B25 and it tends to switch to B26 more often.

    You got the phone looks like this weekend sprint will offer a free 360 camera as well Sent from my PH-1 using Tapatalk
