I just restored it. I'm still not sure if it's working ... still says 1X instead of 800.

 

Before I restored it though I backed everything up on HTC Sync and then restored from that - maybe that was a mistake.

Is there a different way to do a factory reset aside from the "Backup and Reset" option in settings?? Would it do anything different? I'm afraid I broke the tri-band ness of my phone!! ????????????

Download the RUU for the phone and flash it.

Will that fix this problem?

Without knowing exactly what you did I can't say for sure. But if its software related that's the best you can do as far as reverting back to stock. Its like flashing the factory image on a nexus device.

I messed around with the band select menu in the 4636 hidden testing menu... Now I don't seem to get 1x800 and my LTE priority space is blank.

When I try to launch the band selection on my nexus it crashes so I can't see exactly what that was. I vaguely remember using that on my evo LTE to force the phone on secondary 800 but I do remember being able to change the setting back to stock with no issue. I would try the RUU if I were in your shoes, just keep in mind it will wipe everything including data on the phone.

I already did an HTC Backup so I'm fine with that. Although if that is backed up that is part of the problem. But I can live with that if it's fixed!

Its been a while since I've used the back up utility in HTC sync but I doubt it backs that up. Glancing through HTCs website I couldn't find where they have the updates listed but it looks like it has been changed a lot since I last used a HTC phone. You may want to try contacting their customer service to download it, or grab it from XDA if you are comfortable with that.

Reset your phone using ##786# code, you will also need your msl to complete the process.

I did that. I still thought all hope was lost because I wasn't connecting to 1x800 where I normally have been, but I just walked around the building at work and it switched from B25 to B26 seamlessly back and forth. So I guess it's not bricked!

 

I wonder if a recent PRL update changed the 1x800 status? I figured we were done with stuff like that. that's the only thing I can think of, because my EVO LTE still picks up 1x800 at home where this wasn't.

The only place online I could find the RUU didn't unzip once I downloaded it. Is there really no other way to fix this problem?! It only seems to affect voice.

You could try going to a Sprint service and repair store and ask them to re load the software on your phone.

The band selection in that menu is probably only for CDMA, which would make sense why you aren't able to connect to pcs and smr at the same time.

...now all of a sudden I just went into the regular settings page and changed from LTE/CDMA to CDMA Only and back again and now it's working fine .... Who knows what I did but glad!!!

I just got a dot view case I ordered from Amazon for about $11. It doesn't work! Although for that price I wasn't expecting a whole lot!

So my Sister and Brother in law just switched to Sprint to from AT&T, he got a Nexus 6 and she got a HTC One E8. His phone is perfect everything works as it should but she came home and she is getting a "4g services are unavailable as the sim/uicc is invalid". When that happens the LTE turns off and she is stuck on 3G, popping the sim out and back in works temporarily but it's not a solution. She called Sprint and they did their thing and still nothing they said go back to the store. Is this a common problem with HTC phones? Any help would be appreciated in this manner.

I haven't ever had an issue with my HTC devices. Has Sprint tried giving a new Sim card or tried giving a new phone if the issue continued. Has she did a profile update as that may help because when I first got my One Max it wanted me to do a PRL and Profile update before it could be used on 4g.

Have you tried dialing ##72786#? I think that code should work for the E8, it resets the connection settings and reruns the activation in case something went wrong during the initial setup.

Yeah did that and pretty much everything else sadly.

I've had SIM card issues before on Sprint, AT&T and Verizon. You have to swap the SIM card and usually the problem goes away.

Finally got Lollipop today! Really posses me off that it was more than 3 months after the M8, especially since it is the same phone inside.

 

So far I'm loving it, but testing notifications are weird. using stock messenger app. I thought the text would appear at the top of the screen, but it doesn't. Just the icon in the status bar. Setting I can change somewhere?

      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      The 850 MHz LTE Sprint network is so congested in De Soto MO. I also have proof on my SDR Radio.
       My SDR Radio can only show 1.920 MHz of the 5 MHz wide LTE Signal.

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

      I notice a lot of post regarding the markets in IL,FL,TX,PA,NYC.... but how about about the Los Angeles market? I THINK it was samsung doing the set up for the L.A market? Not sure though.... I'm not a sponsor member of the site so I can't really check... if I had a job I'd most definitely donate!
       
      Couple of months ago the local towers were all down and being upgraded to NV I assume since Larry from Howard forums said there was NV work being done my zip code. The speeds were better for a bit but now they are awful again.
       
      Can anyone (most preferred Robert) make a comment on if there is any LTE activity near 90255 area code?
       
      Thanks, great site by the way... I'm a Lurker.

    • I've had my Unlocked Coral Blue GS8+ since end of July and it's still going strong.  No software issues or weird shenanigans.  I attribute a lot of that to being on the Unlocked 955U1 firmware.  I still kept my 935U Galaxy S7 Edge and it too is going strong on the Unlocked firmware.   I think most of these issues are coming from Sprint messing with the ROM too much with their bloat and other crap. The only issue I've had so far was when Google updated their Google app, my battery began to drain a lot faster - ~5%/hr instead of the normal ~2%/hr.  A simple reboot took care of that.  Google is still my NUMBER ONE enemy for battery life.  I"m hoping Oreo will take care of Google.
    • FFS.      Now the power supply for our MB has seemingly failed.  When I first plugged it in, I thought the power supply seemed overly ‘noisy’ in that it made a constant hiss/buzz.  Woke up this morning to 2 bars of 1x, and the MB indicated it needed to be plugged in.  Receptacle tested fine.  Power Supply no longer makes any noise and smells a little suspect so Sprint is sending a replacement.  
    • you should get the phone! it has a amazing camera and the battery life ins phenominal!
    • I'm thinking they've closed off residential requests for now until they fill some of the orders. I know the link is around here somewhere, Google Sprint magic box, or try sprint.com/magicbox Currently, last I heard, it was business only...
