  1. In between the CCA roaming agreements, KS and NE had some roaming on Verizon. Most areas are now covered by a combination of USCC, NexTech and Pioneer. There might be a few spots in far NW Nebraska that still roam on Verizon, but I would say 98-99% of KS is covered by a extended network partner.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Sprint has ~120MHz of B41 in most large markets, some have slightly more. ~200MHz might be the total amount of spectrum (800/1900/2500) in their best markets.

    Owned the G series since the G3 and have not once experienced a boot loop issue. Just bought a G7 "new in box" off eBay for $450.

    His quotes never make sense.

    LG G5 User Thread (LG-LS992)

    I still have mine as back up. Powered it up to make sure it works. My G6 Bluetooth isn't working and vibration stopped so I'm considering sending it in, and using the G5 in the interim.

    Everything else works great! Ha

    It's a known issue that LG's engineering screens get stuck, but this is pushing it to the extreme here. My best guess is the engineering screen is in error, SCP is almost always correct when it comes to band identification.

    Another user also sent me screen shots from Chicago. I do have a concern about the LTE Engineering screen. I'm wondering if it's not getting stuck, because according to SCP, he was on B41 the entire time, despite the engineering screen saying B25. Also, the PLMM on his screen was wrong, it showed a Clear PLMN while also saying B25. I'm thinking that perhaps the PCC is getting stuck and not accurately displaying information, leading to false 25+41+41 reports.
  9. I don't think they'll be bothered by voice or text usage. It's all about data now. And as long as you're not using hundreds of GBs, you probably won't draw any attention, and then as you said it won't be an issue after you move.
  10. USCC usage is counted as native, there are no caps or limits, other than what is already included in your plan. If you're solely using USCC, your account could be flagged, but as long as it's not the majority of your usage, I don't think you'll encounter any issues.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    I'm sure there will be some that have to be replaced. Especially any that are probably around two years old or older. But they mentioned that they expected to have some sort of replacement program or at least heavy discount for those that are forced into a new phone.

    The merging of networks shouldn't be a big pain. They largely overlap, and where they don't those sites will not be going anywhere. With most recent phones supporting the majority of LTE bands offered by both carriers, you probably won't see much in the way of service disruptions, especially with VoLTE and SMS going over LTE as well. I'm not entirely sure how billing will go, but assuming plans don't get touched during the transition, I don't see it being a huge hassle.

    Google voice integration going away June 1st

    No recent updates that I noticed. Version is 3.3.044 also. If you tap the menu button, is there a "Messages for web" option?

    I didn't know they had been working on it til I got the notification.

    Can you grab a screenshot of 25+41+41? Just want to see it in action! I didn't know that was live on the network yet. Glad the phone is working well! Might have to bite the bullet and get one soon haha. Probably looking at the $200 off Best Buy deal. Don't have two lines that want one on my account right now to to get buy one get one deal from Sprint.

    Google voice integration going away June 1st

    This doesn't replace all the features of Google Voice, but just discovered that Android Messages now supports messaging on the computer. Got a notification in Messages today prompting me to go to messages(dot)android(dot)com and it'll have you scan a QR code, then connects your messages app to Chrome.

    Haven't gotten it yet but looking at it closely.
  18. Yeah that post wasn't needed and I have no idea where you're getting your "trash" idea... he didn't post anything about that.
  19. That may be clear to you, but not everyone else. I maintain my request.
  20. You need to write 4xCA or 4CA or something like that to make it clear what you are talking about.

    3G Shutdown

    Question on how you verified this? Did you ever drop LTE? If so, you only saw 1x when not on LTE? Shutting down EVDO completely (many sites running one carrier) doesn't really give that much more room for LTE.
  22. There is a small problem now with B41 protection sites now showing as normal LTE coverage though. This could also be misleading, making it look like there is full coverage where there is not (see Marquette discussion above).
  23. It's one site. Quite possibly the old Clearwire protection site converted to B41. There is partner 3G and LTE roaming in the area, so the likelihood of a full build out in the near term is pretty low. I'm actually quite surprised they added it to the coverage map. I'm not sure they meant to since as far as we know, that site is only producing B41 coverage, no CDMA, EVDO or B25/26 LTE.
  24. Except not really. Those are B41 protection sites that originally did not show on the normal coverage map, only on a separate LTE Plus only layer.
  25. This is probably going to be a good candidate for the new 16 port antennas. It would seem the site doesn't support more than one antenna per sector, and that would be a good solution to get B41 up to 8T8R, and supporting more than 2 B41 carriers.
