    3G Shutdown

    I still see 3G in West Michigan almost daily on my commute between Lansing and Portland. It varies between EVDO and eHRPD, being they are the same, not sure why both get displayed at different times.

    Android P DP2

    Using Gestures and opening the list of running apps, causes running apps to show in the background of the lock screen or an app running.

    Android P DP2

    Anyone else jump on the DP2 release of Android P this week? Was very surprised to see the expanded device selection that the preview is available for. https://developer.android.com/preview/devices/ OG Pixel / XL Pixel 2 /XL Essential Nokia 7Plus Oppo R15 Pro Xperia XZ2 Vivo X21 / UD Issues I've found on my Pixel 2 XL so far... MS Apps don't work with InTune MDM configured Gestures are flakey Radio Switching between towers/data flow is odd

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Rather than a divestment, to ensure the new three carrier system, I'd rather see a requirement of 4G coverage matching the Blue/Red in 36 months and 5G that overlays 4G.
  5. Android P on Pixel 2 XL and SCP has remained consistent for me

    Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    Grabbed the DP2 Beta of Android P on the Pixel 2 XL and the oddity I've seen thus far is data throughput is strange. This very well could just be a coincidence, but bouncing between cell sites, seems to take forever for data to start flowing.
  7. If it was only just a few seconds and didn't hold, then I'm betting its actually SCP picking up Android cycling thru the bands or in the middle of a network change. I see Sprint on Tmobile frequencies all the time in West Michigan, but its only a few seconds during B25/B41 changes or dropping to EVDO.
  8. Hey Mike, will this new tightening on network monitoring impact SCP? https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/05/07/apps-android-p-will-no-longer-able-monitor-network-activity/ Apps on Android P will no longer be able to monitor your network activity
  9. I'm in rural west michigan where Sprint's coverage gets spotty at times. Many times I end up with false SCP logs showing TMobile connections. I have a few areas that I can hopefully latch onto a tmobile signal once roaming is working. I just attempted a PRL update, but still on 55069
  10. I had this texting my mom once. If I remember correctly, I did a reboot, PRL update, network services update, and a few airplane mode cycles. Then it started working again.

    Moto G6 etc Omnithread

    After my Moto X Pure Edition experience with software updates falling off the map, I think I'll be sticking to Google devices. At least I know what support I'm getting and for how long. My buddy is still using my Moto X Pure, so the hardware is good. Hopefully these can last for a couple cycles.

    Huawei Nexus 6P (was [Rumor] Huawei Nexus phone?)

    I've got a new Nexus 6p glass screen protector that I'll gladly mail to anyone who can use it. Just cover the shipping cost. It was a two pack, I only used one of them. Omotion from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014SL8BWU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1&tag=donations09-20 PM me if you'd like this.
