I am not having that problem, just tested it to be sure. The file is received as a JPEG.

Yes if I send it to myself it works fine. But if I send it to someone else, it shows up as a video. Actually I googled this issue and found this is a common problem on Samsung/Android phones.

I tested between two different Sprint devices (GS3 & Photon) and the images were not video clips.

I haven't received it either. I'm wondering if they are only pushing it out to launched markets? Or maybe just starting with launched markets first.

From what I understand, the OTA rollouts are random. I have seen reports from users on other forums who got the LG8 but are not in a launched LTE market. The update does include other stuff besides the "optimized LTE system selection."

 

BTW, I have finally joined the ranks of GS3 owners waiting for LTE. I received and activated my 32GB model last night. It updated OTA in two cycles, bringing the version up to LG2. If I get the LG8 update pushed to me in the next couple of days I will refuse it because I already have the update.zip downloaded and prefer to apply it manually. My plan is to do that at the beginning of my field trip to Waco, because I want to see a before-and-after on the signal-strength reporting between LG2 and LG8 when I first get into LTE territory. Then I will update to LG8 for the main body of testing.

 

Robert, is the screen you call the "LTE engineering screen" to show LTE signal strength just the Settings -> About Device -> Status screen, or is there another path to the screen you have described? EDIT: Never mind. I just found it under the DATA menu tree..

It's in ##DEBUG#, using your phone dialer.

Thx. I bypassed the dialer and launched from a shortcut to the hidden menu, using the Quick Shortcut Maker app.

I have one I created using Anycut. I have shortcuts to all my frequently used dialer functions.

strange. i can get into the ##3282# with my MSL but can't access the ##debug# as it tells me that my lock code is invalid. did Sammy or Sprint somehow create two entirely different MSL's per device?

 

UPDATE: Nevermind.... I needed the standard debug code of 777468 to unlock the debug menu. Definitely not my MSL

I got the LG8 update the first day. I wonder what criteria they use. I got my 32G from ordering from the Sprint Online site.

No LG8 update here... I'm guessing our updates will arrive in the order of which LTE NV rolls out?

I'm pretty sure it's just random.
