LTE Voice and data


Recommended Posts

I was finally enjoying some sweet fantastic LTE speeds at work today and had my Galaxy tab tethered to my Galaxy Nexus when I got a phone call. On my old Epic this use to make my data connection drop out, but, wonders of all wonders! I continued to surf the web, with no apparent drop in speed as I conducted my phone call! I remember reading that this might be possible, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it was, indeed, a fact.

Yes the galaxy nexus can only do voice and data at the same time but only while on lte. The lg viper, evo lte, and gs3 can do the same but they can also do voice and data over 3g as well.

I'm actually kind of surprised at your being unable to use WiMAX and voice at the same time previously, if this is indeed what you're talking about.

 

P.S. You should remove your phone number from your phones/devices profile listing. Not a good place to put that!

Unless he never experienced wimax on his epic.

I used simultaneous voice and WiMax on my E4GT and EVO. Just not simultaneous voice and 3G.

On my OG Evo I can talk and surf at the same time when I am on Wimax

Phone calls? Do people still make phone calls? Those are like so 2008.

I finally got my girl onto a smart phone last Christmas, so trust me, phone calls still happen.

You won the battle but lost the war. You are supposed to get her onto a smartphone so that you can get away from the phone calls to more manageable, multimodal forms of communication.

 

:P

Girls like talking on the phone just to 'hear your voice' and I do not see that trend ending soon. (They are also sometimes paranoid that you are at a club dancing with other girls & want to call to make sure your not... but that is a separate problem called CRAZY, lol.)

That'll get you killed pretty quickly buddy.

When the first three letters of your name are Dev, you need a nexus device... lol

That sounds like a good test case for the superior ambient noise cancellation ability of the EVO LTE.

Seriously that was not the reason I had asked about the quality of HD voice in the other thread, but it would be a good benefit. Robert should test voice quality in noisy environments since he has all the phones, lol

Good old reliable stalking takes care of that for most women. The more tech savvy just use the Find My Boyfriend app.

Pretty soon there will be an app that will turn on the front facing camera or something... For the tech savvy paranoid woman.

    • Confirmed on my way to work this morning and while out on lunch that the only Sprint sites I connected to were keep sites. All others seem to now be offline at least around Louisville and Shepherdsville KY. 
    • It is pretty easy to use, once you get the hang of it. For example, to select a specific LTE Band(s) Click on [7] --Clear selected bands Click on [5] LTE Band Preferences Click on the specific band(s) you want to enable.  Click on [F] Go Main Click on [9] --Apply band configuration The same holds for NR5G, just you would click on [5] NR5G Band preferences instead of [5] LTE Band Preferences To re-enable all bands: Click on [8] --Select all bands Click on [9] --Apply band configuration  
    • Got the Android 12 based upgrade today with May 2022 security.  They now have favorites in contacts. Have not yet figured out how to get rid of the google/T-Mobile screen. Wall paper changes.
    • 25/26 are still on here, though the site historically nearest me has been decom'd. I did have to cycle to B26 and then B25 to get my phone to lock on, as going directly to B25 landed me on AT&T MFBI. Will be interesting to see how long 25/26 stay on; it's hard to connect to Sprint B41 here as there's plenty of T-Mobile B41 on n41 sites.
    • Looks like the remaining Sprint network might be dead here now. Forcing my phone to B25 or B26 gives me no network, sad day for sure.
