I gotcha buddy.I;m in no way trying to say anything I don't know about. Just when you've gotten LTE on your commute, in belle chasse at work, and in other locations your use to getting it, and now not getting it and even the 3g is kinda wonky, you just wonder whats up. . Will just wait it out I guess . Thanks

I have the same issues as you. Do yourself a favor and download Network (Philipp Mangelow) from the play store. It will get you quickly to the screen where you put your phone into LTE only mode. This will force LTE connection but disable all calls and texts. After you do this, dial ##33284# and then go to LTE Engineering. This will show you the LTE Band you are connected to. Take note of every area that you are connecting to Band 26 so you know where you will always lose the connection. Also take note of where you are connecting to Band 25 so you know where you can reconnect by toggling Airplane mode. I have done this for the past few days and have it down to a science. Or you can just do what Sprint keeps suggesting I do, put the phone into CDMA only mode... Because 3G data is so reliable here.....

The New Orleans folks should coin a new term to add to the many they already did, Ericsson hoops ;)

Being in front of that tower helps.

Where I work at it depends on where I'm at on the property on what speeds I get. Where I'm at now I'll get 1 mb down. When I'm in the back where I see that tower I get from 15 - 20.

Yup they seem to have added the necessary software patch to the active B26 towers, unfortunately my phone still seems to prefer Band 25 until it goes to about -110, only then will it switch over to Band 26.

So a year after my last post I am posting I have found a B41 site in Metairie. It was just random that I was running a Speedtest at the Mellow Mushroom on Vets when I go close to 30Mbps down and 8Mbps up. Knowing Sprint's current LTE in Nola couldn't even come close to those speeds I had to see what I was on and sure enough there was a B41 tower! Screenshot_2015-04-29-19-51-04.png

He wouldn't care unless it was Baton Rouge, on every site and they started infilling with new sites in between too.  And I wouldn't blame him.

Still have my email notifications on this thread I see :)  Yes, it would take a bit of work to swing back the yellow side.  I still keep an eye on the Nextel sites around town to see if they are making a move yet.  The kicker for me is still the downtown area is a Sprint wasteland combined with the no coverage inside the house.  However I did notice they finally converted to a full build by the house instead of the LTE GMO configuration.  I didn't see any 800 signals from it yet though.

New to the site here. Doesn't look like much has been going on around here lately.

Most members from this market has long left due to sprints network quality so thus there's little to no talk here in this thread anymore.

I'm sure I'm late to the party but I came across this today. Pardon me if this has been shown elsewhere already. I don't visit the site everyday fcdabbe6ae6a3f0bdb6fa30861dc2eb0.jpg2cf39387705b7e5ff53ffc8e17fc1d3f.jpg

    • Something else I forgot to mention, the V40 is enabled for calling plus on LTE and wifi, and it has been working very well so far. I usually keep it disabled for WiFi, since my WiFi is a bit weak in some parts of my house.
    • A little anecdotal note on radio performance. I am currently a location with known poor coverage. We have 3 new phones - iPhone XS, XS Max, and LG V40. The iPhones are having no trouble picking up a usable LTE signal inside, but the V40 only connects to 3G unless I go outside, and the data is barely usable. It is band 26 LTE (800MHz) based on Signal Check on the V40 when I go outside and pick up the LTE signal. Actually now that I think about it, the V40 is probably on 1xrtt inside, not 3G, because Signal Check is showing 800 for both CDMA and LTE.
    • I second the LG V30+. I've had mine for over a year now, and I'm very pleased with the RF performance. I too live in a somewhat rural area, and also travel quite a bit, and I haven't been disappointed at all. RF performance is high on my list of must-haves when shopping for a new phone. The V30+ also makes use of all the current network technologies offered by Sprint, as far as I know. I haven't been able to test out VoLTE yet (not live in my home area), but it's on the compatibility list. I haven't been shopping, but I have seen the V30+ offered at very good prices recently.
    • Yeah it is. East of Sacramento

    • Is this in Cali? The T-Mo roaming is great news, but it would be nice to confirm that USCC roaming is still working on the Pixel devices.
