I thought this was interesting' date=' does anyone know if Sprint has any intention of implementing the RCS standard on their LTE network as well?

I must be getting old. I read the article and I don't get it. What does it do? It sounds like it is redundant and not innovative at all. Am I missing something?

I read the article and even watched the Youtube video with that horrible song and I must agree with Robert. I didn't see anything particularly innovative and groundbreaking there. Perhaps it'll be a big deal to MetroPCS customers though since they largely skipped over EVDO causing the majority of their network to be stuck on 1x until they started deploying LTE.

It's an international GSMA accredited standard that is looking to make the following things interoperable like SMS and MMS:

    • What devices should do, and what they actually do, are two very different things! As you've probably heard me mention countless times, many of those screens get information in a proprietary manner directly from the modem; apps like SignalCheck can only get what the OS is reporting. I did find your earlier reports, and as I guessed, the OS was reporting valid signal strength. I will try to figure out a solution.
    • Service mode shows the SIM as having no service, so I would think the device should report that. I believe I sent a diagnostic report a little while back—can you check to see if you have it?
    • Interesting, that doesn't happen on my P7. Can you send me a diagnostic report the next time you see that please? Hopefully the phone isn't actually reporting the -115, that will be tricky.
    • Hey Mike—another dual SIM bug. If one SIM loses service, it doesn’t disappear from the app.  I’ve seen this a couple times—my Dish SIM will lose service (confirmed in service mode), but SCP won’t stop displaying -115 or so. And it logs a data point at that signal every time the location updates.  Along the same lines, I have a custom trigger set up for 313340 (Dish), and the custom trigger keeps firing when this is happening.
