WiMax and aps

I won an Epic 4G Touch.

 

Ive been wondering if its my phone, or some kind of general issue with wimax technology...

 

Basically, on some android aps, if Im using 4G, the app wont pull data. 4G will stay "sleeping". On 3G the app works, and some apps work on 4G, but not all.

 

Its a curious issue.

 

It's most apparent on a bus tracking app. On Wimax, it wont pull in the bus data feed to show me where the bus is. Have also had the issue with facebook where things wont load, and the 4G is "asleep".

 

Any thoughts?

I had the same problem with my epic 4g. Sometimes it would help to 'trick' it by switching to the browser which got it to stop sleeping then quickly switch back to the original app. I searched long and hard for a fix that would disable the sleeping mode to no avail. I'm sure though that if you root it you would have such an option. Good luck!

    • Some more interesting articles on Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/dish-wireless-bakes-core-principles-infrastructure-chua https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/dish-eyes-5g-network-reliability-vericas-chaos-engineering-platform    
    • Financially makes sense, but may put them far behind T-Mobile and Verizon 5g marketing.  Could put them up against Dish if Dish gets their act together and starts their public network in Las Vegas in late February.
    • Fiercewireless put out an article today.  Sounds like AT&T wont get heavily started until later this year when equipment will be more available that supports both 3.45GHz and C-Band.
    • They are using DSS on B5 here, on one carrier. LTE-only on the other AFAIK. I kinda hope AT&T doesn't turn DSS on in markets where dropping H+ bumps them from 5x5 for everything else to 10x10. They have 10x10 of B14 and 5x5-10x10 of B12 to throw users on, and with the delays to their C-Band deployment due to waiting for gear their network is effectively LTE-only in many areas despite an increasing proportion of 5G phones. The network was doing just fine without the extra B5 bandwidth, so not a whole lot of reason to basically go backwards when they said they're dropping 3G to expand 5G.
