Another Sprint employee from Android Central states that 4G connection drops on band 25, and requires manual airplane cycling to enable it again.  Any input on this?  He said the LG rep was aware of the issue.

When you have a chance to activate it, can you verify if manually enabling B26 and B41 through MSL code sticks and allows us to use B26 and B41 LTE?  I am sure everyone is interested in this.  This way we can get an answer and put this question to bed.

I don't live in a BC41 area, so I can't test it. It says "band disabled" in the ##DATA# menu after activation, but it's easy to enable if you have your MSL.

That just sounds like normal 4G LTE scanning issues, but no, I haven't heard anything like this, nor experienced it. I was going to look it up in some of our internal systems and see, but the SKU doesn't even exist for Service and Repair yet...

It sticks after a reboot.

I just want to state that all of y'all who have the G2 now suck and I hate all of y'all. With that said, that's pretty sweet. I also heard there were issues with LTE disconnecting and being unable to reconnect.

 

Other than that, how is it? I'd like to see some with cases on to see how they look.

Once you start using it more, let us know how the radios compare to other devices you've used.

 

Thanks!

Well, when will we be seeing a full spread of engineering screen porn?  Start with the usual suspects:  ##DEBUG# and *#*#INFO#*#*.  In this case, 1080p screenshots are fine if you do not have time to resize them.

So, LG's skin is ugly. But we knew this.

 

Just installed Signalcheck Pro, Nova Launcher, and Swiftkey. Much better.

 

@AJ: Screens incoming.

How is signal strength compared to other Sprint phones? I know you just got it, so can not tell yet, but when you get a feel for reception compared to other Sprint phones, please let us know.

AJ, why am I "not allowed to use that image extension on this community."? Just uploaded a series of PNGs to imgur, and they won't post.

 

Anyways, here's the gallery:

<snipped because I'm silly>

As you can see *#*#INFO#*#* doesn't work. Launching it through SignalCheck Pro gives that error.

Hmm, so the phone info screen is there in the background, but something is blocking access to it.  That is roughly what I was expecting, as I could never get *#*#INFO#*#* to work with the Optimus G.

 

The benefit of the phone info screen is that a menu contained within can allow you to set the radio stack to LTE only, LTE/CDMA1X only, etc.  Since the screen does appear in the background, I imagine that a workaround can be found.

This would be amazing as I have a tmobile micro sim.

Is there any way for you to find out if the Sprint LG G2 is factory unlocked like the Verizon model for domestic sim cards?

Couple questions... what band priority combinations can you set?  and does Signal Check pro show the PCI and/or GCI for LTE connection?  Also awaiting the ##DEBUG# screen shots as well to see what LTE info is shown too.

 

If you can't figure out the screenies I'm sure you could email them to me and I'll resize them and post.

Is the band priority screen accessed via ##DATA#?

 

AJ

 

Yes!!! It is on the same page where you enable/disable all the LTE bands as shown below.

The engineering screens appear to be the same as in the Optimus G. No big surprises there.

Band Priority is editable, with your MSL. You can set a band to "high" or "low" priority, and it goes from there.

 

LTE info will have to wait until I'm home and actually in an LTE area for longer than a few minutes at a time.

Awesome...so you could say set B41 as high, B26 as high, and B25 as low to get away from any dead PCS LTE channels?

    • One thing that I've learned over the weekend is that T-Mobile devices in will roam on Verizon LTE when they leave native coverage. It's a really interesting choice given that Sprint chose to roam on AT&T LTE as opposed to Verizon. Part of me thinks that the reason why they chose Verizon over AT&T is that the coverage gap between AT&T and T-Mobile is a lot smaller than the coverage gap between Verizon and T-Mobile.
    • Sprint has updated its VoLTE Page as a result of the merger: https://www.sprint.com/en/shop/services/volte.html Support for additional devices has been listed. A couple of things I noticed: “By enabling VoLTE, you will get access to expanded coverage on the T-Mobile network with capable devices.” and this change to Wi-Fi Calling: How does VoLTE work with Wi-Fi Calling? Wi-Fi Calls will transfer to VoLTE when Wi-Fi coverage becomes poor and VoLTE is available. For this automated transfer to take place, VoLTE must be turned “ON”. Starting in April 2020, Sprint is updating most VoLTE-capable devices to prefer Cellular networks over Wi-Fi Networks. This means that if your device has Wi-Fi Calling enabled, it will only be used if the cellular coverage in your area is poor. If you are on an active call using VoLTE and the coverage does decline, the call will attempt to transfer from VoLTE to Wi-Fi when the device is connected to a strong Wi-Fi signal.    
    • Yes indeed, it resolved my issue.
    • Samsung bandwidth selection app still works?
    • Btw new update is out! With security finally updated! Also, camera improvements, autofocus is much better now, on top of that, a couple of tweaks within the camera app.  Very nice update.
