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...

That's been happening on my Note 2 lately no I don't have a G2 yet but I wanted to say that at least.

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?

    • Long time lurker here, long time SCP user.  FYI...  I'm the guy in the bar that had SC on his phone!  LOL First, I just wanted to thank you for this awesome tool.   Second, I do have an occasional freezing of the app on my Galaxy S20 Ultra.  It's usually when switching back and forth between the engineering screen to check CA, SCP, and the Speedtest app, to make sure it's still running.  I have to go in and force close it to get it to run again. Now for a question: how accurate is the distance from the tower in SCP?  I've had a few times that I can't figure out where it's picking up a tower, and now that I think about it, it could be a SC.  Since the S20 U is now on T-Mobile, there are no site notes for the towers, and I'm trying to figure out where they are!
    • So, I'm late to the party here.  Columbus, Ohio market.  I've had my S20 Ultra since a few days after launch (late pre-order) so I've been through the stuff mentioned through this thread.  My issue is 5G.  Before 5G was turned on, my speeds on T-Mobile were great!  Maybe a bit slower than Sprint in a speedtest, but latency was better, and it "felt" faster.  Then 5G was turned on, and I found out to check in the *#0011# service mode screen to see if n71 was working.  It was, I was happy.  Within a couple days, that totally changed.  It seemed that I rarely got n71, and data was SLOW, maybe 1/3 of the speed as before 5G was turned on.  When I do see n71, speeds are really good. For instance, 2 days ago, it was hitting n71 without active data transferring.  Then yesterday and today, not even a blip of n71 when actively transferring.  I found that switching the network mode to LTE/CDMA got my speeds back to good.  It seems that I must get a profile update push when not looking and it turns 5G back on, or if I have to restart and forget to reset it.   Is anyone else seeing this behavior?  
    • Just got off the phone with a Sprint Business rep. According to him the cell site nearest me is now running n41. Which explains why my LTE-41 speeds are a fraction of what they were a few months back. He mentioned a pretty awesome deal on an S20 if I sign a contract, with a $10 price increase per month in exchange for going from 3 GB of hotspot to 50 GB (which I've wanted anyway), so chances are good I'll bump up to the S20. Apparently it's still a Business Fusion plan so I don't have to pay $$$ extra per month for the phone either. Anyone heard of a $55/mo (or $75/mo) Business Fusion plan with 50GB of hotspot? Any video/VPN throttling to speak of there?
    • You can roam on HSPA now. It will use it if there's no Sprint CDMA and no Sprint and T-Mobile LTE (or if you force it with something like NSG). But T-mobile is shutting down HSPA at the end of 2021 I believe. They haven't added it to any of their new sites in a while. They really want to refarm the spectrum.
