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?

    • Yeah VoLTE took forever on Airave 4s, but it's definitely working now. Supposedly it was enabled months ago, but not necessarily for existing devices (only new ones). I had to factory reset mine to get it back in the queue, but after 2.5 weeks it got it. My Magic Box with wired backhaul, on the other hand, got it only 3 days after a factory reset. It seems that a lot of femtos setup before VoLTE launched never got put back in the queue (particularly femtos using WiFi or Ethernet backhaul), hence the necessary factory reset. I'm not sure if an Airave 4 would offer substantial coverage improvement over the Pebble, other than having CDMA as a fallback. If you need to cover a larger area, you can use both actually. They should handoff to one another with VoLTE, just keep them sufficiently far apart to minimize interference. And you'll probably have to tell Sprint it's for use at a different address, but they won't actually check where it's deployed. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Do it quickly.  My impression is T-Mobile really wants to move people to their network ASAP, even if it causes lots of pain. August 1 is rumored to be the end of Sprint retail.
    • I'm trying to switch over to the Airave 4 now that the've enable VoLTE on them. That should fix this problem. The only reason I got the Pebble over the AR4 is because VoLTE wasn't enable on it yet.
    • My router typically only gets rebooted for firmware updates or major functionality changes that I have implemented. Otherwise stays up for years.  Last time it was down is when Hurricane Ike remnants hit Ohio in 2008 and caused week long power outages, which killed local internet in a few days (I have two ISPs, UPSes, generator).  ISP's battery backups and generator use had improved considerably since that time. Making changes appears to be the greatest reason for router instability. So put internet connections on a UPS,  reboot after major changes, and otherwise enjoy.
    • It’s been a while since I’ve posted here since I’ve switched away from Sprint but I happened upon your thread while researching an upgrade to my Rural Internet Setup and I thought you might be able to help some   I currently have a MoFi 4500 with two 35ft long LMR400 cables going from inside my cabin up to two panel antennas on the roof https://imgur.com/a/NpOjzwM   It’s working ok but I think I’m missing out on a lot of bandwidth since bands 14 and 66 have been added to the area and I could get better signal with a modem mounted behind the antennas (eliminating a lot of line loss).   I’ve been looking at mounting a Telit LM960 or Quectel EM20 in a panel behind the antennas outside along with a Golden Orb compatible router powered by POE and adding another pair of antennas for 4x4 MIMO.   Since you’ve tested both the EM20 and the LM960, which do you prefer? It appears the LM960 actually has better CA combinations for AT&T’s network even though it’s theoretically not as high level of LTE technology category as the Quectel.   It appears to me most of the higher order carrier aggregation on the Quectel is with CBRS or LTE unlicensed which I don’t think I’ll ever see in this rural Edge of Cell area.   Also does it appear to you that having these installed outside would be a reliability issue? It gets really hot here in the summers with plenty of severe weather and it can be cold in Winters. The LM960 at least appears to have a pretty broad operating temperature range.   Any advice is appreciated, thanks!     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
