LG G2 Users Thread!

Recommended Posts

Can you tell me if my replacement phone would be brand new? In the tech support Corp store, they had one shipped and it's gonna be here tomorrow, but the only details I have are this:

Model Name: CPO LG LS980 LTE WH XCVER SNGL WITH SIM

And a serial number, plus SIM serial I think. Can't tell if that's new in box or if they even have refurb unless it's insurance related...I'm anxious over getting it.

With the device being so new, and not very popular among the average consumer, I would assume they would send out a new one. But, once again, just an assumption. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

CPO - Certified Pre-Owned... It's refurbished.

 

That being said, because of how new the model is, the phone was likely a 14-day return from someone who didn't like the phone or service. Most of these aren't phones that had issues, but they can't be sold as new anymore, so they are send out as refurbished after being put into a new casing.

It might say cpo but you can check in the ##786# menu and it will tell you if it's reconditioned or not.

I know this will not make you feel better as I know it would not make me feel better either. But, when I first bought my original Samsung Epic 4G. I literally went through 5 Epic 4Gs with the same buzzing earpiece issue. The first 4, I demanded a new one each time. The fifth one, I was tired of the fighting and they sent me a refurbished one and the refurbished one was finally the one I kept for 3+ years as it was perfect.

Could be a from but it does look legit. I find it odd that it doesnt look more like the g flex icons though since its newer

I see some of the comments saying the G2 will never receive the KitKat update. What do you guys think?

Aj ^^^ i may be young but i remember watching that when i was little. Any way, that kit kat video was neat. I kinda like the grayed out notification bar, but either way id like the spark update even though im not anywhere near a spark area maybe ill have better signal in general.

Per a Sprint employee(supposedly) on XDA, update for Spark scheduled for next 1/24.

Maybe an employee here can confirm.

Is there an echo in here? That was mentioned last night, a few posts before yours.. but it is big news if someone can corroborate it.

Got my G2 in today, and on the rtn menu it does show it's refurb. Also got an email with my msl included when I used Sprint.com to activate..don't even have to call and ask for msl now. And speaker problem is gone, although the timing is bad ...now that I can use my phone, I can't talk on it because I had ten extractions Monday and my mouth is...beyond sore!!

One question, having manualy enabled the other two bands will it mess something up once the spark update cones out? Thanks, also ill report if i see any lte other than 1900mhz. Who knows haha

So you bought a new LG G2 on contract and you got a refurb version in the mail?  Wow that sucks.  I would exchange and complain to them that it is a refurb.

According to a Sprint employee, the G2 Spark update should begin being pushed out on Fri, 1/24. Hopefully this holds true and the Spark firmware update is the ZVA firmware version.

No, he said he sent his back for the earpiece problem.. refurb was shipped as replacement. Who knows, as someone else mentioned earlier, perhaps you are better off with a refurbished device. It might have gotten the extra attention needed to ensure there were no issues--like the earpiece problem.

Is it only if you claim insurance that they send you a refurb phone?  So I guess if you are just exchanging it within your first 14 days then they are suppose to give you a new one.

Y'all have more serious issues to deal with now... Apparently the G2 now suffers from post echoing. I seriously hope that LG addresses it on 1/24 with the Spark update. I just read about it on XDA. Any Sprint employee care to confirm?

I believe that someone had previously explained elsewhere that once you were outside the initial 14-day return period, you are not guaranteed to receive a brand new device no matter what avenue you are exchanging it through.

    • I accidentally broke the Samsung menus when I compiled the latest release; it will be resolved in next update.   Thanks, I'll look into that.. it's all a work in progress, glad we are making some headway!   The current display format is temporary, it is just to get the data displaying reliably.. once that happens, it will get its own "block" like the connection other technologies have.
    • I forgot to post this this morning. Seems that Sprint will offer the V60. My buddy at Sprint HQ says more will be said Monday. Lets see if this pans out.   TS out
    • Another suggestion, can you place the 5G info above the neighbor cell list? In dense urban areas with 5x CA there will easily be enough neighbor cells to push the 5G info off the screen. Sent from my SM-G988U using Tapatalk
    • I did notice that the NR info sticks when I don't have an NR connection. Sent from my SM-G988U using Tapatalk
    • Its working on both phones, I sent a couple mode diagnostic reports. I dont see the band selector shortcut anymore though. I'm not seeing the accent color on either phone but I do have the option set to show it. Sent from my SM-G988U using Tapatalk
