LG G2 Users Thread!

Recommended Posts

So, if the rumors are true, in roughly 48 hours we should have Sprint Spark. :) I sure hope so. My moms S3 gets 2 bars of LTE in my house, when I get none. It is a brand new tower, so I feel like it is the CSFB issue.

I don't remember anyone posting one for the last update the G2 got. Also I no tech place on the internet even acknowledged the update.

It's all over XDA. Most of the ROMs were updated within a week of receiving V8 OTA.

So, as I heard they will be sending the update out in waves, will they do the same order again? Or maybe different? Because I got my update 5 days after my dad and brother did. It really upset me... :(

OTAs for all Android devices (except HTC - see here) are completely random, no matter what wireless provider is involved. It is done that way to keep the load balanced on their servers. If you can't wait for your turn, it will probably be available for download from sites like XDA shortly after the rollout begins.

Do you have band 41 active? If so it loves to jump.

I don't, I turned off the other two bands just incase there would be an issue once the Spark update rolls out. Oddly, the last few days I have been without eHRPD and my LTE signal holds on like crazy. I've seen as low as -138 dBm quite a few times. I've also had it where it won't switch to 3G for phone calls because I will suddenly have 2 voice mails just pop up randomly.

There is an exception to this. HTC devices .HTC uses their own update server infrastructure rather than relying on Google's GOTA Android servers (available to all Android manufacturers, hence the scheduling). Because of this, they can dictate their own update mechanism, which is usually a free for all. Fewer devices to update compared to all other manufacturers, thus fewer resources required.

Have you called Sprint about the issue, there may be an outage or just something wrong with your device

Interesting, never realized that! Edited my original post, thanks for the info.

Bluetooth issues still persist.  Haven't been able to remedy the problem.  Brother's N5 doesn't have static in my vehicle, but my g2 does.  I've tried 100% stock, and custom ROM. (Not AOSP yet, but heard it has BT issues.)  Anyone know what else to try?  Totally lost here.  Maybe the OTA will patch some unknown bug that exists.

Thinking of switching from my 5s to a g2. Does anyone have a concrete answer as to when the spark update will rollout? Or is still just rumors. How does the g2 perform on band 41 without the update? Thanks.

Sprint confirmed it'll be out sometime in January.  So worst case scenario, it'll be Jan 31st.

How is 41 with an MSL entered, and priority set high? Does it still connect? Or only sometimes.

Only sometimes. If B25 is strong in the area, it won't bother to connect to B41.

I am actually kind of glad that other people are having trouble with the sound quality through the bluetooth... I thought it was just me. I really hopes that it gets fixed soon though.

    • Wrong perks program. This is akin to the Sprint Works program, where Sprint and your company have a bit of a deal that gets you a discount on your line. For example, I have a $5 discount for the time being thanks to the Sprint Works deal with my employer. 
    • The *vast* majority of markets had at least 60Mhz deployed, more if you count small cells and magic boxes. There were only a few areas where they were limited to 40Mhz due to spectrum issues.
    • I was in Greenville, NC last week and finally go to experience T-Mobile's network somewhere that wasn't New York for an extended period of time. Just like NYC, T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum is extremely underdeployed. There are about 15 T-Mobile sites in the entire city and T-Mobile has deployed 600MHz on only 1 of them. Sprint on the other hand has tri-banded nearly every site. Another issue is that Greenville has pretty bad site density on all networks but the issue is exacerbated on T-Mobile by the fact that they lack Band 12 licenses for pretty much all of Eastern NC. The only lowband license they have is 600MHz and they haven't really put it to use at all. The good news is that speeds weren't that bad at all. Speeds were around 20Mbps on average with peaks of about 65Mbps. Deploying 600MHz likely isn't a priority for T-Mobile in Greenville and the towns surrounding it because on their end the network performance looks fine however, deploying 600MHz would fill in a lot of coverage gaps and give a much more reliable signal overall. Until then, Verizon and AT&T will have T-Mobile beat on coverage thanks to them having lowband on every site and U.S. Cellular will have them beat because U.S. Cellular has a bunch of extra sites that no other carrier uses in the region that provide them with much better coverage than any other carrier in the area.
    • Think T-Mobile will bid on this 5G spectrum?: https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Releases/Release/Article/2307275/white-house-and-dod-announce-additional-mid-band-spectrum-available-for-5g-by-t/ “The White House and Department of Defense announced today that 100 megahertz (MHz) of contiguous mid-band spectrum, in the 3450-3550 MHz band, will be available for 5G by the end of the summer.“ More info: https://breakingdefense.com/2020/08/pentagon-gives-up-huge-slice-of-spectrum-for-5g/ “The White House formally made the request in April. Roughly 200 technical experts from all four armed services, the Office of Secretary of Defense, and the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy studied the problem for 15 weeks. The FCC, which has already endorsed the plan, will start auctioning the spectrum off in December 2021, Kratsios said, with commercial use beginning “as soon as mid-2022.”” I’m sure AT&T/Verizon will fight hard for it.
    • My bet is that TMo is having to pay $0 for those deals. They're intro-level promos to drive traffic to those partners, broadcast across TMo's entire customer base. Wouldn't be surprised if the money goes in the opposite direction, easily paying for whoever actually runs the program.
