Hello! I'm new to Sprint and I'm having some issues with my LG G2. I was hoping someone could assist me with it.

 

1. My most urgent problem is the constant powercycling. If the screen is locked and I unlock it, oftentimes it powercycles once or twice before I can actually use the phone. It's not the issue with the proximity sensor being covered (that's totally separate). It's just when I Swype to unlock the phone.

 

2. I can't use the internet when I'm on the phone. I can't believe it and it's really disappointing that it's doing this.

 

3. My Swype doesn't automatically space between words when I'm on the internet. If I don't actually touch the space bar, then allmywritinglookslikethis. Mypreciousphonespacedbetweenwords. I'mnotsureifthisisasettingbutIneedhelpplease!

Sorry I don't see an edit button. The phone freezes when I swipe to unlock it.

 

I can't use data and internet at the same time. I read issues about the LG g2 having LTE issues but I'm not sure what that means.

 

My previous phone didn't have issues with Swype not spacing properly.

if you have insurance on your phone or esrp (equipement service & replacement program) , take it to sprint. First I would try a factory reset. If you still have those power issues, bring it to sprint and see if they can replace it for you. If your new enough (14 days), they should just swap it out real quick

I would also try a factory reset and if that fails to fix the problem then I would take it to a Sprint repair store as suggested. It sounds like a funky software issue.

hmmmm is that sarcasm? At any rate I already had the auto space feature selected....it works for text messages,it's only when I'm on webpages that it does this. Also I can't imagine a smartphone in 2014 that's DESIGNED not to allow you to use the internet while on the phone.

Not sarcasm, it's a fact. No Sprint triband phones are SVLTE. Therefore no talk and data simultaneously. This will most likely continue into the foreseeable future.

This is a bad assumption. There are not many devices anymore on the Sprint network that you can use simultaneous voice and data, except WiFi. To use simultaneous voice and LTE, you need a single band LTE device. To use simultaneous voice and 3G, you need one of the first generation Sprint LTE devices.

 

If you need simultaneous voice and data and one of these newest devices, you will need to go to another provider. Sprint is only producing Triband LTE devices, and they do not support simultaneous voice and data except on WiFi.

I am an Internet addict and even I haven't had a moment where I thought to myself that the lack of simultaneous voice and data was a major issue. You can always use wifi if it's a big deal and I'd that doesn't work for you, there are a variety of free hot spot plans that can provide enough data to browse and check email while you are on a call and the only thing you need to do is purchase a hot spot device.

i had the swype issue a few times on my HTC one on online forums.  I would make sure it is up to date, and if that is not the case you may want to go to swype's forum and look in there.  There should be a fix for this issue.

    • Just mapped at least 8 5G small cells (all 109xxxx gNBs) while driving on the Southern State. They all seem to be n25/n41. I'm pretty sure nearly all of them are upgrades of existing small cells as opposed to new builds but I'm glad to see Crown Castle/T-Mobile hard at work getting midband 5G on all of these. Each of the unpinned gNBs belong to 1-2 small cells. I still can't pin these sites until the Cellmapper devs give us the option to split cells for 5G sites.
    • Their offers have been crap recently, so this is just more evidence to not buy from T-Mobile. 
    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.
