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

There is a 1 year warranty on some phones

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.

The G2 is not designed to talk and use the Internet at the same time. The only way it will is if you are accessing the Internet via wifi.

As far as Swype goes, there is a setting to enable auto space. It is located oddly enough in the Swype settings. uploadfromtaptalk1391000911639.jpg

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.

Or, use a voip app like GrooveIP with a google voice account (or Tapatalk for iPhone users). It works wonderfully and will allow simultaneous voice and data (through VoIp), as long as your data speeds are high enough and you have a good enough signal.

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.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

    • Not exactly...600 MHz antennas haven't been in production for very long and manufacturers are still refining their designs. Since T-Mobile wanted to deploy their spectrum as quickly as possible, they ordered what was available when they started the rollout. Now we're feeling the pain that comes with that early tech. And unfortunately, the shared transmit path means 700 performance takes a hit as well.  There are a lot of much higher performing non-600 4x lowband antennas. For example, Verizon has deployed Amphenol HT4C6318x000 antennas (https://amphenol-antennas.com/product/ht4c6318x000/) throughout the greater Seattle area. These antennas get ~18 dBi gain from 696-900 MHz. As a result, there is a tremendous coverage difference between Verizon and T-Mobile setups from the same site - I'll often drop T-Mobile LTE altogether while Verizon is hovering at -110ish or better. Newer 600 MHz antennas have significantly more robust coverage patterns than the antennas T-Mobile is deploying. For example the Amphenol TWIN6510LU000G-T/TWIN658LU000G-T (https://amphenol-antennas.com/product/twin6510lu000g-t/ and https://amphenol-antennas.com/product/twin658lu000g-t/) get ~17.1dBi and 16.4 dBi gain respectively in the 617-906 MHz range and both support 4xLowband/4xMidband. That being said, I doubt T-Mobile will climb towers to swap out 600 MHz antennas in the near future. As a result, where T-Mobile's density is similar to AT&T and Verizon, as far as raw coverage goes, AT&T and Verizon will have a definite and noticeable edge. 
    • Is it because it went from 2x2 to 4x4 on 600 and 700MHz?
    • What, T-Mobile wouldn't want to carry on the tradition of different SIM SKUs for different phones?
    • For what ever reason my magicbox stopped working with LTE backhaul after they sent me the gen 3.  No I have the Casa pebble.  It uses ethernet/wifi for backhaul.  I just got it installed yesterday and mms is working great which was hit or miss with wifi calling.  Hopefully VOLTE will start working on it soon as WiFi calling does tend to drop out from time to time.
