Anyone know what's causing this? Happening every day and I have to reboot to get LTE data back.

Yeah. Every day, gotta reboot or LTE data doesn't come back.

Did this just start happening on Wed? I noticed the same thing on my M9 and have a friend with M9 experiencing the same thing out of nowhere. Now that I think about it, buddy with M8 having same exact issue.

 

No clue what is going on but it's pretty annoying.

I know it started mainly this week. I don't recall when. But it looks like several other people on Reddit have the same issue.

Remembering back to when I had a HTC M8 or M7, and I saw the error previously, if I remember correctly someone on another forum found out that the problem seemed to be caused by one of the HTC core apps that had received a botched update. If memory serves, the problems went away when HTC issued an update patch.

 

I think that is the only fix.

I'll swap out my ROM and see if that helps. Or reflash the Sense7 rom.

I used to have this problem with my Samsung Galaxy Nexus way back when.  Used to drive me bonkers!

My mom has the HK edition and yesterday we discovered her camera lens is scratched. Is this something that would be covered under warranty?

 

about 6 months ago I had the same problem which was producing blurry photos. I brought it to a sprint repair store who told me that it's not covered by warranty and that they would have to send it in for repair which may or may not be covered. Instead of dealing with that idiot I went to another sprint repair store. the guy there took my phone, tried updating something, did some testing and came back to me saying that it is a free replacement. I bought mine at release and with further research it appears on early released phones there was a film on the front of the camera lens that was sometimes peeling off and causing blurry photos. hopefully that helps.

If my memory is correct, the film on the HTC M8 camera lens, was some sort of Anti-Glare UV film. And, yes, it tended to peal off.

 

The UV film started wearing off of the camera lens on my HTC M8, but luckily for me the area around the lens apture completely wore off, so my pictures came out fine.

 

Others, however, had to wind up removing the remainder of the UV film by using a toothbrush and toothpaste.

I had this issue too. My m8 was also a release day m8. My pictures became very over exposed and blurry, and for a while I couldn't figure out why. Then people started talking about that film and I used a credit card to scratch the rest of the film off. The camera has been fine ever since.

 

Except for a huge crack through the lens that showed up a couple months after purchase, but that doesn't show up in the pictures so I guess it's whatever.

Hmm, this is all good to know.  That *is* kind of what it looks like, sort of like something is "peeling" off.  I'll look at it more closely and see if that's what it is!

If you haven't already read. Mo Versi tweeted the target for an update on sprint m8's is mid-week. Although he didn't post technical acceptance yet. We shall hear more in the next few days.

Anyone having issues with apps crashing?  I have the E8, but it's the same underneath as the M8 ...  Apps will random freeze and get the "Stopped responding" message all the time.  Happens in Facebook, Timehop, etc.  Really frustrating!  Tried clearing all caches but does not work.  Also uninstalled and reinstalled both.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
