Wow. Big improvement. My phone silky and very fast. Be sure to have a fully charged battery and a lot time. It will take over an hour and about 40% of your battery.

I just turned on my M8 for the first time in months and I go the update to Marshmallow. I honestly forgot how good this phone is.

 

Question: Can I switch my SIM from my current phone to my M8 and use it or is there a while process. Just curious because I might want to switch phones occasionally.

I think you can use the SIM, you just have to type all the numbers in online when you do the swap. That's if it is the same kind of SIM. There are so many types I forget which ones belong to which devices.

Grrr. Charging port on my M8 has gone kaput and I can't find anybody to fix it including Sprint.

 

Yeah, that's not exactly an uncommon thing I had a family member who had an M8 that I ended up having to replace the charging port on myself because I couldn't find anyone that would do it for any sort of reasonable amount. In the end it turned out not to be too bad of a process, the hardest part was making sure I was getting the part with the correct connections which ended up costing like $10 on Amazon.

I had to replace my charging port and my brothers. It's a pretty easy process and pretty cheap. I got the replacement part on eBay for like $7. Just look on eBay or Amazon for "htc one m8 charging port" and you'll find what you need.

I've had great luck with my HTC One M8 that I ordered when it was first released two years ago.

 

I've recently noticed a problem where the M8 shuts down like the battery is dead, even though the battery indicator is showing something like 20% charge remaining.  This has happened a few times recently, and every time the indicated battery level is 20-25%.

 

So, either the battery indicator is way off, or the battery is shot and is dead even when there is 20% charge remaining.

 

If it's just that the battery indicator is off, is there a way to reset it or otherwise make it more accurately reflect the true battery charge level?

 

Thank you!!

Battery is likely crapping out after two years or so. Mine began doing the same when it was approaching the two year mark. Usually a factory reset might help bit but otherwise the phone might be on its last legs.

Wow, really?  Batteries are only good for (barely) two years?  I believe you, but I'm just surprised that they puke that fast.  I thought these Lithium ion batteries were supposed to have longer life.

I had the same thing happen a couple months ago. I tried everything. Clearing battery stats in recovery, new rom, new kernel, everything. I eventually replaced the battery with one I got on eBay and the new one worked perfectly. It's the battery crapping out unfortunately

Could you please link to any instructions for a battery swap?

Just follow any instructions for a screen replacement. It's the exact same, you just don't have to go as far as they do for the screen

Mine was doing it at 25%-30% depending on what I was doing. It would just die.

Did replacing the battery fix the problem?  I just want to make sure it's actually the battery and not something else before deciding to replace the battery.

I upgraded the phone. I never replaced the battery.  Sorry i can't help you there.

    • 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.  — — — — — The old permit expired for this site without any work being done but a new permit was just approved a few days ago for a T-Mobile site at this address. Description mentions 3 antennas with 2 RRUs per sector. My guess is they're doing something similar to what they did at 360 Furman St in Brooklyn where they broadcast Band 2/66 and n25/41 from one antenna. It's a bit of a downgrade considering the site it's replacing was a full build with Ericsson 6449s. 
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
