I am currently in Fayetteville Tennessee. Per signal check pro my evdo is at -72 but in () it says si wireless . This appears to be preventing me from making or getting calls as well as txt msgs. I called sprint and they had me go into cdma only mode am d do a ##72786#. However, they were not able to get me back to working. When I drive over to pulaski Tennessee I notice the si wireless disappeara and I get all info. My mom has a sprint iPhone and thats working fine. While my s4 is not. Any help is greatly appreciated.

This may be one of those rare occasions, when asking have you performed a PRL update is a valid question.

Yes, I just did it and it made no difference. Also, the sprint rep had me update the profile and when I did the ##72..., it tries to update the prl. The odd thing is snapchat works (wifi not connected) and I appear to be getting email.

You have the Galaxy S4? A little confused since your profile says "HTC G2" ...

 

Anyway, you are in an area with no native Sprint coverage. The Sprint support person should have noticed that. Rather you are using another network that provides pseudo-native coverage.

 

Which model of the GS4 do you have?

I was wondering why you asked that. I believe I got it before November. If im looking at the right thing the model is L720

 

Ok, the newer versions end with a T. Sounds like your device is just having problems with the pseudo-native coverage there.

Yeah im in a different part of Tennessee (puhlaski) and its working. Heading home shortly (michigan). Sucked not having service for 3 days.

 

Puhlaski has native Sprint service, so there's the issue. Wasn't playing nice with the other provider.

    • Did some more exploring tonight. Saw n77 on both my USM and Visible SIMs, but never for long enough to take a screenshot, let alone do a speedtest. VZW's coverage maps are *massively* overstated for n77, at least here. Had to go pretty far north to even get those glimpses. Finding T-Mobile n41 was miles easier.
    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
