SIP is not considered WiFi calling. None of the carriers use SIP for WiFi calling. Whatever the reason for that may be, it must be a good one. I presume it's due to the integration of SIP into the core network. Also, SIP doesn't support text messaging, something WiFi calling does support (at least on sprint).

 

IMS, however, is built into Android. Sprint could leverage that and wouldn't need a WiFi calling app baked into the software.

I had a Sprint product development employee reach out to me this morning after reading this thread. His message says:   Robert via Samsung Note 8.0 using Tapatalk Pro

Just want to say this thread has been very helpful. I thought I had a "problem" with my nexus 5 avoiding switching to LTE until I airplane mode cycled-though looks like it's normal.  Unfortunately based on what I read here it seems the solution is to not drop LTE in the first place :/

If you're streaming data, then yes. If not, it should switch fairly quickly assuming the coverage is there.

Anybody else having issues with GPS the last couple of days. I am stock and both Google Maps and Waze have not been working.

 

Edit:

I should be more clear. They have been working but very spotty.

Do you have Wi-Fi on? My location is usually off by a mile or so with it off.

That shouldn't be. Wi-Fi can be used to more quickly locate you, but unless you are deep within a building, GPS can still get a 5-10m lock within a few seconds.

No and have never had an issue like this. It just goes in and out while using navigation. It will work for 10 seconds then GPS signal lost for 40 seconds. And continues to go on and off. It basically renders navigation useless.

A few updates ago my GPS accuracy went to craps. Gave up navigation with it.

Thanks for letting me know. Glad that I am not the only one. Hopefully this can be resolved soon. I use Nav often for my business.

That could be a hardware defect. Are you in a position to get your Nexus swapped out?

 

There were apparently some early Nexus 5 batches that had poor GPS performance.

Not sure. I got it through Amazon on Sprint contract. Did not cost me a thing. I switched back to Dalvik to see if that will fix it. I will test tomorrow. Have not done a factory reset yet as well.

Update: I just dropped my phone with the case on it. All of the sudden the GPS works fine again. "This is how we do it on the Russian space station". I was just getting ready to do a factory reset. Haha!

Anyone having trouble connecting to LTE? I am on the .15 radio, when on engineering it will show a band 25 in the scan for a split second then the band '50' and goes right to 3g. In scp it shows LTE scan for a sec then right to 1x, then ehrpd.

 

I have attempted the *#*# reset. Changed my band selections, turned em all on and off, updated prls and profile. LTE only. My s4 grabs LTE just fine. I just don't get it.

That's the advanced mode factory reset.

Curious to see if anyone has my issues. When I got back from Italy (used the international roaming there) my phone worked fine for a couple days. Then it would connect to LTE and evdo but not 1x so I couldn't make phone calls. I took it to the store after flashing back to full stock (which didn't fix it). After I told the rep my issues using the technological terms (like ehrpd) she told me that I was talking about gsm and sprint is CDMA. She and the lead tech proceeded to tell me I was still in "international" mode and that I needed to get my phone locked to the network again. I tried to explain that nexuses don't come locked and that wasn't the problem because it worked when I got back. I went home, unfixed, and ended up fiddling with it and changed to ART which magically fixed it for a couple days. Then I decided that I would try the developer preview and it has fixed everything. Thoughts?

I had problems last night, connecting to LTE, but it still happened even when I switched to my m8, check the stl thread for more details.

 

I just switched back from m8 (which eventually connected to LTE around 130am), to n5 and lte is working as well.

Just a thought, someone in our market had an issue with his N5 connecting and had to reset his account online (block calls / texts / data) then re-enable.  This worked for him, could be pure luck though...

Love the nexus. Had to drop Sprint for the day because two towers went down so I have no voice or data service going on two days. They where trying to turn on 800 and something went terribly wrong. T-Mobile saved my ass.

Has there been any resolution to the MMS issue some of us were having with the Android L Preview?

Oh I've been back on KitKat. Just curious if someone found a work around.

There was a sprint user who claims to have got it working by flashing an old radio and a couple other things over in the XDA thread but I had already switched back so can't confirm.

Well that's good news. Thanks for the heads up, I might take a second crack at Android L and see if the fix is legit or not.

      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.

    • Initially T-Mobile was simply slapping n41 panels onto existing sites which meant that NR+LTE aggregation aggregated all available LTE bands with NR. Now, T-Mobile seems to be replacing 600/700MHz antennas every time they add n41 and as a result, the city is getting covered in split eNB IDs. On a local (legacy) 600MHz site by my home, when I connect to n71 it's n71 + Band 2 + Band 66 + Band 71 or Band 12 for a combined total of 50MHz of spectrum. However on my home site, because of the split eNB, when I force my phone to connect to n71 it only aggregates n71 + Band 2 + Band 66 for a total of 45MHz of spectrum. It seems weird that T-Mobile is allowing this to happen instead of fixing it so that they can squeeze as much performance out of their network as possible. 5MHz of LTE is not much but it's still an extra ~37Mbps of speed and capacity that could be provided in NSA mode. Interestingly this problem is not something I experience in LTE-only mode much anymore. My phone seems to have no issue aggregating LTE bands across the split most of the time.   Another thing that has been bothering me is that according to the FCC dashboard T-Mobile has 400MHz of spectrum in the 39GHz band here in NYC that they won in December of 2019 but they haven't done any upgrades to actually use that spectrum here. Instead they've been relying on the two 50MHz blocks aggregated together in the 28GHz band which performs worse than n41 on average.
    • Betting VZW trades that B12 to TMo for B66 eventually.
    • Confirmed that AT&T is running dedicated n5 here, at 10 MHz, by process of elimination. LTE is 10x10, and H+ is 5x5. They might be running DSS or n2 or n66 but I kinda doubt it. Guessing they aren't running H+ on every site anymore either; signal appeared a good bit weaker than the B5 LTE signal when I band selected to it. Also, B14 is pretty obviously not on every site here; signal levels at my place are comparable to B2 and, well, 700 should be a lot better than that. Explains why I wasn't seeing B14 aggregated normally. Though apparently they have 25 MHz of B66...one 15 MHz carrier, one 10 MHz.
