Some of you may remember the 1x issue I was having that I posted about a few pages back.  Well, I managed to fix it on accident.  I switched over to my T-Mobile prepaid SIM for some testing today, and upon switching back to Sprint, the issue was completely fixed!  Something funky must have happened with the last transition from T-Mobile -> Sprint.  Glad it's all fixed now. Remembering to put my phone in 1x only mode when rebooting was really annoying.

Quick question for you.  I also put a T-Mobile prepaid SIM in my N5 for a couple weeks (while going back to my G2 on Sprint).   I had a very difficult time getting the N5 to properly activate on Sprint afterwords.  Did you have a similar experience? 

 

When the handset finally did activate (after several profile updates and reboots), I didn't have any LTE data.  The signal was there but no throughput.  Luckily, I had a EFS backup from a month or two ago and that patched things up.

Yup, I had the same experience. Sprint kept giving me to different engineers before hanging up on me. So, I spent about 30 seconds to change the mobile network settings which I had assumed would be the logical area to fix the issue and that fixed it.

I have to switch to LTE only mode after I pop in the sprint sim.

My Nexus 5 comes today. I would have gotten the G3 but I prefer my phones have wireless and mobility between carriers. Plus, LG has been slow and tight lipped about updates. My wife has been slowing android L since I installed it for her.

Actually LG has been prompt on updating the G2(4 updates in 9 months), and I don't see why the G3 would be different. Also they're going to be selling new backs to enable wireless charging.

However I'm sure you'll love the n5, personally it's just the right size and the buttery smoothness of pure android is hard to beat:D. The official release of "L" seems to be on track to be pretty stellar. If you have any questions or tips you'd like to know feel free to ask in here, were a pretty active group.

Sometimes it's a pain, but this time I found that it activated very easily. All I did was switch the radio mode back to LTE/CDMA auto and it connected to LTE, then properly handed off to 3G when I went inside.

Ok....So last Sunday my N5 stopped connecting to mobile data. Looked at my phone and noticed that there was no LTE or 3G symbol in status bar. Called Sprint, they could not get it working. Went to a store...could not get it working. Did factory reset....no luck. It will not go through the hands free activation. It says cannot be activated at this time. Try to do a PRL, Profile update and get a network error, try again later message. When I use signal check it shows connected to band 41 and in the all the phone menus to check which band and signal it says connected to LTE. Calls and texts work fine. Any ideas?

Have you tried forcing LTE only mode and seeing if it'd connect?

When you do the profile/PRL update are you connected to WiFi?

When I force it to LTE only it says searching for service, but when I check the signal Im connected to band 41, says LTE and gives me an IP address. I have been connected to wifi when trying a PRL, Profile update, same error message. The wifi data works fine.

If you don't have your msl, get it or use the nexus 5 field test app to go into the engineering screens and disable b41.

Has anyone experienced the bug where they cannot answer/decline incoming calls on their N5, and the phone just continues ringing forever, even after the caller is kicked to voicemail? Started about 3 days ago for me, and it is driving me nuts. The only way to get off the incoming call screen is to reboot. It has been happening with increasing frequency to the point where it now happens on every incoming call.

 

I've read elsewhere about others having similar problems, but haven't seen any clear resolutions. I've had my N5 since shortly after launch and never had this problem. Wiped cache/dalvik and it didn't help. Going to factory reset tonight unless someone has any other suggestions.

 

Thanks,

-Mike

If your EFS partition is screwed up, you'd need to flash the Google factory image.

If the EFS is messed up not even a factory image can help you. EFS is phone specific. It is rare that the EFS ever gets messed up unless you're really trying to break it.

Are you using a custom kernel by any chance? If so, I'd revert to stock and see if that helps.  I've seen some very weird issues caused by kernel bugs.

Never experienced that issue. Before a factory reset I would try clearing data for the dialer app.

I have had this intermittent problem since I received the phone shortly after release. If I remember correctly people seem to think it has something to do with being connected to LTE while receiving an incoming call

Nope.. rooted, ART, everything else stock.

Already tried that. Cache too. Just saw something about clearing data for Google Play so I wiped Services and Store, we'll see if it helps. Seems like those shouldn't be related though.

Factory reset did not help.

I've had LTE in my area for a long time, and never experienced this on my N5. I will try disabling LTE if the latest troubleshooting doesn't help. I also saw other reports that factory resets don't help, so I'm trying to avoid that hassle. Makes me think its hardware or network-related, but that seems strange. The phone rings and the incoming call screen comes up, but no matter where I flick the icon to -- answer, decline, or text -- the screen remains and the phone keeps ringing. Strangely, the text message does appear to go through if I choose that option.

      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.

    • If they trade it'll be AT&T most likely since they own the B block and Bluegrass has C block. 
    • 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.
