Yup... didn't even know that was a thing for Android until it happened. Can't get past the blue screen so anything I had not on the SD card is gone.

 

Went to Sprint today and they too were baffled by it. I wound up getting a Note 5 to replace because the G4 would be a minimum of a week to ship. I will still be tracking this thread because my mom has the G3 too.

 

As much as I like the Note 5, I'm already missing my G3. I'm bummed that it did that and it didn't even make it 2 years (July 2016). Maybe I'll get a used one off Swappa so I can still have one... after I recuperate my poor wallet from this unexpected expense.

Hey, I went from g4 to note 5 and I'm not looking back. And I've been a staunch LG supporter since G2. I thought I would be with LG a very long time, but I see that the g5 isn't my cup of tea...I just don't think it would be a phone that I'm really happy with. This note 5 is everything I've been looking for.

Haha see now I feel the exact opposite about my Note 5... I miss so many of the little features my G3 had. Knock on, the back buttons, the screen brightness setting (where you could just tap the button and quickly change through 4 different screen brightness'), and most of all the movable home and buttons.

 

After a few days of use, I'm getting used to it but I really would rather make the Note 5 my business line and replace it with a used G4 or get a G5. I didn't realize how much I used all those little features and I legit miss my phone. I'm very, very, very sad and bummed it did that. :(

I've got a G3 that has been delegated to backup duty since purchasing my 6P. Shoot me an offer through PM if interested.

I actually would be, however this week ate my budget. Not only did my G3 die, but my car also decided it needed to break down on a highway and get towed.

 

So until I can recoup some of my costs, I can't really buy anything more. But if you still have it or want to sell it in about a month, I may hit you up on it if that's okay?

Sounds good, I'm not actually actively trying to sell it.

Are others still using their LG G3?  I don't see much discussion lately in this forum and i've not been hanging around s4gru for quite some time.  

 

I've got  a G3 that I still owe six months of EasyPay that's barely hanging on.  WiFi has stopped working along with the USB charging port.  The second battery that I got from LG when I bought it isn't working anymore either (phone continually reboots with that battery in).  I still have one battery working.  The camera doesn't take pictures like it used to, the colors are off and the focus isn't very good.

 

With all of this, I'm thinking of getting a new phone but still owing money on this phone is keeping me from moving.  Jut not very satisfied with how long this phone has lasted.   My son is still actively using my old Samsung S3 (even with a cracked screen).  This one barely lasted 18 months.

Anyone else have similar problems with their G3?

Mine was overheating. But i think i fixed that problem by adding a thermal pad for the processor. I dont want to do lease, so i am waiting for when i can upgrade on two year contract extension. Sprint is offering me early upgrade. But lease or flex pay only.

My sister is still using the G3 I got at launch and it's running fine. My g2 I had before that is still alive as well, being used by my nephew.

Thanks for the replies guys.  I guess I just got "lucky"   :)

 

I had a cracked screen on this one two about 6 months ago but got that replaced.  If the spare batter was still working I'd probably just suck it up until I was done paying it off.  My wife wants me to get an iPhone, but I like Android better from just the little bit I've played around with IOS.  And with all my stuff already in the Google ecosystem I'm not sure I want to make that move.

 

Maybe I'll try to wait it out until the Note 6 gets here.  Like the S7 but I prefer the bigger phone.

Excellent. :)

 

I plan to keep using my LG G3 for perhaps another year.

Indeed! I'm going to say next week we should see it.

LGLS990 in the works for Marshmallow.

Found on Sprint site 4/25.

 

I hope we get it soon, figuring that if Sprint does, then I can get it on Boost about the same time...

Exactly what I said on the 28th... Wonder what's the hold up, they are normally fast on updates.

Could be due to all of the Network upgrades currently happening...

 

If Sprint does update to Marshmallow, Boost should have it simultaneously, correct?

I don't follow Boost at all, so I have no clue, but today ZVE is showing as a version now.

Received an update tonight, but seems to just have been a security fix.

Just what I thought it would be after seeing it state it was for lollipop. That's sad that its just that. ='/

      Hey guys, have any other users of the g flex 2 noticed issues with lagging battery life etc? Since I got my g flex 2 I have had these issues, even after a complete factory reset / wipe it's still laggy with minimal applications installed? I was just curious if that anyone else had been having these type of issues with the g flex 2.

      I bought an LG Tribute to track the rollout of Sprint Spark (and to test Network Vision service as well) in my area. Is there anything I should know when I start tracking? Any particular apps I should get or dialing codes I should know?

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
