No data connection on 1xrtt


Recommended Posts

Since upgrading to my Galaxy S5 I have noticed that when I fall back to 1xrtt I have no data connection available. The same thing happens when I'm roaming on U.S. Cellular. 1xrtt worked for data on my single band S4. Is anyone else experiencing this on tri-band handsets?

I actually just noticed this on my M8. On native Sprint 1x, my phone refuses to turn on mobile data.

I have experienced very very slow data on 1xRTT, but its definitely expected.  or at least I expected that.

Hmm weird I get 1x a lot when I'm on fringe areas or in CDMA only mode with data. Guess the m8 H/K edition is quite different then the m8 regular variant. More bugs but seems OK this go around.

Ensure that domestic data roaming is enabled on the handset.  It is often disabled by default.

Data roaming is enabled, but even with native sprint coverage I get no data. The phone kicks out an error code. I think it was 67, I'll have to pay closer attention next time it happens.

Forced CDMA only and got this.attachicon.gifuploadfromtaptalk1407466241724.jpg

 

Maybe Sprint still has more CDMA1X voice traffic than we realize, and that precludes enough bandwidth to make a CDMA1X connection to the data server.

 

Regardless, whatever you do, steer clear of the "Korea Mode" in your pic.  Almost a decade later, I still do not know its purpose.  But the end result is bad, really bad.

I do not have one.

I usually got that error when I did a profile update on the airave, and then went outside of the airave zone, but a new profile update outside of the airave zone fixed it usually.

Wait what happens? Have you done it before?

I'm curious about this Korea mode as well, please allow us to learn from your actions so as that we may not be doomed to repeat them.

Ditto.

 

I'm in L.A., and 1x on iPhone 5S and Nexus 5 won't establish a data connection. It so consistently won't connect to data, that I'm starting to think that Sprint is blocking data over 1x (not necessarily unwise, to ensure enough bandwidth for voice).

This is an old thread but it may be applicable.

Error code 67 is a provisioning problem. I've had it before after changing devices. I think its from your phone number or data credentials being incorrect in your device. If you call Sprint technical support explain the issue and give them that error code, they should be able to walk you through it.

Hmm, the author of that nearly decade old HowardForums thread seems vaguely familiar.  If only we could have someone that experienced here at S4GRU...

 

;)

    • The S21U was very spotty with connecting to 6E. It would only see it on a router reboot. I thought it was more the router than the S21U, however my laptop would solidly connect to the 6E network, so it must have been the S21U. Since I'm on WiFi7 with the S24U, I haven't kept track of it. I will flip over and check it out later. 
    • Wi-fi 6e missing (6 GHz on one of two ultras). Perhaps coming from an app?  Wifi analyzer can see the 6ghz, just can't see them to connect.  May try wifi reset, although communications reset could have been the source of this problem.  Others have reported it, so not an isolated issue. Edit: Fixed: Rebooted into safe mode. Wifi 6e worked. Normal boot back. No wifi 6e in available nerworks.  Unistalled Asus Router app. Checked for Wifi 6e being visible in wifi available networks. Nothing. Deleted Netgear Genie app. Then saw networks. of mine I had not connected to in wifi available networks. Forgot the desired 2.4&5&6 SSID that did not show 6E. Connected to it again. 6e now works.
    • I noticed today while I was out and about in Louisville that b30 has been widened back to 10x10. They reduced it to 5x5 back in Sept 2018 presumably due to satellite radio interference. Not sure how long ago the change happened but it couldn't have been too terribly long ago. I noticed the different earfcn in the neighbor list, I don't usually see b30 as pcc much but I wonder if that will change now. I locked my phone to b30 only on my drive home from work and noticed the new(old?) earfcn on every site, so it wasn't just a 1 or 2 site fluke. It also looks like they've been doing some fiber or other cabling work around the b2/b46 small cell nodes, I wonder if they are about to start adding c-band radios to those. 
    • Should trade it for some low-band there or elsewhere. AT&T dominates lowband.    
    • I checked existing spectrum holdings and selling 5x5 PCS to each of VZW and AT&T in Kauai would get them to 20x20 apiece there, which should make them happy. In Maui it makes more sense to sell 5x5 each of PCS and AWS to get VZW 20x20 AWS and AT&T 15x15 PCS. I figure it would be a sale rather than a swap, as neither of the other two have spectrum T-Mobile would want that's high-frequency enough to avoid the spectrum screen. Honestly, T-Mobile is strong enough in Hawaii from a capacity perspective that cutting down PCS/AWS holdings won't hurt, particularly in exchange for finally unlocking 2.5 (though in Maui I saw 140 MHz n41 regularly in September if I remember correctly).
