SMS issues


Recommended Posts

I've been doing a lot of traveling lately and I'm having bad SMS experiences. This is occurring on a LG G2 with Android 4.4.2 and a Nexus 5 with 5.0.1.

 

It has occurred in Chicago, Tucson, Des Moines and Champaign.

 

Sending SMS gets stuck on "Sending" and might eventually send or might fail. Incoming texts I'm getting 3 or 4 times each with different time stamps.

 

Known issue?

Are you using the default messaging or a 3rd party messaging app via Google Play?  Are you able to make and receive calls?  Have you tried powering down both handsets for a few minutes and then re-attempt sending SMS messages after you power them back up?  Have you done a PRL and data profile update?

Using Google's messenger app. Calls are fine. Data is fine. Phone has been rebooted and also toggle airplane mode. PRL and profile is current. Very intermittent problem. Sprint responded to a tweet tonight saying its a known LTE issue without a fix yet and to change to 3G to get the SMS out if it happens. Not sure I believe that because I'm pretty sure my phone had kicked back to 3G indoors in Chicago this weekend and I still couldn't get a SMS out.

I have had this issue as well and it seems to be either a registration issue between the device and the tower or you are in a spot where the network has trouble assigning you to a band because you are bouncing between them. Where i work i had the issue for three months but was finally able to get it resolved by them adjusting either the power level or tilt of the panels. After the resolution the band 41 signal seems to travel further as well.

    • Good catch! I meant 115932/119932. Edited my original post I've noticed the same thing lately and have just assumed that they're skipping it now because they're finally able to deploy mmWave small cells.
    • At some point over the weekend, T-Mobile bumped the Omaha metro from 100+40 to 100+90 of n41! That's a pretty large increase from what we had just a few weeks ago when we were sitting at 80+40Mhz. Out of curiosity, tested a site on my way to work and pulled 1.4Gpbs. That's the fastest I've ever gotten on T-Mobile! For those that know Omaha, this was on Dodge street in Midtown so not exactly a quiet area!
    • Did you mean a different site? eNB ID 112039 has been around for years. Streetview even has it with C-band back in 2022 - https://www.google.com/maps/@40.7303042,-73.9610924,3a,24.1y,18.03h,109.66t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1s2ossx06yU56AYOzREdcK-g!2e0!5s20220201T000000!6shttps:%2F%2Fstreetviewpixels-pa.googleapis.com%2Fv1%2Fthumbnail%3Fpanoid%3D2ossx06yU56AYOzREdcK-g%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.share%26w%3D900%26h%3D600%26yaw%3D18.027734930682684%26pitch%3D-19.664180274382204%26thumbfov%3D90!7i16384!8i8192?coh=205410&entry=ttu Meanwhile, Verizon's eNB 84484 in Fort Greene has been updated to include C-band and CBRS, but not mmWave. I've seen this a few times now on updated Verizon sites where it's just the CBRS antenna on its own, not in a shroud and without mmWave. Odd.
    • Drove out into the country today.  Dish stuck to my phone like glue. At least -120 rsrp. Likely only good for phone calls (should have tested.) It then switched to T-Mobile. Getting back on Dish was another issue. I am used to dragging out coverage so I expected a few miles, but had to drive at least 10 miles towards a Dish site. Airplane mode, which worked for Sprint, did nothing. Rebooting did nothing. Finally got it to change over about 2 miles from the site by manually setting the carrier to Dish then it had great reception. Sprint used to have a 15 minute timeout but I did not have the patience today.  Previously I did a speed test on Dish out in the country at the edge of Dish coverage. My speeds were 2g variety. Dish has really overclocked some of these sites. Seen rssp readings in the 50s. Would have called them boomer sites with Sprint but much  more common with Dish.
