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.

    • Well, I saw a good deal on a factory unlocked A32 5G on eBay and was able to convince the seller to show me the software info screen--and it was May.  So I jumped on it. Stuck one of my Tello SIMs in it, and while my Moto One 5G Ace would connect to n71 SA, this phone refuses to do so.  And with only 0 for the TA value, it's less useful for LTE than my older devices.  Oh, and the *#2263# menu doesn't work properly for NR.  So definitely glad I'm able to disable updates. - Trip
    • NextWave re-emerges with 2.5 GHz private network service  https://www.fiercewireless.com/private-wireless/nextwave-re-emerges-25-ghz-private-network-service https://www.nextwave5g.com/nextwave-news The only way for T-Mobile to get up to 190MHz now is to either buy out NextWave in it's entirety or wait until NextWave's lease is up and attempt to "outbid" them for the right to lease the spectrum from the Archdiocese.

    • Mike. I sent in more diags for wi-fi 6e yesterday where SCP shows channel = 0.  Thanks.
    • Added and modified them all! I took a trip through the L train tunnel between 1st Avenue and Bedford Avenue recently and found n41 live in the tunnel. It's 80 MHz, speeds were 250-300, and I didn't have time to check if n71 is there. Some stations speeds slow wayyyy down when a train pulls in now, even the ones with B2 at 15 or 20 MHz, so any upgrade is great sight to see.
