Network issue?? Google Play issue?? Or Phone issue???


Recommended Posts

So I went to dl an app in the play store, while out and about.  Clicked install and asked for the permissions, and went to the DL part and it just sat there with the little blue progress bar doing its thing, but no progress is being made....  I think ok thats weird try again, same thing....hummmm


Power off and restart, try again...nothing, so I think maybe its this particular app....try a different one nothing.....hummm   Ok so i do a speed test....on band 41 if it matters... anyway doing its thing, half way through kicks out network issues   :hmm:  :hmm:  :hmm:  :hmm:   ok so i go in and disable band 41....kicks to 26, try it again  :scratch:  :scratch:  :scratch:  :scratch:  :scratch:   shortly there after it cycles back to 25 (26 had a reading of 84)


So then I think its the tower, so i click install and put it away...drive around and head home....forget to check it....get home turn on my wifi..... :blink:  :blink:  :blink:   it works....


i am getting FB notifications, and other things work....what seems to be the deal here???

I'm having the same thing... The only thing that has let me install my apps is clearing the data for Google Play, restarting and then quickly do it.

I have seen this happen. Go into the app settings and clear all data in the google play store, download manager and then restart. See if that helps

ok we will try this... what about the band 41 issue cutting in and out

I don't know if it related. But here in the eastern Iowa market (where we don't have spark) is seeing eerily similar issues. Since February 12th, the network connection will just stop working. I would be surfing and then all of a sudden web pages wouldnt load. I would do a speed test and it wouldn't run. So I toggled airplane mode on and off and then data would work again (around 5mbps). Then about 2 mins later it would stop working again. Another temp solution is doing ##update to get it working again, but again that is only temporary.


We are also experiencing dramatic speed swings from 5mbps down to .2 in the same location taken within a minute of each other.

If you google "google play download stalls" or hangs a lot of people have similar issues. Ive always had issues intermittently.


Yeah, I've always had a lag issue with Play updates even on my fancy home wifi.

    • Checked and downloading a 1.6 MB Google Play System update.    Still reflects June 1 after.

    • The options to ignore GCI/NCI/PLMN/TAC are buggy.. working on resolving it. NSA cells are probably not being logged for most users yet.
    • Boost Mobile – the Newest Wireless Carrier – Launches New State-of-the-Art Nationwide 5G Network, Plans and Branding https://about.dish.com/2024-07-17-Boost-Mobile-the-Newest-Wireless-Carrier-Launches-New-State-of-the-Art-Nationwide-5G-Network,-Plans-and-Branding I'm really digging the relaunch of the brand. The new app is a lot better than before in that it actually feels like they're going a more premium route. The BoostOne app tried to gamify wireless service by making you want videos or download games in order to get discounts on your bill. Now it's decluttered and basically only account management. It's perfect. I was on a promotional $25/month unlimited plan on Boost Mobile and I just switched to the new $25 forever plan which is pretty much the same as before, the only exception being that now I'm price locked. The only thing I wish they'd do is start using QCIs instead of throttling once you use up your allotment of "premium data". I understand that they don't have as much capacity as the big 3 and that they're super reliant on AT&T and T-Mobile outside of major metros but hitting 30GB and being throttled to 512kbps is not competitive. They then try to charge $30 for an extra 10GB of high speed data. The big 3 and their prepaid brands have basically given up on hard throttling and use prioritization instead. They should consider doing the same. The next step for them is getting their name on Apple's websites this fall when the new iPhones drop. That's some of the best advertising a carrier can have. Instantly millions of people will learn that Boost Mobile is an actual carrier if they can pull that off.
    • Use cloud features or backup files first before updating with this firmware.  I updated my S24 Ultra with this update.  T-Mobile and Verizon network esims worked fine.  Dish Rainbow sim appeared to work fine.  Right after that, when I rebooted to another non-public test esim which previously worked fine, I got the Samsung Welcome screen.
