Equivalent of an LG G3

Hi There,

 

I was on the phone with Exec Care today about coverage issues in our area. After talking a bit, it came down to: "The network situation is not going to change for at least the next year or two in that area so we can do one of a few things"

 

1. Swap out phone at no cost to me for an equivalent device (In case of a radio defect).

 

2. Get an airave at no charge to me (Won't help my situation in the area).

 

3. Turn in all my equipment, Sprint pays my last bill, and will help me migrate to a new carrier.

 

I'm going to go with option 1 to start. What is a good "Equivalent" phone that I can get. I want something that will do the CCA bands, etc. Ideas? I'm heading to Sprint now to check out some devices. Then I have to call him back with my decision.

Took the dive for the nexus 6. Gives me the ability to test out other networks too.

if your coverage sucks when you get the nexus 6 then its definately the network as the N6 is a very good rf performer

agreed.  Could just be one tower causing your issue as well.  Wonder if the issue is only experienced in one place, and not everywhere else.  The Nexus 6 is not bad though.  Be careful if you play with LTE settings in the debug menu.  You may have to reflash.  Not all of us have had the problem, but Im not the only one with an issue.

    • 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.
