Google Nexus 5X by LG User Thread (LG H790)

Recommended Posts

Thanks. I may have to take a drive sometime to try to find out. Any negative replies of inability to roam on LTE in a particular location? I don't recall seeing any when I read through this thread.

 

 

There have been some USCC LTE Roaming reports in Missouri, I was able to get LTE roaming in Kansas.

 

I should say, both of those reports where from LG G4s.

I've got a question about sim card swapping. I wanted to compare the data speeds on my 5X between Sprint, ATT, and T-mobile at different spots around town. Also my sister-in-law lives in a horrible Sprint coverage hole near Neosho, so popping in a different sim while we are there would be awful handy. I know on gsm phones, swapping sims is no big deal. I just want to make sure that doing so wouldn't affect the Sprint CDMA activation, and that everything would still work normally after putting the Sprint sim back in. Has anyone here done this?

I searched on here and did a Google search, but nothing I found gave me enough confidence to try it. On one forum, I found someone on a different carrier that had issues switching back to their CDMA carrier on a Nexus 5 (I believe it was in Canada).

I'm pretty sure in theory everything should be OK as long as you don't change any settings on Sprint's website related to the SIM or line while it's inactive. And you do a "network settings update" or whatever it's called in the 5X's carrier settings whenever you swap.

I haven't had problems switching between Sprint SIM and other GSM provider SIMs in my Nexus devices.  Most of the problems come from switching between Sprint MVNO's and Sprint.  Also, make sure you don't change your Sprint account to another device while using the GSM SIM.

Not sure if this has been found yet, but I know it was in question if 3rd party unlocked devices were able to access Band 41 CA. Activated my Nexus 5x this morning and got this.

Thanks. Finally remembered I had an unused nano sim for Straight Talk. I activated it and popped it in the 5X and it worked without issue swapping either direction. Edited by Grabber5.0

what?  CA and LTE roaming has been enabled on my 5x since I first activated it shortly after it was released.

Does LTE roaming actually work, though?  We have not had any reports yet of LTE roaming on the three unlocked BYOD handsets, only on Sprint branded handsets.

What screen is that? I can't find it in the engineering screens. Edited by Grabber5.0

It's the data screen, ##3282# or *#*#3282#*#*

Thanks. I'm sure glad you can paste those codes into the dialer. Of course that means I'll probably never memorize them.

Just remember ##DATA# or *#*#DATA#*#*, like getting to the engineering screen is ##DEBUG#

I've used them on other phones, but the ## versions don't work on my 5x, only the *#*# versions, and the order keeps tripping me up. :D

I don't have this option on my 6p is this only for the 5x?

Works fine on my 6P. Remember the order of *s and #s is reversed on the beginning and end.

 

Edit: or do you mean the LTE roaming line? If so, I don't have it on my 6P either.

Sorry I should have been more clear I don't have the LTE roaming line. Why would the 5x and not the 6p?

The 6P also doesn't have the CA line and lacks a useful/functional LTE engineering screen. Different people writing this part of the software is my guess (ie different manufacturers)

Sprint is in the process of swapping around a lot of PCS spectrum with VZW, AT&T, and T-Mobile.  That will affect band class 1 CDMA2000 carrier channel assignments.  Those changes may precipitate multiple PRL updates.  For reference, see current and future articles on The Wall.

    • Thanks! I build non carrier compliant but still compliant machines so if you need one before T-Mo builds one I am here.     
    • I just found this out myself on the s10e. Download the Samsung Band Selection app and you can set it back to wifi if you want. Dumb that there is no menu option for it natively.
    • So I got the Pebble from Sprint, I'm waiting for the damn VoLTE to enable. I harassed Sprint and they said it is a limitation of the device (which they still can't explain why) and waiting is the only option. They also told me every time there is a power failure the wait for it to enable begins again.... really? Does anyone know how it works and why there is a 2-3 week lead up to VoLTE enabling? So now my voice calls drop down to 1x and I can't receive MMS when I'm on a call. No problem I thought, I'll just switch to wifi calling for now and I can still get MMS over LTE while I'm on a call. Not so fast. For some damn reason wifi calling doesn't work on my SM-G970U1 (unlocked s10e) when I'm connected to the Pebble. If I turn airplane mode on, wifi calling pops right up. If I unplug the pebble, wifi calling pops right up. That leads one to believe the Pebble is preventing wifi calling from activating for some reason. However, my dad's LG V20 has absolutely no issue using wifi calling while connected to the Pebble and can therefore receive MMS just fine. Do you have any idea what in the hell could be causing this? Is this some whack setting on the s10e which I'm not seeing? Phone has the latest updates, 911 is updated, I did PRL and profile updates. I'm stumped....   UPDATE: So I found the answer in the wifi-calling menus and googling that took me to a post here. Apparently starting in April of 2020, Sprint decided it knows what is best for you so it sets calling over the network to preferred and only if signal is too weak will it default to wifi calling. There is no visible option in the phone to change that setting. I had to download Samsung Band app to set it to prefer wifi and bam.... now it is enabled. I'd still like to know WTF the Pebble is doing with VoLTE though.
