LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

Recommended Posts

It sounds like it messes up Android Auto. And also you can't easily set the do not disturb mode without messing with the calendar so it's not as easy now :(

 

I'm very interested if it'll stop the vibrating during a call when you get a text.

I noticed that the phone did not vibrate when I was on a call about an hour ago and got several texts. 

On another note, the ##DATA# >> LTE screen now shows the CA settings set to "TDD 2CA DL Only" ... what gives??!!?? Has been a 3xCA phone since the day it came out. @lilotimz any idea?

Are there any changes in the way SCP behaves?

Yes I'm curious about this too.

As long as you have the MSL code you can go in "edit" and make any changes.

Sprint has refused to give me my MSL or I would have made changes a while ago. The phone also supports 2xCA on B25 and that has never been enabled.

Really? I've never had an issue getting an MSL from Sprint. I just do a chat and say something along the lines of "Hi. I factory reset my phone and now it's asking me for something called an MSL. Can you help me with that?"

If a rep won't give it to you, just try again with a different one. I actually just got the MSL a couple days ago for one of my devices that's on a corporate account that I don't have access to... Took 2 tries though because I didn't have the account PIN.

It does depend a lot on the rep you speak too.  I had many who flat out refused to give it to me.  It's also why I like buying my phones from Best Buy.  They will give you the MSL as part of your paperwork along with a copy of your sales contract.  

Of course it hasn't mattered on my Note 8 since the MSL is all zeroes.

They do? Is that something that gets emailed? I've never gotten any paper work from Best Buy, I've bought my last three phones there.

Nope, the last three or four reps I talked to flat out refused saying there was a "new policy" that prohibited them from giving a MSL to a customer.

So did they end up breaking the 3xCA on this phone?

I don't think so. The engineering screen still shows PCC, SCC and TCC connections, and shows all three DL EARFCNs when on B41. Speeds didn't drop either. Think the ##DATA# screen is wrong.

I got a 707.3 MB Software update today.

It says it improves camera features and Android assistant (google Lens). Optimizes performance & includes android security updates.

After the update my phone rebooted then said LG G6 ThinkQ then went to a white screen and got stuck on the White screen with the word Sprint and the Sprint Logo above it. After 15 minutes on that screen I couldn't take it anymore and I held the volume down and the power button at the same time until it rebooted again. The update finished after the reboot and the phone is fine now.

Has LG announced pie for any devices? I would think the G7 would see it first.

There hasn't been any device manufactured to make such a bold statement but if we're only referring to LG then the G7 thin Q and v35 thin Q AKA Android One would be the first to get pie.

    • Sorry, I wasn't clear, the Evergreen Hospital MM setup I already located a while ago. The eNBs for those were: B6BD7, B6BD9, B6BDB. I meant for the cluster of MM which I can't locate in Kirkland. Just like Totem Lake and the John Muir school, there are three MM nearby with their eNB separated by 2 digits and one reports as an MM/SC. As expected, SE03XC353 tends to overwhelm them in most normal areas, making location more difficult. It seems that their job is to fill in the "shadows" for SE03XC353. My guess is all three are located at the aforementioned Clear site in Kirkland, but I am not 100% certain on that yet. I will drive around to see if I can collect better data on CellMapper. As an aside, it seems like it is common in a cluster of three for one of them to report as an MM/SC on SignalCheck. Even the one I found which had the last eNB off by one, instead of two, still had one of them as an MM/SC. 
    • Yes, Sprint was required by the US government to decommission all Huawei equipment due to security concerns.  Sprint has historically had issues with the property owner of that Motel 6. It was one of the last sites upgraded to LTE, and it will probably be one of the last sites upgraded to triband.  That permit is for the Clear site by Kirkland marina. There is a mini-macro setup on the roof of Evergreen Hospital by Totem Lake.

    • That makes sense, I said "loves" strictly because I have encountered so many of them near me. I didn't know about the Huawei aspect of things. They are very well located normally, providing coverage for weak spots from the "main" tower.   As for Evergreen, that would make sense, it's a high location in what has become a VERY busy area. I am guessing that is why the tower over on the Motel 6 nearby has not been upgraded. Also, that is good to know about all of the MM clusters. That combined with this permit makes me think that I am correct on the location. The only thing I need to determine if all three eNB are at the same site.
