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

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?

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.

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
