Lest anyone using a G7 still and gets a system update prompt might otherwise get excited thinking it's the Pie update finally, it's not - April security patch update. (G710P15a) 

Yea I cry every time it happens. Just patiently waiting on V50!!

June security update hit my G7 today - G710P16a (extremely fast reboot/install on this one at that).  Still no sign of Pie unfortunately.

Right. Very frustrating.

Don't know when it will finally be pushed out (if it is - suppose its possible that's on hold if the merger is that close to done), but the post I made above yours shows the testing was finalized on the update at least.

Well it finally happened - G710P20d

Android Pie has finally arrived on the Sprint LG G7.  And VoLTE along with it. 

Nice.  My phone is updating now.

So when will we get Android 10? 😅

Technically its possible, the G7 was included on the list of phones LG was supposedly going to upgrade to it.  But especially with the merger on the horizon now, definitely won't be holding my breath. I'm probably going to get a used G8 and hand-me-down the G7 to my wife within the next year to get us by until we have to get a more truly T-Mo centric phone as the networks get integrated full bore.

Now that I've moved to the LG G8X, if anyone either still has a G7 or looking to pick up a used one on the cheap and would like a free used one of these SupCase Unicorn Beetle Pro cases, PM me - my wife (who will be inheriting the G7 now) prefers wallet style phone cases with a wrist strap, so I have no use for my old case now, but I highly recommend this series if they make them for your phone:

Finally moving on from my LG G7.  I have the rare Moroccan Blue Matte model only offered on Google Fi.  I loved this phone.  And it's beautiful.  Served me well since September 2018.  However, T-Mobile has buy one get one free on LG V60 models.  So I ordred two Dual Screen models for my wife and me.  It supports 5G on n71, n66 and n41.  So I am good to go!  Bring on the 5G's, please.

TMobile updated my LG G7 ThinQ to Android 10 today.  Pretty large update, but it downloaded and updated pretty fast.

Looks good so far.

Hopefully the update comes to Sprint soon.

    • 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!
