    Google Pixel 2 XL by LG Preview/User Thread

    I figured out that we can connect to the Passpoint Secure wifi network by manually specifying AKA as the authentication method. I'm assuming the same works for any other Hotspot 2.0 provider that Sprint has a partnership with. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Yeah it is. East of Sacramento Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Does it drop the call when you move outside of wifi coverage? Or does it continue the call over LTE? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Data issues with Us Cellular roaming

    For what it's worth, with the November update, T-Mobile roaming works on my Pixel 2 XL. I didn't see AT&T roaming tho. The last I had seen it was in June, and I think it may have stopped working for a bit after that until recently. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Actually, yes. Those are some of the fields that actually work in the engineering screen. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. That's probably not actually Clearwire B41, but it is the Clearwire PLMN. That is T-Mobile roaming, which is treated as native and doesn't count towards your roaming allowance. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  7. On Sprint, if memory serves, the 3 is exactly the same as the 2, except you get non contig B41 CA, which Sprint hasn't deployed yet to my knowledge. Same number of MIMO streams, same QAM, no UL CA. The modem is capable of more, but Google cheaped out on the RF front end so it's not capable of fully utilizing it.

  8. Use an app like Signal Check Lite or Pro to see who you're roaming on. It's possible that it's T-Mobile roaming (shows as Clearwire), which is treated as native (ie not throttled with no usage limits). But the phone doesn't know that it's native, and shows roaming. T-Mobile roaming was recently turned on. You can also just set your SMS app to always download messages while roaming. I know Google Messages allows it under Advanced settings.

    Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc

    Go into settings and see what apps have permission to draw over other apps. Disable or uninstall any that you don't use. Or, if it's not an overlay, press the multitasking button and see what the most recent app is. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Agreed. In my case it's because 1x is insanely congested, and I've had to stop using Sprint all together for phone calls as a result (since I can't understand anyone and they can't understand me). I'm going to be really pissed off if they don't enable it for the Pixel 2. So much so that it might cause me to switch carriers...

    Absolutely none. FCC certification needed for VoLTE, but there is no reason for no wifi calling on the Pixel 1 and 2. It's literally just a config file with the proper parameters. Same with VoLTE if they would submit the recertification. No special or different software Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  12. CDMA is overloaded and congested in many cities, to the point of being unusable. Especially as they've refarmed spectrum. Calls are practically useless for me in SF and Pittsburgh, with 25% of the call cutting out or robo garble. It's fine in more rural areas where there isn't congestion. I've actually quit using my Sprint number and give out my Google Voice number for use in Hangouts or VoIP. It works well enough over LTE, and I can at least understand the other person. VoLTE can't come soon enough. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Googled for "opt out Android beta" and this was the first result https://www.google.com/android/beta Looks like it should work (I never enrolled in the beta program). Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Only if you revert to stable. Right now there is no beta, and you're on the stable channel already. You have to reset only because downgrades aren't supported. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  15. I replied to your Reddit post. But so others here know, it's an issue with eCSFB and IMS on the Airave. Devices which maintain SRLTE don't have the issue, since calls and texts go over CDMA instead of LTE. I have a ticket open about it, but so far they can't find anything wrong. Been a problem that has been ongoing for months, and I know other people in different markets with different devices and accounts have the exact same issue. It affects all phones that rely on eCSFB and IMS instead if SRLTE. A "solution" is to block the LTE ipsec tunnel on your router's firewall. In my experience, blocking access to 68.31.0.1 and rebooting the Airave resulted in just CDMA and no LTE. That being said, if your non-SRLTE phone can pick up the macro LTE signal at all, it will almost certainly never use the Airave. I don't believe that macro eCSFB will setup a call via the Airave.
