    4G Information
  1. Nexus 5 user in Wauwatosa here. Since I got the "Your new network is ready" email today, I'm curious if Sprint's work in the greater Milwaukee area is nearing completion. Thoughts? Opinions?
  2. My N5 has been in and out of LTE the past week in Wuakesha but the past 48 hours it has been consistent. At Moreland and 164.
  3. First time I've gotten LTE on my phone at my house on 60th and Lloyd. I think the Hawley Rd water tower is broadcasting.
  4. First time I've gotten LTE on the N5 within city limits. Milwaukee is lighting up!
  5. Sitting in my folk's living room in Edgerton picking up 1x800 from tower near Milton. Co Rd M and I 39/90.
  6. Haha I was in Merton when that happened! I was at a client's location and heard SignalCheck go off and was like "what the hell?" Saw the 1x800 and did a couple fist pumps.
  7. Handset: Nexus 5 32GB Black Google Play Store LTE connectivity: Can't connect unless forced in engineering screen. 3G is strong. (Galaxy Nexus and HTC Evo 4G LTE connect just fine.) Location: Waukesha, WI 53186 and Milwaukee, WI 53214 (I've only been able to test on purple towers "4G only")
  8. I guess I should have phoned support instead. First rep transferred me to teir II biz tech support, submitted ticket to engineering, guess we wait. The only reason I do chat first is because they usually direct me in the right direction. I don't expect them to resolve anything.
  9. I just got off chat with Sprint about not connecting to LTE. Looks like it is a known issue with Google Play bought devices I will keep you guys updated.
  10. We don't have B26 or B41 in my area, just B25. My N5 won't connect to B25 unless I set it under dial code 4636 (phone info) and change it to LTE only. Then I can only get data and no voice. What's weird is that when I toggle airplane mode, it says LTE for a second, drops, then connects to eHRPD. Sprint says wait til tomorrow. I'm not holding my breath. For those who have rock-solid LTE, what band are you on?
  11. My LTE works when I set it to "LTE only" under Network Mode under the dialer code *#*#4636#*#* (what is the name of this screen anyway?) But of course if I don't have LTE I don't have any service. When all settings are default and I toggle airplane mode, it connects to LTE for a second, then falls back to 3G. Any ideas? 32GB Black.
  12. I live in Milwaukee (no 800) and can't get it to connect to LTE unless I put "LTE only" in the *#*#4636#*#* screen. This causes problems when roaming between LTE and 3G towers. There's like 3 different places where you can change LTE settings. 1) Under mobile networks in the settings 2) Dialer code *#*#4636#*#* 3) Dialer code *#*#3282#*#* So 3G and LTE work for me, but I don't know the ideal settings. What are you guys changing to get LTE to work normally in non-800 markets?
  13. No. The last time I was charged an activation fee was when I signed a new contract to get the S2.
  14. I'm activated! I got a SIM from a local corp store. Called (888) 211-4727 to activate. Gave her the IMEI (minus the last digit) and the ICC ID. Up and running in 10 mins. Let me know if you guys need help.
  15. Just picked up a SIM from a local Corp Sprint Store. Called ahead, gave them the SKU, said it was free. Stopped in and the guy who I talked to on the phone was "in training" but wanted to help me out. Some neck-beard repair center guy said they would need to activate it on a phone at the store. I told him "I wish I could activate it here, but I have a SERO (employee) account and can only do it through employee sales." I guess that's all he needed to hear. I got my SIM, and now I'm waiting for the UPS truck. Good luck, all.
