  1. Seem likes much of this site is gone. No map updates from Rob. I need to know what South Bay Market is like now. I left Sprint for magenta pastures back in March of 2015. Would like to see if it would be worth returning.
  2. I signed up via your link, how soon will I be able to download the app? I'm anxious to try it out.
  3. Either the battery is bad or maybe it's time to wipe and reflash the phone. The battery life on my Nexus 5 on lollipop actually rivals that of my iPhone 6.
  4. 2 minutes?! I remember jail breaking ios5 required reinstalling the iOS software after doing the jailbreak. ( shows how long it's been since I've owned an another iPhone.)
  5. Well this is exciting. Just wish it could be put on the app store. I would love to test this app too but I don't like having to jailbreak my phone. its too time consuming to do and from the little bit of research i have done for the iOS 8 version, it seems like Windows machines are still the preferred computers to do this (I am currently on a Mac, the Win7 machine is in storage).
  6. Habit to shorten Robert to Rob. Unless you are being serious and don't know who Robert is either.
  7. Just waiting on confirmation from Rob but I think the switch for LTE in Gonzales has finally been flipped. I was getting full bars a 1/4 mile from the tower. Although I don't get LTE from home. Exciting
  8. found another page. http://androidandme.com/2014/09/news/rip-sprint-nexus-5/
  9. I have owned a variety of phones over the years including WebOS, Android, iOS, Windows Mobile and Windows Phone. For me iOS, Vanilla android and WebOS have provided the best user experience. With the possibility of the next Nexus phone not being Sprint compatible, I am quite disappointed. I have mostly enjoyed the Android experience. The best being that of Vanilla Android on the Nexus. Sense and Touchwiz haven proven themselves as unstable, likely due to the OEM modifications. IMO vanilla android has been very stable. Because of this (and other factors) I am hesitant to purchase another O
  10. I too can say this is the only permanent fix. Flash an old radio. I used the one from android 4.4.1. After a few days of using it, I switched back to the radio for android 4.4.4. No issues anymore but that's because I haven't been swapping between the Sprint and T-Mobile SIMs. I have had my phone set to Global and also to LTE. No problems anymore. I believe it's a bug in the radio firmware that causes the phone to try and connect back to GSM for voice. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
  11. The 3G drops are likely caused by capacity issues at the site. Where I live there is only 1 site that services the town. Prior to the NV equip, 3G would not drop probably due to having more carrier cards. After the NV equipment install, I started having even worse 3G speeds and lots of drops. Its been almost a year and this site still doesn't have LTE. In other locations where there are a lot of people and poor LTE signal, I will have similar drops when on 3G. Other times in less populated areas, the 3G doesn't drop at all and data works really well. So essentially it's just insufficie
  12. I think connecting and dropping EVDO is not an issue of the phone. It's a cell capacity issue. I live in a town that only has one cell site and is only 3G accepted. Speeds are horrible and I do lose the EVDO connection. But everywhere else the EVDO stays connected. On a side note, it appears the cause of the issue I was having is the radio baseband version. The one for android 4.4.3 and 4.4.4. have a bug that messes up the CDMA radio when switching from a CDMA SIM to GSM and back. Flashed the radio for 4.4.1 and its working fine now.

  13. The issue returns upon rebooting. I have to either run a PRL update or reboot the phone in 1x mode otherwise the 1x part of the radio is disabled. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
  14. I think my phone has taken a crap. Every time I reboot the 1x part of the radio disables unless I put the phone in 1x mode beforehand. also the disabling will happen at random during standby. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk Edit: so I did a PRL update via WiFi when the 1x is disabled and like magic the radio starts functioning normally. Could it be a bad PRL? I'm on 55020.
