    LG G5 User Thread (LG-LS992)

    Various reports have stated since February That the LG G5 is to get the Android O "Oreo" update. On July 4th versions were released for Korea. Then the Sprint LG V20 got the update. A few hours ago T-Mobile said this: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-37249 My guess is Sprint is not far behind.
  2. 5G is the truly unique item for Sprint. Do they have enough cash to make it fully work in a few markets? Ideally you would want all sites with Massive MIMO, which would be best done in a market where Sprint has all the B41 spectrum. If they do just a handful of sites in each market, people will quickly see through that and only the innovators will buy 5G phones.
  3. The nail that sticks up gets hammered down. Within 6 months both Verizon and AT&T will have answered this*. Sprint improves in so few places that it does not cost the duo much to answer each one before the public catches on and Sprint can reap significant rewards. Such a reply is much more difficult with T-Mobile since they have significant cash flow. * I have seen this happen many times over the years. Still improvements like this should be celebrated by us Sprint users!!

    So far we have found a grand total of one Massive MIMO iirc.

    Sprint often poorly covers nearby rural towns or rest areas (Shentel does a much better job with this). These rural areas are likely where much of the site reductions will be made because you can not afford too many sites given lower subscriber density. This will also work the other way in terms of expansion. Twice as many users will make a site viable. The urban areas will have site reductions just given the bulk of the sites are located there. Co-sites will likely be consolidated on one rack if possible and re-aimed. Same with the other retained sites. Small cells for coverage will need to be moved, possibly true for those providing better indoor coverage.

    If Sprint had more cash, I am sure they would be deploying 5G ready B41 equipment instead of 8T8Rs.
  7. Yes please. I and most other users in Ohio have turned off logging and/location at one time or another just by handling our phones. Quite frustrating/humiliating for those with only one phone. Embarrassing for those with more.
  8. Personally liked Ingenium's idea that liberal LTE roaming should only be used while on VoLTE to keep a call from dropping.
  9. Perhaps they are using the Clearwire PLMN because it is B2 rather than B25. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk

    Note 9 rumor thread.

    For me it will depend on price, the s9+ reduced price, versus waiting for 5g phones in January.

    Small cell

    Some small cells are for extended coverage while others are for rf shadows including building interiors. Look for hospitals, big box stores, and resturants. One of ours is for an extremely popular candy factory store. Also try to get out of the path of the host b41 signal. We have also had small cells not turned on for many months even after the electric meter is installed, so check the meter to see that it is drawing power between visits (the amount of power used is very small so it is unlikely you will notice a change while standing there). It can take 15 minutes for your phone to notice a small cell. Once found, your phone will then find it quicker in the future.

    Great job. Finding Massive MIMO deserves its own Premier Thread for the first few sites of each type. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
