  1. As of today they have it. I'm sure Sprint's is coming. Given all the network issues, I'm hoping it's been well tested first.
  2. Yes, recently I've noticed this coming out of work occasionally. Normally picks up LTE right away, but a few times I'll start to stream music in the car and it'll just sit.....then I see it's on HerpeDerpa 3G (eHRPD) still for whatever reason. This also would happen to my S9+ too.
  3. Have you called sprint to see if there are network issues in your area?? The LTE issue doesn't kick you to 3G, it keeps you on a dead LTE signal, so I think you've got tower/network issues vs. the LTE modem burn up.
  4. huh, VZW getting ASD9 now reportedly, with the camera improvements (presumably night improvements). What gives, Sprint? https://www.droid-life.com/2019/05/21/verizon-galaxy-s10-family-may-update/
  5. ASDA out for Sprint phones. May 1 security patch. 186 MB.
  6. ASD8? That's what the Sprint thread is/was reporting.
  7. The newer phones (meaning not the first run off the assembly lines) are better with the issue. Just make sure you update to latest software immediately upon getting the phone. That should help it not get the data issues. Current software is still ASD5.
  8. Nope, not yet that I've heard. Obviously nothing pushed out.
  9. I exchanged my S10+ yesterday and yes, it was clear my device was having some issues with data transfer for sure. They didn't "test" it because they weren't a repair shop. They just handed me a new one and took my old one back. Simple deal and I was outta there in about 30 mins. I updated the new phone to the ASD5 right away and have no issues with B25, 26, or 41 in any areas. Everything is reporting successful speed tests (they're pretty miserable sometimes, but that's Madison, not the phone). I hope the update on the 30th can head off any other events. The word on the Sprint thread is that there is a RF transmission issue that burns up the modem, quite literally, so then it won't read anymore. Can happen on any band. The software releases are supposed to prevent this from happening. But if your device has succumbed to this already, you're hosed.
  10. I did some pretty extensive testing on my S10+, my wife's S10, and both my parents' S10s as they were visiting this weekend and my kids actually took a freaking nap!! As we traveled around, each device had a hard time dealing with any sort of B25 signal, as reported by SCP and by the LTE Engineering screen. B25^2 seemed to be okay, but any standard B25 signal was junk from a macro site. If it picked up B25 from a oDAS network, then the phones were okay on data sending and receiving as well. Reports over on the Sprint thread also have issues with the Note 9 in some cases as well. While all anecdotal, I find it really hard to believe that folks on this thread "have had no data problems". In fact, I bet you have, but it's pretty innocuous when it happens usually. It doesn't tell you that you don't have signal, it doesn't give any sort of warning....it looks connected with strong signal bars. SCP will report "idle" and anything that needs the network will timeout. Occasionally, I get the unable to establish connection circle with the slash through it....and a toggle of airplane mode will fix it.....but this has happened to me in the past here in Madison just because we have pockets still of dead zones that are unfortunately placed in areas you want your phone to work, like the Zoo. This all said, this really smells like a software provisioning problem and not anything to do with hardware and/or device swaps....in most cases. Or something with the towers themselves in communicating with these S10s and perhaps the S8s are reporting issues too in a few places. Most folks that are getting new devices are just reporting that those are going "bad" as well. I have no clue what's happening, but it seems pretty widespread if all 4 of the devices on my account have these issues. These all were pre-orders but from very different batches of SN strings and ordered well apart from each other. I just know that I'm not going into any store for testing or swapping out any devices until they have an actual fix in place for what's going on. For now, I've just disabled B25 and that keeps the data flowing and keeps the calls from dropping! I know it's not proper, but it fixes my issue in the short term. This is complete madness that they can't get a handle on it. There's supposedly another update coming on April 30th.
  11. Mike, this is a great update. I love the granularity of notifications now. This is excellent to track the issues going on with the S10 data dropping on certain bands.....You sir have created quite the app, thank you for your hard work!
  12. BTW, over on the Sprint thread about the data loss issues, they are releasing a "test" for this data issue to all the corporate stores. So if you think you are having data issues, head to a corp store tomorrow or after and they can verify your device is affected. I might swing by anyways and have mine tested. I'm not going to get a replacement quite yet if it fails. I'm not convinced they've got a single clue about how to actually fix this mess.
  13. Well, now I really don't know what's going on with my phone. I verified the lack of B25 data on what I thought were 3 different towers, but then on my way home today, I did get the dead data on B25 where I had in the past....but then I picked up B25 from another tower and it was sending/receiving just fine. Verified by SCP and by LTE engineering. So.....maybe we've got a bad tower or two here. This makes me quite happy if true. My B41^2 are around 70-105 down and 6-15 up.
  14. So this could be a network thing or tied into the data issues, but this morning driving in once I hit B25 signal on my phone, everything stopped. It said I had LTE but there were no actual data being transmitted. It then dropped to 1x and I had "N/A" being reported by SCP. I cycled airplane mode and it did not improve at all until I found a solid B41 signal. The area where this happened usually has pretty poor signal, but it bounces between B25 and B26 usually. This is normally a usable signal, not fast, but usable. My experience sounds pretty similar to those on the Sprint community thread with the data issues, but for theirs it seems like it never comes back even if they find B41.....so maybe it's a network issue here in the Madison area or specifically with a set of towers. I had not had any data issues prior to the latest update yesterday morning.
