    Normally that is done automatically as part of the OS upgrade process, very weird

    I need to remember how to do that

    Pie is officially released, still hidden menus hang...

    Got the VM indicator figured out, somehow my account switch for the Voice Mail indicator got switched to off. A Sprint Rep was able to flip it for me and all is good now. On DP5 now, none of the Hidden Menus are working yet, PRL and Network updates hang.

    Note 9 rumor thread.

    If it was only available without TouchWiz, my Note 2 was one of my favorite devices!!!

    Sounds like you are connecting to a very over subscribed or under backhauled site

    My MB has been a life saver, best thing Sprint has ever put out!!! For those of us with no High Speed Internet options, wifi is not an option at all. A majority of people have access to High Speed Internet, but a majority of locations do not, i.e. living two miles outside of town.

    Negative, Android Messages has been rock solid

    Another issue is that I get no Voicemail notification icon when I have a voicemail. I forget to check when I have a missed call and i end up with six or seven VMEs for weeks ago. Can't find anything on this issue, anyone else experiencing this?
  10. B25 has been reliable over here, just a pain to shutdown the MB, etc. I wish the Hidden Menu screens in the Android P beta would work so I could change the available bands
  11. Any fellow West Michigan folks been having B41 issues the past week or so? Randomly B41 is just totally unusable for 15-30 minutes. I've noticed that my phone and/or magic box are useless. At first I thought my MB was flaky so I turned it off and B25/B26 was stable, however, my phone eventually latched on to B41 and went to a brick.

    Android Pie

    Is anyone else running the Android P beta? On Beta 4 now and i can't get the hidden menu via *#*#3282#*#* to edit anything. When I input the MSL code, it just goes to a black screen and hangs.eventually the app times out and I get offered to kill it. If you are just viewing the settings, it works fine, only editing causes issues. Perhaps an issue with newer security in Android P? Wondering if any of the other Android P beta devices have the same issue.
  13. Until the Android P beta, I kept B26 disabled on my Pixel 2 XL. Its over subscribed in all of West Michigan and essentially useless. Since the Android P beta, I can't get the dialer codes screen to ever open and change the settings. Luckily I have a Magic Box at home and B41 in Lansing is usually usable now.

    Wasn't that the point in NV1.0, the CDMA upgrade was in place long term to allow the data network to be built out, then in 10ish years (we are 6yrs into that), so we have in theory, another 4 years for full VoLTE deployment.

    Google voice integration going away June 1st

    No option, I keep checking. Apparently there is a way to force enable with root and editing some stuff, but I'll just wait it out.
