    It was a huge pain for me on Caltrain. I'd be tethering, so I'd lose data. I'd have to toggle airplane mode, then re-enable tethering. And then wait for my laptop to "rediscover" my phone and reconnect. Easily a minute of work would be lost while I wait for things to be back to normal. And with 4 tunnels, it's a lot of work or a long wait...

    This finally is fixed for me in the March update. Amazing how quickly the phone gets LTE after a tunnel or elevator ride.

    Looks like Carrier Services got updated for me today via Google Play. I wonder if that's how update gets pushed?

    That's a big update. I wonder if along the way the fix the problem where phone won't do LTE after losing signal due to a tunnel or an elevator getting stuck either roaming on TM, stuck on 3G or not having any data at all.

    What's 41A vs 41B vs 41C vs 41D ?
  6. Could you give WiFi a try and see what results you get on it? (Bonus if you can try 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz, since I could only get it to connect to the 2.4 GHz channel to my Google WiFi).
  7. What constitutes a business customer? Would an HOA which would want one to cover basement of thousands of residents constitute as a "business customer"?

    *sigh*. Must have been a fluke. Problem persists...

    I usually encounter this after my Caltrain goes through tunnels. This morning i was pleasantly surprised to see my phone still connected to LTE. This seems to have come out after/independently of the Dec update. Has anyone else noticed improved there?
  10. On your phone without modifying the network stack - area that's pretty locked down. But there is a standard that would allow carriers to use Wi-Fi frequency for downlink. Not sure how I feel about that, since Wi-Fi bandwidth doesn't share as efficiently as LTE (at least not until both phone + router are Wi-Fi 6).

    Yep. Unlocking is really fast and reliable. It's almost too reliable since i sometimes hold my phone with palm touching the screen, and if I wave it at the right angle, it'll get unlocked and my hand will be activating things on the screen.

    I had that problem with my Pixel 3 XL a month before I got my Pixel 4 XL. I'd just get an error on the eSIM side. They made me reset network settings - which sucked since none of my Wi-Fi networks were restored on the Pixel 4 XL. - there's some posts from me about that on the Pixel 3 forum. I think there's something bad in the way the Pixel 4 XL is entered into Sprint's system in a way that's not fixable. You might need to get a physical SIM and hope for better luck on Pixel 5 XL.

    I've got the same exact problem. Because I need to take an elevator anytime I leave my place, I'm always outside with no-service since sometime phone will even refuse to roam (or maybe TM isn't available). I'm worried it's one of those things where Sprint will blame Google and Google will blame Sprint. I wish there was a group chat where I can have both support folks arguing with each other.

    Yup. Both worked for me within minutes of completing eSIM setup.

    No problems for me and do it many times a day. I do find the new phone taking longer to find LTE after going through the elevator or a tunnel. And even then, it gets stuck on 3G.
  17. What's the software version you have on your Magic Box Gold? I'm on one that looks like an invalid IP address: 15.16.00.663 / 60.11.63.0
  18. But thought we concluded that 5 GHz doesn't work anyway. How's 2.4 GHz?
  19. Living in an apartment has no impact on whether you can scan for 5GHz.

    November security update strangely delayed for many Pixel 4 owners, how to sideload https://9to5google.com/2019/11/08/pixel-4-november-update-delayed-sideload/

    Of course. Where else can you check the security level? 😎

    Is it just my Pixel 4 XL that's still running with Oct 5, 2019 security level? I haven't gotten any updates since setting up the phone.
  24. I'm in a high-rise on 7th floor of a 40 story tower. There's another tower across the street though and I think I sometimes can pick up my MB from the sidewalk.
