Hmmmm, "LTE Scanning Improvement". Would this help this the terrible 3G? Even if we have LTE turned off? If not, this update does not seem to address the two major issues I have seen discussed on this board:
1) Terrible 3g
2) Constant sense resets
I'm performing a hard reset, but what's missing that I have seen immediately,
Oh, but we did get the ability to modify the Recent Apps button to also function as a Menu Button.
Settings > Display, Gestures & Buttons > Recent Apps Button
I just installed the HTC update 2 hours ago. I have confirmed improved 3G signal strength and stability using the "OpenSignal" app. I would say I would post the data but I do not have the exact baseline numbers to compare it to. Whatever improvements they made for 4G stability also affected 3G stability/reception as well. FYI...prior to this update, I had horrible 3G reception. And yes I performed all steps outlined by others to try to fix the problem. My guess is that HTC did make 3G improvements to the code that they are not telling anyone, for whatever reason. Anyway, I now have recpetion inside my work. Thank you HTC.
Update: Better 3G reception in LTE/CDMA mode, and gone is the jumping between towers issue!
Do you have LTE on where you live ?I don't so 4G means nothing all I have is 3G some sites come up faster but streaming music is still not that good for me.Unless you have LTE use CDMA mode only annyway.
I do not have LTE in my area. I totally agree that "in theory" CDMA should be the proper choice. However, the raw data does not support this. I have roughly 10 to 20% signal strength increase when I leave it in LTE/CDMA mode.
Been streaming SIriusXM for two hrs now with no interrrupts on a 42% signal strength.
I got the CMDA "theory" from the setup recommendation's from Sprint when the phone came out.You only have 3G like I have in Vegas if I'm in a good area streaming works but in some forget it.How are you measuring the signal strength ?
