For a few weeks now since the merger, my data and cell connectivity is useless, especially at my home. Can't connect to LTE at all, unlike before when I normally had full bars of it at home that worked flawlessly. Can hardly use 3G, and if I can get it, it's only one or two bars that don't work at all, and in some places, I have no connection whatsoever and it keeps me from making/receiving calls and sending texts. I had this same problem when I went into town, but I stopped by a Sprint store, and they fixed that issue, but it didn't fix the one at home. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and haven't experienced this until recently, and I can't change services because I still have two months on my contract. But I'll probably be doing that in two months if this issue isn't fixed. I also have a cell tower right next to my home, so this isn't a problem on my end anymore. I've done almost every troubleshooting step I could find, and even visited a Sprint store.
Thanks for that info, let me check out your address to see if there are any outages at the moment. Also, since the merger we have given customers access to both Sprint and T-Mobile towers so the towers that you were using prior to the merger would still be supplying your device with signal. Can you please provide me with the nearest cross street and ZIP code to your location?
Lol it used to "work"? All of these issues are the same issues a lot (if not the majority) of users been having before the merger. The merger just made them a lil bit worse but these problems were already here, it just took T Mobile to show Sprints true incompetent towers/network
I also have noticed the issue where I rarely get LTE coverage, today from zipcode 21788, 21702, 21703,21716, 21755, ive been in nothing but 3G, sometimes barely that!!! Ive got S10 with the latest August patch. Ive rebooted many times, updated PRL and the profile. I had the network selection as Automatic, I forced to LTE and CDMA , no change. Sitting in downtown Frederick MD I have a -106 signal level on EVDO_A. Ive turned off VoLTE. This has been getting progressively worse over the summer, the last 2 days have been aweful.
Ok, I've noticed that my wife's LG phone isnt dropping into 3G like my Samsung S10+ , When my phone drops into 3G I will do a PRL update and boom , goes back into LTE. About and hour or so later, goes back into 3G again until I either update the PRL again or reboot the phone. Seems since i received the August patch that its been happening, not sure if its a firmware issue or bad phone. I've been in a private message with Sprint_FeliciaS from above, but haven't seen a response since her initial message on Friday.
Update: This trick seems to have helped me for now. From The Droid Guy.com
No 4G LTE signal fix : Wipe cache partition
Android depends on a set of temporary files called system cache to load apps quickly. If this cache gets corrupted or outdated, a device may suddenly lag, freeze, or show signs of slow performance. At other times, uncommon glitches may occur as well as overall performance of the system may also be affected. To ensure that your S10 has good system cache, we suggest that you clear it once every few months. Here’s how to do it:
for the majority of you running Samsung devices going back to the S8 series...this would be why..
