I just got the 4.4.3 on my Nexus 5. I live in the area of zip code 60555.
How can I tell that my Nexus 5 is connect to Spark?
I did *#*#DEBUG#*#* on my phone and it's not connected to the Spark band.

I recommend you to download signalcheck pro from the play store. And try not to judge the network based on one location. Some towers or serving cells are not properly setup for spark so your phone might knock you down to 3G if it senses a problem. It does so to retain voice service and you don't miss calls. I found my nexus 5 work perfectly on spark in some areas and some areas will knock me down to 3G even when I know LTE is available there. The update is letting me know how immature the network is in some areas.
No icon change. Only sprint branded phones receive an icon. The nexus is an unlocked Google device. The icon change would have to come from Google.
jh2480kim, which bands are you showing the phone is connected to, specifically? Also, after the update, did you try doing a profile update and ##SCRTN# with WiFi turned off? Sometimes that can make a difference.

springfield ave and north ave 60651 and as well as dearborn st and lake st 60601 those are the to major area I am daily and having these issues. I also do not have Spark enabled on my device. I have a nexus 5 on current 4.4.3 (KTU84M)
VM indicator not workiing was a known bug in 4.4.2. I spoke with a rep on the phone yesterday who said it was fixed in 4.4.3. I'm still not seeing it. Any quick fixes?
