You can send it back, but don't just unplug it or you will be hit with a non-use fee. It's like $120+. S11...LOL...as if. 😉
Yes, thanks to all for working together to identify this issue and get it resolved. Now I have less of a reason to trade in my S8 for an S11 :)).
I'll also have to decide what to do with my Airave 4.
But it is sort of nice seeing all those LTE bars lit up :)). Will keep it for now - make sure the next security update doesn't take it away.
Since I spend a lot of time at home (am retired), I am just keeping the phone now with Airplane mode On and WiFi On. Battery life is amazing.
Hi @Em_Will_I_Am , I have Samsung S8 and with Sprint and still have this issue. How do I get G950USQU7DSL3 on my device? When I try to check for updates, it says "Your software is up to date". My current software version is G950U1UES7DSL2/G950U1OYM7DSL2/G950U1UES7DSL2. SECURITY PATCH LEVEL : DECEMBER 1, 2019. I am struggling with this issue for past 3 months, spent lot of time with sprint support, no luck. Please help.
Hi rupesh40. The The software version G950USQU7DSL3 or G955USQU7DSL3 for the 8+ was suppose to fix that issue.
Can you have missed some past update for the device? I've read a few articles with similar issues and there is the possibility that the device is a few updates behind. Have you tried to use Smart Switch? When downloaded onto your computer you can use the program to update the device as long as that update was pushed out to your device at one point.

During the update, do not:
You will not be able to place a call during the update, not even an emergency call.
Hi @Sprint_Juan , tried to update using smart switch. It says "Your device software is up to date : SL2". Is there any other way to get the SL3 on my device?
So, for what it's worth, the security update on my phone does end in DSL3 - the entire update is code is: G859YSQU7DSL3 and it said to be security patch level 1 December 2019. This is the patch that fixed the location timeout. I got it as an OTA download. I found a download link for it on SamMobile: https://www.sammobile.com/samsung/galaxy-s8/firmware/SM-G950U/USC/download/G950USQU7DSL3/309140/
