RE: Problem with Nexus 5 in rural area
Thanks for all the info!
Ok so I just updated the radio firmware to the latest as mirroronthewall suggested.
No difference so far.
One more thing I may have made a mistake regarding the APN.
The only APN is Internet / MMS for wap.tracfone & mmms.tracfone.com.
I made the mistake of trying to create my own LTE APN (which is disabled). But I can't delete it, rather the phone reboots with enabling both APNs??? How do I delete?
This is not just a coverage issue, but a StraightTalk & TMobil decision of some sort.
There is 3G / 4G coverage here but my phone is denied on the tower over our house.
I have a used Kindle Paper White here I bought used as a gift (and preloading with Gutenberg) and it has full bars on 3G here.
Problem with Nexus 5 in rural area
I flashed a Nexus 5 without much difficulty thanks to the UBPorts application.
I'm getting 4g connection, and even 3g I think, when I am traveling around our area.
But when I am home I have zero connection even though we are 'covered' on the TMobil map.
Working with support I squeezed out the following fact:
"T-Mobil(or MVNO) will not support this phone on this tower in your area less than 4g"
Please let me know what I can do.
1.) Try the OnePlusOne instead?
2.) Flash the phone back to Android to activate first, then flash back to UT?
3.) Adjust APN settings further?
When I activated the phone StraighTalk told me the phone is not allowed only a SIM connection...
While traveling I adjusted the cell connection to be only 3G/2G and the connection icon says 'E' but I don't know what that means?
Will the PinePhone work with UT?
