We've received testing that confirmed the worst, this causes problems setting up the data connection on the Pro 5. Both SIMs return to 2G when it is installed. Thanks to everyone who helped!

https://github.com/ubports/ofono/pull/11 reverts a commit that prevents CDMA from working on the Nexus 5 and in-progress ports. However, the reverted commit states that this could cause problems switching radios or restoring settings.
Please install this commit using the following commands over adb:
sudo mount / -o remount,rw wget https://ci.ubports.com/job/ubports/job/ofono/job/xenial_-_reenable-cdma/1/artifact/ofono_1.18.0+ubports2+0%7E20200102001855.1%7E1.gbp3c8453_armhf.deb wget https://ci.ubports.com/job/ubports/job/ofono/job/xenial_-_reenable-cdma/1/artifact/ofono-scripts_1.18.0+ubports2+0%7E20200102001855.1%7E1.gbp3c8453_all.deb sudo apt install ./ofono*.deb
Then, reboot your device.
If you have a single-SIM phone, try setting your connection to 2G only, 3G/2G, and 4G/3G/2G. Reboot between each of these changes and ensure your changes are kept.
If you have a dual-SIM device, switch from one SIM to the other and reboot. Ensure that your settings are kept.
RE: PayPal donation returned
@magdesign, I've created a new topic from your post. Please don't bring back very old topics, it makes it more difficult to find the new content.
Thank you very much for your donation! However, was it set to "pay for goods and services?" In this case, the transaction fee is charged to us and PayPal tries to get us to send a product in return. This process requires manual review. It seems that this was missed in our account, I apologize for that.
If you choose to send this payment again, please let me know what settings you have set for it and when you put it through. Then I can get someone to check on our end. Thanks!
RE: GPS don't work on Nexus 5
This is a common issue that people experience with Ubuntu Touch. Because we do not use WiFi or Bluetooth beacon location services like Android, it can take a long time to receive a location on your device.
Please see this information to get GPS working: https://docs.ubports.com/en/latest/userguide/dailyuse/location.html#time-to-first-fix

@GizmoChicken, I see, I came off too direct in my message. It's the German heritage, after all.
I'm not trying to say that you shouldn't make suggestions, but rather I'm responding to that single suggestion, saying it may not work out, and giving reasons for why. It's that position that I'm coming from, and only because Pine64 operates so differently from most organizations.
I keep the "if you want it, you build it" motto because, quite frankly, it's true. Maybe someone will make a dual-boot option, maybe someone will make an Android option... until those images are out, we can't promise anything. Making those promises and not delivering on them would make people upset. Meeting suggestions with silence will make people upset. I see now that responding to those suggestions will make people upset. There's no winning.
It is a position of frustration. Frustration that we know these things would make it more likely for your average Joe to buy the phone, but knowing that we can only promise what the device is right now, not what it could be if only we did something different. So maybe it isn't right for the average Joe, but it's right for us. And we'll keep making it better.
I'd rather tell you why things aren't realistic, even if it deflates your excitement, so you know what you're getting into with your purchase.
Also this is the UBports Forum, there is also the Pine64 forum if you'd like to stay up-to-date on all things PinePhone and discuss your suggestions. You might get a more useful response there: https://forum.pine64.org/
If you'd prefer I not respond, I guess that's okay. Sorry for being a bother.
@mirroronthewall, the main problem is the price. For what you're paying for a PinePhone, you can get a far better Android phone (new or used). If you want to run Android, it's just not a good purchase.
For example, a Pixel 1 which can run the newest LineageOS can be had for under $100 (shipping included) in the US. The PinePhone is not a compelling offer as an Android phone with those numbers.
