Issues with the release of 905

I updated my Bionic 30 minutes ago.


I live in an area with very strong 4G signal


I have already seen data drops the 4G signal goes from BLUE to WHITE.


I have done a re-boot of the system with a battery pull and still have seen signal drops.


I will monitor this with my phone and update with more info


 


Have you updated your phone and are you having issues?

Re: Issues with the release of 905

Updated at 1 a.m. EST and immediately noticed data issues. It is doing the same drops before the 902 update. I live in a 4G area and was running great on 902. This is definitely a step backwards. But I will give it a couple days before I try a factory reset.

Re: Issues with the release of 905

Before you go and do a factory reset, and to others having data issues, try the following steps first.


  1. Power down phone, pull battery, SIM card, and memory card.  Leave it for a minute.

  2. Install the battery (no SIM or memry cards) and boot up.

  3. Wait until the phone completely, and you see emergency calls only notification, then shut down.

  4. Pull the battery, and install the SIM, and memory card.

  5. Install the battery and reboot.


In other forums this processs seemed to have helped quite a few people with data issues on 905 as it is supposed to redownload the PRL settings.

Recommended:  After pulling battery...hit the power button to release any residual energy in the phone's circuits.

Re: Issues with the release of 905

I have the 905 and have not noticed any improvement: going from Wi-Fi to 3G/4G stays white, I can't browse the internet or get email, switching to airplaine did not make a difference. 


Switching to CDMA only, I then get blue connection and am back to browsing and email. Switch back to 4G, it stays blue.


I have done the battery pull with SIM removed and power up stuff, no real difference. I did not try the power button to release residual energy. I will give that a try once.


I live in an area that says it gets 4G according to the coverage map.

Re: Issues with the release of 905

I have tried the battery and memory pull this morning.


One thing I have noticed already, I have used 12% of my battery in an hour.  I have the extended battery. 


It will be interesting to see how the battery power goes today.

Re: Issues with the release of 905

As always with a new flash, the battery drain is a little faster, it should get better within a day or two.


Could it be that we really use the phone more right after a flash?


Not sure.
