    Default My S5 will not work with Sprint Airave while in LTE/CDMA mode

    My Galaxy S5 will not connect with my Sprint Airave (network Extender) if my network mode is set to LTE/CDMA. I have to manually change it to CDMA. I had an Apple 5 and I never had to change my network mode back and forth to connect with my Airave and it was always on LTE.

    Does anyone else have this problem and found a solution? I called Sprint and they tell me to manually switch it. This is a real pain in the @$$!!!

    Does it automatically switch back to CDMA/LTE? Or do you manually change it when you go from place to place?

    You could use Tasker to switch it automatically. Or you could bring the phone into Sprint and ask them to resolve the problem.

    You have to manually switch it. I tend to forget to switch it back to CDMA when I get to the house and miss phones calls. Sucks!

    If it's in the CDMA/LTE mode it should be auto switching though...

    That is what I thought but I called Sprint support and they tell me that I have to manually switch it myself to get it to work with the Airave. Ridiculous.

    Oh, OK. I think the Network Extenders for T-Mo and Sprint (maybe the other two) only boost their respective 4G signals. That would explain why you have to use CDMA only.
