    Is that when your next upgrade is or just commenting on the speed of Sprint's deployment?

    I think he's referring to upgrade eligibility. Either way, Tri band is good news for the Sprint Network.

    You got that right.
    Very interested to see how it works in practical use.
    Once all bands are active, of course.
    That it is in the G2 makes the phone even better.

    The User's Guide was for the Nexus 5, not the G2.
    Pretty close variant though.

    I'm not positive but I think the tri-band is 800mhz, 1.9ghz and 2.5ghz and I don't see the 2.5 ghz mentioned for the N5!
    The N5 already has a -1 for me because of the smaller battery but was still thinking of it, but If it doesn't have tri-band this will make my decision to get the G2 so much easier

    But they didn't even get it right. It has nothing to do with the phones not able to do SVLTE. Sure, they can't do that because of a design choice to have only one radio as a way to save battery.

    It is about CFSB and eCFSB. Certain markets do not support it, but they seem to indicate that Sprint doesn't care. I can assure you that they do.

    Not only that the article, and certainly the title, seem to indicate this is everywhere across the whole Sprint network. It isn't. If I recall correctly, S4GRU says 60 - 70 percent of markets handle this just fine with more and more everyday.

    EDIT: I was a little off, here is what the article says:

    Currently, just over 60% of Sprint sites have their sites upgraded to new Network Vision 3G standards which allow Circuit Switched Fallback capability. However, not all 60% of these sites are currently allowing LTE to work on a Triband device. These all should be capable of using LTE on a Triband device now, or in the next few weeks. Many of these markets will need to have their MSC Switch Centers software upgraded too for CSFB to work.

    From the way I understand it, if the tower hasn't received the 3g upgrade, the triband phones won't stay connected to LTE. Sprint is working on this, it sucks, but it'll great when fixed.

    That would be nice. It seems a bit odd to have this brand new phone with great specs and not be running kit kat

    From what I'm reading, the G2's Spark update is in final testing and it's being run on Android 4.2.2. So pobably no kit-kat with this Spark update.

    The Open Source code for the next software version is on LG's website so the OTA update should be coming soon.

    Wait for the update to hit someone's phone, then they will either post the update link to Google's server or the update zip itself.
    You can then take the file yourself and apply the update. As long as you haven't modified any system files, it will pass and update everything. It's like forcing the OTA early.
    Thanks to digiblur.

    Specifically, this is the open source code used to build the binaries that are then used to update the phone. There may be additional non-open bits that will be part of the update. But seeing this posted means the official update is complete and awaiting staging and roll-out from Sprint. Since this update enables "Spark," there may also be network configurations that are needed before Sprint wants to go live.
