That will NEVER happen.

I'm in the Detroit metro with unofficial LTE. I got LTE on my gnex most everywhere. Different story on this device with the tri band. I can force LTE, but then I can't get texts or phone calls. I did however go a about fifteen miles north last week and LTE was working automatically. I am optimistic it should be working here soon also.

Spark in Dallas
I'm in the Dallas area and have enabled all 3 bands for LTE but don't see anything other than band 25 on my N5. I've changed the priority and all that jazz but nothing changes.

Major disappointment as I got this phone for the tri-band service that was supposed to be so awesome.

I really hope the firmware update this quarter is a real thing and I hope they hurry up with it. Tired of the terrible reception and LTE speeds in and around Dallas. My wife has the S4 and she gets better LTE coverage and speeds than my N5.

I'm in Houston and we have spark here.

As for the N5 no go with all three bands enabled.

I did however get atxt from sprint that says "Over the next month the new network will be largely completed in your area making it better than ever! http://sprint.us/network1 Replay S to stop"

Hit that link and no real info.

Also we have found that the update for the N5 will enable the two extra bands and a new APN. Still trying to get the APN from the Flex since it will be rolling out with Spark enabled. I think that is all we will need but don't quote me on that.

The Nexus 5 and LG G2 are going to get their Spark Updates sometime in the future, hopefully soon.

If you really wanted to take advantage of Spark ASAP, you should have gotten a Samsung Galaxy S 4 Mini, Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, HTC One Max, or the new model of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 (Model number: SPH-L720T).

For the Nexus and LG G2, I read somewhere that LG was having problems with getting Triband LTE to work properly, but the G2 is supposedly getting their update by the end of this month. That should be a good sign that our Spark update is on the way as well, though the Nexus update needs to be pushed by Google.

Lol... Just like every other single phone in the world out there... You can't get an update that doesn't exist yet.

And what do you know... The LG G2 Spark update is OTA ready right now!
LG G2 Updates

The Nexus 5 shouldn't be too far behind, but again, it's up to LG and Google.

Band priority 41,25,26

a reboot always loses connection to band 41. Update prl always gets it back for me.....even though the prl version stays the same per the phone status
