I sent mine for repair. They replaced the PBA (print board assembly) which the guy says is the motherboard. Initally as soon as it reloaded I was in 4g! It then switched to LTE. As soon as I made a phone call it switched to 4g (I don't think it was capturing VOLTE) and wouldn't go back to LTE. I restarted my device and it went back to LTE and VOLTE began working as well. Since then it's been working fine, switching to 4g in low signal areas appropriately and switching back to LTE as it should. Fingers crossed that it's finally fixed (it's been 48hrs).
I just changed to band 17 and LTE is looking strong. I'll keep you guys updated.
Is there any way to disable band 4 entirely? What if I select every band except for band 4? I'm just curious as to why we are going with band 17 only.
Im really getting tired of people not being able to get ahold of me and me having to reset my phone a couple times a day as I drive around the city alot. I love my samsung s7 and I like rogers but unless this issue gets resolved soon I will be either never buying another samsung or will be switching another carrier that has no issues with the samsung s7 connectivity. BOTH companies should put there thinking caps on and get this resolved.
It isn't a fix by any means. You won't lose service and it will be LTE but there are downsides like you can't call 911 since that requires 2g/3g calling and where there isn't any LTE you won't have service. It is working for me and i have yet to lose service. I've let Rogers know of this issue and that this is the issue plaguing the system and they where like holy crow you found it. They're testing it themselves and will let me know by next week. Keep u guys updated...
