That could be true. I got 4G before in what is currently H+. It's just a different definition.

In the end, the carriers needs to change it to show LTE. Other then that, i really do not see why people are complaining about it showing 4G& NOT LTE meanwhile you get LTE speeds... I know its cool to show LTE but as long as you are getting the speeds, its all good. Rogers may just leave it showing 4G or change it to LTE at sometime.

Well at the very least it's confusing. I've never seen 3G on my phone up until this point. When I was in a low coverage area it always said "E"

Samsung Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update issues

Got the update notice yesterday and downloaded Android 4.1.2 over Wi-Fi and the update installed last night without any error messages. (I did not use Samsung Kies.  Update was handled by Android.)  I have encountered two problems with 4.1.2:

  1. LTE has not functioned since the update (I'm in the London, ON area). I went into the Mobile Networks settings and changed the Network Mode to "GSM only" to disconnect from the current data network.  (I also tried scanning for mobile networks which also disconnects from the current network.)  I then went back into Network Mode and changed it back to "LTE/GSM/WCDMA (Auto mode)". The phone first connected at GSM, then H+, then 3G and then 4G, moving up in speed as it tested the data network, but LTE never shows up in my connection status.  If I go into Settings / About Device / Status the Network says "Rogers", the Mobile Network Type says "LTE:14" and the Signal Strength is -108 dBm 32 asu.  LTE is available but the phone never switches to it.

  2. The other issue is with the "S Planner" application that replaced the previous Calendar app.  All of my previous and future appointments were imported ok.  My Contacts and Text Message history are there too.  The one thing that does not work is the Save button at the top right when I create or edit an event.  The quick save button that appears when I tap a date does save an event, but it uses a default duration of all day.  If I tap on "Edit event details" it opens a more detailed screen with Cancel|Save at the top right.  After I fill in the details, if I tap the Save button the background behind the Save button does change colour and does make the tap sound, but the event never gets recorded.  Same thing if I try to edit an existing event.  I can change the details but tapping Save just closes the window and nothng gets saved.  Very frustrating indeed.  Under Calendars I only have "My calendar" and "My task" checked.  (I unchecked the boxes for my Hotmail and Gmail accounts.)  I even turned off automatic syncing in case there was a sync issue.  Still no success.

Issue Number 1 is being discussed in the thread "Any release date for jellybean on Samsung S2 LTE?" It's believed that you are still getting LTE speeds but it's being labeled differently.

I use the GO Launcher Calender Widget so I can't help you with Problem #2.

Odd issue as a friend at work that has the GS2 LTE and updated to the Rogers JB firmward shows LTE on his phone...

Hello AnonymousUser

Can they take a few pictures showing us this? a picture of the JB update / model number & it showing LTE on top. I called a few Rogers stores & they told me after the JB update, LTE was taken down & it shows 4G now.

I'll ask, but not going to force them to do anything. 🙂

One note, my friend did the update via Kies and not OTA as when he checked for an OTA update, he didn't get notified there was an updated.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2 Jelly Bean update issues

I would have assumed that Jelly Bean would take LTE networks into account.  Lets hope that LTE is still up and that this just needs a simple patch to correct the notification area.

 

The S Planner issue appears to go deeper than I thought.  I downloaded Google Calendar and it has the same behaviour.  New events do not get saved.  I'll have to delve into Kies when I get home and see if I can backup my calendar data and then do a reset.  I set the app to sync with Google, but events are not showing up on the web calendar, so I'm beginning to wonder whether the database became corrupted during the OS upgrade.

Same thing happened to me here in Airdrie, AB. What used to be 4g is now 3g and/or H+.

Update happened OTA overnight Monday night.

Hello johnvan62

You do realize that not everything is Rogers fault right?.... MAYBE Samsung Canada took it down. No one knows until Samsung Canada or Rogers says anything. Also the reps at the store & over the phone have no idea about what happens in the back with the updates. All they know is the updates get pushed out.

 

In the end, this update has had a few things that have been taken out. It make come with another update OR they may leave this the way it is.

thank you, my mistake. I just assumed that samsung released the update to Rogers, then Rogers did what ever they do before releasing it to the general public.

Hello johnvan62

No you are correct BUT at the same time Samsung Canada can take things out if they wish. NOW for the face unlock it all depends on who took it off. With no one getting a exact answer, no one can really blame Rogers or Samsung. We have to assume or guess on who did it.

All updates are sent to the carriers. The carriers then add their bloatware & change a few things. Once that is done, they test it & make sure the phone works on the network without any issues. Once that is done, they release it. The problem is that Carriers take their time to release updates to us.

i have been in constant contact with both rogers and samsung. rogers has finally said that due to the high number of calls about  losing LTE issue, they have now passed this on to "tier 2" tech support who are currently working on it with an estimated time frame of a week. 

 

samsung has so far told me to do a factory reset which has done nothing to fix this issue, and now told me to contact their mobile specialists who are at this time not open. i will call them tomorrow during their business hours and see what they say about this. the live chat agent at samsung said surely the mobile specialists team will get to the root of the problem. we shall see...

So I did a speed test in an area of the GTA where I got LTE speeds before. I got 22mbs so that is easily considered LTE speed. 

 

I don't think anyone has anything to worry about, their internet connections aren't slower because of this update. 

 

I still contend it's an unnecessary confusion BUT you could say labeling outlying areas that don't have LTE as 4G is slightly somewhat dishonest. 3G/H+ is more honest. 

 

I suppose this is much ado about nothing. 

 

I'm still curious what people think about Google Now. I still don't have more than just cards following the Leafs, Weather and Traffic to get home. That's hardly revolutionary. I'm looking forward to getting a card based on what Google learns about me.

I see the same as everyone else with regards to the LTE, but to me that is a non-issue.  More importantly to me is the battery drain issue.  It my completely non-scientific method, my battery life is at least 40% less than with ICS.  I have the double battery in mine, and I can go from 100% to 40% in 4 hours of it sitting on my desk and me checkiong emails once an hour. 

Anyone else experiencing a drastic change in battery life?

 

On a separate note, can I go back to ICS?  If so, how?

I was wondering about the battery drain in mine as the first day it seemed to go down quite fast. However I took a look at what was eating up the battery and about 60% of it during that discharge cycle was the screen. I guess I was just playing around with it more - resetting up things that got messed up, etc. and didn't realize it. After that, I haven't noticed any significant difference in battery drain.

My screen had fairly his percentage but even more was TouchWiz (almost 40%), which seems awfully high

I updated via Kies and have LTE icon.

Oh! I hadn't even considered TouchWiz as being a big drain. I use GO Launcher so I'm not even running TouchWiz - that may be why I didn't see the drain mentioned above.
