Oh, and also LTE on Band 26 and 41 to support the new Spark network
LG G2 owners on Sprint are set to receive a software OTA today that enables Sprint's "Spark" LTE on the handset. That means you can now utilize Band 26 and 41 for LTE, giving you theoretically higher data speeds, provided you're in one of the few Sprint Spark markets.
Unfortunately that also means you'll have a new data indicator in your status bar (see picture on right). Gone are 3G and 4G, you'll now see a constantly spinning star next to the signal bars. Interestingly, that's the case whether you're actually in a Sprint Spark market or not, which rides the line between ridiculous and annoying.
Also included in this update is a fix for Hangouts related to voicemail and MMS messages, which is always good. If you have a Sprint LG G2, be on the lookout for the OTA starting today.
