OnePlus One and CM12S OTA update
Answered

Has anyone received an OTA update on their OnePlus One via Ting? I've noticed a lot of chatter on Reddit about the new Cyanogenmod 12S update for the OnePlus One rolling out OTA updates last week (starting April 14th). This is also confirmed on both OnePlus and CM blogs. 

Over the past few days, I've been periodically checking and no update or notification of such has come on my OnePlus. I assume with this being a phased rollout, I just have to wait my turn.

But I mainly wanted to post this to see if any other Ting user has gotten the OTA update, or query Ting if there may be a technical snafu keeping the OTA update from rolling out on Ting?

(note: I do know the update can be flashed manually, but I'm asking to see if this, and future updates, will need to be updated manually or if they will come through OTA.)

  • I got mine but I cannot connect to 4G lte anymore, and constantly lose connection with the ting network. I didn't have this issue until the update.

  • Had the same issue with being unable to connect to 4G LTE.  Had to setup the Ting APN again.  Follow these steps to resolve: https://help.ting.com/entries/93259447-Completing-Activation-for-your-OnePlus-One-GSM-Only

  • I actual just got my notification of the update this last weekend. I'm hesitant to do the update to 12S because of issues I've herd others having on Reddit. Any of you having any issues, other than a fore mentioned 4G LTE reset?

  • Robert Sawka: Those instructions are for 11, not 12. I did them and still do not get 4G LTE indoors. Just EDGE and sometimes EDGE with "no data connection"!!

    Other than that, 12 seems fine.

  • You are correct, these are the steps for 11 but there are no changes in version 12 that would impact these settings.  Thus making these steps still valid.  If IPv6  is causing issues try IPv4 and IPv6 instead.  Don't forget to reboot after applying the changes as well.  I can only speak from my experience and applying these settings resolved my 4G LTE issues.  Hopefully you can get them to work for you as well.

  • Robert Sawka: I followed those instructions and it worked, I have LTE back.  But now I have a bug on my lock screen saying I have "no service" but I have full bars and I can still send and receive phone calls and text messages.

  • Manuel, go to the T-Mobile coverage map and enter your actual address. Then click on it. I got a pop-up that said "TYPICAL INDOOR CONNECTIVITY - Satisfactory connectivity in some homes".

  • A little off topic, but...

    I'm waiting on shipment of my OPO, and am wondering what your experiences have been with this device and Ting - should I be worried or full of happy anticipation?

  • @Jim Hopkins, My only complaint would be switching to GSM. I was on CDMA (Sprint) before I got the OnePlus One. So switching to GSM (T-Mobile on Ting) my coverage changed a little. New "hot and cold" signal spots to learn. But that's minor. Everything else has been perfectly fine.

  • @Louis Dhority - Thanks for the reply. I'm also changing from Sprint, but I anticipate BETTER coverage, Sprint is pretty sketchy around these parts. Just got the phone minutes ago, setting everything up now. A new phone is like Christmas, isn't it....

  • My problem is that when the OPO cannot get T-Mo's 4GLTE signal, it steps down to EDGE (2G)!!!! T-Mo and I have been batting this around and they say that they will have stronger 4GLTE by the end of 2015. Does anyone know why the OPO cannot get a 3G signal? Is it them or T-Mo??

  • Sorry to slightly necro this, but I'm wondering about the 2g as well (which only usually happens when you put a TMO sim in a verizon phone). I just ordered a OPO. My wife has TMO service with her work phone, and it works very well in the house. I get 1 bar with Ting on my phone in the house (1st gen moto g, still a good phone, I just cracked the screen a few times, and the extra 4 I bought can't be activated now, thanks sprint), no chance of reliable data (I have wifi, obviously, so it's not a big deal, but I do miss a lot of calls). I'm starting to lean toward the somewhat secret $30 prepaid TMO plan...
