  1. Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

    Does anyone know what it does???
  2. Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

    Has anyone else noticed that, since the latest update, their GS7/GS7 Edge screen randomly "flashes", and then seems to revert back to what was on display 3 or 4 seconds before the "flash"?
  3. Is it really necessary to be insulting? Especially to a moderator? David is a "real" meteorologist, and also happens to have acquired a huge amount of knowledge about Sprint and the wireless telecom world in general. I don't know about anyone else, but I would be more tolerant of your opinions and posts if you would donate to S4GRU and then take some time to actually learn from some of the very informative Sponsor posts.
  4. SignalCheck Beta Crew Forum

    Beta results after Mike fixed the band identification bug. On my GS7 Edge, summary of 718 sectors sighted between 6/10/2017 ~1:00PM CDT and 6/20/2017 ~830AM, between Crystal Lake, IL, and Fenton, MO (mostly rural areas in Illinois along US-20, I-39 and I-55; mostly suburban areas around St. Louis): Clearwire B41: 21 sectors Clearwire B41A2: 24 sectors Sprint B25: 140 sectors Sprint B25A2: 28 sectors Sprint B25A2 10x10: 28 sectors Sprint B26: 142 sectors Sprint B41: 121 sectors Sprint B41 MM: 4 sectors Sprint B41 MMA2: 4 sectors Sprint B41 SC: 3 sectors Sprint B41 TB: 7 sectors (What are these: They aren't in the glossary.) Sprint B41A2: 178 sectors Conclusion: The recent betas are doing a very good job of identifying bands.

    I know the coordinates are there. It would be convenient if Mike could add the geolocated address.
  6. SignalCheck Beta Crew Forum

    I am about to give the Beta a workout, driving from northern Illinois to St Louis and back over 2 days. Should see lots of data. A thought: Mike, would you consider adding geolocation to the "strongest" latitude and longitude points in the data base? Doesn't need to be on screen, but would be very useful in sorting through the data base spreadsheet. Thanks again for all your work.

    And the verdict is . . .?
  8. AT&T 29/39 GHz and "5g" deployment are years away. Sprint 2.5 GHz is now, and is currently expanding, although much slower than most of us would like.
  9. Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

    I'm not using GMap sharing, or any other new features (that I know of). It just seems that since I did the update on 3/29, my battery life has gone to hell. Like SeanK, I'm charging twice a day. Or, I have my phone plugged in to a power supply or portable battery almost full time. Rather disappointing: Before the update, I could easily go all day and evening, and still have 40-50% charge by the time I shut down for the night. Now, if I'm not charging, I'll be in the 30's by lunch.
  10. Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

    Has anyone else noticed a sharp decline in battery life since the last update?
  11. I was 1 for 1 (Northwestern over Vanderbilt). Go Cats! (Yeah, I know round 2 doesn't look so rosy.)
  12. Plus, they'd have all the fun of dealing with Charlie Ergen.
  13. Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge User Thread

    Update went ok. WiFi calling failed after update, but healed itself about an hour later. Don't much like the revised Settings menus, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
  14. Most are robocalls placed from automated dialers that rapidly call entire blocks of numbers. They spoof the caller ID (illegal as hell), and are nearly untraceable. If they say your name, it is almost certainly a coincidence - they are dialing hundreds or thousands of calls per hour, and have absolutely no idea who they are calling.
