Was in olathe, ks and by 5 nv towers and had almost no luck with lte. Did have 4g pop on for 2 seconds and before I could launch a speedtest went to 3g, then back to 4g one more time then 3g. This was on santa fe between kansas ave and hwy 7. Try more parts of kc next Sunday.

Did you try toggling lte on and off?

The bastards are still blocking. I think they really are in no hurry to unblocked before the EVO is in customer hands. Although a part of me thinks that they won't light up LTE until an OTA for the EVO comes out.

Man I hope my EVO comes in at best buy soon. I will be up in Gardner and Olathe and want to sniff out those LTE waves (that is if they have been unblocked).

the EVO LTE will need an OTA update before the LTE on the phone works (i believe, correct me if im wrong)

I have no confirmation when the OTA Fix for LTE Connectivity issues is coming. I don't think its possible to have been taken care of prior to leaving the factory. However, it may prompt you at activation to update.

 

If the update isn't ready yet, I would love for a member to go to one of the Athens LTE sites working to see if they have LTE Connectivity issues with the EVO LTE.

Can any other KC area members confirm that eHRPD is down today Monday 6/04? Only NID 00041 (KC-LENEXA-MSC_1) and NID 00042 (KC-LENEXA-MSC_2) seem to be affected. eHRPD is restored upon crossing back over to NID 00043 (KC-INDEPENDENCE-MSC_1).

When I got in my truck from working out, I looked at the phone and the 4G indicator was on. :) It must have been on that tower only, when I drove away, it changed back to 3G. The location was 135th and neiman in Overland Park, KS.

Did you run a speed test while you were connected?

Excellent, with me getting lte the other day as well and the other poster in houston in the other thread, now this one, it looks like the official launch is right around the corner. Hopefully

Yes, I ran a speed test, they have some tuning to do. It is like 512K download and 4mb upload. No those are not reversed. I was surprised too. I have download netmonitor so I can tell what tower I'm connected to next time. :)

I would be surprised if NetMonitor will tell you which LTE site you are connected to. It will likely tell you the 1x/EVDO. And the chances of you being on a different 1x/EVDO and LTE site are pretty high.

 

But I'm interested to see what you find out using NetMonitor.

Well I was back in the area this afternoon, definitely must be testing, because when I got there it was 3G service. After going into the store and then getting ready to leave, it switched to 4G. Net monitor showed connections to 3 different towers at times. All in a circle around me. I will do netted next time capturing logs and speed test.

Update: Didn't think 4G was on this morning, but after working out, I was driving home and 4G popped up at 135th and Switzer. I turned around and stopped in the St. Andrews golf parking lot. Net monitor show the network type as LTE, but I could find a pen fast enough to write all the info down, but here is the info when connected to same tower eHRPD

kckid, you were not connected via eHRPD, which is just a variation on EV-DO. The data speeds that you measured -- both uplink and downlink -- are impossible for an eHRPD/EV-DO Rev A single carrier. So, you were connected via LTE. I investigated the site at 135th & Black Bob last night. Here is a screen cap of my EVO LTE connected via LTE:

Not sure if the new EVO folks know but hold the power and hit home to take a screenshot. No need to write anything down.

Also Power + VOL Down works on EVOlte.

Can't get that one to work for me. Maybe the onscreen menu button removal/remap makes it not work.

Awesome, didn't realize that worked as well. I figured it was just specific to the gnex, so maybe the power volume down thing is a standard ICS feature.

Make sure you hold both buttons down for 2 seconds or so.

It's a little tricky until you get used to it.

I think so. Because my E4GT started to allow that after I upgraded it to ICS too.

    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck. 
    • Yesterday, I saw a post on Facebook from an old friend about the Evolve III Maestro, a $60 laptop (at Micro Center) that apparently has an LTE modem in it.  Specifically, the Quectel EC25-AF*.  The nearest Micro Center was sold out of new ones, but offered open box at $48.  So for $51 after tax, I walked out this morning with one.  An absolute steal. I backed up the Windows product key and then put Kubuntu 22.04 on it.  I spent a lot of time today trying to get the build tools installed so I could get the wifi module installed and running, and once I did that, I pretty quickly got to sending it modem commands, which I've never done before.  I don't have a SIM in it yet, but it does seem to function as it should.  (I figured out the command to get Timing Advance values out of it, but without a SIM, I doubt it would have such values.) Now I'm trying to puzzle out how to write some kind of script or small program to use it for logging purposes.  I think I've worked out how to send commands to it from bash using socat, but I need to pick specific commands to run.  I'd actually like to replace some of my phones with this if I can get it to record cells, with GPS, and cycle through a set of bands repeatedly.  My current phone collection consists of 9 phones other than my main S21FE, and they require babysitting while I'm logging.  It'd be nice to pare that down to a more reasonable number and let the computer do the work, hopefully in the back seat with less babysitting. - Trip ===== * Per the spec sheet, it supports B2/4/5/12/13/14/66/71.  That'd cover all of Verizon and US Cellular LTE, all but B29/30 on AT&T, and all but B41 and Sprint Keep on B26 for T-Mobile. 
    • More bizarre.  I just updated my other Ace without issue. - Trip  
    • Looking over the data so far, bidders can go back and reopen bidding on licenses that appeared settled. In the list below, not all counties are listed and only states with excess demand.  Typically 3 licenses per county for rural areas and some urban areas. Here is how many licenses per state had demand greater than supply: State count AK 3 AL 14 AR 3 AS 6 AZ 9 CA 12 CO 76 DE 6 FL 10 GA 66 GU 3 HI 3 IA 99 ID 47 IL 39 IN 43 KS 231 KY 23 LA 14 MA 5 MD 16 ME 1 MI 86 MN 9 MO 79 MP 12 MS 73 MT 69 NC 26 ND 109 NE 18 NH 13 NJ 6 NM 51 NV 24 NY 13 OH 29 OK 9 OR 30 PA 24 PR 25 SC 20 SD 83 TN 76 TX 236 UT 49 VA 22 VT 5 WA 65 WI 59 WV 26 WY 29
    • Looks like Dish has already taken back the 5x5 of n71 they leased to T-Mobile, and instead of narrowing NR here T-Mobile has gone for broke and made 600 NR-only. They can afford to do that here thanks to B12, and don't need to do that west of here because they weren't leasing 600 from Dish. Does mean that Dish is 10x10 for n71 here (which explains the 30ish Mbps upload peak I saw yesterday). Darned speculators hogging the remainder of the band So T-Mobile is running 140 + 15x15 MHz sub-6 NR here. AT&T is 40 + 15-45x15-45 (15x15 n5, occasional 15x15 DSS on n2 and/or n66 though I haven't seen both in the same area). VZW is 60 + 15x15, with the latter being n2 DSS. Wonder how soon VZW will try n48.
