I love apple as much as the next iSheep, but this is ridiculous. Htc is not even a threat to them. Just kicking them while they are falling. Apple is really petty. I thought with jobs gone, this would end.

 

 

I wish apple would follow Microsoft and just license thier patents. Hurt the manufacuters by taking a slice of their profits, instead of trying to destroy them( which is not working).

Apple & HTC were told to resolve this issue peacefully. I don't understand why they can't come to an agreement. Talk about a frustrating nightmare. But with Apple having over $100 billion in cash in the bank, I don't see this ending anytime soon.

As an avid Apple user (my VZW iPad 4G is sitting next to my OG Epic, near the 2007 iMac I'm typing this on; my 2009 MacBook, recently upgraded to 8GB of RAM, is also nearby)...Apple is being petty.

 

If their hardware is so awesome (in the case of the iPad, it is) and they can stay ahead of the competition, they don't need to litigate. People can tell the difference between an iPhone and a competitor before someone even turns the device on, and Apple is eating any single manufacturer up in terms of sales/market share. What are they complaining about?

 

Personally, I hope that HTC, Samsung or Motorola come out with some awesome innovation, patent it, then force Apple to play nice on cross-licensing when Apple wants to get into the game. It's not like Apple hasn't copied from other manufacturers before...the pull-down notification bar in iOS 5 is very, VERY similar to the notification shade that has been in Android since its inception. Then again, it's kind of tit-for-tat; Google copied Apple's multiple-apps-in-one-icon UI element with Stacks in ICS.

 

Maybe, from Apple's viewpoint, it's sad that they have to actually compete for customers with Android devices that have superior hardware specs (though iOS tends to be smoother than Android despite these specs). But for the rest of us it's a very good thing.

 

Also, I'd rather have an Android phone than an iPhone. Fragmentation notwithstanding. For one thing, I love me some AmazonMP3 (as an actual app, not their web app that works on iOS). For another, even with the iPhone's awesome keyboard, a 3.5" screen is pretty darned small for doing useful stuff. It almost feels like an upsell for the iPad at this point :P

I expect HTC and Samsung to attempt to block the iPhone 5 if they still use the same notification system. That threat might get Apple back to the negotiating table.

    • Update just showed up for both of my phones. So far I don't notice any difference, LTE TA is still reporting as 0, I was hoping the new routine might fix that. I sent a diag report from both phones in case you need any of that info. I'll let you know in a day or so if its crashing as frequently or not. 
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta release is rolling out now, and should become available on Google Play shortly! Some notable changes: New "swipe to refresh" -- flick down on the main screen, and the data will "refresh" -- I put this in quotes because it will *not* force the modem to be polled (that's unfortunately not possible), but it will 'wake up' the app and display the latest information if for some reason your screen did not automatically update. I am still working on improving this. New cell identification methods for Android 12+ devices -- new routines are available in Android 12 and this is my first attempt at implementing them. I have not seen any changes positive or negative on my Pixel 6, but hopefully someone sees improvements. I will continue exploring these methods and adding new features as I get them working. Location service auto-restart -- if your location has not changed in 10 minutes, the background location service should restart itself. This is a work in progress that I intend to optimize during beta testing. Missing/invalid TAC values included in web uploads -- this will need some testing, because I can't replicate it myself. The option to log cells with missing TAC must be enabled for this to have an impact. Feedback welcome as always!
    • Another converted keep site: Sprint eNB 9436 -> T-Mobile eNB 895067 (40.60777246698788,-74.16199692361377) Looks like they're using the FFVV-65A-R2-V1 here, as well!   Edit: Also, I know this technically isn't NYC, but here's a Jersey City conversion. Not 100% sure on either eNB. Sprint eNB 105863 -> T-Mobile eNB 876452 (40.72265196811989,-74.08804945021805)
    • More confirmations incoming! T-Mobile eNB 880561 (40.74176835140717, -73.88364207139453)   Sprint eNB 6191 / T-Mobile eNB 880065 (40.71339007010928, -73.85695387371624) Confirmed this site but was unable to get a photo because the antennas are set back from the edge of the building. I could see them from super far away but there wasn't a good area for me to pull over and snap a pic.   Sprint eNB 6189 / T-Mobile eNB 877995 (40.71183894845567, -73.83529788316665)   Sprint eNB 253741 / T-Mobile eNB 875537/875538 (40.70170960850086,-73.83302208208359)   Sprint eNB 79912 / T-Mobile eNB 875989 (40.86349197342981, -73.923456682535) — — — — — T-Mobile eNB 880536 in the Bronx isn't a Sprint conversion but rather, T-Mobile changed the eNB when they upgraded the site. The nearest Sprint site at 40.8150405321864, -73.93010756429787 still has all of its antennas up and is literally within spitting distance of two other T-Mobile sites in an area that's very industrial as opposed to residential or commercial so a keep site isn't particularly necessary. You can see on Cellmapper that the old eNB stopped broadcasting about two days after the new eNB went live.  — — — — — Also wanted to add that I spotted AT&T C-band antennas quite a bit in both Queens and the Bronx. I would expect a summer C-band launch announcement from them because they're moving FAST. At least in my area, it seem like they're upgrading at a faster pace than Verizon is. Some more pics: AT&T eNB 116408 / T-Mobile eNB 42887 in Woodhaven. This one is interesting because T-Mobile upgraded this site but in the process didn't put any Ericsson n41 antennas. There are just two of the RFS antennas that we normally get.   AT&T eNB 112047, bad pic but the arrows on the billboard are pointing right at the C-band antenna lol   — — — — — Last edit I promise: I noticed T-Mobile submit a permit to convert the keep site I found in Staten Island (Sprint eNB 75141). I 100% guessed it's location since I connected to it literally 4.5 miles across the water while inside a building. Glad to see I was right!
    • Support for the -1 TAC is good to go now, so I'm ready whenever you are!
