Anyone lose service from the recent storms?

 

We had bad storms come through Friday June 29th in Ohio and lost power.

 

Sprint and AT&T has very spotty service now. Usually 4 bars of 3g. I only roam now and most of my calls fail.

 

It's 96 today and still no power, AEP says possibility of power restoration on July 8th.

 

Storm damage at my house...

Well towers usually have back up batteries and a generator or something like that from what I've heard else where but it might be cause of the tower went down or something fell on top of the equipment or something of that nature.

No you need a PC to do this. Here is the link for updating the PRL. What you can do is flash one of the 1111x PRL's which is a standard Sprint PRL but it allows 3G roaming instead of 1X so you could flash one of those PRL's and download Roam Control for $3.99 and force roaming when you need it. I just set it up on my EVO LTE yesterday with PRL 11119 and can force roam to Verizon with 3G when I need to. Works much better than flashing an actual Verizon PRL because you can go back and forth on Sprint and Verizon without flashing a new PRL each time.

    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
    • I believe one of the merger conditions was they had offer to sell it to Dish.  EDIT: Oops didn't see that this had already been answered.
