hi guys- just found this site after doing some online research regarding sprints upgrade. i'm looking to go from the nexus s 4g to galaxy 3 but i want to be sure i'll have better reception than i currently do with the nexus (horrible radio/ wifi) and trying to figure that out while sprint is undergoing these changes is difficult. while i don't understand a lot of the technical aspects here i'm trying and learning! thanks for the great information which i'm sure will help me make an educated decision!

I think you question would be better asked in the Devices/Samsung subform. This thread is regarding the Chicagoland Network Vision Upgrade

No, not at all. They couldn't be more different.

 

The GS III is on par with my Photon dbm, and antenna bar strength wise. Don't fear this device because it works as good as my photon in all situations including weak signal. The Photon is a bit better in weak reception areas where as the GS III is just as good!

    • What devices should do, and what they actually do, are two very different things! As you've probably heard me mention countless times, many of those screens get information in a proprietary manner directly from the modem; apps like SignalCheck can only get what the OS is reporting. I did find your earlier reports, and as I guessed, the OS was reporting valid signal strength. I will try to figure out a solution.
    • Service mode shows the SIM as having no service, so I would think the device should report that. I believe I sent a diagnostic report a little while back—can you check to see if you have it?
    • Interesting, that doesn't happen on my P7. Can you send me a diagnostic report the next time you see that please? Hopefully the phone isn't actually reporting the -115, that will be tricky.
    • Hey Mike—another dual SIM bug. If one SIM loses service, it doesn’t disappear from the app.  I’ve seen this a couple times—my Dish SIM will lose service (confirmed in service mode), but SCP won’t stop displaying -115 or so. And it logs a data point at that signal every time the location updates.  Along the same lines, I have a custom trigger set up for 313340 (Dish), and the custom trigger keeps firing when this is happening. 
    • TLDR: not really 😂 With dual SIM, initially I was struggling to keep the info from each SIM separate but updating properly. I figured out how to get each to update without negatively impacting the other SIM's process.. which caused those processes to run on separate threads. On some devices (notably your e5 Play), the OS doesn't like the separate threads updating the UI. But it was only a very small subset of devices. And at first, the crash reports gave the correct crash reason but it was pointing to unrelated parts of the code. Once I cleaned up some other bugs, the crash reports pointed me directly to what I needed.
