Is it bad if I use this third-party program?

 

 

 

Shows GPS locations of where I am, and tower I'm connected to, decibel level, signal technology (it said CDMA of course), and more information on neighboring towers.

 

It resembles the page on android phones that does similarly in terms of information given.

 

What app is that?

It's called Signal 2. You need to have a jailbroken iPhone with access to Cydia.

 

Times like this make me wish I had a jailbroken iPhone. If I had a computer I'd do it.

 

It'd be nice if jailbroken iPhones had the ability to map LTE on sensorly.

Me too! I just did the ##873283# on my 4S and it changed from 51094 to 4394. Pretty weird..

 

Were you jailbroken? I took the jailbreak off my 4S and afterwards checked my PRL and it was still 4394.

You don't have a computer or a friend's to use for like 10 minutes?

Something is seriously messed up. I am currently by a confirmed LTE nv Tower that is complete. Within 1000 feet. Have been here before and got 5 bars. Have tried airplane toggle numerous times. Can't get a LTE signal. I'm using signal 2 and it says I'm def connected to the site. Any ideas what's going wrong?

An evil tech is messing with you can shut it off ;)

That's like me with my EVO yesterday. I was in an area that was dark purple and wasn't picking up any LTE signal. I think the site had been turned off because when I got by my home I picked up the LTE signal from another tower nearer to my home.

Ok not a big deal. Just making sure my phone isn't broken. This happened by another site within a few hundred feet as well

That's usually not the case

I beg to differ. I have seen numerous posts on this site about accepted sites not broadcasting lte. There can be many reasons they haven't turned it on. The only guarantee you have from it being accepted is that it's ready to broadcast.

Nobody is questioning your intelligence. However until a significant breakthrough happens again in the wireless Industry I would expect those 20-30mb speeds to dwindle. Sprint has 50 million-ish subscribers & as more of those customers use LTE; speeds will go down. I could see speeds down to 4-12 average in big cities like yours. You have to remember that overall data demand is doubling annually right now and I don't foresee any decline in internet usage...any time soon. Luckily, Sprint is very capable to handle growth with its broad spectrum portfolio.

 

But we were done with that convo ......

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

    • Another Verizon C-band site, this time there appears it appears to be connected. eNB 84416  
    • I found this tower interesting too, but I think its an RFS panel next to that 6449. It's usually RFS+6488/6449 for Ericsson markets, Commscope+AAHF/AEHC for Nokia markets. Here is a similar setup, this time in Manhattan, eNB 45627. Looks like the same panel to me.   I am to blame for B41 not showing up on this tower. The eNB for B41 is located, but hidden, since no cells are shown. I passed this tower recently, and the J5 Pro I use for mapping B12/41 had a GPS glitch, and registered trails too far west, but parallel to Kings Hwy. With the trails and sector spread being too far west, I deleted the cells, with the intention of remapping B41 on this tower within the next month, as I will be in the neighborhood then. I'll make sure to add B12/71 too, which I haven't mapped for this tower at all. I think this tower was one of those midband only sites that finally got the full spectrum deployment. I could be wrong, but I don't think those antennas are still active. From the May 2021 view of Google Maps, all the new panels for that sector are at the edge of the building, with the other 2 sectors also getting updated, but they haven't changed positions. Wouldn't make sense to keep the old panels though, as they no longer have a purpose.
    • Band 41 Upgrades in progress in the Rapid City SD/Black Hills market as well as info on Sprint site transitions by EOY......we shall see. Hopefully this will be paired with NEW sites as T-Mobile is still at least 29 sites short of the other 2 in the Black Hills area....and DISH is starting to move in with sites. 
    • Dish moving into the Black Hills of South Dakota.......have seen 3 permits so far. Also, their are 5 NB-IOT sites that were put in back in 2019 that were basically part of a spectrum hold promise. I assume these sites will be transitioned as well.
