All of the iPhone 5 Field Test LTE Screens

Recommended Posts

Okay, here are almost all of the screens available on the iPhone 5's Field Test function. All of these were taken at one time just at the foot of the Trophy Club, TX water tower, right behind Sabre HQ off of TX-114.

 

IMO, this is a strange location for a tower, as Sprint also has a 300 ft tower less than 2000 ft away. My assumption is that this one is designed to serve Westlake's Solana complex just across 114 -- but I can say that I can't get LTE over there.

 

I ran SpeedTest, RootMetrics and Sensorly -- quite a variation, but all were fast:

 

Test Date: Sep 24, 2012 1:58 PM

Connection Type: Cellular

Server: Fort Worth, TX

Download: 8.31 Mbps

Upload: 8.91 Mbps

Ping: 177 ms

 

External IP: 66.87.97.6

Internal IP: 30.120.181.6

Latitude: 32.9863

Longitude: -97.1672

 

(The field test images will follow later in this thread).

It's hard to believe that performing one speed test on Sensorly used 45 MB of data.

No, I composed on a PC. It's probably the hosting service (imageshack)

and resolution I selected.

Okay, I added the pictures back again in thread messages 1 & 3 as full size... You'll need to refresh the thread, but then you should be able to see.

As an S4GRU research request, I need several iPhone 5 users in Sprint LTE coverage to post screen caps of the following Field Test screen:

 

IMG_1982_575px.png

 

Tracking Area Code must be visible in the screen cap.

 

Then, at the same time and location, do likewise for CDMA1X with SID and NID visible in the screen cap.

 

Any takers?

Happy to oblige. I barely get LTE service in my office, hope this helps.

Easy peasy. Any hints at what you're looking for?

Is there a way looking at the iPhone 5 field test screen to see if a site is using SMR 800?
