Greetings from....an hour east of Nashville

I could say Cookeville, but its one of those supposedly 'little no-name podunk towns' that forumites elsewhere on places like Engadget like to gripe about being on the recent 100-list while far more major cities are notably absent thus far.

 

Anyway, been a lurker for about 2+ months or so and finally decided to register as well as donate to the site. Just recently upgraded from the Epic 4G slider to the new Moto Photon Q and anxiously awaiting LTE's arrival here. Just noticed today I'm now showing eHRPD here on the phone...hadn't really looked much lately at my status screen, but I know when I first got the phone 2 weeks ago, I was working that weekend in Nashville (where I bought it) and was still getting EVDO there (northwest side near downtown). So looks like the prelude has started here at least.

 

The ironic thing for me is that I switched to Sprint from AT&T because, at the time I switched, AT&T hadn't even put in 3G access here yet...and the I-40 corridor runs right through here, which continually baffled me. And now it looks like Sprint will beat AT&T here with LTE too (Verizon's already live in that regard). So I already have been happy with Sprint, and now look to be even moreso in a few months.

 

One shout out for any Photon Q owners that perhaps weren't yet aware, but XDA has dedicated forums now for the phone, and thanks to shabbypenguin, the ability to root the phone followed 8 days after release.

Hah, I opened this thread just because I wondered how close to Cookeville you were! :)

 

Lived there for a small section of my life growing up, but it was a good section. Shout out to you from SW Missouri.

    • 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.
