Iphone 5 Network Screen

So this might be a dumb question, but how do I find out what the network strength is and to know if an iPhone 5 is connected to eHRPD? I have an android phone so I know where to find it there, but I have no idea on the iPhone 5.

 

 

Thanks for any help.... looool.

Dial *3001#12345#* and it will take you into Field Test Mode. I am not sure how to tell if connected to eHRPD in there but that is what you are looking for :)

I just did this on a i5 and it does not display eHRPD. I got to see 1xCDMA and 1x. Neither of these sub-menus showed eHRPD. I am in the ABQ market. Perhaps eHRPD was turned off now?

i remember seeing Robert say that he was no longer picking up eHRPD on the abq a couple days ago.

I was without eHRPD for about 8 hours yesterday. But it came back around 3 PM. I have been on eHRPD all day here in Los Alamos.

If I get eHRPD will it show up on the field test screen on the iPhone 5?

 

Apparently, the iPhone 5 has no screen to show network type. The only way to get any network information is the Field Test screen, and that doesn't show eHRPD.

To be clear, EV-DO and eHRPD are the very same airlink. They differ only on the backend. Along those lines, EV-DO IP address ranges tend to be different from LTE/eHRPD IP address ranges. So, that may be one way to tell the difference on a handset that does not report eHRPD.

Tested this out. There is no "CDMA only" for iPhone 5, so I just checked my IP via Google with LTE on and off.

When LTE was on, I got 66.87.83.30.

When I turned it off, I got 66.87.83.10.

Maybe the iPhone 5 connects solely to eHRPD regardless of LTE switch status? I know I'm on eHRPD because I'm in an active deployment market with multiple LTE sites within a mile of me.

Well if you are connected to the same tower for LTE and 3G then you should be using the same gateway, etc. Even where the older 3G cabinet isn't switched over or upgraded simultaneously, I think they are still moving all backhaul over.

 

Even if you aren't, there's no reason they can't just be trying to keep your handset on the same IP address to avoid interruptions with streams, VPNs, etc during handoff between cells. Compared to modern router memory, keeping the several million IPs of individual customers within a market individually routed isn't much of a burden. Someone with more knowledge of how those network cores work could probably shed more light on it... Been a long time since I've messed with router configurations and telcom stuff.

    • I wish carriers did spectrum swaps as often as they did in the past. Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile could easily swap and fix this issue. AT&T can take the entire PCS A-block giving them a contiguous 15MHz as opposed to the split 10+5 they currently have, Verizon could take both the D and B block and keep the contiguous 20MHz they have now, and T-Mobile could take over the E,F, and C block which would give them a contiguous 30MHz with the G-block. I wouldn't be surprised if Verizon is the only holdout in this because this swap would benefit AT&T and T-Mobile but would leave them in a net neutral position as their 20MHz of PCS is already contiguous.
    • They have the intention, as the equipment they're deploying supports n26. The transaction has not yet happened, T-Mobile is still in control and using the spectrum on some Sprint keep sites.
    • Did they declare their intention to buy band 26 from T-Mobile. I know that they have the option to buy it but do they have the money or the intention to buy it? Are they leasing it right now?
    • Just cycled through here and there's a Sprint Keep Site within range with 25+26+41. 25 is still 10x10, while 41 is the same 10 MHz at the top of the band that I saw at the airport on Friday night. Speeds aren't great, but signal isn't bad, so my guess is that they turned up the power on the site vs. where it was before (B26 is -101 RSRP and I know the site nearest me is gone). Will be downtown for fireworks tonight, so will see how networks perform. I have mmW-enabled VZW and AT&T SIMs to play with.
    • I believe they have made a few attempts, but I don't think there has been a large scale effort so far.
