Long time lurker here, long time SCP user. FYI... I'm the guy in the bar that had SC on his phone! LOL
First, I just wanted to thank you for this awesome tool.
Second, I do have an occasional freezing of the app on my Galaxy S20 Ultra. It's usually when switching back and forth between the engineering screen to check CA, SCP, and the Speedtest app, to make sure it's still running. I have to go in and force close it to get it to run again.
Now for a question: how accurate is the distance from the tower in SCP? I've had a few times that I can't figure out where it's picking up a tower, and now that I think about it, it could be a SC. Since the S20 U is now on T-Mobile, there are no site notes for the towers, and I'm trying to figure out where they are!
So, I'm late to the party here. Columbus, Ohio market. I've had my S20 Ultra since a few days after launch (late pre-order) so I've been through the stuff mentioned through this thread. My issue is 5G. Before 5G was turned on, my speeds on T-Mobile were great! Maybe a bit slower than Sprint in a speedtest, but latency was better, and it "felt" faster. Then 5G was turned on, and I found out to check in the *#0011# service mode screen to see if n71 was working. It was, I was happy. Within a couple days, that totally changed. It seemed that I rarely got n71, and data was SLOW, maybe 1/3 of the speed as before 5G was turned on. When I do see n71, speeds are really good. For instance, 2 days ago, it was hitting n71 without active data transferring. Then yesterday and today, not even a blip of n71 when actively transferring. I found that switching the network mode to LTE/CDMA got my speeds back to good. It seems that I must get a profile update push when not looking and it turns 5G back on, or if I have to restart and forget to reset it.
Is anyone else seeing this behavior?
Just got off the phone with a Sprint Business rep. According to him the cell site nearest me is now running n41. Which explains why my LTE-41 speeds are a fraction of what they were a few months back. He mentioned a pretty awesome deal on an S20 if I sign a contract, with a $10 price increase per month in exchange for going from 3 GB of hotspot to 50 GB (which I've wanted anyway), so chances are good I'll bump up to the S20. Apparently it's still a Business Fusion plan so I don't have to pay $$$ extra per month for the phone either.
Anyone heard of a $55/mo (or $75/mo) Business Fusion plan with 50GB of hotspot? Any video/VPN throttling to speak of there?
You can roam on HSPA now. It will use it if there's no Sprint CDMA and no Sprint and T-Mobile LTE (or if you force it with something like NSG). But T-mobile is shutting down HSPA at the end of 2021 I believe. They haven't added it to any of their new sites in a while. They really want to refarm the spectrum.
