Update to CDMA Field Test to read LTE


Recommended Posts

This is great news. I may be headed to Wichita Falls in a few weeks. Would be great to test it out.

No LTE here to test but it looks like you could put your LTE signal number in the status bar. So you could see both 1x and LTE.

I installed it and travel through some heavily-covered LTE areas on my way to work, anything you want me to try out?

Sorry, new to the whole Mobile connection literacy. EVDO RSSI would be mobile data Signal Strength and CDMA would be voice connectivity? And if we have LTE would we still go by EVDO RSSI to see our LTE signal strength(separate of CDMA Strength of course) or would we look at another option or would the app rename that option to LTE RSSI or what?

See if you can have the LTE signal numbers in the status bar at the top.

Yep, it shows it! I didn't have time to compare it to the values in "Network" or "Phone info" menus, but I'll try that later tonight.

 

EDIT:

 

Dammit AJ, get back to work! :-P

Yes, you can toggle LTE RSRP to be displayed in the status bar.

That would be pretty useful.

It does on the Note 2.

I tried this new version briefly today on my GS3, stock running current Jellybean firmware. I went to an area with 4G signal, and I had 4G icon in my system Notifications bar.

 

The app showed the Data Type as "Lte" -- which I already knew from the Notifications bar. Sometimes is showed "Lte Cqi2147483647." This is apparently some buggy concatenation with some random string "Cqi" and Java's max integer decimal value.

 

But the app's "Lte RSRP" field always showed "null" while I had a 4G signal according to my system Notifications bar. And curiously, the app's screen displayed some dBm value for "Lte RSRP" when I only had a 3G data signal.

 

None of the LTE connections appeared in the log that was exported. (This feature is what I most want in such an app, because I can always see the basic LTE connections data by watching my stock LTE Engineering screen.) There is no display or logging of the cell/sector IDs that are available in my LTE Engineering screen.

 

I have not yet tried the feature to toggle LTE signal strength in the bar. (Didn't understand that feature at the time.)

 

Altogether, not a good first impression. It is called a beta, but it needs work for my device. Also, I assume -- since the app runs on others' handsets not yet upgraded to Jellybean -- that its LTE features are based on some legacy workarounds to harvest the LTE signal strength, rather than on the new standard features supporting LTE in Android's Jellybean API.

Finally got the signal figures for LTE to appear in the bar. I guess this feature has been there for CDMA signals all along. I never realized it because the font is so blurry and faint that I can't read the numerals. This is not an inherent problem. My GS3 displays digits for time and battery level, and I can read those.

    • More on Super Bowl preparations here: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl Verizon: That said, Verizon will have some hefty gear on hand if it needs to use it, like THOR, the Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response vehicle, as well as THOR’s Hammer and the Mobile Utility Technology Transport (MUTT) police cruiser. Very cool… AT&T: Like Verizon, AT&T is bringing all the tools at its disposal to serve fans and public safety customers during the big game. That includes a flying cell on wheels (COW) and a robotic dog.   There’s a ton of detail on AT&T’s network build here. Great read!
    • This means a significant number of people feel Dish will never pay them back. Dish should have borrowed more money sooner at lower rates.  T-Mobile has been much smarter at this during this merger period.
    • Dang.  Is there I way we can directly get in on that for the next one if Dish is gonna be paying 11.75%?
    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
