How come Sprint doesn't get...

Well, it helps if you actually have 4G service.... Something both AT&T and Verizon have here in Metro Detroit.

 

And Sprint has LTE in places right now where both AT&T and VZW do not. Regardless, Sprint will have LTE in Detroit within the next year. Deployment takes time; it cannot happen everywhere at once. Whining, passive aggressive comments like yours do not speed up that process.

Going with the Missouri thinking here.... SHOW ME! I will believe it when I see it. I have had my Note 2 since launch day, have traveled a bit, and have yet to see a 4G icon.... Don't even know if it works yet....

So, what...you have traveled to Ann Arbor, Flint, maybe Toledo? I kid, I kid, but you have just not been to any markets with live LTE. Get over it. That you have not crossed paths with any LTE is nothing more than historical and geographical contingency.

 

Network Vision deployment is ongoing in many markets across the country. LTE is already live in many markets across the country. If you do not know that by now, that is a failure to SHOW YOURSELF because Network Vision schedules and progress reports are readily available here at S4GRU.

Not only that, we're all Sensorly addicts, so you can get a visual map there.

 

Although, AJ, I am curious: where does Sprint have LTE that VZW does not? Obviously, Sprint is beating out ATT, and will be soon in the markets they're not...

Because of Network Vision's scattershot site upgrade strategy, Sprint LTE has beaten VZW LTE to some hinterland areas in some markets. That is certainly true in the Kansas market where I live.

Heh, hinterland. That's not a word I've heard much. Outside of roleplaying games.

 

I was curious, mostly. Sadly, such an argument likely does little to placate Sir Detroit. Michigan's already covered in VZW's LTE, even many rural areas. The house my folks live at (a house a half mile down a dirt road in the middle of a forest in the middle of a valley near some farmland) has LTE from them. However, looking at the Sponsor Maps, Sprint will likely beat VZW on "everything in the northern half of the lower peninsula". Interesting.

Hinterland? Geographical reference?

Time for a developer to make a rom... how about just OMG! for the icon?

I can make custom icons all day, but they won't be marketed by Sprint and official. T-Mobile also has their lack of a 4g icon (I know HSDPA+ isn't 4g, but they market it as such.)

You know that some idiot is going to say that sprint doesn't have 4g LTE. That they only have 4g and that 4g LTE is better.

...if not an Iphone 5, the fruity logo phone has the "LTE" icon lit when in 4G zone

Or the iPhone5 is the only phone on sprint that has 4g LTE and all the others are 4g only.

I already have to explain Sprints separate 4g technologies all the time. :'(

I was actually surprised that my gs3 had no 4g splash screen when i turned it on and it does not say anything about 4g on the back like my og evo did. granted the evo was the first sprint 4g phone, even if it was wimax.

    • The powerline tower overlooking downtown Redmond has FINALLY been upgraded. I guess it took this long due to the large birds nest on top of the tower. During the upgrade, they moved all LTE frequencies including B41 to one eNB 84782 and decommissioned eNBs 97521 and 95988. Additionally, the tower finally has all three 5G-SA bands (gNB 1852420). 
    • I have 3 Samsung Galaxy a10e for mapping LTE. For 5G I like the Samsung a32 5g (both factory unlocked).  In both cases try to get one with firmware from the spring of this year.  Then you can use the Samsung Band Selection app no matter what the carrier. Been trying to get my OnePlus Nord n200 5Gs squared away with android 11 and rooted.  OnePlus bought out by Oppo thus service and strategic direction are both problems.  Just getting an e-mail back for the unlock the bootloader process is taking a while. Once we get out of NSA, 5g will be much easier to map. Factory unlocked esim issues are plentiful on high end Samsungs.  My quest is a factory unlocked phone that works well with SCP and Cellmapper for both SA and NSA, with multiple active esims that work easily with MVNOs, functioning VoNR, great reception and transmission, full band support for AT&T and Dish. My next hopeful candidate is the s23.
    • Forgot to mention that I traveled all over the lower Hudson Valley last weekend while using the Verizon eSIM trial to directly both carriers' coverage on one device as opposed to using a second phone. Coverage was virtually the same in my experience with the biggest exception being the Bear Mountain region. All along the Long Mountain Parkway from Woodbury Common going east, coverage remained virtually the same. Both carriers reported similar signal strength going all the way down to 1 bar at the same times but when I arrived at the roundabout near where Long Mountain and Palisades Parkway meet up with one another, Verizon had a much stronger signal compared to T-Mobile's 1 bar. Verizon has a series of sites installed all over Bear Mountain State Park to provide signal to visitors. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like any other carrier attempted to do the same in the 2+ years since they got built. Because of these sites when you're driving on Bear Mountain Bridge and along Bear Mountain Bridge Road going south, Verizon has slightly stronger signal than T-Mobile. — — — — — I'm thinking about buying a burner Android phone to get back into mapping again because I drive around the city a lot and never get the chance to do so. I have a Galaxy S7 Edge in a drawer with an inactive T-Mobile SIM but it doesn't register LTE at all and it doesn't have Band 71 so it's not that useful for me. Any recommendations for phones/plans to map cheaply?
    • So what am I missing???   Why cant i get the s22 ultra do a screen share through cord??  Trying to get it to share to my 10" auto screen. I could enable it with the note 20.. but I cant seem to get this to do it.. All the videos show 1 way, but that setting isnt there.
    • Got the update last night. Broke SCP notifications .... so yay.
