Does it look like Sprint is on this tower?

This is the view from where I park at home now. I think Sprint is on it based on some maps, but nothing looks like Sprint to me. The nearest tower where I used to live looked like what I was expecting.

Hmm the maps show that to be the location for my tower and one of the apps says I'm 50 yards from my tower.

My tower is not going to be NV for a while yet, I want to make sure I'm watching the right one.

Small rectangular ones are wimax.

 

Long ones are legacy 3g panels.

 

The very thin ones might be iden panels but i'm not sure.

 

I look at panels like these every day when i go back and forth on my college campus and. Not to mention.. that microwave receiver is what Clearwire uses.

*spins the wheel* Wee its my turn. Top is clear. Second, Single panel per sector is sprint. Third is a different company. A company rarely will ever take more then one spot on a tower. Spots costs money.

That's a question I have: I sometimes see competing cell companies on the same tower. It's odd - to someone outside the industry it seems odd - I know that competing ralroads sometimes have the rights to use each others right of way but that's the closest analogy I can come up with.

A lot of towers are owned by tower companies not cell companies. They will take anyone they can get.

 

Also if a carrier owned a tower I am sure they wouldn't mind charging the competition an arm a leg to locate there too. Probably one of the many reasons the tower cos got involved.

Lots of cell companies have sold all their towers to 3rd parties and lease space back with tower maintenance bundled in the payment. They get a cash payout from selling them then a ongoing fee. The lease company sells to other cell providers too lowering the cost per carrier over everyone owning their own towers.

    • 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.
