3g performance in yuma

Recommended Posts

So im shocked at how well this phone performs. I've seen no lag what so ever. Very happy with my purchase or gift...lol thats to be debated i suppose. I came from the galaxy s2 and with that phone I was able to to stay on roaming so it wouldnt go back and forth from roaming to barely any service. I mean it would but not as much as the evo lte would. But thats my only gripe....lovely device. I hope it serves me as well as my first android phone, the Droid Incredible...now theres a device. That phone was a workhorse...and considering it's three years old it actually is still pretty comparative to recent phones especially prepaid devices.

 

Btw, I was having 3g issues yesterday in wellton. The network was slow as molasses, but then again im not usually up during the time of day that i was on the network so that could have very well have been, but it still seemed more strained then usual.

The LTE can do forced roaming. Enter *#*#4636#*#* on dial pad, on the menu change radio to 800mhz and scroll down changing CDMA,LTE, Auto, to CDMA only.

 

 

 

Or you can root and put a custom ROM that allows you to change that. :-)

I will have to look into it, thanks. BTW I did try changing the radio and it worked. but when I want to come out of roaming do I just go back to 1900?

 

Yes

The sites that were reviewed were the one by Ave A and 32nd street By Kofa High and Ave B and 20th street.

Hopefully they also submitted some permits with Yuma County for us folks in the Foothills :)

I'm still rocking my EVO 3D, waiting to see what the next EVO iteration will be, but I'm leaning to the Galaxy S4.

Something definitely was up today. Had some training over at the Air Station and could not pick up a data signal at all...i mean nothing, not even 1x.

 

Tried PRL and profile update...got the error (67 I believe). Anyone else notice this issue in Yuma?

    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — — The old permit expired for this site without any work being done but a new permit was just approved a few days ago for a T-Mobile site at this address. Description mentions 3 antennas with 2 RRUs per sector. My guess is they're doing something similar to what they did at 360 Furman St in Brooklyn where they broadcast Band 2/66 and n25/41 from one antenna. It's a bit of a downgrade considering the site it's replacing was a full build with Ericsson 6449s. 
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
