Samsung Galaxy S3 issues (toggling airplane to get LTE)

Hey guys, I am trying to see if anyone is having a same issue as me. LTE just came to my area and I will be standing in a spot that has LTE doing speed tests. It will toggle me back to 3G, and then I will have to toggle airplane mode to get back to LTE. Has anyone has a similar problem, and if so, what did you do to fix it? Also, another thing I noticed while doing speedtests, my phone showed that I was on 3G, but when I looked at the results of the speed test, it showed me as being on LTE.. I am rooted running the FreeGS3 ROM. I am not sure if this may be the issue or not. I know that EVO LTE's seemed to have this issue in the past, but I have NEVER seen or heard of someone having the issue with the S3 (and yes, I did google around)

Also since you are on that wonderful FreeGS3 ROM (being sarcastic), we had a member in the NOLA market do an entire day of 4G mapping only to have absolutely ZERO of his points show up on Sensorly. It seems the Dev of this ROM thought it would be cute to change the network name so Sensorly throws all the points to the curb instead of putting them on the map.

 

So before you map anything with Sensorly please make sure it goes up on the map before spending time mapping your area out.

Yeah, I notice this. I mapped my neighbor hood out and it didnt show =/ but mapped SCC and it showed. So not sure if someone else mapped it. I love this ROM but may have to switch to another one =/

I'm having this issue on my S3 also. Airplane mode seems to solve it sometimes, but more often than not, I have to restart the phone. I'll be standing underneath a LTE tower and be reading 3G. The "LTE Enginerring" (sic) debug screen will show -119db, or wherever the last signal was when it faded out (coverage is spotty in Detroit at this time). I can't figure it out for the life of me.

I know the latest update for the Note2 changed the scan to 5 minutes, probably the same the S3. But I know that interval is not entirely true as I've seen the phone pick up LTE in the almost the same place several times.

 

In the debug screen, what shows for the MCC MNC when it is "stuck"? 000's?

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
