Why does Sprint have 800 SMR turned off in some PRLs?

At the very least, it is left out of LTE devices that have international support, so iPhone 5, Note II, Photon Q for example. Why are they doing this? All of these devices support that!

 

56012 is the latest in that series of PRLs.

You guys are missing his question... the 55xxx/56xxx series have it turned off. These two series are found on LTE devices with GSM capabilities (as listed in the OP). Around the time the iPhone5 came out the 800SMR was removed from the series. I'm not saying it was due to that phone but it was around that time. It has been a head scratcher for myself on why they have done this. We have confirmed that iPhone5 and NoteII work on 800SMR by loading other PRLs here at S4GRU.com. The PhotonQ had 800SMR support at one time but was removed so it is not this phone. I'm not sure what other phones have GSM capabilities as I don't keep up with the non-flagship phones.

 

You used to be able to load your own PRL but it was removed in the latest update on the NoteII and S3. You can however correct the "issue" if you root and apply a simple patch.

Interesting, so SID 476, etc. are all in the PRLs?

You might want to reconsider that "notation" for the Note 2. Every time I see it, I read "Notell" -- like some hybrid between Nortel and Rotel.

That's the new policy... Notell - no tell you about LTE upgrades!

    • 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.
