Airplane toggle gives 4g for a split second

Hey everyone, new to these forums so hello :)

 

I live down in South Florida (Boca Raton area) and I've been following the market thread for a while, but have yet to get a 4g signal. I've noticed that when I toggle airplane mode sometimes I'll get 4g with 2-3 bars for like 1-2 seconds then it jumps back to 3g (or even radio). Service has degraded the last 2-3 weeks so I'm guessing they're working on a tower but I wanted to see if you guys had any idea why I get 4g only for a brief moment then immediately go back to 3g.Thanks!

Just so you know, the amount of signal bars you have does not represent how strong your lte connection is, the bars you see represents 1x. With that being said, the most obvious explanation would be that you are on the very outer edge of the range of an lte tower and the connection is just too weak to stay connected.

Consider getting SignalCheck Pro from Google Play - it has a reset button and signal strength meters, and will tell you clearly if you are actually getting LTE. It was written by an S4GRU member.

    • Added, and 2 more estimated sites: T-Mobile eNB 876480. Looks like its located at (40.62210996397784, -73.97627312607108), as the tower looks like a Sprint setup. T-Mobile eNB 875632. Both this site and Sprint eNB 9022 seem to be located at (40.61640722407462, -73.96985178560767).
    • Many of these sites I am uploading are for sites that do not exist, yet.  Although, I suppose I could go into NR only mode every time I connect to a new site, and then switch back, allowing all the TAC NR trails that occur to now have a home. Ideally, I would love to ne able to add the TAC's myself.  I have the NR Trails CSV file downloaded, and I see all the TAC-less NR entries.  Is there any way I can edit and manually upload them myself?  Maybe create a portal for such an upload?  Or at least give me a way to create at least one manual entry for every new site? Robert
    • Could we send the TAC as -1 if it’s invalid? Then, if there’s and existing site that matches the other info, I could match the web data entry up with it (despite the TAC being absent). 
    • Mine has been enabled.  And they show up in my device logs with the TAC null. Robert
    • If the TAC is missing, an entry is still recorded in the log, but it would not be included in uploads.. so you could probably manipulate a trail log export to add the data to the map if you were able to nail down the sites without the TAC. EDIT: Sites with a missing TAC are only recorded in the log if the option to do so is enabled (Logger > Log Sites with Missing TAC).
