I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀
Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.
Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
Next Generation 8 Port Dual Band Antenna Setup
4 port 800 MHz RRH-C4 800
Narrow beam setup
High Capacity Site with 2 Antennas & 3 RRUs (2x PCS & 1x SMR).
Second antenna is PCS only for now.

Sprint announced at MWC trade show in Barcelona that 5G will go live with 4 cities starting in May (Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas and Kansas City )
Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
No worries! I kind of jumped the gun by posting before it was published and should have been more clear, sorry about that. It's completely separate from SignalCheck Pro, so most of you won't have it installed already.
I thought about that after I posted, I assumed it was the newest version since I had to install it, but it looks like the update hasn't hit the play store yet. That was on 4.482. I'll test again once the update is available. Sorry for any confusion. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
Slightly different request for help today.. I have finally(!!!) updated SignalCheck Lite, after several years of dormancy. It was stable and didn't need a lot of changes until Android 10 made it completely unusable. Anyone on the SCP Beta Crew is automatically able to opt-in for the Lite Beta as well. The update (version 4.572Lb) should be available shortly.. could you please take a few minutes to install and test it, to make sure it is stable?

The code is nearly identical to Pro, but with many components removed. Once you verify it is working, you can uninstall Lite to minimize confusion. Please send me a brief comment (here, PM, email, whatever) after you give it a try and let me know how it looks. I do not expect any issues, but I want to make sure it is stable before it goes out. Thanks!
