S3 connects to LTE but will not pull data

I recently started picking up LTE in Chehalis, WA but when the phone connects to it, the signal indicator in the top right goes from 4G immediately to 1x and will not allow me to access the internet at all. Signal Check says that I am connected to LTE even after all of this. When I have an LTE signal, most of the time I have to turn LTE of if I want to use data. I am running CM10 RC1, but I'm not aware of any LTE issues with CM10. Any thoughts? This market is not official yet so that may be my problem. Any ideas?

According to the Current and Coming Cities thread, my towers are in the pre-launch category so theoretically the LTE that I am seeing should be functional but my phone does not want to actually use it.

It might also depend on your signal strength, I know when it reads as -115 or less I get no data whatsoever out of LTE (at least with the existing LTE towers in the Orlando market, so YMMV)

 

Instead, I find sometimes that my phone will mysteriously drop LTE and switch back to eHRPD even though I haven't moved and LTE is still available (confirmed by toggling airplane mode).

Turns out the issue was my APN settings. A quick pop back to Touchwiz and some APN changing magic got me LTE. I'm pulling about 4.5mbps down and 2mbps up at -110db. So I'm happy.

    • Looks like T-Mobile just got an opportunity to expand n41 in Shentel-land https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/shentel-sell-its-25-ghz-spectrum-assets
    • Almost at 76% licenses "sold" at $160 million. Like watching paint dry.  Will check again in a few days. 
    • I guess we'll see how many takers there are for this: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-08-04/dish-nears-launch-of-mobile-service-taking-on-at-t-and-verizon One early drawback to the Boost Infinite service is that, for now, subscribers will need to buy a $900 Motorola Edge+ phone to get connected to Dish’s new network. More phones that are compatible with the system are expected in the third quarter, Dish told analysts Wednesday. Registration Site: https://www.boostinfinite.com I remember when Virgin Mobile went iPhone-only: https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/21/virgin-mobile-goes-iphone-only-offers-a-year-of-service-for-1/ That didn't go so well.
    • Hey Mike    Ya I was the one that brought the issue to your attn for the color thing on my 6T like 3-4 years ago   that was fixed after like 6 months  and I never had any issues with that anymore till the 1st  Android/OxygenOS 12 update but it hasn't done that anymore (that i've seen lately)   it just doesn't give me the  signal strength much anymore  it'll show it for like 5 mins then  switch to  "--"  and stay that way  Sometimes if I close it out and reopen it  it'll come back (tho the icon is delayed showing up for like a min  or so when it used to show up instantly) but after a few mins it's back to showing "--" again and other times it'll just come back to the "--"
    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck.
