Hi does anyone have the signal app from cydia. I try to use itbtonfind towers but seems sometimes I end up at no tower? Any other opinion

It sounds like the tower(s) is(are) squawking offset coords for the tower. There isn't really any other options for apps. In the sponsor area there are locations for were the towers are.

I don't use it to find towers as most, if not all towers squawk the wrong coordinates. One I ran across yesterday said the tower was over by Santa Barbara, and I was in the San Fernando Valley off the I-405. Other than GPS flaws not at the fault of planetbeing, his app is great.

Sprint LTE cells squawk the targeted cell coverage center and not the tower itself. This is what Signal displays and can be confusing, Example:

The green circles indicate three band-25 cell "centers" emanating from the tower in the pink box.

 

These are not equidistant, as you may notice, though they are close. Network engineers vary things, namely downtilt, to alter the attempted cell center.

That is the same site but closer. Pink circle is the tower.

 

And...

This is the same tower again. Pink is the tower, orange is part of the shadow projected by it, the part at the very top. It is significantly more dense now than whenever that shot was taken, which appears to be pre-LTE.

 

Here is a better and newer shot from google instead:

However, much of the shadow projected by the sun's angle is onto the sides of the trees, and not visible in a perfectly vertical satellite photo. But if you look carefully you will see a denser tower.

 

This is one way of using Signal for locating towers.

What repository (source) did you add to get this app?

So has anybody been able to jailbreak ios7 yet? Everything I've found online seems to be a gimmick - It's been months since I've had my jailbreak and I'm dying to get it back.

 

Nothing yet. Hopefully soon something will come up. But I think those who are working on it are making sure that Apple can't find out their exploits before the initial release bugs are worked out.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
