Is there an ATT site like this?

I am a sprint user and will always remain one, but I always like reading about other carriers.  Does anyone know of a site like this one that provides network updates, etc for ATT?

Something tells me the Sprint higher ups like this site to. They just don't want to publicly admit it.

It's a love hate relationship. Queue AJ's reply with a fitting YouTube video in 5..4..3..2..

Not a YouTube clip, but I thought I encapsulated the love hate relationship fairly well this time last year with an imaginary blurb...

 

Cool. Maybe we can get wireless industry types to endorse us with some pithy blurbs. Imagine the possibilities:

 

"The feel good wireless network and spectrum focused blog of the year!"

- Martin Sauter, author of "From GSM to LTE"

 

"Action packed! The breakdown of Network Vision deployment in Chicago had me on the edge of my seat."

- Kevin Fitchard, writer at GigaOM

 

"I hate those guys at S4GRU. But I read them every day."

- Dan Hesse, CEO of Sprint

 

;)

To be honest, I believe the corporate culture likes the site's existence. It provides a non-partisan view of the raw analytics regarding Network Vision and the future or Sprint. It is not corporate-endorsed, so it is not subject to operating within Sprint's Social Media guidelines for employees. While much of the information is obtained via leaked means, it is primarily information that users could discover on their own in the wild, and a lot of the information now that it is ramping up is coming from the users themselves more so than the information S4GRU receives from the inside.

 

They can't publicly endorse the site, but they can say that most of the information obtained by S4GRU realistically could be obtained publicly anyway so it's not worth shutting it down. Besides, the site's primary purpose is education, something Network Vision hasn't done well with customers at all.

I'm willing to wager someone at the executive level is at least a sponsor level member, more likely premier sponsor, to keep tabs on things. I'm sure this site would be smoked by now if things got too uncomfortable for them. Perhaps they see it as a free viral marketing opportunity.

    • What devices should do, and what they actually do, are two very different things! As you've probably heard me mention countless times, many of those screens get information in a proprietary manner directly from the modem; apps like SignalCheck can only get what the OS is reporting. I did find your earlier reports, and as I guessed, the OS was reporting valid signal strength. I will try to figure out a solution.
    • Service mode shows the SIM as having no service, so I would think the device should report that. I believe I sent a diagnostic report a little while back—can you check to see if you have it?
    • Interesting, that doesn't happen on my P7. Can you send me a diagnostic report the next time you see that please? Hopefully the phone isn't actually reporting the -115, that will be tricky.
    • Hey Mike—another dual SIM bug. If one SIM loses service, it doesn’t disappear from the app.  I’ve seen this a couple times—my Dish SIM will lose service (confirmed in service mode), but SCP won’t stop displaying -115 or so. And it logs a data point at that signal every time the location updates.  Along the same lines, I have a custom trigger set up for 313340 (Dish), and the custom trigger keeps firing when this is happening. 
    • TLDR: not really 😂 With dual SIM, initially I was struggling to keep the info from each SIM separate but updating properly. I figured out how to get each to update without negatively impacting the other SIM's process.. which caused those processes to run on separate threads. On some devices (notably your e5 Play), the OS doesn't like the separate threads updating the UI. But it was only a very small subset of devices. And at first, the crash reports gave the correct crash reason but it was pointing to unrelated parts of the code. Once I cleaned up some other bugs, the crash reports pointed me directly to what I needed.
