4g ICON no data service


Recommended Posts

I am in OKC and lately I have been getting the 4g icon but no data service.  Does this mean the towers are being worked on.  When I go into the LTE engineering screen, I see signal strengths of about -105.  The only way I can get Data back is to change it to CDMA only.

Thank you.  I was confused because 3g was working but horribly slow. 

 

Yep, I would maybe suggest leaving it on CDMA only for a few days, and switching back and checking.

This would potentially only affect the one tower then?  If when I go home or another part of town, I may get signal back if I pull from another tower/antenna?

Possibly yes, it may be a single tower, a cluster of towers, random towers around town, or all of them. There isn't a way to say for certain, we have no way of knowing exactly what is happening.

I know one of the members in New Orleans has had issues with a site for 2-3 weeks where only one sector of LTE is down. You can connect but data does not work.  Since it is a launched area he has called it in but like I said it has been 2-3 weeks.  I am in "launched" area as well with a -97 LTE signal and just changed my phone over to CDMA only since data is not working.  I sometimes have to force it to 1X only as EVDO on the site near me has been broken for about 9 months now.  I also know the two LTE sites to my west are having issues and one has been down for a few days.  Just the nature of the beast I guess with new equipment.  I've noticed lately that several sites in our market that have been working fine for months, one even with legacy equipment removed have been going down a lot lately.  Ericsson will definitely have their work cut out for them on maintaining this network!

There is something going on with 4G in the metro today. Can not get 4G in Midwest City at all and friend in Norman is having same issue.

This just started in downtown KC last couple of days, was high performaning for many months.  LTE is still fine in midtown KC.  I called support and they put me in debug mode for LTE engineering info.  Curious that it's happening in several markets all at once.  Maybe they pushed a software upgrade to some sites and is causing issues.

OKC LTE has been nearly non functional. Try going to these sites in the  night time. You will notice they are blazing fast. I thought at first they were just working on then but I noticed the same pattern on a a Sunday night too.

 

I think its probably due to the low density of 4G complete towers OKC has. Everyone and their mom is connected. My phone will drop EVDO for even a scent of LTE. Sadly it then drops LTE and turns into ping pong between the two.

how do you force your phone to 1x

Uhhh, just turn off mobile data on your phone on you're on 1x only.

Except that kills the data connection though.

I dial ##DATA#, hit Edit, enter my MSL, hit others, hit HDR/1X selection, change it from LTE + CDMA + EVDO to CDMA Only mode which in their terms means 1X only as other options exists for EVDO/1X, EHRPD/1X, EVDO only, etc.

Yeah, I was thinking voice and not data.

I noticed this behavior in my area when I would connect to a distant LTE upgraded site.

This happened to me a couple months back when the tower nearest to me first got LTE. It worked great for a couple of weeks then I got a 4g icon but no data. It eventually started working again however (couple of days, maybe a week of no data).

    • I found some automated crash reports from a Motorola Ace.. not sure if they were from you or not, but they are bizarre. The error is a security exception claiming "insufficient location permissions" but the triggering code is the block that runs once location permissions are granted. 🤷‍♂️ EDIT: I'm guessing they are from you. The timestamps were from 5-10 minutes before your post, and it's on two identical devices.
    • 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.

    • 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 "--"
