Engineering screen APN error?

Hey everyone, so I have looked everywhere for a post on this topic even at xda. So while going through my engineering menu screens I can across this notification stating my APN list needs to be fixed. Is this normal or did I actually break something at some point? Any insight would be great.

 

 

I hope the image uploaded. I'm new to using tapatalk.

Come on AJ I'm not that gullible. I may not post often but I do browse this site a lot.

 

Interesting to see it's a developer issue since I've seen this on all the rooted stock roms I have used.

Many people seem to forget the engineering screens aren't meant for the public. They're meant to serve a simple purpose and do that exceptionally well. Very little development time is put into these screens as they only require info requests to code and are only intended to be used by a few people. Heck, up until the Galaxy S III, one of Samsung's "apps" was called "Let's try, panning!" in the application list, that was obviously not entirely intentional for public view, but a low priority to change from development to deployment. Later software updates changed the name to more adequately reflect a public release.

 

The fact these testing apps are installed on the officially released firmware images is likely just because there isn't a justification for the "time" it would take to recompile/repackage it after removing them from the ROM image. That little bit of time adds up when you multiply it by every release candidate image x phone model x carrier configuration x etc. Also don't forget, these engineering screens are likely the same across multiple device types, software versions, and possibly even carriers and thus are not updated often on the user-end because they are low priority, it either works or it doesn't. If it doesn't work, but also is not needed, then it will stay broken until needed.

Umm..thanks for the extended answer..was not what I was actually looking to get. I am aware a lot of these screens are not for the public view. Actually a lot of what we do on here is not for public view (in terms of the average Sprint customer). I just asked if this was a normal message because every Google search I had tried failed to find any inquiries about that "error." I knew well that I actually didn't break something on the phone, it just a nuisance for me when something doesn't display property.(like how 1x is displayed as 3G...yes I know 1x is a 3G technology but in terms of data speeds, Sprint should not insist on calling it that.)

I love my DigiROM for my Note 2. It displays 1X next to signal bars when on 1xRTT, 3G when on EVDO and LTE when in LTE. It's great.

Actually, AT&T has the engineering screens removed from the official release ROMs for many of its handsets.

I've had Sprint network ticket closers ask me the PNs on the 1X and EVDO engineering screens before.

Sprint support used to ask for that info on my old EVO 4G as well.

 

As for getting the correct indicators, right now I just use signal check pro. Although, I still highly prefer not to need an app for that info. I think I'm overdue on testing out the latest release of Slimbean.

Nope. No issues. That's a note to the developer from himself to fix the screen one day. No biggie.

Hi can u help me understand how to read the LTE engineering screen on the galaxy s4 , this is from mine

Thanks just two more questions, why does it show connected with a (2) on state, and is there a way to tell if there is LTE testing in my tower, back then the screen would not show that info.

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
