Any way on iPad to check what type of cellular connection you are using?

I have a 64GB iPad 4 WiFi + Cellular and I know on Android there is the SignalCheck Pro app to determine your signal strength, etc. Is there any way to do this on the iPad?

If you are jailbroken, then check out Signal 2 in Cydia. Otherwise, no.

No, for wireless network diagnostics, your problem is that you have an iPad.  You got Jobbed.

 

:P

Tim Cook is trying to reverse parts of Jobs' archaic locks on iOS.

Unfortunately I am no jailbroken.

The quality of the apps on the iPad are much better than on Android.  I have a wi-fi only Nexus 7, which I also like.  I just wish iOS were a little more open.

Just not access to engineering screen apps...

So funny I forgot to laugh.

What is funny is that you apparently take offense at an established fact: the iPad is too locked down to allow access to engineering screens that are the lifeblood of wireless network observers.

While I certainly agree, AJ, There aren't any engineering screens on the Nexus 7 either, correct?

It does not have a cellular baseband, making engineering screens irrelevant.

You Apple sheep are annoying. If you don't like the facts, write the Apple CEO a letter, or buy from another platform.

 

You act like he insulted your wife or bullied your first born. Give it a break.

Annoying? Please don't come in here saying things like that. In all respect, I like both platforms, but like iOS better because I'm used to it, and for me the less problems I have with my mobile phone, the better.

Then you arent one of those annoying sheep. Trying to drag the Nexus 7 into a ipad discussion in an attempt to bash it, just so the ipad doesn't seem so bad (which I own one and like it) is annoying. Not everyone who has an IOS device is a sheep in the herd of job.

Now when it comes to laptops, I won't buy a windows machine, but have to use Windows on a daily basis for school. No matter how much I hate Windows, I have no choice but to use it as it is here for a while to come.

Even if it did, do you really think that Google would put one on just for Sprint?

Assuming the Nexus 7 comes to Sprint in LTE form, Sprint may request it be done, just like they did for the Galaxy Nexus.

It's certainly possible, but the Galaxy Nexus situation was kinda messed up so I hate to take much of it into account.

I never called all Apple users sheep. I own an ipad, and I can guarantee you, I know not all are sheep. Those who think IOS is the right hand of God himself are the sheep.

Nobody in this thread said or implied anything about iOS being God. You're the one that said "you Apple sheep are annoying."

 

I came to this thread to see if there was a way to do what the original poster was asking since I have an iPad as well. Not to see S4GRU contributing authors and others engage in Android fanaticism and Apple-bashing. They're just operating systems people.

No one bashed Apple.  Thats what your failing to understand here.  He made a joke, and the joke was based on fact.  no bashing, no whining.  The sheep mentality saw his response as threatening to the apple platform, which, it wasnt.

 

Im done here.  Im going to play on my ipad.

    • 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
