How bad is it for your phone to have signal strength of -32dbm on evdo?

The strongest EVDO signal I have ever had was -30dBm RSSI.  And I was about 20' away from the panel.

I was a few blocks away from it. I briefly got it at -30 at the same location. I had LTE from this site in the low -40 range too.

probably bad for you since it looks like you are SITTING RIGHT ON THE TOWER.  It appears signal check doesnt want to play at those numbers either.

Haha yeah it is  only on top of a 10 or so story building. I always think signal check is cussing at the high signal haha

Oh and to add to it I believe this is from legacy equipment. They still have older panels up by the new ones that are LTE and 1x800. So I wonder what an extra 3% stronger signal could do :P

So the question is... Is it bad to turn green and smash things after being exposed to so much radiation? Do you value your hair? How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop? So many valuable life questions.

I believe the answer you're looking for is 42.

I used to be a white girl with flowing, golden locks....at least until they built this NV tower right next to my house. Now I look like this (see photo under screen name). Is there a customer support line for this sort of complaint (press 2 if you've suddenly become a 30 year old black man)? ; o )

That's why my hair is receding :/ ha

I am curious how many know what power level -30 dBm actually is.  It is one thousandth of a milliwatt, thus one thousandth of one thousandth of a watt, simplified to one millionth of a watt.

Wow.  No, I had no idea.

To answer your inquiry, three...three people knew that (including yourself).

    • Well, I saw a good deal on a factory unlocked A32 5G on eBay and was able to convince the seller to show me the software info screen--and it was May.  So I jumped on it. Stuck one of my Tello SIMs in it, and while my Moto One 5G Ace would connect to n71 SA, this phone refuses to do so.  And with only 0 for the TA value, it's less useful for LTE than my older devices.  Oh, and the *#2263# menu doesn't work properly for NR.  So definitely glad I'm able to disable updates. - Trip
    • NextWave re-emerges with 2.5 GHz private network service  https://www.fiercewireless.com/private-wireless/nextwave-re-emerges-25-ghz-private-network-service https://www.nextwave5g.com/nextwave-news The only way for T-Mobile to get up to 190MHz now is to either buy out NextWave in it's entirety or wait until NextWave's lease is up and attempt to "outbid" them for the right to lease the spectrum from the Archdiocese.

    • Mike. I sent in more diags for wi-fi 6e yesterday where SCP shows channel = 0.  Thanks.
    • Added and modified them all! I took a trip through the L train tunnel between 1st Avenue and Bedford Avenue recently and found n41 live in the tunnel. It's 80 MHz, speeds were 250-300, and I didn't have time to check if n71 is there. Some stations speeds slow wayyyy down when a train pulls in now, even the ones with B2 at 15 or 20 MHz, so any upgrade is great sight to see.
