Has Anyone Noticed Improvements Yet?

In my house my signal strenth is usually 3 bars (-86ish dB), but this afternoon, I was messing with my phone, and all day it was full service and -65 dB. However, I had absolutely no data connection. This lasted about 2 or 3 hours. Now, I have data and signal is back to -86 dB. If they were doing tests with Network Vision's 1x-A @ 800mhz, that would certainly explain my jump in signal all afternoon. Are they doing Network Vision upgrades here (PHX)? I recall in AndroidForums, a member reported something simmilar in Dallas.. he called Sprint, they sent him an AirAve for free... and said they were doing network upgrades in his area. About 3 days later.. They announced Network Vision deployment is underway in Dallas. So, All made sense. So, Here, In Phoenix, am I experiencing the same thing... or is this wishful thinking? Thanks for you thoughts and opinions.

Although Phoenix has not been formally announced, that doesn't mean that Network Vision has not commenced there. Chicago wasn't one of the cities announced, but I have confirmed three times over that Samsung has already gotten underway there.

 

I really feel in my gut that Phoenix is going to be one of the early cities. I would be cautiously optimistic that something is up based on your observations today. Possible testing of 800 1xA carriers is a possibility. I hope it is indeed the case.

 

Keep us posted! ;)

Phoenix seems to be the one of the hot beds for testing, both with Sprint and Clearwire. At the minimum I would think that back haul improvements are taking effect since that's the first step for NV. Perhaps we'll get more info during Sprints 4th Qtr report in a few weeks.

I was seeing drastically improved 3G speeds in St. Cloud MN, but then it went back to as slow as it ever was. I don't know what it was all about.

I think we all will see a sort of see/saw effect with coverage depending on your area and what part of NV is being worked on. Some towers will be up and others down as back haul and tower configurations are made. This is why I've commented that things intermittent with speed & coverage until NV is complete in your area. We just have to hunker down and wait it out, although you hear a lot of others saying this is the last straw and are porting over to other carriers.

    • 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.
