iPhone 5 User Thread

Recommended Posts

So, we all know about the lovely iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus User thread, and there are many different device focused threads across S4GRU, but there are none for us older iPhone users. So, why should they get to have all the fun? This thread is dedicated to anything and everything about our beautiful (Spark-less) iPhone 5's and 5S's.

 

Discuss anything like jailbreaks, hardware problems, how much you love your device, how great it is to have at least one LTE band compared to the folks who still have 4's and 4S's, ask questions and maybe you can get some answers, etc. etc.

 

Discuss! :)

I connect to Band 26 more than I do Band 25, due to my proximity from the towers. It's a wonderful thing to have :)

I can't wait for Band 26 to become active here, it will help with coverage and add capacity.

I've actually been tempted to get a used 32 or 64 gb 5/5c/5s to replace my iPod Nano and add it to my Framily as a new line so I'd have a better and bigger iPod with data.

 

I'll definitely be following this thread.

As much as I want a 6 Plus, I still love my 5S. It's an amazing device. The battery life for me is very good, the design is great, and it performs as if it were a brand new device. The A7 chip is truly something amazing, and it doesn't stutter at all.

I'm pretty sure we have these forums already.

Not to mention the 5 shouldn't be coupled with the 5s and 5c. This will be moved, migrated and edited in the morning.

 

iPhone 5s/5c User Thread. It just has a different title but same place.

 

There isn't a iPhone 5 thread, but I'm guessing that's because of demand, but I'll let this roll as iPhone 5 thread.

Oh shoot! I totally forgot about those threads. Sorry about that! Thanks for the help :)

I still have my 5. I love this phone and it's definitely been a fun two years having it. Apple's phones are definitely built to last. My phone runs through iOS 8 smoothly and I rarely lag. The main reason I'm upgrading to the 6 is for spark capability and for that 4.7' display. Lol it definitely caught my eye as soon as I saw it [emoji7].

So my iPhone 5 connects to LTE and wifi and 1x just fine, but when it tries to connect to 3g it says could not activate cellular data. I've spoke to sprint on multiple occasions and they don't know why. Have done all the recommended resets and updates. I have an airave at home and still no 3g. My s3 connects to 3g no problem so i know it not a tower or airave issue. Totally stumped

Personally I think the iPhone 5s is the best looking phone Apple has made. I'm not a huge fan of the iPhone 6 design with the antenna lines and the slippery back. The nice thing is Apple will replace your current iPhone 5s for just $269 (https://www.apple.com/support/iphone/repair/other/). I just did this with my 2 year old iPhone 5s and now I have a shiny new phone with a new battery.

Yes the iPhone5s is the best looking device Apple has made. Especially the gold one. If Apple had made the 6 models look like the 5s but in a larger size I would probably own an Apple device right now.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
