Just checked my iPhone for an update and it went from 51086 to 51087.

Try typing ##873283# into the dial pad then hit the call button. Wait a minute or so and your PRL should be updated. Mine is at 60687.

Got the update too but I am unsure. I wish someone would pull the prl from the Nexus to see if it has roaming with Metro PCS LTE

 

Uhhh, no roaming with metro pcs lte or anyone else's lte for that matter.

That's odd mine didn't update to 60687. Perhaps it's because I'm still on 5.0.1? (can't update or I lose my JB)

That's probably it. I don't think we're going to have to wait much longer for 5.1 to be untethered though.

Hopefully not. I have 2 iPhone's to update to 5.1 for others, but just waiting for the untether.

Odds are it's taking a while because there technically is an untethered 5.1 JB out there, however I'm thinking their exploit can't be made public since it required an apple dev account. Same thing happened with the 5.0.1 4S JB. We'll get it in due time.

My old 3Gs is the best for jailbreaks. Limerain has made it untethered for life. :)

I updated both my Epic 4G and my wife's Epic 4G Touch after seeing this post. Big help for us in the signal department. We live in the south Chicago area where they have been struggling with the NV rollout and our coverage has been horrible the last few weeks.

It's because the 3GS has a certain boot rom that makes every jailbreak untethered.

It's still meh for me even with the update. Glad it's gotten better for you!

the newer boot rom 3Gs' are limited to tethered on iOS 5.1 right now. They changed the bootrom midstream, but my replacement still had the old one.

Thanks. And actually that is 21087. The first real world PRL that has an ACQ record for 800SMR! I see it attached to SID 22439 in the NY Geo area.

 

So this will "see" 800mhz CDMA sites?

Are there any CDMA 800 sites to be found anyway???

 

Yes, there are 2 confirmed in the Chicago area & one unconfirmed in the LA area.

Yes. For Chicago Sprint customers, your phone will check the standard PCS channels first. If it cannot find any PCS channels it will check the 800SMR band before roaming. It will also check the PCS band for EVDO data when connected on the SMR. Kinda dumb if you ask me, if PCS EVDO was available then you wouldn't be on SMR for voice in the first place. Just wasted battery looking for a EV signal.

 

This is only on the 21xxx PRLs on 800SMR 1XA capable phones, by the way.

    • The powerline tower overlooking downtown Redmond has FINALLY been upgraded. I guess it took this long due to the large birds nest on top of the tower. During the upgrade, they moved all LTE frequencies including B41 to one eNB 84782 and decommissioned eNBs 97521 and 95988. Additionally, the tower finally has all three 5G-SA bands (gNB 1852420). 
    • I have 3 Samsung Galaxy a10e for mapping LTE. For 5G I like the Samsung a32 5g (both factory unlocked).  In both cases try to get one with firmware from the spring of this year.  Then you can use the Samsung Band Selection app no matter what the carrier. Been trying to get my OnePlus Nord n200 5Gs squared away with android 11 and rooted.  OnePlus bought out by Oppo thus service and strategic direction are both problems.  Just getting an e-mail back for the unlock the bootloader process is taking a while. Once we get out of NSA, 5g will be much easier to map. Factory unlocked esim issues are plentiful on high end Samsungs.  My quest is a factory unlocked phone that works well with SCP and Cellmapper for both SA and NSA, with multiple active esims that work easily with MVNOs, functioning VoNR, great reception and transmission, full band support for AT&T and Dish. My next hopeful candidate is the s23.
    • Forgot to mention that I traveled all over the lower Hudson Valley last weekend while using the Verizon eSIM trial to directly both carriers' coverage on one device as opposed to using a second phone. Coverage was virtually the same in my experience with the biggest exception being the Bear Mountain region. All along the Long Mountain Parkway from Woodbury Common going east, coverage remained virtually the same. Both carriers reported similar signal strength going all the way down to 1 bar at the same times but when I arrived at the roundabout near where Long Mountain and Palisades Parkway meet up with one another, Verizon had a much stronger signal compared to T-Mobile's 1 bar. Verizon has a series of sites installed all over Bear Mountain State Park to provide signal to visitors. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like any other carrier attempted to do the same in the 2+ years since they got built. Because of these sites when you're driving on Bear Mountain Bridge and along Bear Mountain Bridge Road going south, Verizon has slightly stronger signal than T-Mobile. — — — — — I'm thinking about buying a burner Android phone to get back into mapping again because I drive around the city a lot and never get the chance to do so. I have a Galaxy S7 Edge in a drawer with an inactive T-Mobile SIM but it doesn't register LTE at all and it doesn't have Band 71 so it's not that useful for me. Any recommendations for phones/plans to map cheaply?
    • So what am I missing???   Why cant i get the s22 ultra do a screen share through cord??  Trying to get it to share to my 10" auto screen. I could enable it with the note 20.. but I cant seem to get this to do it.. All the videos show 1 way, but that setting isnt there.
    • Got the update last night. Broke SCP notifications .... so yay.
