  1. The GCI and PCI are very different from the old values, and neither appear to match T-Mobile's patterns in this area, including some confirmed to be on the same tower. Interesting that it is only the B41 cells. All of the Sprint TACs (including these new GCIs) in my area are still what they have been all along.
  2. Beta version 4.59b has been pushed out and should be available on Google Play within the hour. It slightly tweaks the behavior of the stale LTE data problem. The workaround will be force-enabled on all Android 10 devices, and selectable on pre-Android 10 devices. I was just going to remove the option and change the code based on the Android version, but perhaps there are users out there on an earlier Android version who could benefit from it. As long as there no last-minute problems come up, this version will be released to the public tonight or tomorrow. Please let me know if you run into any issues. Thanks for the help!
  3. A ton of B41 Sprint sites in my area (Boston suburbs) have started getting new GCIs over the past few weeks. My first thought was it was related to the merger, but that's just my speculation.. any thoughts?
  4. That is the issue discussed above your post.. impacts some Android 10 devices. I'm working on a fix.
  5. Hopefully it's something outside, otherwise you might have to wait awhile..
  6. I had a similar issue with my cable internet about 15 years ago, but only during the day, and not every day.. Comcast was out several times trying to figure it out. Would start/end almost the same time every day, I was recording modem logs and ping times.. Turned out to be the run coming into the house.. the wire was deteriorated to the point where it was ok until the sun hit it! So on sunny days, it was failing from sunrise to sunset.. cloudy days and at night, it was fine. Blew my mind but a new cable into the house fixed it.
  7. Beta version 4.582b has been pushed out, but I am not sure how long it will take before it appears on devices. Google is warning that app processing may take up to 7 days (presumably due to the COVID-19 pandemic). This update only attempts to resolve the stale LTE data problem that some users are seeing on Android 10 devices. Some code changes have been made that MAY resolve the issue -- please test it out and see if it works. If you are still seeing the same behavior with this update, I added a more drastic code change as an option under Preferences > General > Use Stale Data Workaround. Enable that option and see what changes. Please do not enable this option until you try monitoring the app for a reasonable period of time with it disabled. I don't love the "fix" I created that gets enabled with that option, but it may be necessary. Of course, neither approach might fix it. Please share your results in this thread, or privately however you normally contact me. Sending feedback within a diagnostic report is always acceptable, as that comes with background data that might be useful to me. Thank you! EDIT: It's already live as of 8:15pm EDT
  8. I am trying to resolve the issue described above by Trip; I am not sure if it is a side effect of my workaround or a separate bug. Stay tuned..
  9. I know that would be convenient for those of us with more than one device, but I will be honest and tell you that the level of complexity for something like this exceeds the time I have available to devote to the app right now. I hope to eventually add the ability to have database imports add to the existing data instead of wiping it out, and then users could essentially copy databases back and forth manually however frequently they wanted to.
  10. Did you try restarting the app after importing a backup? Also, the terminology isn't great, but you can only import from a database file created with "Backup Log Database". The files produced by "Export Site Logs" are CSV text files and not meant for direct import into the app. I am not able to reproduce any problems backing up or re-importing my log. The only other thing I can think of is if you try importing an old database backup with a new version of the app, the extra columns may cause an issue. I tried to test those scenarios but there could be outliers. The navigation bar is controlled by the OS, unfortunately apps have no control over this behavior on modern versions of Android. SCP uses "layered" notification icons which some OEMs have failed to properly test and support in the past. Try changing your icons within the app to something that is only showing one piece of data at a time (ie connection type only or dB only) -- does that resolve it?
  11. Getting more info from a few other people, it sounds like it's definitely limited to some Android 10 devices, and everything continues to update normally *except* signal metrics and cell ID details for the active LTE cell. LTE neighbors, CDMA info, and Wi-Fi are apparently working normally. If anyone is seeing something different, please let me know! I'm still working on finding a solution.

    Mine seemed to be better too, but I wasn't sure if I was paying close enough attention.. it would be awesome if it was resolved.
  13. Interesting.. if the timestamp is updating, that means SignalCheck is getting an update from the OS, and 3-10 seconds between updates is very normal. However, the information not changing when the timestamp changes is obviously an issue. If anyone experiencing this could submit a diagnostic report from within the app, I'd appreciate it -- want to see if it's limited to certain makes/models/builds. I am not able to replicate it with a Pixel 3 on AT&T or Pixel 4 on Sprint.
  14. Thanks for the info.. unfortunately it does seem to be a change in Android 10. I'm trying to see if there's anything I can do about it. What device do you have? I don't experience it with my Pixel 3 or Pixel 4.
