  1. Ive also noticed recently while sitting at my desk in my office, if wifi is on it will connect to our T Mobile cell spot. It doesn't actually connect and pass traffic if I turn off wifi but it will sit on it for hours as long as I keep wifi with wifi calling on. I wonder if they are getting ready to start refarming the last HSPA spectrum in some markets and are about to enable domestic LTE roaming? Either way, I don't remember my phone showing Verizon or T Mobile until recently. The PCI is wrong on the service mode screenshot, 67 is the weak AT&T site I hit at my office. But it shows the T Mobile PLMN of 310260 and correct EARFCN. Interesting either way. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  2. There are a couple of ways to determine the channel size, though none of them are as easy as opening the engineering screen. The first is to check the FCC licenses for your area for Verizon. 2nd is if another carrier you use has adjacent licenses, for example here I knew Verizon had a AWS carrier centered at 1725/2125. I also have AT&T which happens to have a 10x10 AWS carrier centered at 1715/2115. That puts Verizon's carrier as 10x10 also. 3rd process I use is I have an old rooted nexus 6 running NSG. Since the phone is rooted NSG call pull loads more info from the modem than my S9 plus. None of these methods are a direct replacement for the engineering screen and all require a little work, but anyone of these three can get you what you want.
  3. My office is about the same, this building is a black hole for all cell service. The only carrier that works in here is T Mobile since our LAN admin put in a Cell Spot for his phone. Thankfully we have good wifi and wifi calling works great on my S9 plus. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. Versailles Indiana this morning, I believe this is the fastest upload I've gotten so far from a macro site. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  5. I drove out of the area and back in and had the same experience. There was a several mile stretch going into Milan that I was connected to Verizon. I never did get data though, looked like it was seeing but not authenticating. I saw flashes of Tmobile B12 and B66 also but it never lasted more than a second or two before going back to Verizon.

  6. This was up in Milan Indiana. Pretty sure it was active as my phone sat on this for well over an hour while I was in a store working on something. My phone said emergency calls only while I was on Verizon. I also briefly saw tmo mobile b12 but it never stayed more than a second so it may may just been scanning.
  7. I saw some Verizon roaming today. AT&T service is non existent where I am currently, my Verizon phone is barely usable. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  8. Interesting. Did you notice if the RSRP and GCI values were updating as you moved around? I'm wondering if it's actually showing 5G info or just still showing the last LTE info it had.
  9. Can you post a screenshot? I'm just curious to see what it shows on 5G.
  10. I haven't seen it on my S9 plus either. Samsung will have to include those bits of code that pull that information in their Android build. We may not see it until Android Q. Hopefully we see it soon than later but we'll see. Even on the phones that have been passing that info its been wildly inconsistent. Hopefully in future releases Google will get that issue sorted out.
  11. Is Sprint possibly a roaming partner for a regional carrier in the area? Maybe they needed to keep that 5x5 separate so they could do MBFI B2 for a regional partner. That'd be the only reason I could think they'd keep two adjacent carriers serperate.
  12. Yeah it looks bad on Radar. Looks like rotation will go north of Overland Park though. I hope everyone in the KC area is paying attention to the warnings. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  13. Quick, somebody go dig up the dead horse so we can beat it some more. https://www.koin.com/amp/news/civic-affairs/5g-cell-tower-critics-post-health-warning-signs/2017340977 https://www.wafb.com/2019/05/19/homeowner-focused-organization-host-public-meeting-address-att-small-cell-towers/?outputType=amp
