Hi, I'll like to check the tower nearest to you, I also saw that you provided your cross streets above. Can you send me a private message providing me with your ZIP code?
Done. It was also earlier in yesterday's thread. Out in the boonies we have guns and don't worry about zip code giving away too much! ;-)) OTOH, Google has morphed into my enemy. Need a much bigger "gun".
I notice! Give us some time to get this matter fixed, okay. Meanwhile you can keep updated with the coverage in your location by using the Sprintzone app.
"using the Sprintzone app"
May not be convenient as the phone is my hot spot into my LAN and is not easily at hand. I tried a couple of the web-base things but one didn't work and the other just said I had good coverage. I'd really like one browser-based that gives me equivalent or even better functionality. Is there such?
I'll like to look into this matter for you, however, in order for me to do so I'll like to gain access to your account. Can you please confirm the information requested above?
Requested info provided now.
We've got your private message and are reviewing. As soon as we have the answers you need, I'll be responding there. Thanks.
It looks like "Fawlty Towers" are still "Faulty Towers". 13:15-14:20 5/21.
After runnng all morning "in the wild" (i.e. NOT under my monitor) with signal readings staying between -93 and -97 over a dozen or more checks, at about 13:15 I saw a reading of -127 and then -130 dBm. The latter is about the worst I can recall.
All connectivity between the internet and my LAN was lost. When this happens I noticed in the past that hot spot is turned off.
I moved the phone back under the monitor. When signal had come back up to -97 and then -93 I tried the usual connectivity tests (various pings) but they kept failing. This was because, as I then noticed, we kept losing connection to the network. This happened a half-dozen (or more - I failed to count) times.
While this was going on I kept checking signal and was seeing -100 (good enough to at least connect in the past and usually do something useful) to -93 dBm. All still under my monitor.
Even though many times everything suggested I was connected to the Sprint network, I could never get out to sites on the web with pings. Mobile hot spot was turning off again and again. I finally stopped watching the signal strength and just watched for hot spot being turned off.
Finally at 14:20 I turned off hot spot and fired up the satellite so I could have reliable connection and not lose even more data that I collect during the day.
SIM status showed -101/2 dBm, good enough I should have been able to do some work.
All connectivity had been lost from ~13:15 until ~14:25ish when the RELIABLE, but slow, sattelite, was up and running.
Color me ... what? Flustered? Disgusted? Both? Yep.
