Re: EVDO Only Mode via Watcher -- 1X/EVDO conflicting data?
Yea, I have the latest version of watcher.
Suddenly about 4-5 hours ago the EVDO Only option started working properly. I am retaining -83 signal currently in EVDO Only mode instead of losing signal.
I now notice that in my sprint smartview debug window that the "Current Service Pilots" listbox is now empty (With automatic mode it shows the channel and PN in the list box). My channel is currently labeled as "0" in the Common Information pane and in the EV-DO pane it lists my current PN as 87.
I'm going to keep track of my PN fluctuations and try to figure out what the best set up will be.
Not sure what the issues were but it seems to have fixed itself. I imagine it won't be smooth sailing yet though.
Same with me, you won't see PNs in EVDO-Only mode. Which is why I once speculated that perhaps leaving the modem in Automatic might be better, if the information is used to improve quality of the connection.
