Would cellmapper on an honor 10 lite pick up if 700mhz is local; even though the phone doesn’t support it?

I’m assuming not but would save me the chore of moving sims about 😂

Need someone to magically make cellmapper compatible with iPhones and my life would be complete 😂
Or just don’t buy iPhones like the rest of us 😁

just a thought :)

I’ll no doubt get the next Samsung when that comes out.

Always swap 😂
I have an iPhone too, it’s god awful and I can’t wait to ditch it 🤟🏻

It’s only my work phone though and I’m planning on getting a 5G phone of some sorts soon as my main one so my RN9 will become work for a while.

I tested 5g at Webs Heath, Bristol BS30 5LZ this afternoon using my Motorola edge 20 lite. Also at Tenniscourt Road, Kingswood BS15 4LB. Speed at the latter location was 327mb/s down, 30mb/s up. My soon to be expiring Three sim was used.
New Smarty sim also tested in the same phone at Webs Heath, only supporting 4g+. I didn't do speed tests at this location.

Well Smarty not Three from what I'm seeing and also I've banged this line out so many times I'm bored of it.... the Honor 9x isn't exactly a good device to determine Three's capability.

I could test Vodafone with a Lemobile LE X829 and it would be crap and then with a i Pixel 4 and it would be fantastic.
I understand what your saying im using Honor 9X not good deivce to do testing yes im using smarty I use
To be with Three it was kind of same speeds as Smarty in my areas.

My wife has p40 lite which is better for testing but still get slow speeds from Three.

I uncle use to be with Three when he had iphone 7 says Three use be good around 2011 in the area now gone downhill.

Im showing how bad Three is in my areas
WE KNOW YOU HAVE TOLD US TIME AND TIME AGAIN!

It’s starting to get tiresome. First it was complaining about the 5G, then it was moaning about the 4G and now you aren’t even testing 3 with a proper phone or SIM.

If they're that bad, can't you leave for someone else when your contract/deal is over?

He’s on smarty, there’s no contract, and this is my thoughts exactly. If your pissed off with them, get rid! I got rid of giffgaff for smarty as they were abysmal and didn’t make a hoot about it

Im not pissed off cause I mainly use WiFi which is Three 5G Broadband im just showing that's how the speeds are even on my wifes P40 Lite in my areas.

I will be moving to Vodafone after my Free month and £15 free credit I got for referring finishes.

If you mainly use WiFi, there's no reason to complain. I don't see why you use three for your internet and phone but you still complain about both. I get that you are probably in contract for the broadband but if three is so awful for your mobile, get up and leave.

Just toying between smarty and Three, the connection seems exactly the same in my area, no variation in ping, up or down speeds, both intermittent at accessing 5G but I think that’s just due to my location.

Considering porting my number from O2 as I’ve seriously had enough of their BS.

So I’m either heading smarty or voxi.

Someone sway my mind 😂

I am due to move to the North East, either Newcastle or Hartlepool so don’t know if anyone has any hands on experience between the two locations.

Well my port went very quickly from Virgin Mobile to Smarty, so can't fault them on that process for what it's worth CarlO1460. 😊 (y)
