Wind mobile port

So I just ported my number over to PM. Popped the new Sim in restarted and all apn settings are correct. Data is working fine, I can't believe how much faster this is then wind......my God it's like day and night the difference I'm almost not use to how fast a page opens.

My question is my phone shows 4glte stuck at 1-2 bars, if I switch it to read H it shows 5 bars. It switches to h on a phone call which I'm assuming is GSM but why does it give me 5 bars in the same spot that I get 1-2 bars on 4glte.

Re: Wind mobile port

3g and LTE are on different bands so the signal strength will not be the same. 1 bar of LTE will be faster then full bars of 3g. And yes i agree PM is very quick,

 

Also, when making a call it will switch to 3g on your indicator because the call is using the LTE and then 3G for the rest of the stuff while on the phone

Re: Wind mobile port

LTE, for the most part, is operating on Band IV 1700MHz.  The signal on that doesn't travel as far as something such as UMTS Band V 850MHz that Public has available to its customers.

 

The signal reading measurements are reported differently for LTE compared to HSPA.  I've noticed that LTE almost always shows 2 bars or so but it's still fast, and is even fine in indoor basements where I have tried.

 

Your phone will automatically use HSPA for voice service, or when there is lack of and LTE data signal.

 

I would just set your phone on automatic network type and not even think about it

Re: Wind mobile port

But wouldn't the 1 bar kill my battery much faster then the 5 bars of H aka 3.5g

Re: Wind mobile port

When you have less bars your phone uses more power to use the signal. So in theory yes it will use more battery. But very margonally. I wouldnt worry about it.

Re: Wind mobile port

Okay cause it's definitely still faster then the 5 bar of h. Was debating locking it in at 5 bars and not using lte but alright I'll give it a go haha. Love this plan.

Yeah the LTE works like a charm. Enjoy your awesome plan Smiley Happy
