Verizon code for updating towers
I was recently able to figure out the answer to this question when I successfully flashed a CDMA phone from Sprint to Verizon (an exploit documented in Flashing a Sprint Nexus S 4G to Verizon).As I have not been able to find a compilation of this information elsewhere, I am writing up this document in the hope that it will help others with flashing phones or porting ROMs to different carriers. Hence, it may not be applicable to other phones or carriers; in particular, the section about CDMA chips do not apply to CDMA phones that require a SIM card, such as some Verizon Wireless LTE phones.So toggling the "Enable LTE" function to "Data Only" in the settings panel seemed to temporarily solve the issue, according to .There is also the possibility that the issue stems from a fundamental flaw with how the i Phone 7 using i OS 10 interacts with any CDMA-based network, which includes those of Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular and numerous other international carriers.Note that this information is based on my research with the Jelly Bean (4.1 & 4.2), ICS (4.0) and Gingerbread (2.3.4) versions of Android and two major U. In such cases, your comments and insights are welcome.Finally, a disclaimer: I have no formal understanding of any of the intricacies of CDMA technology and therefore cannot guarantee the correctness or accuracy of this information. I cannot be held responsible for any damage or legal consequences resulting from or related to the application of this information.Continue Reading Verizon phones are equipped to update when the person who is using the phone changes location.The phone may change towers that the signal is drawn from, and the phone may begin to go into a roaming mode when it is too far from the home tower.
The update is numbered 10.0.3, and it’s solely focused on fixing the cellular connectivity issues for those two phones.Some users of different networks have reported similar service problems, so this may have extended well beyond Verizon's customer base.Whatever the true problem and its source, Apple has issued an official fix.So if you’re an i Phone 7 or i Phone 7 Plus user who’s experienced wonky cell service over the course of the last month, check for an over-the-air software update.Update PM ET, October 17th: Clarified that the i Phone 7's cellular connectivity issues have been occurring with other CDMA-based carriers.
