Does any one know the application we need to download or the codes to field test the Nokia 6120c phone - we have one under test & would like to get actual RSS details of the phone to document.

So far my guy is very impressed with signal strength compared to CDMA.

I would think that pre-launch (in fact, for a number of months), any tests re: signal strength and other measurables (data speed etc) would be potentially irrelevant.

I got data throughput on a 1X site once of 147 or kbps, but it was 7am about 3 feet from the tower.

Real world, laden network results count!

:-)

But yeah.... still good to hear of good experiences!

Indeed, would be in everyones best interest to say it should match current CDMA footprint or there abouts, any more is bonus, any less well its early days!

The field test mode is for establishing breathing difference in rural sites. I.e. what it is showing is 4 bars on 6120c to 1 bar Samsung i325, this will change over time as network users grow on WCDMA & decrease on CDMA.

I think also its good know the pre launch signal strenth is comparitive rather than worse.

For sure!

They will get hammered if anyone finds CDMA coverage with no W-CDMA coverage.

It has happened before.....CDMA launch.... OUCH.

Back then good TG's Telecom went with a cell to user density model that was designed for 15 cells to a given area, they went with 13...... ARRRRGHHHH, cause the Mohan thought he knew best!

This time I think they have learnt and seem to have fixed the issues, oh plus the CEO is not TG

TG's Telecom always impressed me to a degree, but DrPR's Telecom is a clear leap ahead of the 'old guard'.

Assuming you have a SIM inserted (either Telecom if your lucky, or an overseas on roaming). CellTrack should give you some info.
Nokia have long held tight their own field test modes on their phones :(

The RnD test displays must be pre-installed into the phone via special firmware loads, gone are the days when it was there and just "enableable". If you are official, ask for a test device?

Celltrack is a great app anyway but it does have it's limitations.
