    I wouldn't agree with that. I don't unlock my phone, and I still think it's interesting to know where my local cell towers are located. If I'm in a building and getting poor service, knowing where my local tower is can help me reposition myself for a better signal.

    I'm experiencing this as well. I guess I'll leave it un-installed until I need it. Interestingly enough, most of the other people having batter issues it seems are also using ultrasn0w, which I understand is also by planetbeing. I wonder if there's something specific with the way he accesses the baseband that is producing this problem.

    It's stupid people like you that give Puerto Rico a bad name. First of all the best carrier in Puerto Rico is AT&T BY FAR, don't come here and say all that crap implying that Puerto Rico is inferior. I've been all over the island with a solid 3G signal, maybe getting Edge only in far off regions in the mountains. Just because you don't get a signal in your crappy house doesn't mean the service is ****** all over the island.

    After the Claro switch they started rolling a 3G GSM network, pretty much the same they got in Latin America.

    I'm fortunate enough to not need an unlock, so am not using ultrasn0w. However, Signal has a mobile substrate part called enablettydebug - not particularly surprising that this drains the battery a bit.
    You don't need to uninstall signal, just disable the MS extension and then reboot.

    The only thing that comes to mind is a lack of MobileSubstrate but, presumably, ultrasn0w requires this.

    I think that this app is really useful with this: [HOW TO]APN and carrier mods

    This app will tell you the Mobile Network Code of the provider you are connected to, now I can connect to non-AT&T partners as there is no AT&T towers in my area yet. I have a 3GS (iPhone 4 is on the way) running 4.0.1, ultrasn0w and the steps in the guide above. SIM card is AT&T. This is useful in rural areas or abroad, or just to mess around and connect to other providers.

    Here are the Mobile Network Codes: [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mobile_network_codes_in_the_United_States]List of mobile network codes in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]


    As you can see I'm connected to Plateau Wireless. Other providers available to me are Alltel and AT&T Mobility (which sucks in my area, I'm sticking with Plateau Wireless).

    It is showing all the detail for my 3G MicroCell, but it seems to be having trouble with the regular network. I am on EDGE out here in Redwood Valley, the 3G ends about halfway between me and Ukiah (Ukiah is 9 miles south of me) and it shows one Red Circle (the MicroCell) and three Gray Circle's, but no data on the Gray (EDGE) sites at all. I know that the sites that serve my location are to the the north just a few miles on Laughlin Grade and Ridgewood Summit, is there some kind of distance limit on this program?

    What do you mean by disabling MS extension?

    I'm experiencing similar issue. Something drains my battery very quickly.

    I'd like to know how this app involves the baseband. My iPhone 4 is SIM-Free so I didn't need ulrtasn0w, but from my experience with blacksn0w when my iphone 3gs kept loosing signal, I'm slightly concerned that Signal app is doing similar thing or at least draining my battery :/

    I got it zYxMa:

    Go to Cydia and download Status Notifier Fix, it will fix Reminder/Notifier and it'll look like the one the author has.

    This still does not work on my iPhone 4 running 4.0 IOS. I've sent several emails to PlanetBeing without reply. All that displays is a blue location dot surrounded by a blue circle. No tower circles or signal strength or other info.

    The Death Grip game closes the whole program when you try and run it. Definitely needs to have another update that corrects whatever conflict causes these problems.

    Whoa, relax there amigo, and tone down the language. Oh, and it might be a good idea to brush up on spelling and grammar skills He shouldn't have said what he did, but you just made it worse.

    It's normal if you have a lot of sources and app/theme sections Cydia is sifting through.
    If the wait is taking longer than you like, you can tell Cydia to not include certain sections from showing up in Changes.

    GO into the Sections part of Cydia, tap edit and turn off the sections you don't want to look at. That should help.
