I think he was discussing something that showed data for the 4G radios, not the WiFi radios. Still, that app is a beauty. I’m going to try it out.

That's a speed test. He wants something that shows signal strength

That is so cool! Now if we only had a WiFi signal to check. Thanks anyway.

I thought I had made it abundantly clear that our only access to the net is via cell signals, and that we absolutely MUST use a We booster to do that.

ah and this isnot working now ?

Apple iPhone
Update November 7th 2017 Releases after 10.3.3 will not allow for toggling between the signal bars and the dB signal reading.
For current models using 11.1 iOS please do the following:
• Key in *3001#12345#*
• Tap : Serving Cell Measurements
• Scroll down to: Measured RSRP
• Add +20 dBm to the resulting number (example -102 shown
would be -82 dBm

Yes, but it is not persistent and must be accessed each time needed, whereas before the downgrade this info was always displayed instead of the useless bars.
