I'm trying Tmobile signal around town for a month. So here's what I want to do. I want to drive around town and see where I have HSPA, 3g signal. The phone tells me what signal its getting but I dont want to be taking my eyes of the road that often. So does anyone know of an app that will color in a map that will show you this data? Or one that will make a sound when signal is dropped. I just want to know what kind of signal I would get around town. Maybe a music streaming service that will stop playing when signal is lost. Any ideas?
Another concern I have is that I went to my uncles ranch this weekend and had no kind of signal. Ranch is about 15 mins out of town and about 200 yards away from a highway. As soon as I hit the highway I can get some signal, but not while in the ranch. I have a nexus 4 and don't know if another phone would have better signal.
I also just read straight talk has gotten 4g lte, would anyone recommend that. My son loves to watch the angry bird video clips, and I read somewhere that you couldn't stream any videos with straight talk.
