    I've found CellMapper has something wrong with CDMA mapping. For Verizon CDMA is still relevant in the middle zone between Verizon's widely spaced towers, and for rural coverage. CDMA tower ID's are not globally unique, but cellmapper does not seem to know this.

    For CDMA mapping I dial *#*#4636#*#* on my non-Samsung Android phone, and then select "WCDMA only".

    So this is an old thread but I'm sitting near a confirmed tower on AT&T at home which is band 12. I'm on cell/sector 15 and I'm presently west of the tower. Shouldn't I be on cell 17?

    Maybe this is because the bands have changed? Idk.

    Either your connected to a tower south of you, or the tower to your west could be east northeast/ south southwest/ and north northwest.

    Identifying Cell Sites With CellMapper

    I was on a horseback ride earlier this week. The trail took me pretty close to a cell phone site, so I took a few photographs. The sites are kind of handy for finding what tower you are using.
