    Sensorly Question

    Will Boost Mobile map on Sensorly and Cell mapper as Sprint since it uses their towers?

    Sensorly is hard to predict, particularly with CDMA carriers. Look at CSpire's 2G map, for example. They have no service in Birmingham, yet Sensorly shows their service there. I believe this is because CSpire's phones report "CSpire" regardless of the carrier you're on. Sensorly doesn't do this with GSM carriers.

    CellMapper goes strictly by the MNC of the signal.

    RootMetrics only cares if your phone has a usable signal or not, not who the signal belongs to.

    It should, but I've had issue mapping with both. Sometimes prepaid devices use different MNC and MCC codes from post-paid. For example, back when RingPlus was active it wouldn't map as Sprint because of how their devices were provisioned.
