Android cell phone frequency app

I found an app called "Mobile Radio Frequency" that reads the cell frequencies etc. on Android phones.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

Not on my Samsung G S III it doesn't.

It has charts that lets a person input frequencies to convert etc, and displays frequencies used for various modes, but nothing I can tell that it's actually dynamically reading the cellphone state. But the info I do see is interesting as a reference as to what occupies the radio spectrum.

I don't get the displays that are pictured either, and there's no menu at the top right...

There is a paid version, but no info on what the differences are.

The app I do find helpful though is "Network Signal Info". It does give info on the cell connection, your wifi connection, both at once, and a phone hardware info page.

MRF is just a wiki-like app. And that is what the author also says.

Just dial *#0011# and the first line in the service menu will tell you the Band your phone is using...

Thanks four for that info....

I've read of the existence of that menu but forgot the access method.

It can get you into trouble too.... :-)
