I just saw this article on Clark Howard.com. It's got a secret code that you can enter into your phone keypad to find out the strength of your providers signal. I hope this is OK to post and I'm not sure if this is the right form to post so if one of the moderators feels necessary to move it I will completely understand.

This is called Field Test mode and has been around for a while ... I used it for a while but went back to the visual indicators because it was easier for my brain to figure out what they actually meant ;) Some do prefer this though! Have you tried it? If so, what did you think?

I've been using it for several years.

I'm not on beta. Followed those directions exactly and still same result

Don't know then. Works on my 6s Plus. I've never seen that menu option like that. I see one, but it's different. Did you try tapping on any of those options? What's under LTE?
