I'm not seeing my carrier


Sometimes the multiple carriers use the same tower. For this reason, only the owner of the mast or a single carrier might be represented by the icon on the map.
If however you're seeing zero towers reported for your carrier in a relatively large area, please reach out so it can be addressed specifically.


I know there is a tower but it's not showing up


We do our best to keep the most comprehensive an dup-to-date database of cellular towers. However, sometimes it takes time to do so worldwide.
If you're aware of a tower that is not showing up in the main view, you can try performing a Power Search.
If it still doesn't show up, it would be awesome if you could contribute by providing all the details you have so we can add it.


I'm not seeing anything


When you first open the app, you should be seeing a map centered at your location and shortly after carrier icons appear on it.
If you do not see a map, it means there is a connection issue.


Why am I only seeing towers in San Francisco


When you open the app for the first time, it will ask for permission to access your GPS coordinates. This is used to locate you and load nearby towers.
If you are seeing the map centered in San Francisco instead of your actual location, it means you either did not allow location services for the app or the GPS didn't return coordinates.


Inaccurate tower information


We do our best to keep the most comprehensive an dup-to-date database of cellular towers. However, sometimes it takes time to do so worldwide.
If you're aware of a tower that is not showing up in the main view, you can try performing a Power Search.
If it still doesn't show up, it would be awesome if you could contribute by providing all the details you have so we can fix it.
Alternatively, in the tower detail view, there is a button to report a tower.


Do I need an internet connection to use this app?


Although the app automatically caches data, an internet connection is essential initially to find towers for your location.


I have a suggestion/request, what can I do?


That's great! Your thoughts are extremely valuable.
Please make sure to let me know if you have any ideas/suggestions so we can make the app even better: FindTower@giacomoballi.com
