Cell ID not changing after OTA updates?
Has anyone who uses apps like RF Signal Tracker and Network Signal Info found that the cell ID no longer updates when on the move? The issue started a week or so ago and the only thing I can think of that's caused it is one of the many recent OTA updates to 4.3. I tried a sim card for another network in my Nexus and it persisted, so it's not a network specific issue.
Basically, when I'm driving, I like to use RF Signal Tracker in drive mode to monitor signal strength and cell IDs, particularly if I'm on a long drive for a holiday, etc. I'm now finding that the cell ID remains stuck on a tower I was connected to 15 minutes earlier, despite the signal strength being correctly reported. I find that the issue is reduced slightly if I have mobile data on. It also eventually updates if I'm stationary for minutes.
Is this a radio/modem issue? I know it's trivial, but it's annoying me.
