When two UE's send same preamble to eNodeB , eNodeB responds to the preamble and sends message-2 in downlink. Now both the UE's receive the same message-2 in which parameters for msg-3 transmission in Uplink will be same. So both the UE's tries to send the msg-3 on same UL resources given in msg-2.

Now eNodeB cannot decode the msg-3 due to overlap of msg-3's from both UE's. eNodeB will not send any msg-4. So both the UE's back off after contension resolution timer expires and resend the preamble again.

This time there is less probability to have both UE's to select same preamble again

If eNodeB receives same RAs at the same time , then eNB drops both. After Backoff timer again both UE's start sending preamble. When two UE's send same preamble to eNodeB , eNodeB responds to the preamble and sends message-2 in downlink. Now both the UE's receive the same message-2 in which parameters for msg-3 transmission in Uplink will be same. So both the UE's tries to send the msg-3 on same UL resources given in msg-2.

Let say, if cell X had PCI value 22 for 1900Mhz band and cell Y had same PCI(22) for 2500Mhz band. Both these cells are first tier neighbors?

As i know about RACH function is, suppose a UE wants to access the network, so first it will try to attach or syncronise with the network. In LTE a separate channel PRACH ( Physical Random Access Channel) is provided for initial access to the network.

The functionality is clear to me that is not a problem but to understand those two procedures i am having a trouble...
