Default Signal issues? Want better upload/download speeds?

Try this:

Low Signal Issue Resolved! - xda-developers

I had signal strength around -80, download of .9mb, and upload of .6mb with the previous PRL (59021 or something like that) with the one that's posted I get -60 signal, download of 1.8mb and upload of .9mb.

Just follow the steps in the link. If you need to go back just do *228. Make you sure you unzip before you update the prl.

that's the altel prl file (roaming on altell) I used it back in the Spring when I had my dinc.

Resolved would be quite an exaggeration.

Wow.

The old prl from may didn't work as well as this one.

I went from -118db to -86 db.

That's like 1 bar to 3.

Pretty good.

Thanks for passing this info along.

Not completly sure, but you might want to be careful using an Alltel prl. In some areas, like mine, altell didn't have native evdo and piggybacked on Sprint for data. Not sure how VZW is with in market data roaming.

Ah crap, that makes me worry.

I don't think they'd charge for something like that though...
