So, my buddy has a Droid and side by side, I have photos to prove it, I got 0-1 bars and fluctuating 1G-3G and he has 3 bars solid no fluctuation and solid 3G. Things I noticed: MEID # mine A0000015FDB8AD his A00000159BF6BC PRL mine 51891 (I updated mine today and can't get to 51893??) his 51893 Area Code mine 760 his 619 Signal Strength me -92 dbm his -83 dbm so, how could it be so different? side by side. testing this over the last hour. and how does he have higher PRL? could the area code even matter? WTF! solid 3 bars and 3G the entire time for him.
