    On average i get about 2 bars, but never full service. Today, for the majority of the time, i had 0-1 bars. I don't know why, it was at school and the internet really did not work and the phone basically had no service. Outside i had about 1-2 bars. Is this common or should i head to the Verizon store?

    Give it another day. Verizon might be doing service or upgrades in your area.

    Much too far from the waves
    I've been having that recently. I thoght it was something with the root and ROM I just installed. I hope its just Verizon.

    Hopefully it's Verizon updating network services and not a bad internal antenna. :)

    You might try *228 and then at the recorded message press 2 I have used this in the past with Verizon phones in new or weaker signal areas and it sometimes helps.

    Since it's always turning the connections on and off? Maybe the reception takes a hit.
