    Better signal? Battery life increase due to better signal and less searching? I'll give it a day or 2. Thanks John.

    That will come tomorrow - after I get to test it when I don't have access to a WiFi connection all the time.

    I like testing and all, but with the finals on I ain't about to drop WiFi and use 3G to keep up with everything around me :D

    I'm getting an extra bar living in the middle of nowhere. Could also be the weather.

    So far the main thing I've noticed is that it seems to flip between 3g and 1x less. In the, admittedly cell-tower-lacking neighborhood I'm in right now that might help my battery a lot. It used to switch so much it flickered. I'll report more whenI'm back at my home with a reliable 3g signal. Haven't really noticed a change in the numerical signal strength.

    Would this work for those of us still on 2.1?

    No telling I guess until there is a tester.

    I don't think this really made a difference for me. Similar to the original PRL, better at keeping 3G than the second. So I guess its the best of both worlds.

    G.Armour You know you want to.

    On the original I kept dropping 3g and never would get it back until I did a reboot. But with this, I ain't had any problems.

    I'm on a 2.1 ROM and it worked fine. The baseband has nothing to do with the OS version.

    Got an error when trying to activate after install. Just ended up dialing *22899 and everything worked. Hope this baseband works better than the last...

    440 down and 570 up for me. No difference from the last.

    Does this update come with Froyo, or is it separate?

    Just repeat till it works. Sometimes it fails, especially if you have low signal, or the network is busy.

    You just have to check your baseband file under Menu, Settings, About Phone. You can upgrade your baseband if your file isn't the latest version.
