    Hi All,

    I'm trying to make the most of my Droid. I am using a speed test app on the Droid and then use PDANet to tether, with both I get speeds twice as fast for uploading then downloading. Also, I can usually get 3-4 bars of 3G at my house, sometimes it just switches to 1X at 1-2 bars and I can't figure out why. Location doesn't change, just sitting on my desk.

    Is there a setting somewhere I am missing? VZW "support" was useless.

    Thanks!
    B

    Issue has been documented here, but not resolved. Google "Droid 3G to 1x switching".

    Thanks, Colnago - I just read two long threads about it. Stinks that this has not been fixed. I wonder if that antenna port will get utilized :)

    I doubt it, which is why I'm going to try the Milestone to see if reception is improved.
