Is it built into the OS or do I need to download an app from the market? If so, any recommendations?
Something different than Settings>about phone>status?
THERE it is - I couldn't find it. Thank you.
My signal strength sits about -90 dBm but my phone says i have 0 bars. According to the chart below I should have at least 3 bars. WTF?
Sometimes it does jump to -120 dBm.
The signal bars in your notification bar is for 3g, assuming you have the 3g icon showing. The dBm reading in status refers to 1x signal i believe...
I'm at home connected to WiFi. I don't see a 3G icon.
AJ evo same ish here. sitting around -90 to -80 and no bars displayed... I live in Santa Ana and my 3G is crap, not consistent at all. How is yours in your part of the o.c.
I'm near the Tustin/Irvine marketplace. 3G does suck around here, which is pretty unbelievable. I was getting good speeds near The District.
I don't understand the bars though. With the signal strenth we have that's worth of at least 2-3 bars. Sometimes I do have 2 bars, but usually none.
Oh ok. Yeah, I've also been having discrepancies between signal bars and dbm readings. But mine have been with 3g instead of 1x.
