    My Dinc literally just rando-booted and when it started back up my signal strength jumped from 90dbm to 72dbm from 1-2 bars to 3-4! No idea what just happend but was curious to see if this happened to anyone else. BTW I'm in PHX, tempe area!

    i had mine reboot a total of 2 times since i got it on the 29th. both times were when streaming music in my car. i wasn't paying attention to signal strength though.

    This is the first random reboot and I wasn't doing anything on the phone, it was just next to me at my desk when I felt it vibrate, I looked over and saw the INC reboot screen. I was pissed for a second thinking I was falling into the rando reboot issues but it turns out this was a good thing! Also should clarify that although my signal was apparently weak before I never had call quality issues or anything of that nature

    maybe it was a super stealth update. :)

    my call quality has always been perfect. even at home where service is far from being perfect.

    Would be sweet if it was! Like I said I never had issues with the call quality but I did keep an eye for signal strength in certain areas I frequent and this just amazes me. It is sitting strong at 64 dbm now.... I have no idea what happened...

    Maybe, but Alltel was assimilated a while back I thought? Oh welllad it happened to me :D

    INTREPID-NY Android Enthusiast

    Yes, assimilated. But the Incredible wasn't programmed to use their towers in some cases according to forum posts. I have no idea if that is true as Alltel is a long way from NY.

    I remember Alltel! They had all those comemricals talking about how all the other networks sucked and they were all trying to be like Alltel. Kinda ironic that they got bought.

    yea i thought their commercials were funny... if you notice near the end of alltel comercials the verizon guy was not participating with the other ones... he was kinda to the side and not talking

    It could be a random reboot or a PRL. PRL updates require a reboot on the Inc.
