    My wife and I got our phones at the same time,and the same place and activated at the same time, but I have moved on to leak v3 and she stayed 1.5 I've noticed her signal strength has always showed more bars even though when I look at our status its always equal around -88 dbm for both phones....but our PRL is different? I don't know a lot about how this works. But is this not the tower we are connected with? If that's the case if I found a way to switch to that tower would that mean the phone may show a stronger signal strength? The only reason I care is that I'm hoping maybe it would improve battery....thanks for any replies.

    with the leak v3 2.1 also the OTA official 2.1 same thing really, there is a bug with the signal bars being off, as you said both phones show the same -dBm, which is what you need to go by.. it will not effect the battery
