    my signal at work is about -100 dBm on average, funny thing is the bars go from 0 to 4, they just randomly bounce around every 10 seconds or so.

    anyone have a solution to the bars moving? I thought the X was supposed to have better signal than the Dinc i just took back, but it looks like it doesnt, it just tries to say it does with the higher bars.

    The incredible was getting between 97-103 dBm just like the Droid X.

    Apparently! Have you called VZW to make sure your account is provisioned properly for the X? Have you tried a *228 update?

    Ditto. From what I can see there's virtually no relation between the bars and actual numeric readings. I'll have 1 bar at -83 and 4 bars at -101. Makes zero sense.
