    What is the opinion on the comparison of signal strength? I am a tech junkie. My last Verizon phone had spotty coverage in my house for some reason. I live in a major California area. My current DInc coverage is MUCH worse at my same primary location. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PHONE OTHERWISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I get 3 bars the majority of the time. I do notice that my signal bar will go from 3 bars to 2 bars by simply picking up my phone. It's most likely a software issue. The call quality remains very good.

    Bob, try calling Verizon or taking it back to the store and ask them to update the PRL to a "hybrid" PRL.

    That's what worked for me; it will use alltel towers as well as verizon towers. (Yes, Alltel in some places was much better than Verizon; the towers around me have not been fully converted yet so PRL was only polling Verizon towers).

    you CANNOT go by the bars, they are jumping around way to much

    settings>about phone>network

    look at the strength there, anything in th -50 to -80 range is pretty good IMO....-50 being the best you can get i think
