    I looked everywhere but can't find the answer...
    Some numbers have appeared on my phone and I can't figure out what they are measuring. They are negative and change, right now it is at -107, I just checked mail and it went to -109, What can it mean?

    The number is at the top of my screen (dammit, I can't recall how to take a screenshot) between the time and battery level.

    I run MikG 3.0, Chop Suey. I have Titanium Pro and SetCPU. Could it be any of those? My phone is running fine but not knowing why these numbers suddenly appeared or what they mean is eating away at me.

    Its going to be one of tweaks. Check your settings there.

    Its your signal

    I think those numbers are a measure of your signal strength. Maybe an app activated it or one of your settings got tweaked

    Thanks much for the input. I was recently in MikG tweaks so that's a great tip although I went back in and looked and didn't see anything that would account for those numbers being there.
    Thanks Rxpert I can post this screen shot. It is the -107 that I'm trying to figure out.....
