I've had a Motorola Droid for about 5 months now, and up until a few days ago I was getting very good service in my home. Suddenly I find the service is absolutely terrible, and I drop calls very often. At first I thought it was a temporary hiccup, but its persisted for over 3 days now, and its starting to cause severe problems with my professional life.
I am running Android 2.2/Froyo with baseband version C_01.43.01P, and PRL version 51926. I have tried numerous times to dial *228 and select option 2, and I have not seen a single change in my PRL number. Searching around the internet it seems that number should be much higher, in the 66000 range? Or are those codes phone specific?
For the record, my signal strength varies from -98 to -102dBm and often times registers no bars/no service. As I said earlier I used to get very good service and full 3G not even a week ago in the same spot. The phone has not been dropped or thrown or shocked in any way, so I'm reluctant to think its some kind of damage.
I'm not sure where to proceed from here, since I seem unable to perform a PRL update, which I'm hoping is all I need to fix this problem. I'm not the primary account holder and that person won't have a chance to bug Verizon for another few days, so I'm on my own for the moment. Can anyone make any suggestions please?
