Just wanted to know if anybody else has the problem of the signal bars, in the notification bar area, getting wildly inaccurate. For example, I'm sitting here watching my signal bars and signal strength in the "About Phone" -> "Status" dialog. My signal strength shows -76dBm and 3 bars are displayed, which is about right. Without moving the phone or the signal strength changing, I will go up to 4 bars and then down to 1 or 2, and the signal strength is still at -76dbm.
As a side note, I've done some speed tests, using the speedtest.net app and I get better speeds when I have more bars, not when the signal strength is better. Just sitting at my desk, I can get anything from 300kbps/400kbps to 1134kbps/854kbps. It varies a lot with the majority of speed on the slow end. I mostly get about 400kbps/600kbps. Yes, that is 400 down and 600 up.
Anybody have issues like this?
Forgot to add: I'm on Sapphire Froyo 0.8.4 and baseband C_01.43.01P
