    just rooted, worse reception?

    Used the sholes app and now I'm getting 1x a lot and no bars then like four randomly. I tried *228 I don't see a change help?

    I had that after I initially installed the 2.0.3 sholes app. I did a battery pull and haven't had that problem since. Hopefully it works for you as well.

    I have noticed this many times as well. Currently running sholes 2.0.3 and getting great reception, but as to why it's fine now, I have no idea. Perhaps it was a battery pull, or one of the many reboots, kernel swaps or other general tinkering, but I'm not touching a thing now.

    Ugh not really any better, I'm only getting 1 bar in my house now, and I'm staring at my old phone which has 3 right now.

    Are you making test calls? Is the call quality crap?

    I've heard nothing but problems with Sholes. I tried one of their earlier releases and it was the buggiest ROM ever.

    it's always possible it's not the phone but the signal in your area. I had no service in a 2 mile radius of my house for almost 2 weeks when usually i have full strength bars and 2mb/s 3g. after many calls it came back up.

    It could be a buggy sholes rom I don't know. I have not heard anyone losing cell reception from using a rom, wifi and tether yes, but never cell reception. maybe it's a bad phone too?

    Hope you get it fixed.
