    Droid X on 2.2 going to 1x often

    both of our phones are going to 1x quite often even though we are in northern nj areas where we have seen excellent 3g signal.

    anybody else experiencing this?

    That's happening to me too over here on the west coast in Portland. Very annoying.

    all depends where you're and what you're doing. you can't have 3g 24/7 anywhere and anytime. it's impossible.

    that we understand. we are talking on major highways here in north jersey where one time we have full 3g the next time we have 1x.

    signal bars mean nothing, as when the phone status shows it at -65dbm i can have one signal bar showing, but then with -90dbm we show full bars.

    i have never seen a phone act like this before. even with t-mobile who sucked, signal was consistent everywhere. in other words if we had solid 3g here, i would never see edge on the phone and vice versa. of course in fringe areas there would be flipping, but not in solid areas.

    this is wack.

    does it always happen in that one particular spot or was it a one time incident?

    it's pretty random. that's why it is of concern.

    i know the verizon network is better than sprint, it's something with these motorola droids. the droid 2 was worse, the verizon store was very aware of these issues. in fact our droid 2's went onto 1x in a verizon store and they just kinda nodded and said yep, we know.

    there could be a lot of interferences especially in a cell store. i get it from time to time in a hospital. have full bars on signal but my 3g would go to 1x randomly. if i go outside everything is fine.

    Figured as much with my Droid, seeing as i have a TV, computer and stereo in the house, so when i want a good 3G connection on my Droid, i just go sit on the roof and make sure im looking at the southern sky.

    Seriously, this is a pretty annoying issue that Motorola just isnt acknowledging. Ive had other smart phones and have never had this many 3G-1X drops. When it happens, im testing DL speeds and getting anywhere from 100k to 200k, whereas when i actually have a 3G connection, it's in the 1M to 1.5M range. Pretty friggin annoying paying 30 bucks a month for 70% service. Fix this garbage Motorola!
