    Loosing Bars with Verizon AND Wireless

    Hi,

    I had my Droid X since the release days. It constantly have dancing bars. It goes from 1 up to 4 and down to 3 or whatever random things it can do.

    I live in the state of Oregon and this happen in Portland or any rural areas. One minute i have 5 bars and the other minute I have 1.

    The wireless at home does the same. So between those two indicator its a dance!

    It totally sucks! Any have the same problem? I used to be with ATT and planning to switch over again now.. or try the Droid Incredible.

    Actually where I live it does..

    Now that I know it is a Droid X issue.. I will contact verizon and try to take action that way.. see if there is anything they can do.. Seems like Droid X might be a "rush job". I also had my battery go from 80% to flat in like 2 seconds.. what was that all about?

    I've got the original Droid and my bars are always fluctuating. I've never had a dropped call and never have noticed any network slowdown except for when I've actually got ZERO signal, which only happens in one particular building I go in sometimes.

    The battery meter probably has a learning algorithm. Charge it up completely and run it until it shuts itself off a couple times and you'll probably get a more reliable meter.

    As for the wireless signal, you might have a lemon phone, see what Verizon might to do rectify the situation. Mine drops out of 3G coverage when I stop using data for a long time, but it picks it back up when I open up an app that uses data. This might be some kind of software issue that can be fixed.

    Droid X - Verizon Wireless

    The battery issue is a known problem with the droid and is being addressed in the OTA that is to be pushed to all Droid X devices starting today. It is not a reliable indicator of your battery power currently. Mine was at 10% on the handset and then I turned it off, plugged it in and showed 50%. Should be fixed with the OTA.

    My signal is also all over the place, but nevr a dropped call. I have the Network Extender at home and will frequently check the actual signal strength through device status. The signal is actually really great - -65dcb but I usually only show 1 or 2 bars.

    I am wondering if this is the same issue as the battery status meter as well.
