    Poor 3G signal

    Does anyone else with a Thunderbolt in a non 4G area have low signal for 3G? With my OG Droid I had full bars pretty much everywhere but with the Thunderbolt I have 0-2 bars at best in the same places.

    I'm in the same boat. My D1 had pretty good reception, no matter where I was. My TB is definitely behind in that department. I'm still happy, though.

    Not me. My 3g signal is as good or better than it was with my d1. Data speeds seem faster as well...

    I was trying to update my roaming with *228 because of the difference in the signal strength. Then I found out about the issues with the sim card and how it automatically does this without having to dial it.

    I am curious whether these reports are all based on the bars icon or are you having trouble connecting or making calls? I've always read that comparing two phones' bars is not a reliable method. In other words, how they each set the bar icon doesn't really show that one is having reception problem. JW

    Yeah, my D1 always had more bars than my TB does, however I get much better speeds with 3G on the TB.

    I agree too about the 3g coverage with the TB. I have been comming to San Antonio for business the last month. I drive from San Antonio to Hondo, Tx. Its about a 40 minute drive west of SA.

    With my D1, I would get 3g coverage all the way down I-90 while listening to Pandora or Slacker.

    I drove in last night and I was getting 1x coverage and the music would go in and out. A couple of time, slacker would just quit because it was saying that it was not receiving a signal.

    Yeah the weird thing is even with 1 bar I get decent data speeds on speedtest. But in cell standby in battery use it always says a time without signal at around 30%.
