    improving signal

    Does anyone have any tricks for improving the reception on the thunderbolt? I just activated one for my wife and she loves the phone except the reception sucks. It's on 1x most of the time inside the house. It is rooted with clockwork recovery installed, so i wouldn't be opposed to installing a ROM if i thought if would help. Her previous phone (Droid x2) rarely lost 3g at the same location

    Maybe it's a bad TB or your location because I'm in Massachusetts and I have 4G everywhere nowadays and if it does switch to 3G it does it instantly...

    Yeah, I'm aware my location isn't the greatest. I am just wondering if anyone knows any ways to improve. Motorola phones are the only phones that seem to get decent reception at my house. I know their radios are better than other companies. That's why i wondered if maybe there its a way to improve the radio. Maybe with a custom kernel ect. I don't have much experience with that stuff.

    It won't do anything, no app will improve the signal, at most it will simply adjust what the phone shows.

    Are you using an aftermarket battery? The antennas are located on the battery door, if it's third party or in bad shape the antennas may not be working optimally.

    Maybe not, but new radio firmware update can improve it.

    how do you update the radio firmware so I can pick up the new 4g in my area. There are some areas of the city where I get full 4g bars, some where I get only 3g and some half 4g bars (like 1 or 2).
    I want to get full 4g everywhere.

    That's probably not possible no matter what you do. Some places just don't have as good of reception due to tower locations
