    Have any of you tried the RadioComm and local.prop hack? I think it improved how the global handles gsm signal to a point where it's stable and useable.

    I tried it. Very little change. I still get the signal go from H to E to G in an area of high signal strength. If I set the phone to UMTS only it stays on H but unfortunately when I go into a building or elevator it looses signal. Not just data but phone as well. I have to change it back to automatic mode, at least then I may loose data sometimes but can still use the phone

    Thanks for the tip Byakushiki, I have tried that too, again, it didnt' help.. reception (phone & data) is still very unstable. I even did a test to see if it was due to the areas I go to.. so I found a place where I get very good reception and sit there with the phone, observing it's behavior.. and found that it's the phone that is unstable, nothing to do with where i am, or how strong of a signal that area has to offer.

    My experience so far:
    At home (far eastern Japan, Rausu), Softbank Mobile: near perfect operation.
    When on a business trip to Russia: MegaFon: near perfect operation; MTS: crappy coverage and ****ty reception due to the carrier, not the phone (my Nokia 9300 and Motorola V547 show the same issues with signal on MTS).
    G. Y.
    Sony LT25i “Tsubasa”, stock, rooted, locked bootloader [Android 4.1.2 “Jelly Bean”].
    Maximum speed witnessed over LTE: 98.2 Mbps down / 48.5 Mbps up; Average speed over LTE: 72.9 Mbps down / 45.7 Mbps up.

    I've used the phone with both the VZ Rom and Fisson Rom - both worked very well with no problems at all.

    A tad unrelated but go to build prop and change ro.mot.phonemode.vzwglobalphone value from 1 to 0. You'll regain some "lost" signal bars on GSM. Credit to some guy on xda for that...
