    crappy network coverage

    Hello!

    I rooted and have downloaded a few apps, but no roms. My network coverage has become very poor since. Is this a coincidence?? Or could there be an app that affected coverage??

    Any thoughts would be very helpful!
    Thanks in advance!!

    Are you certain that the coverage is poor or are you going by the number of "bars" you have? Sometimes you get false representation of the true signal, and that could be the case. I have always determined my signal strength by whether I can make calls and download data, not by a signal meter.

    I've dialed *228, and I get an "error no network coverage".
    I need to reboot at least twice a day now to make my phone recognize coverage.
    I'm thinking its an app

    It may be an app. What rom are you running?

    You need to dial *228 option 2 and update your roaming coverage. You are probably only working off of Verizon towers right now. When you get in a covered area just follow the instructions and see if that helps.

    Probably coincidental.
