What is the purpose of *228 and what does it do?
It reprograms and activates your phone. It also updates your PRL's using option 2
My phone is only two weeks old and only have a signal issue at home. I get one to two bars of 3G 70% of the time and one to two bars of 1X the other 30%. Would *228 option 2 solve this? Or is this just caused by the cell tower location to my home?
I also get very quick spikes (full bars) of 3G signals.
Also, what does PRL stand for?
It may help with signal here is some info from verizon

Ability to connect to the digital network in more parts of the country

Now is 1X and 3G both digital networks?
yes i believe so, because 1X you still have access to the internet. Its way slower then 3G though.
Thank you. One other thing is I also get very quick spikes (full bars) of 3G signals at home.
I have a droid 2 and that would happen to me but a reason baseband update seem to fix that for me. Not sure what the status of the X is for updates but that will probably help too if its ever updated.
You may need to get used to the spiking bars/3G/1X issue as this seems to be a feature on D/X. I am a mile away from four towers and get it. Once outside the house and closer to main roads the device changes. *228 may not be your solution. Many others on other boards are reporting same issue, no Verizon or Motorola solution.
What update is this??
There was a recent update to the droid 2 phone only, which improved a few things. One of those was the baseband or radio version. This is not compatible with the X. Verizon/Motorola will release something for the X when its ready.
Gotcha I also want to note that I am still running 2.1. Not sure if 2.2 will help any as a previous poster stated that this is a common issue with others.
