    Hello, Over the past couple days i've noticed that my 3G reception will drop from perfect reception to 1x reception. This cannot be true though because I have looked at my mothers OG and it has perfect reception throughout our home. Along with this fluctuation i've noticed that the color of the 3G meter will change from blue to white on occasion?
    This constant flip flopping in signal has resulted in Cell Standby being responsible for 44% of my battery drain. (Even after I have left the phone idle for hours)

    This signal problem(and the resulting battery drain) is my only issue with this otherwise amazing phone. Have other people been experiencing this issue or is my radio faulty?

    P.S. I have tried *228 option to countless times to no avail.
