I've been noticing recently that my phone would go from showing 2 bars on 3G to 1x in areas where it used to always get 3 or 4 bars on 3G. Is there a way to tell the phone not to switch over to 1x? Unfortunately, the signal and reception were fine for me in the initial 30 days, but now when I can't return without an ETF charge, my signal is less than stellar. I've called support, done a reset, and did the 228 thing. I'm not familiar with the whole rooting thing but is there anything you can do with that to help the signal?
