    Alright.. so.. I just switched from a regional carrier to VZ just so I can get decient phones.. The maps (imagine this yall'..) say I should be pretty good on coverage everywhere I am.

    However.. sitting here at my computer.. And everywhere else I've been to day..

    Without moving my signal will go from 4 bars of 3g to no bars of 1x. One time with full signal.. it took 3 tries to make a call. Once it connected.. it worked fine.. talked for 15 minutes without it dropping. However the massive movement in my signal bars is rather bothersome.

    Any tips?


    What are good and bad S/n readings?

    Sitting here.. right now.. 3 bars of 3g with a -99 s/n Since I've been watching it.. it stays between -92 and -99 (I would assume lower would be better :( )

    Try updating the phone to latest towers by dialing *228 and selecting option 2. This really helped mine.

    Just got it today.. should be updated to it.. but I've tried twice and it says I need a better signal.. 3 bars of 3g before I dial.. 1 bar of 1x after. *sigh*
