    I thought the bars didn't reflect 4G strength, only 3G? Hence why you can leave 4G and go into 3G while not losing any bars? I do it every day

    I was sitting at -100 on 4g with 2 bars for a while until it randomly dropped out, then it went to -83 on 3g with 3 bars. I toggled the lte off in the radio settings, and then back on and now im at -83 on 4g. -83 is what my Dad's razr had this afternoon on 4g. Seems like the radio, at least mine, has the ability to get that signal. I'll keep an eye on it and see if it drops out in a little bit.

    Just another write up based on the same tweet from Verizon.

    No matter how many tech sites write about it, we still only have one tweet from one Verizon person saying that it is being 'investigated'. I hate to be a wet blanket, but none of that tweet is confirmation that 4.0.3 will have a fix for the radio. I sure as heck hope it does, but I haven't seen anything linking them or giving any kind of time frame. The only thing confirmed so far is that they are investigating it and developing an update. I'm just trying to create realistic expectations for myself. Feel free to ignore me and my wet blanket. :)

    I agree - it's nice to hear them acknowledge something, but their verbiage still leaves it open for them to say "nah, we think it's user error." :)

    I just received my phone today and I am trying to get it set up now. I do love the phone, it is beautiful. I will say that I am not exactly happy with my 3G signal. My wife has a TB and I was testing them side by side. I was disappointed in the results. I loaded up the app market and every time, her phone was faster, by a good margin. I even tried a few web pages & again, her's is faster. I don't live in a 4G area, so I can't test that just yet. What is a good signal number? Is higher better or lower? I know that sounds like a stupid question but want to make sure. My signal strength is -93dBm 2asu. I even changed the setting to CDMA and her phone is still faster. Now mind you, this is light years faster than my OG but like I said, I am disappointed that my wife's phone is faster.

    -80 is way way better than say -102dbm.

    Higher is better, but you're looking at a negative number, so when you look at it, the lower the number the better.

    -70 is good, -110 is bad.

    I have the bionic and after the update, signal is better. Drops are very few. Hopefully they can fix the nexus too. It took 3 months though.

    Been trolling this forum for awhile now...1st post, though. Don't have a nexus yet but it's coming soon.

    Anyway, I am by no means an expert on this stuff, but just found this post on one of my favorite sites for tech news/reviews.
