    It seems like since the last outage the phone been at least holding reception a little better. Maybe its just been a good couple of days reception wise for me. Time will tell.

    This happens sometimes during outages. I remember after one outage my Bionic didn't drop data for a day or two.

    when I updated to the new baseband it pretty much solved my issues. I never had an issue with dropping calls, 3g was just spotty in my house.

    I've also been having slightly better signal strength... I used to have -110 and -120 regularly and today it was -97. Still not good enough though.

    What's a new "baseband?"

    essentially it's the software that allows you to connect to VZW's signal. Every so often they will update the basebands for better signal in your phone. It's one way of fixing some signal issues.

    So, did update automatically or did you have to do something?
    I'm really really wanting to keep my Gnex but if I can't get my signal issues worked out within the next week I"m going to have to trade it in for something else.

    I am rooted so I updated it myself but I would expect a fix soon enough from Google that updates everyone to the newest baseband too.

    I keep hoping we'll see an update now that the holidays are over! I've finally been able to take decent pictures with it, so now the only thing disappointing me is the signal issue. It's to the point where I can't even make a call sometimes and we live in a major city.

    I didn't really take notice to my signal strength and all that but usually I had single digit asu and upper 70s for the dbm
