    Hi,

    I had my Droid X since the release days. It constantly have dancing bars. It goes from 1 up to 4 and down to 3 or whatever random things it can do.

    I live in the state of Oregon and this happen in Portland or any rural areas. One minute i have 5 bars and the other minute I have 1.

    The wireless at home does the same. So between those two indicator its a dance!

    It totally sucks! Any have the same problem? I used to be with ATT and planning to switch over again now.. or try the Droid Incredible.

    Actually where I live it does..

    Now that I know it is a Droid X issue.. I will contact verizon and try to take action that way.. see if there is anything they can do.. Seems like Droid X might be a "rush job". I also had my battery go from 80% to flat in like 2 seconds.. what was that all about?

    I've got the original Droid and my bars are always fluctuating. I've never had a dropped call and never have noticed any network slowdown except for when I've actually got ZERO signal, which only happens in one particular building I go in sometimes.

    The battery meter probably has a learning algorithm. Charge it up completely and run it until it shuts itself off a couple times and you'll probably get a more reliable meter.

    As for the wireless signal, you might have a lemon phone, see what Verizon might to do rectify the situation. Mine drops out of 3G coverage when I stop using data for a long time, but it picks it back up when I open up an app that uses data. This might be some kind of software issue that can be fixed.

    The battery issue is a known problem with the droid and is being addressed in the OTA that is to be pushed to all Droid X devices starting today. It is not a reliable indicator of your battery power currently. Mine was at 10% on the handset and then I turned it off, plugged it in and showed 50%. Should be fixed with the OTA.

    My signal is also all over the place, but nevr a dropped call. I have the Network Extender at home and will frequently check the actual signal strength through device status. The signal is actually really great - -65dcb but I usually only show 1 or 2 bars.

    I am wondering if this is the same issue as the battery status meter as well.

    Now take it easy i just want to throw this out there...

    you all know that the bar indicators by no means is an acuurate measurement of you phone's signal since your phone uses digital signals and not analog, right? :icon_eek:
