    Gang,

    Can anyone clarify the notification bar decible reading values. I have found that when enabling, when I make a call the value seems to correspond to what I might see in my "about phone status" native menu. Generally for me -80 to minus 90 here at home. But, when the phone is sitting idle I see -3, -4 etc, never -60 to -105 which should be a proper value from 100% signal to dropped call value, which makes no sense to me. The minus numbers do not correspond to number of bars or anything of which I am aware. And if I turn of my cellular repeater here at home, the numbers will jump all over the place. Just curious.

    Yeah, I don't know what those are about or how they got included when they don't even remotely work. I see the same single-digit-nonsense you are seeing instead of the signal level in dBm. Maybe it's something that works on other devices but not the Droid?

    I was wondering about this myself. I saw -3dB and got all excited since I am in my basement where my signal is usually in the -100 or worse range. Then I got to thinking, wait -3dB, that would be impossible or at least nearly impossible. lol

    Thanks guys.

    And 7, I had not thought that perhaps they would work on another device. But, as I mentioned, when I am in a call they do seem to be accurate, just not when sitting idle.
