    Not sure about the bars but the going to 1x in normal and it should go back right after. On VZW? If so to a cell update by typing *228 send, then option 2 let it update and reset

    I don't think the going to 1x is normal. My phone never goes to 1x unless I'm in a bad area. If *228 opt. 2 doesn't help try a factory reset. It got another guy up and running earlier.

    Seeing the same thing here.. Reminds me a lot of my D2G, except that rarely went to 1x (but it did go there). Also on VZW.

    EDIT: Just did the *228.. Will see what happens. Automatic reboot too.

    I don't know about the dinc2 but I'm on the original dinc and every time I send a text whether in my orig messenger or now that I'm rooted and use handcent it goes to 1x sends and right back to 3g. About the bars, what's your signal strength?

    No I mean in your about phone settings. Should have a signal strength section. Has a negative number.

    The other reason I mentioned the signal strength of my X is that the misses wants an Inc2. I really like the look and feel of that phone, but the signal on the Inc1 sucked and I want that not to be the issue here. Anywho.

    We picked up the miss's last night and I have been comparing it to my X for the last 12+ hours. It is slightly less in reception by 6 on average by never more than 8. It just seems to be in the signal indicator where the large difference is (which is essentially just that - an indicator) so, so far so good out here in Western Michigan.

    I don't know why I love the feel of that phone and given that Blur (even gingerbread blur is so blah) is disappointing, this is a nice phone for those who want a straight up nice phone and not looking to customize drastically. It's very nice out of the box.

    I'm normally in SE Michigan, but currently in SW Michigan (South Haven). The only truly dead spots I've seen are where I've expected them to be. I'll have to pay a little more attention though..

    Yeah, so far no dropped calls and what I expected but then again there hasn't been a ton of usage. She will back east of GR tomorrow and will get more feedback (if it sucks - I promise there will be feedback).

    Hah, yay for us SW Michigan people! I live about an hour south of GR, gets about the same signal as my OG Droid did, maybe a little weaker at points, but overall it's variation I'd expect anyway. Very happy with this phone so far, it's what the Thunderbolt should've been all around.

    Yeah 131 has got some crazy spots for a major highway running through the state. My office in GR is literally 2 steps left or right to having a signal or not. The office is in a no zone that has a tower 8 blocks down the road, but because the weather towner (WZZM) and the "foliage" as they say, I have to sit at certain angles when I make phone calls even with the Droid X so that 6-8 might be the difference in getting anything or a little something.
