    My name is pcs800 and I am a new droidaholic...

    [crowd] hi pcs800

    Now that that's out of the way.. My wife bought herself and I both an HTC Hero about a month ago. I love mine, but she's not so techie and since the reception on it is horrid compared to her previous Razr 2, she is thinking of returning it.

    I started looking for a way to boost signal on these things, which led me all over the planet without answers. Now someone is suggestion to root the phones and install a custom OS like this. Will that give me the ability to push more voltage at the internal receiver or something of the sort???

    :welcome: to the Droid Forums.

    hmmm signal issues. Well, have you updated your PRL's? Try *228 option 2 and see if that doesn't help you out.

    How bad is this signal issue? Is she getting dropped calls? Does it happen in all locations? It could be a tower issue. If you're getting a good signal in one are and bad in another you can have Verizon do a trouble ticket for you. Call customer service if that's the case and explain it to them.

    We are not on verizon. I cannot do a *228
    Our provider is local, but same provider as we have had for years. All other phones in the past have had great signal.
    My signal sucks too but I like the phone so much I don't care :) Yes we gets dropped calls, etc.

    Nothing? Maybe I am in the wrong place. I was looking at bugless beast as a rom, it lead me here for forums, does anyone know anything about it? I really need some help here, I am obviously a noob at this. But I am also an IT expert so it should come easily.
