    I just flashed the new radios and my signal has gotten much stronger. I can even get 4g in my house now, which I couldn't get before. I was just wondering if everyone had a positive impact or if some got worse. I remember with the OG Droid some radio updates were pretty iffy.

    also got better 4g coverage, got 4g before the update at work but it would go away after leaving the parking lot, now i have 4g until im entering my city which is a extended 4g area but i get no 4g here. btw what is this extended 4g junk, is it just a waste so verizon can say they have 4g in certain areas, i get no 4g whatsoever,

    I have had 0 change with the new radios. My signal strength is the exact same, (both dbs and bars for what its worth). Wifi and 3g/4g swap speed are the same (was fast before, so not much change). So i guess i am right where i was before, hoped for better results, but cant complain that it didnt get any worse.

    Just updated my radio to it, in my break room at work where I got switching every few minutes, it was able to hold a bar or two of 4g for the last hour of the day. much better.


    hope they keep improving

    Never had any reception issues. I flashed the new ones a couple days ago and the switch between 3g and 4g is much smoother. I've definitely noticed extra bars as well. Still can't get 4g inside, but my house is built like a fortress.

    Mine only improved a little, still having issues. I love this phone, but the signal strength I received on my Thunderbolt and Bionic was so much better. I really hope they work this issue out.
