    Hello everyone

    Less than a month ago I bought the eris switching over from at&t. The phone is alright, but my solitary complaint is the lack of service I get on it. Comparing it to other VZW phones like my friends blackberry I never get nearly as good of service as they do. Is this a common issue? Any fix?

    Thanks

    yes sir, did you ever compare your signal strength to other verizon phones? Is it the same or does the Eris just have a cheap antenna.

    I did notice a bit of an issue when in my car using built-in Bluetooth but day to day seems fine. I'd see what a techie says at a store.

    Has anyone else noticed a weak signal using Verizon Note 3? I rarely get over 3 bars and when talking at a grocery store today, I lost all signal just a few steps in. When I had my Bionic, I had full strength in the back of this same store.

    Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated. I tried changing the mobile network from World to LTE/CDMA to no improvement.

    FYI, I got the update today as well but this seemed to be the same before and after the upgrade.

    No signal problems at all. Full strength all day long unless I go into Krogers Supermarket or our Local Target store.

    Yeah, it was Kroger for me. Don't know if there is something wrong with my phone or what.

    It is not your phone it is the Store. I had the same problem with my BB Storm, Gnex, and Now my Gnote3. In Walmart I have a very strong signal. At home and work strong signals. I am thinking it is the metal and concrete of Target and Krogers that mess with the signal.

    This is not specific to your type of phone, but I noticed with a couple of my phones, excellent signal strength as indicated by number of bars when I first turned on the phone. Immediately when I tried to initiate a call, no connection, down to nothing. This would happen so often (like always) that I didn't think it was a coincidence. So frustrating, but I never followed up on it. I would certainly hope that the problem has to do with the buildings, as Preach2k suggests, rather than something with your device.
