Signal strength?

How good is your signal strength? My almost always sits at -96 or -101db which means usually one or two bars are showing. This is much worse than my Droid which usually gave me three or four in the same areas. I have found that the fascinate has call quality issues in areas my Droid did not also.

Any one else notice this behavior?

No, unfortunately it doesn't. Not sure I can keep a phone that has these issues since I live in an area where signal is not great most of the time.

The radio chipset should be the same as the Droid aka the Qualcomm QSC6085.

Hmm. I'll have to look in to that. However, I do notice a distinct difference.

Even with the same chipset, the antenna configuration may have an impact.

Re: Signal strength?

Just a hair better than the TP2 was.

At home, it is much better, as in I can make and place calls from anywhere in the house. With the TP2 I had no service in my livingroom. At the office, still pretty much no service.

On a side note, I wonder how WiFi affects service. At the office, their is an "N" access point about 5-6 feet behind me, and at home in the living room, their is one directly below me in the basement.

Re: Signal strength?

The signal reporting is a bug as far as I know and is planned to be fixed with an upcoming update (DJ05), along with a bunch of other issues. With DI01, the signal reporting is off and will only display up to -86dBm or something like that, but with the update, it's reporting better and also the bars seem to display more accurately.
