Fascinate never reports a signal greater than -86 dbm. Bars bounce from full to none. Time without signal at least 10 percent. I compared to 2 models in store and noticed same issues. where droid phones in same store reported full bars and -60's dbm. I live less than a mile from tower and my wifes motorola droid stays full bars -60 to -70's dbm. Yes I have tried the *228 option 1 and 2. Im on latest prl. Did samsung put a poor antenna in the fascinates? Or is this a baseband issue that will be fixed? The gps takes at least 2 to 3 minutes to lock where the motorola is instantaneous. Its like I have gone back to at&t with this reception.
My is the same way. The salesman informed me at Verizon that Samsung do not make good phones with good signal, Imagine That!
the salesman does not always know.
i have had my current samsung phone for almost 2 years.
i have never had a signal issue.
samsung builds solid phones
there are occasional software issues, but the hardware is great
