    I've been having problems with dropped calls and fewer bars with both the 132 v5 and 141 v5 and I live fairly close to a cell tower. I had 141 on the phone for about a week. Yesterday I installed 132 v5 and had the same problem. Today, I wiped and installed 132 a second time and the signal was still weak (1-3 bars at most). Then, about 15 minutes ago, my phone suddenly showed 4 bars and the signal is strong. I am thrilled. I hope it stays strong.

    Thanks to all those who work to make us happy!

    Just a quick update. I started wondering why the sudden increase in bars and realized that I had removed the phone from the case (Noreva) when the bars went from 3 to5. I put the phone back into the Noreva case and the bars (signal) went down. After playing for awhile, I placed the phone in a Boxwave case (fit isn't as nice as the Noreva) and the bars remained at 5. The Noreva has a magnetic clasp that puts the phone into sleep mode. I am guessing that may be the problem.

I wiped the phone and started over thinking that might solve the problem, but it hasn't. At this point (so many OSs in such a short time) I can't remember which one gave me the best reception and the most bars. There was one that was very strong (4 bars, no dropped calls). Has anyone had a similar problem and solved it?
    I would have to say the most stable OS to date was the 109 sfi file.

    If you're brave enough (I barely was), you might want to download and try the "Swap-a-Radio" program and mess with that. I am running the .132 v5 but using the .109 Radio Code. So far it seems pretty stable. Haven't made a ton of calls to test for echoes or drops, but signal strength seems to be improved.

    Swap-a-Radio is here: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/9...lyricidal.html at the bottom of the first post.

    +1 to that whenever I have an issue like that the first thing I do is swap in the .109

    battery has been pretty decent for me. I get good reception. But I did watch my phone on my car ride home. I would have five bars of 1XEV for say half mile, then it would drop to 0 bars 1XEV for like 5 seconds then go right back to five bars 1XEV, did it for ways...

    Radio file

    Thanks for the help. Right now, after replacing my Noreve case with a Boxwave case, the signal is very strong and seems to be staying high. I discovered (just a few minutes ago) that the Noreve case is a metal frame and is the cause of signal loss. It's been noted in reviews for other phones (IPhone). It's too bad because I loved the way the phone clipped into the holder and the way it felt. But, as I've said before - beauty isn't everything.

    I did download the Swap a Radio file and will use it if I have any further problems.

    After spending much time playing with updating my Motorola 710 which was 3 phones ago, I swore I wouldn't spend all that time downloading and replacing parts of a phone operating system again. I didn't have to do it with the Palm Treo or the 8830. But with the Storm, which I was so very excited to get, here I am again downloading and updating and am thankful for this forum which has given me so much help and offered me the opportunity to get a better os than the one Verizon has released.
