Signal Issue's ?
I have a buddy who has a flip phone i think its a Razor from the same carrier
Telus and when he is at my house he has unbeliveable reception where as I have the 9530 and I do not get signal, is there something i'm missing?

The Storm is light years ahead of the razor!
I will look into it and see if that is the case
Just throwin this out there but could it have anything to do WiFi saturation in your neighbourhood?
Actually as a former sales man lol. THe motorla branded phones(and I dont remember the tech stuff so be easy on me) have a slightly different style signal reciever than any other phone. The batteries on them die much quicker because of this but they actually seem to 'reach' for signal where other phones recieve it. you could always try updating your PRL's
I went from a Telus Motorola Razr to a Telus BlackBerry Storm and found that I get pretty much the exact same reception with both devices. Sometimes my Storm is a hint better (e.g. in the basement of my work building) while sometimes it's a hint worse (e.g. in the elevator of my condo). But generally speaking, I've found that the Storm has been pretty solid.
My suggestion? If you're with Telus, call *22803. Key in 1 for English, then 2 to update your phone's roaming lists. This will update the PRL software on the phone. The phone will confirm a successful download and then hang up on it's own after beeping 3-4 times in quick succession. I usually follow up OS updates with this and it drastically helps. This should help out!

I've got a question that may/may not have been discussed already. With VZW, updating the PRL is completed by *22899. As far as I know, this is across the entire VZW network. The instructional that you posted, is that relative for the entire Telus network as well?
If it is, I find that very informative and would like to say thanks. Hope you continue to add to the forums here.
I just tried *22899 and received an invalid entry from the automated system then pressed 2 and my roaming capabilies were updated so looks like Krypto is right. I'm on VZW in south florida.
