Some say the torx screw fix works, some like the biz card trick others have put stickers over the SIM card. What's amazing is that we have to be creative in solving a problem that should have been perfected before being released to the public. VZW should be ashamed that they delivered a half ass product.
i USED to get 1XEV (3-4 bars in my house) now since i activated my wifes new storm i am getting 1X signal and at times it gets 1XEV. I have never had this problem until today. Both of our phones are getting crappy signal now. When i reactivated my wifes phone it got messed up and put the new #s to my phone number. Verizon fixed that and we reactivated them and now they get 1X and for maybe a few sec at a time i get 1XEV. Ahhhh i leave in a few days and this is just annoying me!!!!
Amen brother. I am waiting for my 7th storm to arrive tomorrow, which I had to pay 19.95 for saturday shipping. One of my 2 storms had the most crazy thing happen to the screen yesterday, it was inverted and upside down and flickering all sorts of distorted colors, their suggestion at tech support... wipe the phone and do not load anything back on (ahh.... dip sh*t... not even my contacts or the 300 appts I have in my calendar). NOPE. Corrupt file. How is that even a suggestion??? As JL said, it is amazing that we have to put index cards behind the battery, download programs to simulate battery pulls, so memory is regained because of programs that are loaded on the phone to separate it from a regular bag phone... :irked:
