    Hey All,
    I made the jump from 9780 to 9900 and before using it, I upgraded the OS to .440...
    I don't know if this an OS version related thing but I noticed that my 9900's WiFi signal is weaker than my 9780's.
    In other words, I get stronger WiFi signal on my 9780 than on my 9900 and where I get 3 bars of Wifi on the former I now get 2 or 1 on the latter.
    Any thoughts?
    Thank you kindly.

    Thanks for your reply. That's weird, do you think it's software related?

    I have a better WiFi range with my 8520. Sad to say.

    Agree. My 9900 range is def lower then my old 9780. Can't connect to wifi in my bedroom as I was able to with my 9780. Also more frequent drops.

    Exactly!!! Same thing guys!! And what bothers me is that I think this consumes more battery and BIS data!

    Wifi uses less battery for me and uses no data from my plan.

    No difference with wifi reception between my 9780 and 9900. Same router, same distance...

    9780 running .666




    9900 running .440

    Hey Phil
    When I'm close to the wifi router I get similar values on the two phones. I notice the difference in values when I'm far from the router or in another room.

    There are numerous posts regarding this issue - use the search function to see them, rather than starting new threads about the same old thing.

    How about contributing with something useful for a change? I mean you already went through the trouble of typing what you did.... Why not include a couple of threads of which you speak while you're at it.
    Thanks anyways and sorry if my thread bothered you.

    I contribute many more solutions than you do - yes really. In fact, none of my posts are questions about the 9900, but many are answers and solutions.

    Rather than being lazy and waste everyone else's time here by asking them to do your work for you...use the search and do it yourself. That's exactly why they put search functions in forums...

    Do you need me to teach you how to use that function too?

    Maybe your next thread should be titled "How do I use the search function here, because I'm too lazy to deal with it on my own", or "Can you all search out a solution to my problem, because I'm too lazy"

    wow.

    Same here r.santa!!!
    He must be very proud of himself knowing how to use the search button! He's special!!!
    I won't answer him in respect for all you kind polite people here.
    Let's just stay on topic. I sincerely apologise if I did anything wrong and wasted anyone's time.
    This issue is annoying as my phone drops the wifi signal very often around the house.
    I hope it's not a design issue with the antenna of the phone.
