    I am not new to blackberries and went to a Hero for a few months and am now back to the 8530. After using the device, which is used, for a few days I am noticing my signal is terrible on this device. I had near full bars with my Hero and maybe have 2 with my 8530. (Sprint) I have updated the Profile and PRL, installed several different ROM's, including Hybrids, and have done countless battery pulls. I have 2 questions for you all: 1, is your signal on your devices worse with the 8530? 2. How can I look and see what PRL I am running?

    Do you all have any info or suggestions I could try? Please, be as advanced as you can be - I can handle it.

    Which OS revisions have you tried specifically?

    VZ's .508? Sprint's .654?

    .654 and .484 I did figure out how to check my prl and I am running the latest version 60665. This just puzzles me because I have never had bad signal with a RIM device.

    My signal was pretty good, maybe give VZ's .508 a try.
