    Anyone know if an update was pushed recently? Like maybe in the past couple of days. I just noticed I don't have that bouncing 1X thing and my signal is 5 bars now at home. it used to be 2-3 bars from the 2 Tours I've had.

    no update came out yet.

    when an update comes out, you would know about it, you would have to download it through your dexktop manager ot through your phone by going to options, advanced options and to wireless update if pushed OTA.

    I'm on sprint and last night I was getting 4 bars at my comp when I usually only get 2.

    It could have been a tower/network update silently pushed out.

    The over the air programming thing could help to do occasionally too.

    I keep hoping for one I'm in possibly - don't crucify me - their biggest market (the Washington DC/NoVA area) and I get 2-3 bars, max, at my house. 20 mins from the nation's capitol, which I think is unsat.

    I trust CB, HoFo and BBF will be abuzz with news of an pushed update if it had rolled out overnight. So, no I don't think it's out yet. But I will say the Tour gets the worst reception of any carrier, any BB, here in DC. (I also carry a 8703 on Verizon, and I consistently get 5 bars with it...I don't think it's Verizon, just the Tour)

    Any info on an impending update? Anyone?

    Agreed, try *228 and select option #2 Update your roaming capability. Then see where the signal is at, if it wants to go back and forth, remove the battery while the device is ON, wait a minute and replace. See if the signal gets better, let us know...

    I tried that a few times its a common widespread tour issue. I can be right next to a tower and it will do the same thing...come on software update.

    You can also go into your Options> Mobile Network> Update Profile or Preferred List. This has worked wonders for me
