    OK, after some help/advice?

    My 8310 seems to have a very poor reception! A friend has the same model, os, network etc all the same yet wherever we are (phones side by side) my signal is always around half of his! I dont know if I have issues with my phone or if this could be software related or what has caused this!

    Anyone that could offer any help and advice would be very welcomed.

    Sometimes the bars don't accurately represent the signal strength. Ignore the bars and pay attention to the actual signal strength in Status. If the signal strength is showing drastic differences, consider reloading the OS. Sometimes that resolves the issue.

    Not sure that it will help but on your home screen you can type Alt+nmll to change the bars into signal strength. At least you can monitor the signal strength.

    Yeah, I tried that in the past. Can they make the numbers any smaller!? Lol. I needed a 10x loupe to read them.
