    Hi.
    I have switched the signal indicator from bars to number. No problem with that.
    The problem is I don't understand what the numbers represent.

    Now it shows -70 on where the bars usually appear. And got an extra -2 under it.
    Can someone tell me what do they mean also whether it is the larger the number the better the signal?

    Thanks

    Larger the number means the stronger the signal you have so far example:

    -70 is better than -120

    I believe the extra -2 below it would be the signal strength for wifi connection

    Can you tell me what is considered to be a good signal? like -50 or -10?
    Wifi is not on though

    I think-70 is the highest it goes. I've never seen it any better than that.

    I'm usually -83

    Well it's corresponding to the bars. As long as you aren't like -105 or -110 then you should be good as far as decency.

    Does anyone know the meaning of the -2 under -70?

    Can you post a screenshot? I have never seen an extra number.

    By the way, here is a good chart from RIM that explains signal strength.

    Is it part of your background? I've never seen that.

    I just tried mine, I get the small number under and it does represent your wi-fi signal

    That's odd as you can see my wifi is not on...though I admit that it being wifi signal is the most likely answer
