    Well my sister's phone occasionally does the same thing mine does, but not as often.

    BTW, why would the phone be at fault if it is brand new and it gets a excellent signal as soon as I go about 2.5-3 miles from my house?

    Also, this is my third 8000. :eek:

    I would venture to guess that the network is at fault here. I think if you give it enough time you will see that all of the phones have the same problem equally as bad. You might not notice it as bad on one phone or the other right away but over time I'm betting you will see it average out to be the same. So the question is what if anything can they, or will they do to fix it? Probably not much.

    Gamer, closely observe both phones, and see if the other one is doing the same thing. If yes, than the tower is at fault, but if not, then I really don't know what it could be other than what I already suggested.

    Ok larry.

    If that is the case then what would fix the problem? Another tower?

    Thanks for your input.

    I appreciate it.

    Ok.

    I will observe both phones over the next two days and see what happens.

    Hopefully my phone will be good as new.....since right now it seems like it is.

    I will keep everyone posted. :)

    Yes the only way to solve this is to add another tower that's either closer or that's pointed in your direction more. This of course is assuming that a tower is not malfunctioning or is out of service. Re-adjusting the panels on the exsisting tower could help but that would be a longshot to happen as carriers will very seldom make those kinds of changes.

    Or adding another panel facing Gamer's house.
    Say, didn't the phones work well before?? Then there must be something wrong with the tower since Pilot pollution doesn't start to happen from one minute to the other. Is your problem worse during peak times, like rush hour?

    The problem is usually worse during the week especially in the afternoon and evening hours.....but I don't know if it is pilot pollution since it just started happening recently (within the last 12-14 days).

    But today the phone "seems" better so I don't really know what is going on. :confused:

    Like I already said, I will monitor the phones over the next couple of days and if it still does that (to both phones) then I will call Verizon this coming up week.

    Today is Sunday, usage is usually lower on Sundays(at least here in SLC where everyone other than me is at church on sundays ;) ). The fact that it's worse in the afternoon and evening leads me to believe it has something to do with capacity/high usage, but it's strage how this starts happening so bad all of a sudden; maybe something is wrong with the cellsite.
