    Has anyone noticed a weaker signal after the upgrade to ICS from GB? I have a Razr Maxx on Verizon and the signal was great before the upgrade 3 to 4 bars with 78 to 81 dBm and 1 to 2 bars with 99 to 110dBm. I am not just talking bars and dBm because I now have dropped data and voice calls. I do not live in a 4G area so this is part of the problem. Any advice? Thanks!!!

    PS I have talked to Verizon and Moto and they have no ideas :( I also have a second Razr Maxx with GB and it still has the better signal in the same places...

    Hmmm... I have noticed some signal loss since the update, but not to the extent where data and calls are lost. I am in Tallahassee, though. Phone lingers on 3G longer. I had some issues where data was dropping, but it was before the ICS update. I suspect the PRL was updated alleviating the issues. Perhaps they need to update the PRL for you. It is sent over the air... maybe a new SIM is in order. I didn't bother complaining because I HATE visiting the store. But my data doesnt drop anymore (knock on wood)...

    Maybe they are working on the network in your area?:headscrat

    I didn't notice any signal loss on my Vivid after upgrading to ICS from GB. Actually, it seems that with ICS it prefers to stay on LTE longer. I'd say its better.

    I don't know if the signal problem is because of the upgrade or with the mobile but, if you Google about the issues with ICS upgrade you will come up with many complaints after they have upgraded their mobile to ICS.

    I didn't notice any signal loss on my Galaxy S1 from Gingerbread to ICS. Are you using a custom Rom?
