    I noticed something odd. I have it sitting on my desk next to my verizon Phone. The Verizon phone is pegged at solid max signal. The Sprint phone will sit at max signal, then drop to no signal or 1 bar for no reason (it's not being moved or anything). Then suddenly rebound to full signal again. I have been watching this for a while now and it puzzles me. My Verizon phone does not do this. Has anyone noticed this before on Sprint's network. By the way I am on the 12th floor of the building and my window is less than 5 feet from me. It seems that there is a definate cycle to this bouncing, it happens every few minutes. It's just odd I tell ya.

    Is it a Samsung? Samsungs have been known to do this.

    yes it is unfortunately a samsung thing. not every samsung does it; in fact some people with an n300 say it gives them the best reception ever. i had an 8500 and it would do this; though some people i knew with the 8500 didnt. the newer models should be better off.

    however people I know with sanyos and kyoceras dont have the issue at all; ask larry he has his kyocera and after hearing enough good things about sanyos i bought one and it is excellent. it is an unfortunate issue with certain samsung models that is being worked on.

    hey CALADOR....ive been speaking to samsung 8500 users.....take it in to the store for a software upgrade.....unlike the PRL you cant do it over the air....a lot of users say it has helped the signal issue.
