Default Upgraded to 4.2.2 now really bad signal

Is anyone having signal issues with 4.2.2? I had a samsung skyrocket before this galaxy nexus and my signal was always good like -85dbm with this nexus in the same location I get -103 and no signal at all. If anyone can help with this please pm me. I'd be willing to shoot you a couple bucks thru paypal for the help. The phone does this all over the place, in the house and even outside and it is causing me some major battery drain.

I check cell stand bye in the battery settings and it shows 32% with no signal with the phone being on for 7 hours. I am missing all kinds of texts and calls, texts going thru very slowly sometimes not at all. I like the stock rom but if I have to go with something else I will. The phone is unlocked rooted with CWM and is being used on t mobile.

In the same place as the skyrocket this phone is getting really bad signal if any at all. Thanks in advance

Best way is trial and error.

I've seen in that list a lot of them are listed as european, australian, canadian nd north america. I am still having zero to 1 signal bar inside my house and it is tanking my battery hopefully I can get this figured out tonight

Make a backup via cwm or twrp and flash the original firmware. I assume that if the connection is still bad, your phone itself is the problem. I guess your family dont have the problem of bad signal?

The original firmware? Which one are you talking about? A link would be appreciated
I am on my fourth radio now, getting 1-2 signal bars and -103 dBm, better then it was but not what it should be

I am inclined to think that it really is this phone. I will try just about anything tho to see if I can fix it to where I am getting good signal tho. Just really crazy how the Skyrocket would get almost full bars and -83 dBm in the same spot as this GNexus
