I have a Samsung Fascinate SCH1500 and I can't get more than two bars (-98 db). Any ideas of how to improve this? I've tried the *22890 to no avail. Would flashing a new radio help? Everything I see says EH03 so I'm guessing that's what version I have. Thanks for any help.

Its all about location,,, good luck.
two bars (-98 db) that is very normal for inside my home. Outside or in my vehicle is usually better, like 3 bars -87 db
the fascinate just has a crappy radio/antenna,,, and development stopped on it back in 2011 for anything official from samsung.
EH03 is the newest and overall best.
but if you are comfortable using ODIN or Heimdall :: here http://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=8244
is the link to all the available radios if you want to try use the files ending in "".tar.md5"" for odin or "".bin"" for heimdall
