Usually what would happen is you'd get interference if radio frequencies are too close to one another. perhaps your phone is reading incorrectly. There is just no way you'll see those numbers.
Also to the other guy who talked about -69. For the most part if i remember 2 or 3 of the 4 angle their antenna's at 90 180 and 270 degrees. So depending on where you were during your travel would determine your signal, as well.
-35dBm would be literally setting the phone next to the panel. I call baloney.
Also - LTE is typically measured in RSRP, which is approx ~14dBm higher than RSSI (which is what 1x, and EvDo is measured in). So an ideal LTE signal is around -70dBm, while it is still usuable until around -120ish (varying by device.)
EDIT: I believe Verizon, for some weird reason, is the only carrier that measures their LTE in RSSI. Maybe to make their numbers look better? (Since it's pretty much a -14dBm difference.)
