Right now in Alabama I between 105 dBm and -115. Thanks.
Edit: I just watched it go from -115 to 0 to -95 to -85 in a span of 5 seconds

I'm assuming you're running an aosp rom? I don't think it's a defect in your device because the s3 is known to have poorer reception than other devices.
If you haven't tried it yet, a touchwiz rom will give you better and more stable reception.
Other radios might give you better signal, I know mb1 works better for me in my area than mf1. Trying them wouldn't hurt.
