[Q] CM7 - does it help signal reliability?
First thing's first - I can honestly say I love this phone. I've had it for almost 2 months now and have never had a complaint... Sure, the signal doesn't always look good on the bars, but I've yet to drop a call and reception has always been good .... I thought...
Two days ago I noticed that under the battery consumption it showed that I was without signal 92% of the day while in the office. I had never been told that anyone was unable to get me on the cell until I asked around after that. Slews of people said they call me but it always rolls to voicemail.
I did at least 2 dozen test calls yesterday and what I'd say that it was alarming at best when only two of those calls actually rang through.
When I got home I watched the signal meter closely and reset the % of time without signal by fully charging the battery. At home I have 3 bars consistently. Come 9PM, which was about 3 hours off the charger, I was without signal 58% of the time. Again, I asked around to my usual callers - four people had tried to call me and all went to voicemail. I severely questioned that, until I called my voicemail and each of them had left messages - and I had not received a voicemail waiting indicator.
All of that having been said - is it any better with CM7 ? The phone is rooted and ready to play, but I am hesitant to install a pre-beta build on the phone when I depend on it for work.
Thanks so much for any feedback!
