As I already wrote was almost too obvious that the poor GSM signal indication was done purposely on Verizon request.

Well, now I have the proof



Just edit build.prop and change the line

ro.mot.phonemode.vzwglobalphone=1

to

ro.mot.phonemode.vzwglobalphone=0

then reboot the phone

and your three or four stolen signal bars will be back.

Don't forget to say cheers to verizon

For the record I just tried to do the same on the D2g which is affected by the same "feature" and it works perfectly too...

Indeed.

Likely there are also other global models that can be fixed too, for now I wrote it just on the D2g room because I have it (i got it after the d3)

I posted right away link to your post here over at D2G general, since we were quite a few people over there annoyed from that "tweak" of Verizon since pretty much day one. Sorry for the cross post - I didn't notice you already posted in dev threads. Thanks again!

Did you notice UMTS signal indicator became 5 bar from 4 bar?

Mind = blown.

Confirmed to work here too, i'm on the Liberty ROM btw.

It's quite sad too, considering 1 line can fix your GSM reception. This makes me wonder, does it do anything else too, for example will it make it unusable for CDMA networks, or is it really only affecting GSM signal indication? That would make it even sadder!
