Weak modem? Poor connectivity, dropped calls after stock upgrade.
After picking up an i717 for wifey from ebay I proceeded to root, and install CM10. Well I then flashed UCLF6 Modem but it proved more trouble-no connection, weak signals if any, rebooting. I tried a few more from this list
but with the same issues.

I decided to re-flash the original back UCMD3 but save for reboots the phone works but with a weak connection. It's quite a pain to converse cos calls quality is just poor. Finally I just hooked it up to kies and it has stock 4.1.2 with UCMD3 modem. But the calls are steal weak. I have the same i717 phone with stock 4.0.4 with UCMB4 modem. It has the same weak signal. We are on a Tmobile MVNO solavei. I think Tmo signals near my house are kinda weak that's what I am left to think.
-Do stock roms come with modem? I am just wondering if I have the correct modem on this phone since I had flashed a bunch them prior to STOCK restore.
-Is there anything I can do to improve the signals, quality of calls?
-I understand the UCLF6 modem is the latest and greatest. Is it recommended for for stock 4.1.2? I haven't tried it on the current setup, due to to time constraints. What do you guys have? Both phones are rooted.
-Which is the best modem for this unit?
