signal strength / data rate on Verizon

satsfied verizon user for 2 yrs… then I got the 6600. isthis happening to anyone else? everywhere I go, signal strength is much lower than with my old phone. I have dropped calls for the first time in two years. outdoors not bad, indoors very noticeable difference from old phone. data rate can vary extremely. 2 areas supposedly on broadband had 70 and 30 kbs indoors. verizon says rate varies w/ signal, so I’m back to that again.

I’m on my second phone w/ identical results. anyone else having these issues?

I am only using the data plan right now but I have found places in my area where I can’t connect with the xv6600 but I can surf with a bluetooth connection between my v710 and ux50. Disappointing!

sprint vs verizon

forgot to mention, I had the 6600 from sprint and verizon at the same time. the sprint phone had consistently good signal where verizon was low. because I’m confident in verizon, I assume the problem is the 6600 on the verizon network.

by the way, not to credit sprint data rate. they were the expected 50-70 kbs, also with big decrease indoors. their claim is to have 144kbs by yr end, while verizon claims most or all US 300-500kbs by then

I find the VZW XV6600 to have better voice signal than any other I had. There are spots that I have always had drop off and spots that I always would not get an incoming call, but just the voice mail. With the XV6600, these bad areas are not a factor. The Treo was horrible and even worse than just the known problem spots I just described.
