Default Re: 9900 Signal Strength issue?

My manager ran some tests with the 8330 compared to the 9900.

The 8330 showed 3 bars of signal in the usual place where he would put the BB while tethering.

Then he accidentally stumbled on the solution. While cleaning, he moved the 9900 to a part of the desk he would normally not use. It went to full 5 bars of signal. Moved back to the usual place (about 3 feet away) and it returned to searching for signal then SOS.

I'll let the more electronically-minded debate the cause. My manager's happy and so am I.

I guess the moral of the story is if you find your new 9900 isn't getting service where you used to get it, physically move it around a bit.
