Default Poor 3G reception on OS's .190 and .234?

Please Login to Remove!

This could be fluke but has anyone noticed poor reception on 3G to the point it searches for the network on OS's .190 and .234? I realize that I don't have the best reception in my house but on .162 and .216 I didn't have this issue in the same spots in the house.

To the OP, I did have the same experience with .190. It was what pushed me to .210.

I have not used .216. that being said I have found better reception using .190 then .162 and far even better reception using .234

This may also be due to the 850 switch over to 3G as now I get consistent 3g reception anywhere in my basement apartment.

Before I could not make calls consistent(5 dial attempts to connect) as I would get phantom 3g then switch to edge then drop out. I was still using .190 when the 3g 850 mhertz switch occured about a 1month ago.

.234 is far far more sensitive antenna imho.

still running .190 over here, and I haven't really seen too many issues. I have had a few here and there the first few weeks I had the device, but not so much since. I switched to .190 the second day I had my bold. In general, I have seen more issues when I was on the road. If I'm home or in a place that I am only walking around, I have not had any seriouse signal issues or drops.
