Default Alt NMLL Trick on 8700

Please Login to Remove!

When you hit Alt (half moon) NMLL on a prior BB's it would turn the signal strength bars into a number. Anything under 100 was a reasonably good signal. Just tried it and it doesn't work on the 8700. Anybody got an idea?

You can also see it in Options, Status and it will tell you your signal strength in dB
