Default Verizon 7130E users in Bergen County NJ??

any of you out there notice very erratic signal strength? My signal is going all over the place, holding 1xEX no probs, but the strength is very unstable...

The strength always fluctuates as you move between coverage from towers. My wife's non-Blackberry Verizon phone does the same thing so I don't think it has anything to do with your BB specifically. I almost always have at least 1X service and usually 1XEV service.

And if you haven' updated to the latest Verizon firmware for the 7130e, I'd suggest doing that. I don't think it has any effect on signal strength but it seems to handle moving between 1x, 1X and 1XEV better.
