    Curve's Reception Keeps Dropping..

    Advertisement



    Hey guys.. finally got my curve got it unlocked and running with T-Mobile, got the browsers and emails set up also. But one thing I notice is my reception keeps dropping from ONE bar to "x" then sos, then it will go back up to EDGE again.. I've never had this problem with my 8700g.

    Anyone experiencing this problem? Thanks!

    Re: Curve's Reception Keeps Dropping..

    i notice for some reason. everytime im on a call and i lean the phone between my sholder and my ear the call drops. every single time. i dont know why. but att should change the fewest drop calls thing. i had less dropped calls with tmobile and verizon i almost never dropped a call on my trust 8703 which i admitt i miss a lot. but the curve is such a sexy phone. ill deal with it for now.
    *mine also switches alot between gprs/ gsm and egde. but still it happens even with full bars hmmm

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~same here guys I have dropped lots of calls with att and this curve. Please as soon as anyone finds a solution please post or send me a message or this great phone may have to go back to att. But I guess if it's happening under tmo also than it must be a phone issue.

    I have had the same problem with my Curve. I returned it last week and am back to using my trsuty 8700 until TMO comes out with it. It would fluctuate between EDGE or edge, then gprs. It became a bit frustrating, and it happened on 2 different Curves that I had.

    What OS on the BB Curve is everyone using? I've had no problems with reception using the O2 release. The ATT OS keeps dropping calls or at least after a few minutes of conversation the phone's reception drops immediately. Very werid.

    This is also my second curve, I tried wiping the whole device last night, saved all the data applications but I will just reinstall all my 3rd party OS. I've also installed the Tmoblile German OS and I haven't experience this problem since, hope this continous.

    flash24 <- Do you have browsers on your phone? If so, are they the TMO browsers or 3rd party? Thanks!

    Re: Curve's Reception Keeps Dropping..

    I had the dropped call issue and the reception problema nd have fount a solution that's been working great for the past 2 days and running.

    Solution: open the battery door and lay a piece of foil down on top of the battery. Then replace cover. I used a folded piece just larger then the battery. So far no dropped calls, the data reception has been consistant, and no more head aches.

    Hope this helps

    Can you guys post the country of manufacture of your devices, I work with a mixture of Hungarian and Candian handsets and the problems only seem to affect the Hungarian ones.
