Signal Strength Question
I just changed my Signal Strength from the bars to a numerical value. It says 102. I cannot find a scale that tells me what that means or whether its strong or weak. can anyone help? Thanks
RIM will tell you that anywhere between 45-85 is good. 86 -100 is acceptable, but above that is not considered stable service.
Research In Motion. You know, the company that makes the Blackberry and it's OS and other software?

You can change your signal status from bars to numerals by pressing and hold Alt and type N, M, L, L,
This will change the five bars to a numeric value (dBm)
Good values range from 50 to 90. Higher values indicate that your BlackBerry is experiencing poor coverage.
I have had discussions with people on here before because the best I could get was -80 displayed on the BB. This was being any where from under the cell site to 1600 feet away. I know at this point it should be around -50 so I am not sure if there is a limit as to how strong this feature accurately shows.
