    Unless you have a Faraday cage and a private radio tower, it's almost impossible to be sure.

    However...
    The general consensus seems to be that:
    Newer phones see a slight signal boost, I.E. getting reception in places they didn't before, but only a small amount. Sometimes, that is all you need though.
    Older phones seem to get the above, but also have better call quality. This is most likely because they have an older phone/radio.

    What I've read is some see improved signal and speeds some don't. Probably a lot of factors come into play. I did the update and haven't really noticed a difference. Prl helped me though

    First time post here. My wife and I both have the older Optimus V with CWM 3.2.0.1 recovery and the CM7.2 rom. I flashed the radio update on my phone and do not see any improvement between mine and the wife's. I did some side by side comparisons in our house (where we normally get good reception anyway) and compared signal strength, download speed and the time to load a large web page. Both were comparable. There is one place where my phone leaves her in the dust. When I run the speedtest app, it used to take forever to find a server to begin the test and then get through the ping test. My phone is clearly faster through these areas and I saw it time and time again comparing our phones. It makes me wonder if some aspect of the 3G connectivity (not necessarily down/up speeds) was improved. I'm going to hold off on updating the wife's phone so that I can see if there is a big difference when we get into areas where reception is poor on her's. The different results people are seeing after this update may not just be the phone, maybe there's differences between towers. I'm not really an expert but thought I would throw that idea out there.

    So, I could be wrong about this, but if signal reception was improved with this radio update, wouldn't it also improve battery life? From what I think I understand, the radio uses more power in areas of poor reception, so it would use less power with improved reception? Am I right?

    I am about to pull the trigger. Just to be sure though, I am using ClockWorkMod Recovery 3.2.0.1 should this work or should I install a different recovery?

    Based on reading past posts in this thread, several of us (including me) have that same version of CWM recovery and the flash was applied without any problems.

    Right. I assume it would be near negligible, but would have some impact.

    If you have a properly functioning kernel, and and properly written frameworks, and compatible libraries, and all three match up with the radio's specifications, then you should get better battery life.

    The kernel needs to handle network state switching appropriately.

    The frameworks need to handle the interactions with the RIL (radio interface level) appropriately.

    The libraries need to have the appropriate pieces to allow each of the other portions of the system to work and interact with each other.

    Have any one not completely compatible with the rest of the system, and battery life will suffer as the system fights itself.

    Sorry for the lot of you who bricked there phones but in this world where rooting and flashing is concerned maybe you should not try experimental stuff unless you know for a fact you can bring it back. Lesileann has a Guide Thread everyone should read before anything wish it had been out in Jan. 2011 when i rooted my phone would have saved me a lot of trouble just with the one boot loop I got stuck in thanks Lesileann for all your hard work

    And to those who bricked, I know it sucks being ridiculed over something and having to pay out for another phone but that does make a good phone for developers to work on for a fix and you probably wont be doing any diving into anything face first again (well lets hope not for some there is just no hope its a human thing) but as for us aliens out there we got here by trial and error
