    Default Getting horrible reception!

    Here for the past month I've been getting horrible reception in my area (stl) where I never had issues.

    I constantly pull my phone out of my pocket to 1x or no signal at all. I thought it was the internal antenna so I got a replacement.

    Still having issues. Got my mobile set to lte/cdma.

    Any help?

    Which are you having a problem with - your cellular signal or your mobile data signal or both?

    If your phone was rooted you could try switching to 3G using Advanced Signal Status http://market.android.com/details?id=com.cc.signalinfo just to see if it makes any difference.

    Frankly it sounds like a carrier issue - do you have any friends on the same network, and are they experiencing similar issues? When you got your phone replaced did you specifically ask Customer Support if they were updating towers in the areas where you were having problems?

    Well, it's unlikely (though not impossible) that the refurbished phone that you got has the exact same problem as your original one. Your SIM shouldn't have anything to do with your cellular signal, but that's probably the only thing in common between the two phones, so it wouldn't hurt to get another one.

    Why isn't Verizon troubleshooting this for you? That's what you're paying outrageous monthly fees for.
