    not having much trouble with my radios. am coming from an iphone4 too, and am having the same 4/5 bars that i did there as well. only now, i have LTE data speeds of 20+mb/s download to go with it.

    no dropped calls yet, or troubles getting calls to connect. maybe it has to do with your area? btw, i am on AT&T, so maybe that is a factor

    Grab the new radio that comes with the OTA over at XDA and flash that via Odin. It improved my signal.

    For you guys on Verizon how are your signal bars? I rarely get five bars unless I'm at home.

    My signal isn't all bad, but it isn't as good as other phones in the house.

    Putting the SG3 next to the Rezound and Dinc.

    Inside the house:
    -85 4asu
    -76
    -77

    Outside in the same spot:
    -82 4asu
    -72
    -71

    Never really monitored my iPhone 4, but the bars were always full, and I've never dropped a call for the year I've had it.

    I must be one of the fortunate ones i drive 56 miles one way to work each day and i have had no signal issues or dropped calls with my s3.I am on Verizon and i drive through a tunnel everyday and not so much as a blip in signal. Other providers still drop in the tunnel accept at&t. I laugh when my friend tells his wife "let me call you right back we are going through the tunnel". He is always going on about how i overpay for verizon (yes they are the devil but they just work and i am willing to pay for the piece of mind) so i don't miss these little gems to give him sh*t.

    I had no issues with my old iphone or razr maxx either both always worked when i needed them. I have not had a signal issues since my samsung fascinate. That was a truly horrible piece of junk. That miserable device single handedly kept me from even considering a samsung device for years. In fact the only reason I have the S3 today is that I received it as a gift. I am very happy that I did because I am very pleased with it. I feel it is the best smart phone at the moment. It is certainly the best smartphone i have ever owned.

    Hopefully a software update or network expansion will fix problems some folks are having.

    So it's like MyFaves on WinMo, then. It only appears if you're signed up for the plan?
    Awesome you are seeing this. Iphone at my house worked fine. 2 s3s sucked. Droid maxx works great.

    Weird or youre a fanboy i guess which if a fanboy i understand....no problem.
