    I have noticed lately that I generally have 2, maybe rarely 3, bars of signal. After doing some googling, I read about dBm, and how the lower number the better. Following a recommendation, I installed "SignalCheck Lite". My ATT phone is usually between 96-101, but in certain areas of my house, like where I'm sitting now, it's at 107, which I heard was real bad. I haven't had any problems with dropped calls, but would like any comments or suggestions.

    Thanks.

    There are a few possible reasons. There might be areas in your house that have poorer reception due to interference from structural materials in the house, or perhaps from RF signals from other devices. Or there might be an issue with your local tower. Have you contacted AT&T about this?

    I have noticed from the last software update mine gets crappy service. Sometimes I get better luck if I switch out of global mode as was recommended to me.

    107 isn't great but not horrendous either. As you said you're not having issues so I wouldn't worry. I get bothered when it goes in the 114+.

    Signal strength is only one aspect, but 107 dbm isn't a problem

    I contacted ATT. they took me off/back on network, but it didn't work. Other posts here about my dBm give me hope. Thanks.

    Turn on WiFi calling and don't worry about it so much.
