If you have signal issues...

We all know of the signal issues some of us have had with the Nexus. VZW even knows there are issues. Not all the phones are bad though. I went back to Best Buy and swapped for my third Nexus, and I have a winner this time, and it's even better than it was on 4.0.2. I'm having (and keeping) a strong 4g signal. Also, check out the screen shot. It's been 2-3% without signal. My two other phones were anywhere between 38-65%.

So just keep swapping (phone and SIM both) until you get a good phone. There are good ones out there, just be persistent. My Razr Maxx is back in the desk drawer for now and I couldn't be happier with the Nexus.

The thing I noticed with this phone is, it's very anal about signal strength. If the signal isn't good, it will show it in the dBm or signal bars. The iphone will show 3-4 bars but just perform bad. I'm just wondering if the phone detects bad signal faster.
