Very poor reception

I have various Verizon phones from Droid X to Accolade sitting right next to a Samsung Charge. They get 5 bars 3 constantly. The Charge only 2 max, usually just one.

Download speeds with my droid x about 1.4-1.5 meg. With the charge 400-500k max.

What is up with this?

No one else having this issue? Every Charge I have sold have the same thing only 1 to 2 bars of signal but all my other Verizon phones always have 4-5. Data speeds are horrible on this phone about half the speed of my other android phones. That's the same with every Charge I have sold.

I like the phone but I am seriously confused why all of them have the same issue.

No issue with reception. My signal is constantly 3 bars and up. I have Thunderbolt right next to it and same signal. I know others with Charge and all have good reception. Also throughput is killer on Charge. I get 7+ MB. What site did you use for testing throughput?

I used every test app I could from the market. I've run speed test on every Charge I've sold and they all give the same results and none of them ever go over two bars. I switched them from LTE to CMDA mobile networks and the same result.

Very odd.

I did not use apps from store. I used a site called mobilespeedtest.com

When you do the smaller file size test the throughput is low, but if you do the 1MB or 2MB size file transfer the throughput is substantially better.

I also have noticed that depending on where I am I get different results. I am guessing the network has different back haul depending on the site.
