Not mine, mine usually stay pretty solid setting still. If I move around it will show immediate changes which I love. I used to have ATT and some phones would wait forever before changing from no service to 1 bar.. it's like they would give up searching for signal once it hit "no service". My Dare will show immediate change (cause I'm in a fringe area) Parts of my house work, some don't 🙂
The problem is that GSM phone don't connect to a tower till you hit send. Sometimes it shows full coverage then you hit send and aw hell no service, no rescue for me. My Dare is a total signal hog, stronger than the voyager I had and way stronger that the MAXX I had
Theres no real answer to that really, but It might be that the DARE is only dual band (and not a tri-band or a QUAD band). Mine works great with-in the big cities, once I hit the outside skirts of MA, I get no signal (then again, no carrier has towers up in the area).
Today I went to take my dare back which they could not do because they were so busy. I drove 38 miles and dropped 5 calls. This is unacceptable. I have for 2 yrs used a moto 325 which I never would have thought was that great a phone and guess what as soon as I got home I reactivated the old moto.
