dare reception


Jul 17, 2008, 9:57 AM
anyone else having reception issues with this phone im on my 2nd one and keep dropping calls when my 8350 never drops calls

i do notice that my phone fluctuates in service when im sitting stationary...kinda weird. Although, i havent dropped any calls. Anyone's service bars fluctuating like mine?

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).

tri band was for digital and analog. analog stopped in february or march, so that wont effect it

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.

Have you checked your software version you have. They have out in my market v05. When I got my phone it had v03 so that might take car of it for you??

Take it to your store and ask them to update it. It is free and can't be done over the phone like PRL Updates. *228

Don't hold the bottom of the phone. That's where the antenna is. Hold it near the top. It does make a difference. Oh, and it's All There In The Manual.
