    Well, other than flashing it, my service guy told me to just revert to
    original installation, you need to type in some code, but he also told me to
    change the connection from 3G to GSM. I heard most people complained how it
    has a crappy signal, I did not experience that, but he said that it is due
    to your service providers that are still not ready for 3G. THEY have crappy
    service, not the phone. So when you switch back to 3G, your battery should
    last longer, and you should have better signal, and I'll see if that will
    fix my SMS problem. For now it takes less than a second to send an SMS, will
    see if it will keep that way.

    hope this helps

    Thats not true, I have an N70 here and an N80, I stick my vodafone sim
    in the N70 and get full bars at home GSM, I stick the same sim in the
    N80 and I get max 2 bars GSM, they can blame the providers all they want
    the proof of bad signal is sitting in front of me.

    The problem is, that may not be proof, that is, the number of bars
    showing on the displays may or may not correlate well with the signal
    strength in the front ends of two different receivers. How's the actual
    performance?

    Right, and also, both were on 3G? Maybe N70 was on GSM presetted.

    I get breakup and dropped calls with the N80(GSM) if I move it during a
    call, so I cant walk around my house with it, I can hold a call in any
    room and walk about the house with the N70, and I actually find the 3g
    signal higher on the N80 than I do on the N70, I get no 3g on the N70
    but 1 bar on the N80, I was totally shocked at this when I got the
    phone, it looks like nokia are telling porkies, my sister in london also
    got an N80 a month or two ago and sees the same problems with the signal.

    Strange, I get no such breaks. Maybe it really is realted to a phone, or a
    certain series.

    Sorry can't remember. I tried to google a bit but couldn't find it. Maybe
    you could post it somewhere and get an asnwer. Or someone else here? Hm, or
    just call your Nokia service center.
