    Default [2.1] Is it me or is signal stronger now in 2.1?

    After I upgraded with PwnageTool 2.1 to FW 2.1 my signal is now one-two bars stronger than it was. Anyone else experienced that?

    I'm having about as many dropped calls as before on T-Mobile US at my home. I am at the corner or a coverage area, but it seems worse.

    Bars don't really matter, bars are a marketing trick. Signal to noise (static), network traffic and dropped calls are all more relevant.

    Maybe a "Placebo Effect"
    But i think the signal bars itīs better now on 2.1
    But as goodluck4287 says...itīs doesnīt matter too much

    The battery lasting longer and quicker response may be related. Slow keyboard response, slow contact opening etc. may have been caused by rogue processes running in the background, slowing things down and keeping the processor active and using battery power.

    Visit apple.com. They say 2.1 has stronger signal and better battery life...

    Update includes:

    Decrease in call set-up failures and dropped calls
    Significantly better battery life for most users
    Dramatically reduced time to backup to iTunes
    Improved email reliability, notably fetching email from POP and Exchange accounts
    Faster installation of 3rd party applications
    Fixed bugs causing hangs and crashes for users with lots of third party applications
    Improved performance in text messaging
    Faster loading and searching of contacts
    Improved accuracy of the 3G signal strength display
    Repeat alert up to two additional times for incoming text messages
    Option to wipe data after ten failed passcode attempts
    Genius playlist creation
