Weak 4G, one bar. Friends 4G has full 4G, 4 bars; EVO is 1 year newer.

Weak 4G, one bar. Friends 4G has full 4G, 4 bars; EVO is 1 year newer.

Sitting right next to each other, My EVO 4G signal is very weak, one bar; My friends EVO has full/very strong signal, all bars?!

I stopped and started 4G antenna,  then rebooted, same result. Check the settings (thought he might be on a different tower or something like that). No alternate 4G - one only on both phones.

The difference is his phone is one year newer (The 3D camera version); mine is last years EVO 4G (with the separate HDMI out & kickstand, which I like!)

So I' don't understand why there is such a drastic difference.

Have you tried to update the profile? (menu>settings>system updates>update profile).  This will reset your network settings in case it's just a provisioning issue.

Not any notable difference but I'm in the house; Never get a good signal inside.

Now I know what to do / try next time.

Thanks!
