    Like we could with a sidekick- network status- it would give you a reading of the current signal strength.

    Im just wondering if we can do this with Treos(750)?

    SignalMeter is what I use on my 700p and all my treo's before that. But since you are on the 750, no idea.

    I tried doing a search for treo 750 strength meter or RSSI meter, and found nothing. Is there any software out there(preferably free? ) that can do this?

    Does Cingular and the 750 have a phone codes like the Sprint 700P, where one of the values listed is the RSSI number?

    Dialling ##33284# on a Sprint Treo 700P = Debug Parameters, w/ the RSSI value at the top

    (for those of you new Sprint users now tapping this number on your dial pad. . . . . -68 = "you are standing under a tower", -110 = "you have no signal strength bars on the display and are about to lose service", numbers in between those are, well, in between those extremes . . . . . .)

    Ben JoeM,thanks for signal info.,I just purchased Slingbox pro&downloaded the now availible beta software to palm os on my 700p.Since I live in an apparrently weak evdo area signal strength is an issue because it causes the 700p to lose audio/video when using sling at home,fortunetly I did nt purchase sling.to use at home or for my treo for that matter.

    This little script will give you that and more:

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...&postcount=402

    You will need to download and install MortScript for this to run

    http://www.sto-helit.de/index.php?mo...=view&entry=65

    ...then place the script in the \Windows\Start Menu\Programs folder
    Palm III > HS Visor > Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 750 > Treo Pro > PrePlus GSM

    so a -96 isn't too good, and that makes sense since I cannot get over two bars and frequently have less with numerous dropped calls. I like Sprint except for the coverage at my house

    oops, his first rev of the script didn't include it... the one in this post does:


    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...&postcount=431

    Since he didn't attach it after making the changes, I went ahead and did it. Just rename the .txt file to .mscr and and put it in the same place and it should work for you.

    thank!! it worked. with 3 bars at home, I got a strength of 90 to 100.

    now I am assuming this is relatively good since its close to 70? or am I barking up the wrong tree?

    -68 is the best I have seen with -110 the worst. . . . .

    being a 42 digit spread . . . . -90 is in the middle, with -100 being in the weaker end of the gene pool.

    I said 90 to 100, NOT -90 to -100.

    no idea because one said if its 70, its really good, and you said you got 98 and I had 90 and 100, and those were postive intergers. NOT negative intergers- so Im just as confused as before.

    -98,-99, and -100 at home...lovely -90 upstairs

    I would assume that they just left the "minus" off of their displayed reference. . . . .

    So far the range I have seen on my signal strength has been -68 (strongest) and -110 (weakest).

    I'm truly confused now, I'm seeing 4 bars but have 90 to 100 signal strength.
    internet is good, and constant.

    My frame of reference is a Sprint CDMA Treo 650 and 700P. T-Mobile and Cingular GSM devices may have different scales. . . . . .

    Sorry, I cannot help any further than that. . . .
