    I remember my Sprint Treo 700p having a maximun of 6 bars. Is that still true for the 755p?

    My 755p only goes up to 5 bars.

    That is weird because the 700p is supposed to be almost identically to the 755p in terms of the phone application. Anybody else has seen 6 bars on a 755p?

    Are you counting the tall one on the left that looks like an antenna? I get six including that, five without.

    I'm in a low signal location now, but I'm pretty sure that mine shows six and the 650 showed five.

    I do remember noticing that it was different.

    If it's really that big a deal, you can always take a sharpie and draw another three or four more bars on your screen.

    I have a screenshot of my Treo 755p. Do you guys see 5 or 6 bars here?

    Well, are you counting the first one? If so there are seven bars.

    I get 6 bars when I roam for some reason (Sprint isn't that bad in my area) but 5 bars when on the Sprint network.

    Photoshopped


    This page shows 6 so it might be true.

    I've never seen 6 on mine.

    I can definitely vouch for the 6 bars.

    Is this like the Amp in "Spinal Tap"

    "Yeah, But my phone goes up to 7 bars."

    Where I live it seems that the roaming network is more likely to be the stronger signal, but too often the 755 chooses Sprint's network.

    Is there a way to force the 755 to select the roaming network over the Sprint network?

    This is something I have never paid attention too...only on T/C. lol

    I saw 6 bars on mine this morning while downtown.

    I then ran a speed test from http://www.dlsreports.com/mspeed and got 167 kbit/sec. This seems slow for EVDO. What are other people getting with 755p?

    156 kbit/sec with 4 bars

    Are there other speed test sites I can try?

    Just did a Speed Meter test at http://2wire.com on my 755p and got 487.10kbps.

    Neat site. 566.20kpbs for me.
