    I just took a reading on my Treo 600 and 300 by dialing ##33284 and got the following:

    Treo 600:

    RSSI -95
    Rx -93
    Tx --46
    Tx Adj --63


    Treo 300:

    RSSI -98
    Rx -157
    Tx -10
    Tx Adj -126

    It was mentioned previously by a poster here that RSSI stands for "receive signal status indicator" and I believe it is in db.

    Not sure what the other parameters are and how to interpret the numbers but it is noteworthy that they are quite different between the 600 and 300.

    My experience with my 600 is that is a notch better than my 300 in RF performance. With the 300 at the 1st floor of my house I get 0 to 1 bar with routine dropped calls and intermittent "no service" indication. With the 600, I get 1 bar and have not had a dropped call yet or the "no service" indication.

    for this unsolicited but very well received info. I'm very encouraged now that the 600 will work in my house. I have exactly the same situation with my 300. Can't wait for my 'awaiting shipment' order to say 'shipped.'

    I forgot to mention that the above readings were taken at the 2nd floor of my house where the signal is a bit better. If I took them at the first floor, the numbers would be different. In my experience, when the RSSI is somewheres around -107 to -109, that is the window where I would get "no service".

    I get an average of -105 on the first floor depending on where I stand. I never loose the signal on the 2nd floor. So i would consider myself in the border downstairs. When I get my 600, I expect i shouldn't loose the signal on any floor or any room. Kewl

    My T600 currently shows:
    RSSI: -58
    Rx: -58
    Tx: --52
    Tx Adj: --63

    This is at the same spot where my T300 shows:
    RSSI: -73
    Rx: -233
    Tx: -0
    Tx Adj: -127

    This difference does not also demonstrate how much CLEARER the T600 phone audio quality sounds. I have had about 450 minutes of use on the T600 since Friday night (when I got it from Handspring - Love you guys!) and have dropped maybe 2 calls - in elevators!

    Truly amazing. Now if only Sprint PCS would get SMS and Business Connection out the door I'll be happy.

    I already know, I'll love this new gizmo.

    Thanks for the info.

    I just went downstairs with both phones and the 300 had RSSI 0f -107 and the 600 had -103. Do report back and tell us how your 600's doing when you have it in hand. I think it will do fine.

    has anybody seen a 300 with better readings than their 600?

    Hope not.

    On average, my 600 is 5 db better than my 300. I no longer lose the signal throughout my whole house (read previous posts). YEY!!! Thanks Handspring.
