    Does anyone know what value Phone Alarm is pulling its signal value from? I thought it was from the RSSI value, but its not on my 700wx.

    For example, I just dialed the ##DEBUG# on my 700wx and got a 91 for my RX, but PA showed 50. However, my Rcve Sig Strength for EVDO shows around 50 under the Debug screen. It appears to be pulling its value from that.

    EDIT: Per Penguin at the PA support forum, "On WM 5.0 there is a smoothed signal value saved to the registry under HKLM\System\State\Phone"

    When I browse there, I see:

    \HKLM\System\State\Phone\Signal Strength
    \HKLM\System\State\Phone\Signal Strength Raw

    After some testing, I can see PA is using the "Signal Strength Raw" value. However, I cannot see any value under the ##DEBUG# screen that directly correlates to that value.

    After a little more digging (google) I found that this value is a percentage of the full strength signal. Therefore, its a value between 0 and 100 with 100 being the best signal.

    yes pa shows percentage. the question is where does pa get is info from to display percentage. the first guys compaired it to what info he got from ##debug# which should be the most accurate. I compaired voicecommand and phone alarm and also got two different readings.

    I guess the question is two... where does pa and voicecommand get there info?

    Uhmm I thought the OP was maybe referring to the db reading under DEBUG which would be a different number than the %

    My PA skin shows an actual numerical value which generally ranges from 50-100. I know on CDMA networks, the lower numbers are better for the RSSI.

    Here is a screenshot which shows 46 for the value.

    I will probably end up doing that. I hoped that someone with a 700w/wx might know, but it looks like everyone is as stumped as me on this one.

    Does anyone know how WM5 calculates this value? I will see what I can find out as well.
