    That's logical. When you're using voice or text, it's using one of the channels. The other (1x) channel is still open (or somehow available to the system). That's why you can get a ring when you're browsing. If you browse with a non-EVDO device or in an area without EVDO coverage, new callers go straight to voice mail without notice to you.

    I wouldn't worry about the bars too much. At least on my GTP, they don't reflect the actual signal strength that closely.

    This has to do with the chipset on the phone and the software interpretation of that. The signal is there, it just doesn't show it properly on the signal indicator.

    seems like the indicators on this phone isnt so accurate (same with battery).

    Outside of the innacurate meters, I've actually dropped quite a few calls in places my Centro didn't have a problem. Very similar to my experience with the Pre.
