    I notice I only get 4 bar most of the time. I rarely get 5 signal bar. Is this normal? I have an iPhone 5 AT&T.

    Not unusual. I have the verizon version and rarely get 5 bars. At home usually 1 to 2 bars.

    I usually have 5 bars where service is spot on, which is not everywhere but most places here in ct. I'm on Verizon btw

    Normal. It depends on where you are. My bars go from 5 to 1 around the house.

    I have a Verizon iPhone 5 and rarely see 5 bars anywhere. Only a few areas. Only get 1-2 bars in my house.

    I think the iPhone 4/4S might actually have better reception than the 5 because my girl gets 2-3 bars in my house and 5 bars in a lot more places than I do and she has a Verizon iPhone 4.

    It shows the signal strength of the currently connected network. 3G and "o" will have a much further reach than LTE will.
