    Hi everyone, my iphone on T-mobile UK goes from a signal with full bars, which it can maintain for roughly 24hours, then it will drop to 3 bars. My data speed at full bars is around 8-10mbps where at 3 bars it is around 2-4mbps.

    When i restart my phone the signal goes back up to full bars for 24hours then back to 3 bars.

    In summary i have to keep restarting my phone/resetting network settings every 24hours for the phone to maintain full bars. I use the my tethering plan so i need to have the maximum speed possible, this is why I'm about frustrated having to keep restarting my phone everyday to maintain the high speed!

    Anyone have any ideas why this is happening?

    Someone got bored before the third paragraph.

    OP: Are you in the same location for all this or does the pattern coincide with your movements?

    bars are very poor way to tell how much signal you have . What is your -DBM ?

    How do you reset the network settings? Also, how do you tell the DBM? (and what is DBM?)
