    For those who has upgraded to an iPhone 5, is anyone cell/wifi indicator in numerical form, as if it was jailbroken and changed in sbsettings?

    Looks like field test mode, with the acception of the wifi signal.

    Go into dialer and key in *3001#12345#* and tap call. See if it resets it back to bars.

    Yes, happens when you restore from backup.
    Setup as new if you can.

    I don't know if this was rhetorical, but the simple answer is that the numbers give a more accurate picture of signal strength.

    Wasn't being rhetorical, just seems like the tiny extra bit of accuracy you get isn't worth how terrible looking it is.

    I can toggle it by just tapping on the numerical number and it reverts back to bar strength and wifi indicator strength..

    I had to reset my network settings once after using a T-mobile sim, the reset didn't change it back..

    Does anyone know how to clean up everything jailbreak related in a restore point without starting a new iPhone setup? Or backup SMS to restore on a new iPhone setup?

    This worked for the cell signal.. Wifi is still stuck on numerical values..
