I don't know if this is related to the Z10 dropped calls issue, but I've noticed that my carrier signal strength jumps from full bars to (let's say) 2 bars to the big red X for no reason as my phone is just sitting there.
This may be related, but I was also making calls recently, and my phone quality (although normally awesome I must say) was essentially zero as if I were driving into a tunnel (you know, that choppy digitized sound). In reality I was sitting across the street from one of my carriers towers.
I would welcome any ideas...I'm running OS 10.1.0.1720 official on Telus.

Thanks for input. On your mention of LTE I decided to turn off my LTE radio, and the carrier strength seems rock solid. I'm almost always at full strength, and it doesn't bounce around for no reason. I may need to give it a couple more weeks of testing, but so far so good. Although I don't get that great HD calling, I also don't have the same issues.
From my standpoint, this is a definite LTE issue.

I suspect that's true. I will have to figure out how to turn off LTE. Bell has that here in Victoria BC too, except that it's not really strong in Victoria -- for whatever reason. I generally have a very poor cellular signal area here where we live, no cell phone can be used very easily, I have to go upstairs to a certain spot, and for sure a tunnel is going to affect your signal! I have read online that the weather, and leaves on trees which contain water, affect it, and we have an overabundance of trees here in this suburb of Victoria.
