Signal Strength in dB

How can I find my signal strength in dB on a Z10.  Most phones have a test mode to access this.

Re: Signal Strength in dB

I also tried to find a shortcut for this.

I found an app in the App World called Signal. I did not try it yet, but it has good reviews.  From what I saw, t has the very low price called free. I did a search for signal strength to find this app.

 

If I do find a shortcut for this, I will certainly post the solution.

Re: Signal Strength in dB

On 7.1 and lower BlackBerrys you can hold down the ALT key and type NMLL and the bar graph changes to db, but this does not seem to work with my Q10 either.

Will look for the Signal app on App World

Re: Signal Strength in dB

Can you please tell me which signal app? Is that the Signal Booster App in BBWorld? In BBWorld the Q10 is not indicated as a compatible device for this app.

 

Thanks
