    Which radio should I use?

    So, I hear a lot about the different radios for the Atrix, and I'm wondering:
    1) how do I check my radio version (is that done by booting into Fastboot)?
    2) is there a specific radio that is better than others? I hear the new AT&T update has wifi issues (I'm running Ba2TF btw)
    3) what's the purpose of different radios? Is there really a performance improvement?

    Thanks!

    Go to your menu>settings>about phone and scroll down to see your Baseband Version ... that will be the radio version.

    Different radios work differently for everyone. Only way to know for sure would be to try them out. If you're not having issues, don't bother

    I tried both the .36 and .37 radio. I ended up settling on the .36 radio, but like Carl said try both and see which works best for you.

    I use .37, but don't really see any difference from .36 or .30 -- but, I didn't run any kind of tests other than personal usage and observation.

    What kind of differences should/could I notice? More bars, faster data, what?

    I switched from .30 to .36 and data speeds seem a tad faster from the speed test sites and it seems to hold the signal better. I tried .37 also, but switched back to .36.
