    Reception issues.-imageuploadedbytapatalk1354547954.078066.jpg
    Is anyone else on AT&T having this reception problem? See the AT&T symbol? That's all I get sometimes and it won't go away, forces me to turn my phone off then back on.

    Really? Okay that's better than turning it on and back off. What causes it?

    According to att I have massive amounts of degraded towers around me. However my 5 is the only one that has this happening. The 4s and both 4's only fluctuate bars a little. I don't understand why my 5 is this bad.

    I actually returned my Verizon 5 and went back to my 4s because of weaker reception issues.

    I have a 5 on Verizon and had both wifi and cellular reception issues. A 4S and a 4 in the same spot, also on Verizon, had no issues. The wifi was so bad that my phone would drop the connection sitting two feet from the router. After *many* trips to the Genius Bar and two phone swaps I figured out that the issue was with the cases I was using. Any case with metal drastically cut my reception. Non-metal cases are okay but reception is best (especially in weak coverage areas) with a bumper or no case at all. Your mileage may vary, but I thought I'd share.

    My house always gets crappy reception but I have been able to make calls with my iPhone 5 I couldn't with my 4S. So that's something.
