iPhone 4 signal please help me decide.
Ok buying a new iPhone tomorrow, currently, have the 3GS, which am quiet happy with, but am in a complex situation, with vodafone uk, wereby, I need to decide within 7 days, whether to choose an iPhone 4 or something else. Now the only worry I have is the signal of the iPhone 4, which I have come to get used to on my 3GS, and can live with it, cause I bought the handset cheaper, however the iPhone is going to cost me at least a thousand pounds in contract for 2 years, so want to make the right descision. So like I have said, having read a lot of info and it appears, thez, not much difference, in terms, of the signal, between, the 3GS and iPhone 4. Infact most are actually claiming better signal, on the 3GS. So is this the case, please please, help me out, with this answer, as I desperately, need to make a descision, on whether or not to stay, on my 3GS, based on signal.

In low signal areas it can be a hinderance. However in moderate -> good signal areas it's great!
Basically because it's external it is more sensitive. It makes good signal areas better, but if you put your hand over it, it makes bad signal areas significantly worse.

with the field test mode available again theoretically you could walk into an AT&T store and go the display models and use an 8gb 3gs and an iPhone 4 and test the reception in a common location
just dial *3001#12345#* into both phones and compare the numbers where the bars used to be
the higher the value the better so -76 is better then -96
but in my experience IP4 is king
