No signal on iPhone 4
What is up with the Verizon iPhone4? There are 44 PAGES of complaints on the VZW community forums about "loss of signal and searching for service". Any ideas? I considered an iPhone on VZW, but not with these problems.

I don't have one yet, but people on the forum say that Verizon is saying to call Apple and Apple is saying to call Verizon. Neither company is accepting responsibility. I would like to have one, but not until this issue is fixed. I realize that some people aren't having problems, but a lot of people are.

I have both an AT&T and Verizon iPhone. Overall performance on both is comparable. Where one has bad coverage, the other generally has bad coverage as well. *228 option 2 is something CDMA users have to deal with. Unfortunately, it is important to keep the Preferred Roaming List (PRL) up to date.
Everyone's experience with the iPhone will be different. You can use the experience of other users, but keep in mind your unique circumstances will dominate. Your best bet is to take the iPhone for a test drive and use it as you would expect to. Use the old rule of thumb that as long as you are happy in the majority of places you need the device (home, work), that phone should meet your needs.

sorry about that - I had reread the thread because that was a bad assumption on my part and edited my response before I saw your response - sorry again!
and I went and deleted all my excess posts so I don't junk up the thread

I've had mine for several months now with no issue with signal. I do lose data connection every few weeks or so, but it works again after a reboot. I don't really consider this a problem since I used to have to reboot my previous phone daily.
Edit: Just remembered something that might be useful... Certain cases cause issues. E1ctron comes to mind. It totally destroyed my signal when I tried to use it. If you have an aluminum case and you're having signal problems, try removing the case and see if it improves.
