    Basically the death grip exists on the ViPhone. At this point does anyone hold the phone like that or even care? Discussion welcomed.

    You can do that with any phone - hold it "just wrong" and you will attenuate the signal.

    Funny thing. When I saw this earlier? I tried it. Was at four bars. Try the death grip? Five bars.



    And the WiFi issue? Try hard enough on any device? You'll impede performance.

    As for the topic, you know they have a strong position when they don't allow comments. Either way, I'm loving my Case-Mate POP case and there goes that problem anyway!

    I've had the VeriPhone for about 24 hours now. At my home the Verizon signal is marginal. Usually works, but sometimes have to stand by a window. No problem with the new iPhone. Good signal all through the house. Been through 4 different Verizon phones before this, and reception on the new iPhone is definitely better than any of those.

    That's exactly what I said. No one is going to grope their phone while talking on the phone, its ridiculous to make such an ordeal about it

    My signal at my house for 3g used to be kind of bad, not it is better, in the 3-4 bar range as opposed to 0-2. I have it great though because I use 3g where there is good signal (i.e. the city/not my house) and I have very strong Wi-Fi at my house...like:
