    Default where is the antena?
    A quick question...
    Can anyone tell me where the antena is in the iPhone? When I'm in my living room and my iPhone is on the couch it gets a full 5 bar signal. Sometimes depending how I hold it I can get "no service" or anything from 1-5 bars.
    If I knew where the antena is then I could make an effort to keep my hand away form it and keep my full signal!

    Cheers...

    If you search on you tube there are quite a few vids where the iphone is taken apart and they show all the physical features.

    If Im not mistaken it runs vertically on one side of the phone. but I could be totally wrong.

    well, everybody says it is in the black piece on the back at the bottom.

    And I saw a diagram or a guy holding it different ways and when he wasnt covering the black piece, he had more service..

    But I also could be wrong.

    I just watched a couple of take aparts. It seems the antena is the back plastic, and its cable runs right up the right hand side.
    Thats probably why I get no signal when i hold it flat in my palm. I'll stick with 3 finger tips and a thumb!

    Thanks for the replies though
