MMSiphone and I have both noticed that no matter what FW we have been on be it 1.3, 1.4, 2.0, or 2.0.1 that every time we plug in our iPhones they get noticeably better reception, and a bit more when they are plugged in with the dock. We both have EDGE iPhones, and this just boggles me. My theory is that because it's plugged in it could possibly amp up the power of the antenna, but if that's the case I would like to know why there isnt a setting to have that extra "boost" even at the expense of battery life, or at the very least a file we could toggle and have it use the "boost" all the time. Have any of your guys noticed this too?Tune in

no, I've never noticed this (nor do I believe this actually happens). This reception business is bordering on stupid. Next someone'll come around and say that their reception is better when they hold their phone upside down.
