    Do you actually see bars stoping or do you just have no bars to begin with? Because when mine is in a case it's just fine.

    Edit: sorry I didn't realize it was a video. Thought it was a pic. That sux.

    This is more than a bit disheartening. :/

    yes if affects calls, I'm not left handed but I do hold my phone in my left had and naturally have always held it they way Steve would prefer us not to becuse its the most secure way to hold a phone worth 500. and when I do the call signal gets worse and eventually drops out unless I change to fingertip hold which does not feel secure at all.

    The inconsistencies between phones is interesting. Starting with 5 bars, wIthout the bumper, my iphone loses 2 bars, with the bumper I only lose 1. However, in some places I will completely lose signal w/o the bumper but remain at 2 bars with. Cant figure out why the differences in location other than perhaps signal strength. My opinion is that the bumper merely IMPROVES things, does not FIX them.

    I always noticed my bars bouncing up n down even with a belkin clear case from day 1.

    Without the case the bars drops fast, but with the case it take 10-20 seconds to drop.

    this is the best (yet worst) iPhone and I think I'm keepin my iPhone 3G
    I'll wait for a better, newer, proper iPhone ( call it 4G or iPhone 5) I just hope they include 4G network capability like HTC's Evo phone!
