    So I take it this is a software issue, if 3gs users are experiencing the same thing all of a sudden, probably Ios 4? Maybe the baseband or something, all I know this is pretty much crap. I mean it's a phone, it should do the most basic thing a phone can do, make a call... with this great decrease in bars upon touching the phone, I can't make any calls whatsoever without it being dropped.

    I heard if you gently dip it inside a bowl of cherios that the anttenta forms a coating

    maple syrup works better. Plus its like a protective coating and iphone cologne all in one.
    And if you leave this maple syrup protective coating on long enough it becomes sticky enough to where it will stick to your ear and you suddenly have a built in hands free device free of charge.No blutooth required

    this is pretty simple, you know those gaps? Its to keep the two antennas from touching. Your body conducts electricity, so its just like making them touch together.

    Someone test this, just grab at the gaps with your finger tips to make the connection between the two. Then turn off blue tooth and wifi and do it again, it wont happend because there is no signal from the wifi/blue tooth to connect thru your fingers to the other band.

    Alright, I call either ******** or software on this one, since I was able to replicate the "reception problem" on my 3G by holding in a similarly awkward way. We'll see what happens tomorrow, anyway. Still can't wait for my new phone :]. I will, however, be checking for yellow spots on my display...

    Ok so I found out that if you apply some speed stick deodorant to the antenna, and lightly rub some lemmon juice on with a Qtip that it would temporarily fix the signal problems.

    I'm uploading a video to Youtube right now. This problem affects my iPhone 3GS. If I set it down I get full bars 3G, if I hold it i get 1 bar Edge.

    I think it's the proximity sensor twice while on a call my face hit the mute button and the speakerphone. It doesn't stay dark or freeze or anything else you mentioned.

    If my iPhone has both defects, screen and signal, I swear to ******* god, I will return the iPhone, slander AT&T, then buy either the Evo 4g or the Droid X.

    A, *******, men.

    BoostedEvo I had that problem. Just hook up a car battery to the metal edges and rub a peeled banana around the proximity sensor. Proven by science.
