    after reading this, i laid a piece of tape down over the micro sim tray, and then cut out with an exacto knife. leaving only the pary of the sim try that come into contact with the sim card itself covered and it worked! i havent been able to drop the signal like i used to. although ive been able to drop some signal by holding the phone in my left hand, i still retain 3 or 4 out of 5 bars after protecting the sim from grounding itself to the chassis. thanks man!
    I made it ra1n...again

    Same here.... Still drops when touching the seam. I have found that touching the "death spot" while in the middle of loading a large website (ny times) it will stop the progression right when you do so. I am sure that the metal on my sim is not touching metal in the tray. The trays as you will all see are already coated on that side with a non conductive material.... No go

    Spoke too soon. Doesn't work. Going to Atlanta this weekend so I'll see if actually having coverage that's worth a damn makes a difference.

    Hello? He's an Apple Genius!

    I tried the tape trick and it didnt work for me. Signal dropped like a lead balloon! Ever since upgrading my 3GS to 4.0 and then getting an iPhone 4, I've noticed I am not getting 3G speeds as much. Mostly Edge. Can it be iOS4?

    sorry to burst peoples bubbles but this isnt the reason. I to thought this could be the culprit a few days ago and i was going to jump on the inter-webs and find my moment of fame but then i double checked. If you look at the sim tray there is a layer that is non conductive. take a multimeter and touch the non-conductive spot and then the outside of the tray. Sorry to everyone that had their time wasted by this. And the few that cut their sim cards

    I did the 'tape mod' and to my suprise I got a SIGNIFICANT bandwith improvement. Download speeds nearly doubled, uploads went up a tad, ping the same. Same app, nearly the same time of day...

    Im going to record a video of the speedtest with the tape, remove the tape, and do it again... I never got a speedtest in the 2MBIT+ range on my iPhone 4, 3G, or 3GS at home. And did with ease with tape over the sim...
