    I got my iphone 5 on launch day
    i find im one of the lucky ones that got a perfect iphone without having to exchange it 78 times :D

    but, i find my signal sucks
    my iphone 3G had better signal reception than my new iphone!
    is there anything i can do or tweak to get better signal strenght?



    thanks alot

    Is it the LTE signal? If so, that is a different frequency than the 3G signal and may indicate a different signal level.

    What carrier and location?

    Sorry, I am not all that familiar with the Canadian carriers.

    Do you know someone with an iPhone 5 and the same carrier to see what the signal is like on their phone in the same location as you phone?

    It could be a carrier issue as well. I had to call AT&T here in the US to get my iPhone 5 to work properly switching from LTE to 4G/3G and maintaining a data connection. I would try calling your carrier first and see if there is problem with your account.
