I have a Verizon LG VX8100, purchased in 2005 (yes it is ancient) and was in the Verizon store yesterday talking about iPhone 4S. The Verizon rep said that the older VX8100 will get better reception than an iPhone 4S since the VX8100 has an external antenna (which is about an inch long), and I would not do better with an iPhone 4S. Does this make sense to anyone? The reason I was asking is I keep dropping calls in my house with the VX8100, even though I live only 5 miles from Route 128 in west suburban Boston. I was hoping an iPhone might do better.
