    When I hold my iPhone 5 on the left side, Bluetooth seems to cut itself off when I remove my hand it comes back on. I don't remember my old phones having this issue.

    I'm experiencing the same issues, except mine cuts off when my hand covers the bottom rear.
    Really annoying, especially when I play music through bluetooth.

    My bluetooth cuts out if I have the phone on my left side!

    At first I thought I was having LTE issues, that the signal was dropping out while I was streaming spotify. Then I realized it was happening when listening to an Audible book that is on my device.

    I have the JF Freedeom BT headphones, and the radio is on the right earpiece. When I have the phone on my left side, the sound constantly drops out. If I move the phone to my right side, it works fine. I NEVER had this issue with any of my older iPhones, and I've had them all. I find it hard to believe that the BT signal can't make it through my head!
