    Knowing what we know about the reception issues and the antenna system in the new iPhone does anybody really believe that this physical problem can be fixed by a software update? When your fingers ground the antennas, they ground the antennas and that's it. I mean you can't beat physics no matter how much of a hack-wiz you are right?

    It depends if it's an actual reception issue, or a calibration issue.

    You have to keep in mind, the little bars aren't simply a graphic representation of how strong the signal is, those bars are based on all sorts of various factors. Such as frequency and channel, Signal to Noise etc...

    But if the software THINKS there is no signal, it doesn't really matter if there is one or not.
