I did a quick search and couldnt find an exact story so if somebody else has posted something similar, sorry. So here's the story... I bought a 32gb iP4 and had the same reception issues that has plagued a lot of the new phones. When I bought it, I knew I needed another line on my family plan and just thought I would use the new line for the iPhone and give my old line to the family member. However, I have learned that since my old number was used for business, I needed to keep my old line and give the new line to the family member. Well, I took my old SIM card and did a homemade cut down to make it fit the micro SIM tray. When I cut it, I accidentally cut the bottom part about a millimeter or more too low so I thought I jacked it up, thinking the SIM wouldn't register. Well, as luck has it, it worked and I no longer have the reception issues. Nice.
