I am posting this because I too thought I didn't have the problem -- until I tried data while holding the phone in my left hand -- just like in the ads, etc. The thing is that while my phone was still showing five bars, data download speed goes to zero when held -- just lightly -- in the left hand. I'm right handed, btw, so I hold the phone in my left hand when surfing or checking mail. So please, humor me and try this. Download the speedtest app and test your speed while avoiding he lower left corner of the antenna. Then just rest the phone in your left hand and try speedtest again. In my case, in Boston, speed drops from 1mps to ZERO -- even though all five bars continue to show! Next, travel to a place with a lower signal to begin with. Here's where I see the bars drop from 3 to 4 bars down to no service, and yes phone calls drop at no service. Anyway for those of you who report no problems would you mind humoring me and try the data test? My bet is that data is affected for everyone, while calling issues might not be.
