    Just so others don't have to bother wasting their life like i did. This idiot puts the iPhone 5 flat on his arm and grounds the back antenna.

    Perhaps this information is useful to people lacking hands.....

    What, you mean the signal can not pass through a human body? I will remember that the next time I use my phone while it sits on my arm, because as you know, that is a common way to hold a phone. This is so stupid that stupid doesn't describe the video. :rolleyes: Oh no! I just tried that with my Razr Maxx and lost my 4G signal. I'm writing Motorola. How dare they! It's a conspiracy. :p

    I actually put my phone on my leg all the time when I'm in class and don't want the professor too see.

    I saw someone had it on his armpit. It looks fine as he won't stop talking to who ever is that on the other line.

    I saw this video and could not reproduce the results. My signal strength remains at 4 bars the whole time. (Thank God). It must be unique to his phone. He seems a bit unhappy about it too.

    Funny. If I encase my phone in lead, it doesn't get a signal. Should I petition Tim Cook for a free case?
