    I live in an area where I ALWAYS have Edge, and NOTHING better than that.
    As soon as I popped my SIM in, It went straight to 4g. Not as good as LTE when I'm in other areas besides home, but that's a HUGE jump in signal. I didn't post this earlier because I wanted to see if it stayed on 4g the entire time. It did not drop to 3g or edge at all. As you can tell, I'm pretty happy right now, even though I'll still use wifi when I'm home lol.

    So... does the iPhone 6 give anyone else better signal? Or am I crazy?

    I haven't gotten mine yet but I am expecting a gigantic jump in signal because it is compatible with more LTE bands than my current phone (I have a 5 now). I live in a LTE area but am lucky to have 3G in my neighborhood so it must be a different frequency than my current phone can get.

    So no, you aren't crazy - the 6 and 6+ are compatible with more LTE frequencies and therefore many people may find they have a signal boost.

    That's great to know! Another good excuse for why I upgraded from the 5s LOL
