    I'm sitting about twenty feet from my WiFi router and my iPhone indicator is displaying just 2 bars of signal strength. So yeah, something seems a bit wonky. However, yesterday I was sitting on my porch and had just 1 bar showing and yet was able to use my connection just fine. So maybe, as with GSM, the iPhone 4 is more sensitive at weaker signals. But if you're losing your connection repeatedly, I'd take the iPhone back and see if you can get an exchange.

    Get a case for your phone my iPhone 4 won't pick up wifi in certains spots when I take off my case. It's ridiculously it really makes a big difference.
