I am renting an apartment for two months this summer, somewhat away from most of civilization. I don't get cell phone service when I'm inside, which is rather annoying. For the past few weeks, I've been setting my iPhone to forward calls to my Skype number, and then turning it to airplane mode when I come indoors. However, I recently discovered that when I put my iPhone in the dock, I _do_ get cell reception inside my apartment. This is not just a freak little burst of good signal - I can make and receive calls just fine, even surf the web over EDGE. If I take it back out of the dock, the "No Service" banner appears. So, if you're having reception difficulties in your house, try putting it in the dock! I haven't had a chance to test whether this also happens when the dock is unplugged from the wall adapter, or when connecting directly over USB (sans dock).
