    would we be able to get better signal through a software update? I know everyone is complaining and saying "come on 2.0.1" but could a update even fix signal? Isn't that a hardware issue?

    Like HTC, the iPhone has specific Modem Firmware revisions everytime they update their firmware. Thus, yes, it is impossible to improve signal through better coding.

    The reception of my 1st Gen iPhone has gotten consistently better with each subsequent firmware update. So, yes, modem firmware updates can indeed improve signal acquisition.

    Yea, I think he means possible.. If I understand his logic correctly, that is.

    :) Well that certainly is the case anyway. Yes, OS updates come with new baseband firmware = tweaks and performance enhancements.
