    Yes. This is another Verizon thread!

    But seriously -- I've had a BlackBerry Tour, Motorola Droid and a Motorola Droid X. All of them lost complete service in my elevator at work. My Verizon iPhone still holds about 3 bars in the elevator.

    So, maybe it is worse than most phones if held improperly, but maybe its a lot better than most phones if held correctly?

    I get full bars and 3G on my VZW iPhone going up an elevator in a 60 floor office building in midtown Manhattan.

    I get excellent service everywhere I go with my ViPhone. And when I hold mine in the left corner, I don't lose bars either.

    Not believable, a fluke

    It supposed to be that way. You have the redesigned antenna. You didn't really believe Apple would repeat that mistake did you?

    To tell you the truth, I was a little SURPRISED that already existing Verizon customers were acting as if the phone was slower than their old phone. Mine is not, at all. I had a Blackberry, and it loaded webpages very slow (and they looked horrible).

    Now the speedtests indicate what we already knew, that AT&T has stronger data and weaker voice. I knew this going in, but as I never had AT&T and was always with the same data speeds with Verizon: I'm only seeing improvement.

    I didn't realize there was an improper way to hold a phone until antenna gate. Since Jobs himself says all phones have the same problem, and that it's only a problem on the iphone 4 if you hold it wrong, did you test your Tour, Droids, with the proper/improper holding pattern as well?

    I've been using my iPhone in a central room of a block and concrete basement of a hospital. If the signal is any different than my Blackberry was previously, I haven't noticed it. BTW, I have no idea how to "properly" hold an iPhone. :)
