    I'm lying here I'm bed nerding out with my iPhone and I noticed a way to get more bars of signal strength. If I hold the phone as I normally would with my hand wrapped around it in a grasp, I'm getting one bar. If I hold it by it's top and bottom left corners between my thumb and middle finger of my left hand, the signal strength jumps up to three or four bars.

    This might be useful to anyone I'm a poor coverage area who's dropping calls.

    Haha, I noticed this helps with my wifi connection on the 2G iPhone. Nice alu back but it's a signal killer :)

    I just tried this (I have 3G turned off), and it didn't change a thing with my signal (I have full-signal at the moment).
