    just real quick and simple I have had problems with my cellular antenna strength on my 3gs since day one Apple exchanged the phone. I went to AT&T exchanged my Sims problem appears to be solved, I have waited since yesterday no major signal strength fluctuations. this cost me 20 minutes of my time and $0. Those that are having this issue I would try it regardless of carrier.

    oh yeah I took my jail broken phone in all customized AT&T didn't say a word.

    Sweet, I might try this. I have to exchange mine for a stuck pixil anyhow.

    Maybe I'm just an idiot ... How does swapping your SIM change signal strength? I would assume that signal strength is 100% based upon your antenna.

    It's not unheard of. Your sim is the "gateway" to the network. If you have a faulty sim - you're connections could be compromised

    actually


    it was one the suggestions made at the Genus bar I just never bothered to fallow up on it. when I explained it to AT&T they didn't bat a eye. I would see so many signal fluxes before I could go from 5 bars to nothing in a blink of the eye. I still watching to see. that's why I wanted to wait a day before saying anything. I am not saying it is a fix just worth trying.

    It is worth trying.

    It didn't help me, but the AT&T guy knew exactly what I meant and didn't even question me. He just did it.

    But apparently that wasn't my problem.
