    Hello Team :)

    OK this is a NO BASHING the OP thread, I am just trying to be helpfull.

    When you get a NEW MODEL iphone (or for me at any upgrade)

    DO NOT RESTORE FROM BACKUP!!!!!!!!!!! That causes problems if you are changing hardware

    DO, RESTORE AS NEW PHONE!!!!!

    No this will not magically fix all of your antena issues, however it will fix most other issues including proximity issues, and battery issues....

    Please before you bash give it a shot :)

    Love ya :)

    The irony of all these reception issues is that I barely use the phone

    After testing out my iPhone 4's battery this last week since I purchased it, I noticed something. The phone feature of it is the one I use the least. I mean having a full time workweek in which my phone isn't needed (Hospital) I realized that I may have the ocassional 1 hour conversation with the girlfriend, +/- a half hour with parents/family. Most of my usage is straight up iPod touch features. With the trend of text message and email I think it's ironic that the phone feature of a cell phone probably gets the least usage for my generation.

    Maybe thats why the reception issue hasn't really affected me.

    I originally set mine up as a new phone. I already knew about restoring from a backup from a different phone with an different OS would be inviting similar issues here and there.
    But so far I'm golden. Just lucky I guess.

    Took my wife's iPhone 4 to the genius bar, they said the same thing.

    I think about 50% of the problems are caused by this alone. (non hardware problems that is)

    I don't place many phone calls either, but the big problem with the phone for me is that you are more likely to hold it in the problem way when interacting with the screen (i.e. anything other than a phone call).

    I agree , this is really a non signal issue thread ( I should have made that clear)

    The signal issue is a whole other story, everyone has that that I have seen so far. I am talking about the proximity sensor and the battery issues. I would change the title of the thread if I knew how
