    I get reception issues with my iphone in Philly, DC, and North Virginia. I can't make or receive any phone calls if I hold it with the "death grip".

    I also lose my wifi signal when I hold it that way too, even if I'm standing near the router.

    Am I the only one with this problem? Does this warrant an exchange for a new iphone?

    I can kill my wifi signal when holding the phone landscape (my hands cover the wifi antenna). I have a case also.

    the wifi antenna is the top "seam" and the 3g is the bottom left "seam" i dont have the wifi problem unless i death grip the top seam but my 3g does go down to 1 or 2 bars when i death grip the 3g seam, take it to apple and im sure they will replace it
