I ordered (2) 16GB iPhones on the 3rd. I had a Droid X before this and always got at least 4 bars of signal. We live in a small town of 26,000 people. Our iPhone's signal is usually around 1-2 bars. I have zero problems with mine receiving/making calls, sending/receiving texts or web browsing. My wife's phone is a different story. She drops 2-3 calls per day when making calls from our house. Anywhere else in town seems to be just fine. I just thought it was strange how 2 alike phones could be so different when calling from the same place.
