In my office on the 11th floor interior of a downtown Fort Worth office building, my 4S, in my pocket, with Cell Data (3G) turned off, has 4 bars consistently. I'm using an iFrogz "Luxe Lean" case with both phones. If I turn on 3G I get 3-4 bars (no matter where I place my hands..... This was an overnight change for the better with the 4S. My 4 could barely hold 1 bar in either mode. I'm so used to NOT getting calls that I keep sound on, and I've been startled several times by incoming calls. Despite this improvement, I still keep cell data turned off because for me, 3G still eats battery more quickly in standby and I really don't need the data constantly since everything (mail, other apps) updates quickly when I turn 3G on....
