    Ok, I just did a test of the antenna on my iPhone 4. I started off with death grip, 1 bar, and held it up as far as my arm could straighten. Brung it back down and 5 bars. About 5 seconds later it fell back to 2/3 bars. So the higher you are, the better the reception.

    Death grip doesn't affect my iPhone in any way, shape or form.

    Yeah, doesn't affect me at some times.

    And the statement by Steve saying that you're in an area of low signal is true. I have 1-4 bars at home and solid 5 bars outside.

    I tried it on my friends phone, first, death grip in right hand, 3 bars, then I just held it with 2 fingers and put it high-5 bars. Then I took it death grip in left arm, 1 bar, no service.

    I've tested it in the Apple Store in Munich, and it never fell under 3 Bars, so no problem with that.

    I can go from 5 bars of 3G to one bar of Edge. So it affects my phone pretty hardcore. Good thing I wanted a case anyways.
