First 2 choices are if your signal went down/up in 3G 2nd 2 in EDGE

  1. Went down in the experiment (3G) Choose 1/2

    25.0%
  2. Stayed the same/went up (3G) Choose 2/2

    50.0%
  3. Went down in the experiment (EDGE) Choose 1/2

    25.0%

    I have found out a solution to hold your iPhone in your left hand AND not lose your signal*

    First of all, experiment

    1. Make sure you have 3G on. To turn on 3G Navigate to Settings » General » Network.
    2. Go back to the homescreen.
    3. Note how many bars you have.
    4. Death Grip !
    5. Note how many bars you have after holding the iPhone 4 in the death grip for 30seconds.

    Guaranteed it went down.

    So, In every experiment, there's a comparison with no more than one thing changed. And that one thing brings you back to the Settings app

    1. Navigate to Settings » General » Network and TURN OFF 3G
    2. Go back to the homescreen.
    3. Wait for 4-5 bars to appear without death grip and note it down.
    4. Death Grip !
    5. After 30seconds in the death grip, note down how many bars it went down/up.

    Surprised? So there's proof that the death grip DOES exist, but not when you're on EDGE.


    This is supposed to work on MOST iPhone 4's but not guaranteed to work on all. Keep that in mind.

    I only recently received my iPhone 4 and I've got death grip nearly every time.

    Do the experiments to actually see the difference.

    how is this possible ? if im correct edge uses the same antenna which if you block with your hand, blocks the signal. if it actually doesnt show then it is a glitch in the software.

    It hardly goes down by 1-2 bars. There's more EDGE connectivity in the area than 3G so there you go.

    This is just stupid. You act like this is some scientific solution.

    The reason it works is because there is a lot stronger EDGE signal then there is 3G.

    So when you deathgrip with EDEGE, you may go from -52 to -68 = 5 bars, 5 bars.
    On 3G your signal may be weaker, so you may go from -82 to -94 = 4 bars, 3 bars.

    Try these tests with the actual dB reading instead of the bars, and I guarantee you'll see the results like I just mentioned.
