    I'm extremely curious about this; since we are a tech site and blog, we tend to magnify things. So, let's try to get to the bottom of this.

    Nope. No matter how many different and increasingly awkward ways I try to hold the phone and cover the left side, I never lose my signal.

    Exact same thing here, I also frequently use both hands (so no righty vs lefty stuff).

    I never see it drop even though I hold it the "wrong way."

    Reception issue is just either a manufacturing fault or a software error,

    I was using an iPhone 4 IN THE AT&T store and the bars started to go down and I was like, "Sweet!" and then I tried to replicate it by cupping it with my hands.
