    Has anyone noticed a general weakness vs other BB devices? I connect to a wifi network at work (it has a weak signal) and while my 9650 and playbook can connect and maintain a connection, my 9930 just can't connect and hold the signal as easily or consistently.

    Others have mentioned this in another thread. The 99xx doesn't seem to have the range the previous models have.

    Thanks. I saw where someone asked about an issue with a router, but no specific thresd about wifi issues. For a while i assumed that it was just bad reception in my building.

    Comparing with my 9780 and my 9900, I seem to connect much better and farther range with 9900. Maybe it is depending on which OS you are on. I'm on stock OS which is .261.

    There are other search threads on the subject but have you tried to go ahead and install a later OS if there is an official for your carrier? I would also at least at home see if your router needs a firmware update and for that matter maybe even the one at work does.

    I'm using stock verizon, and it works at home on my own network but since i live in a small apt thats not saying much. I also have connection issues at work with my fascinate but i assumed that was a samsung wifi hardware issue. I guess that we can assume that RIM changed the wifi hardware for something thinner and it hasn't worked out as well.

    I noticed the same thing. When I had my 9700, I would always get full bars of wifi. With the 9900, on average I get 2 bars.

    I'm having the same problem, weak signal, dropped calls, cutting in and out. In fact, I'm getting my 3rd 9930 (reburbished) today. Verizon claims it's a bad signal area, but I never had a problem with my Tour.

    Same here... My torch 9800 had no problem holding a good wifi signal in my home office, with the 9900 i have zero bars on wifi if i hold it with my right hand, if i hold it with the left hand i get 2 bars wifi signal. Seems like the antenna is in the right side of the handset.

    That isn't the same issue... Wifi has nothing to do with that.

    Same here, I used to sit at my desk with my Torch 9800 connected to Wifi all day at 3+ bars. My new Bold 9900 doesn't even hold a connection in the same location. It's a shame.
