    i haven't really noticed this before, but when i have my phone in my pocket, then i pull it out i notice that i have no signal in either the mobile network or wifi. there is a "x" where the mobile network signal level should be. either i have some crazy pants or this is normal??? :/

    You have some crazy pants. Do you lock it before putting in your crazy pants?

    i think you might be experiencing a form of death grip from your trousers which is obstructing the signal reaching your phone?

    This is something I have noticed a lot when I use my holster. I haven't been able to track down what is the cause but initially thought it was due to the action of sliding the phone into the holster being similar to the sliding of the connections menu at the top of the home screen.

    So you're putting the naked phone in your pocket, not in a pouch or anything?

    Balls of Steel are to blame.........

    Try changing your sim card. Maybe that is old and damaged. Or try another providers card and see if the same situation can be reproduced.

    I was going to ask if the OP has any metal or anything that was surgically implanted.

    And you've tried calling your phone while it's in your pants, and verified that it's not getting a signal?

    Extra starch in your pants? Not sure WTF is going on, but it sure as heck lacks total sense.
