    Hey guys. So I've seen so many articles and discussions about the "death grip" on Iphone 4's but not a single one on the Bold 9900. I've searched for others having this problem like me and I am alienated to know that there is no thread started concerning this. There's no problem with how strong the radios on my 9900 are, the only thing is that, whenever I put it in my hand the mobile network signal drops to nothing. I've tried just placing it on my palm (with only the battery cover in contact) and it drops. Also tried just touching the sides, it drops.
    It really sucks. What can I do with a phone having 4 bars of network signal without touching it? Please tell me I'm not the only one !

    Maybe wear a tin foil hat??

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Have a look at this thread:

    I'm not an electronics expert but have a look at the antenna assembly to make sure it's seated properly and not shorted or disconnected. Pics here:

    Will that work?
    Yea I've seen that but the thing is that the signal strength is okay and it only drops when it comes in contact with my body. Any other suggestions besides wearing a tin foil hat? Would a case make an improvement?
