    I've searched and never seen this question asked, so I apologize if I've just missed it.

    Is there anywhere on our BBs where if we put our hand(s), it will obstruct or otherwise impede the radio signals, i.e. cell, gps, etc.?

    The internal antenna is right below the keyboard but putting your hand over won't affect the signal that much.

    I believe it may effect it, but not by much, at least not on a BB. Also, I think it's at the bottom as it's the last place you will keep your hands positioned on the device.

    And you are covering the bottom, you are covering the mic hole.

    So is this where *all* of the radio activity is? Phone, GPS, BT, etc.?

    When I'm using my bb with one hand, I use my forefinger on the top of the phone and my pinkie finger on the bottom, with the two middle fingers on the back and thumb for the buttons. Probably not a big deal.

    Also, cradle charger (pod) connects at bottom...could that affect reception/transmission?
