Not seeing any E71 signal issues

Boy Genius Report is reporting that the E71-2 (NAM) has some signaling issues and that your hand can actually impact the signal strength … I’ve yet to see this on mine and am wondering if this is more of a quality control issue with the builds from certain factories.

I’ve used both the E71-1 and now the -2 and have yet to see anything unusual on any front. I get the same coverage I always get from ATT with the usual and known dead spots (thanks for fixing those ATT). I’m in Toronto at the moment and the signal is strong and the 3.5G coverae is excellent. Calls and data are rocking.

My E71 was made in Finland … pop the battery off and check yours if there’s an issue. I don’t have any other theories here, but am certainly curious about devices with the problem.

    I've had an e71 for the past two months and It is by far the worst phone i have ever had. Issues constantly with signal, am yet to have a conversation on it with it signal problems and cut outs. Other problems include options disapearing only to come back if you turn the phone off. If any one is thinking of getting one I would strongly warn away, It has got that bad that im now making phone calls from a land line.
