HD2 Poor Signal

Recommended Posts

Just picked up my HD2 this afternoon and popped my Voda Sim in it. First impressions are that its pretty laggy when scrolling but i can live with that. Major problem is poor signal. In Christchurch in my office we dont have perfect signal but my old Nokia E90 and also other devices (HP Smartphone etc) get 3-4 bars of signal, my HD2 sometimes shows a full signal (mainly when on the desk not being touched) and if picked up will show 1 bar or no signal. Wifi reception is very poor. I'll be interested to see what its like at home, anyone seen similar?

I have the original HD, not the HD2 but i've often noticed the signal going from 3/4 bars to 1 or none when handling the phone, it seems very sensitive to being held. If i am making a call in a low signal area i find the direction i face and how i hold the phone influences the call quality a lot, almost as if my hand/head is really blocking the signal.

Part of it could be that the HD's radio antennas are at the bottom of the phone, unlike most phones where they are at the top.

I've found the HD2 reception to be better than the original HD one, but not as good as my HD with the 1.16 X1 radio..

There is a 1.48 rom coming for the HD2 soon.. with a 2.05 radio

I do have the 2.05 radio , but we I've not been able to get it converted to nbh yet to flash.
