Fluctuating signal strength antenna

I experience a lot of fluctuation in the signal strength of the antenna of the Galaxy S. Without touching the phone, the signal sometimes drops from from 3 to 1 or even from 4 to 0...

Is this a know issue with this phone? My phone has stock firmware.

Edit: when the phone is only on 2G networks, not problems at all..., fully connected, seems to be an 3g problem.

i think there is a big issue with the 3g.. but still i see noone to mention it.

i always use 2g and in that case i have no problem, but if i leave it to auto, the fallback to 2g is not working, you have to check that phone is left without signal and then turn the 2g only ON.

i just tried to leave 3g on and try to make some calls, in areas that 3g signal is good, and i always get error that video call not possible.

tested with factory rom and g5 one.

Nope I have this problem too. I thought the newer firmwares were meant to fix this, but they didn't. I get 3g signal problems, Most areas it is difficult to grab it, making google maps next to useless. In addition I have also had big problems with wifi signal.

Might be helpful if you guys mentioned where you are.

I notice that on 3G my signal bars fluctuate, but even with zero bars displayed, I never miss a call, and the bars always come back when I make a call or start using data.

This is in Los Angeles, AT&T...which is probably the problem, even iPhone owners hate AT&T, thought they're probably the cause of AT&T service issues. LOL

Confirmed for Germany --- E.Plus ----

fluctuate from 3 to 0 bars..... but no loss of signal

(except due to real signal loss :huh: -- but then fallback to 2g is OK ) XXJP3
