Here's an interesting video showing that the connectivity issues may be in fact HARDWARE related.
To be more precise it appears that the issue is the antennae placement.
Wow... interesting, it's not like HTC to miss something like that. But then there's no telling how much influence Google had over the phone so it may not be on HTC.
I've seen, but can't confirm that the 'chin' on our Droids is there to allow the antenna complete clearance/isolation from other parts of the phone.
You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe
rgrmatt69 on his blog he says:
"How come 3bars of 3G just disappear every time you pick up the phone??? I also had a number of crashes when answering calls. Swiping the green answer button just stopped mid way and the phone hung. Perhaps this is related to temporarily losing network connection when switching to Edge after I pick up the phone. This is infuriating to say the least!"
