    This has said to be an issue but you still have great reception. The bars are misleading on this phone because it doesn't read the amount of reception right but regardless of the bars people have said it still has awesome reception.

    +1 Don't get hung up on how many bars you see. Worry about it if you don't see any.

    Do you think the Incredible has the same quality of reception as the Droid? Tomorrow I will be exchanging my Moto Droid for the Incredible, but I am nervious since the Moto Droid has great call quality and reception.

    to the Droid Forum. To be honest with you I don't have any idea, the phone is very new and reviews are just now coming in. But my feeling is since it's on the Verizon network you should get a good signal.

    Its not just the network, some phones have better internal antennas to recieve the signal...remains to be seen if Incredible has a good internal antenna..this is different from clarity of call,different hardware,basically for reception its the antenna and software that matter...

    poor signal

    I live in a neighborhood that has pretty good verizon coverage but my new Incredible went between 1 bar to zero bars. I had to send the phone back to verizon and cancel the service. There wasn't enough signal for me to even activate the phone. Its a shame, I dumped AT&T because of dropped calls on my iphone. It would be nice to have a smart phone that actually works as a phone.

    well that sux stiltwalker..some reviews warned of this,HTC phones are not known for great reception..i was hoping since this phone breaks so many new hardware levels they'd have boosted the antenna,couldn't cost more than a few cents to do that...i get mine tomarrow,hope i get enough reception..my lg dare gets 2-4 bars from home.

    The bars are not a good linear representation of signal strength . To check the true signal strength get an application like tricorder or go in settings- about phone - status to see the signal level in dB . It's known that many cell phone operators add a couple of extra signal lines on some phones , just so they appear to have better signal .
