I'm just getting out of the HTC Incredible brand and upgrading to the DX.
Originally I had an iphone, and at my house the reception sucked so bad I couldn't make a phone call without dropping calls. Finally dropped AT&T and went with Verizon since they had better coverage in my area. I started with the original Droid phone by Motorola. The reception was 100% perfect at my house and everywhere else. 3 weeks later the DINC came out, and I had to have it. So I exchanged it and brought home the new Incredible.
Well that turned out to be the absolute dumbest/worst thing I've ever done in regards to buying a cell phone. The DINC doesn't even connect to the verizon network from my house- even though the Droid does, and 3 other friends verizon phones connect 100% signal.
I just wasted 4 months fighting with Verizon to replace the incredible, no luck until they recently gave me another refurbished unit. It still didn't work until I gave up and installed Froyo on it with the newest radio/baseband. Now it partially works from home.
I've been asking around and so far no complaints about the reception with the DX, and Motorola says its the same antenna as the Droid 1.
Last weekend at a party, side by side my DINC vs a DX, the DX had full antenna strength and the DINC had zero bars, and I couldn't even understand my voice mail because the reception sucked so badly. This is with Froyo installed on mine.
So hows the reception on the Droid X?
