    reception issues

    Wondering if anyone has suggestions. New Droid, all is great, except for the phone reception. Last phone was the Blackberry Curve with terrific, consistent reception. Now people can barely hear me at times, and I break up fairly regularly. Do you think it's a reception issue or a phone issue?

    I am having significant RECEPTION issues.. calls dropped, etc.. The Droid has a poor antenna compared to many other phones.. no doubt..

    I love the device, but this is a problem.. wish there was a fix..

    Wow, you're the only person I've ever heard of with problems like that on Verizon.

    Yeah I have not had any really reception issues either.... as a matter of fact, I get better reception on my Droid then I did on my blackberry tour. And better than my wife's storm.

    Same here, I get better reception on this Droid than I ever did on my Moto Razor2 which I only got 2 bars (maybe) in the room where I work. On the Droid I get four bars in the room where I work now, seems like moto worked in the internal antennae for the better! Two other people on Verizon I work with, they either get 1 bar or 2. One has a original Storm, and the other an LG something or other, it is a smartphone.

    several others are having issues too

    I have read several other posts (while searching on this issue) where people are having reception issues for CALLS on the Droid.

    We have 4 other Verizon phones in our house and every other phone gets decent reception. (one is a Centro, one a Razor, one is a Casio, and some other old phone)..

    The Droid is lacking in the antenna dept .. Same as a Treo I once had.. Weak .. Hey, it can't do EVERYthing well..

    But, I am looking into the network expander,.. costs a bunch, but I WANT to keep this phone.. I like the other features a LOT..

    I have terrible reception with my new Droid...in places where my ex-phone (Dare) did wonderfully. I hope this is a technical problem that will be fixed soon and not my Droid.
