    My bolt goes from 2 bars to 1 and sometimes 0 when I grasp the lower half of phone. When I make calls people cant hear me clearly even though its showing 1-2 bars. I have confirmed in other forums this does occur on some bolts. Any body have the same issues?

    Hm, I just tried it using the opensignal app (free in android market) and saw a significant drop when holding the bottom, and the bars dropped from 3 to 1. That seems like unfortunate placement of the antennas, one would expect them to be near the top. Maybe there's another explanation...?
