    I just noticed if i remove the battery door, i lose all bars and no data. All the antenna films and crap are all on the battery door, so if it doesnt touch then you have no service, i find that very stupid, why would they do that?? makes me feel if i hold the battery door then, i will cause it to lose reception or if my battery door comes loose im not gonna get service. What kinda crap is this?

    Yes I agree, that is one bad design.

    It was likely a way to get better reception. Its an odd design, I agree and makes getting 3rd party batteries and replacement doors a more dicey proposition, but other then that.....not a big deal. I'm not running around with my door off anyhow:blink:

    I'd say it's not an issue at all, not even a little! Why would you want to run without the back cover on? Why would you think it will "accidently" come lose? It won't, I promise you. It's actually kind of an PITA to get off.

    To me it's a no-brainer, why wouldn't you use all that surface area for an antenna?

    ya but you need to consider the fact that the main board should have an onboard antenna, and if anything, the battery door should be used as a antenna booster, not the whole antenna assembly. I mean if you look at it, the slighted scratch or something on the antenna line on the door, would cause you to not get reception anymore, so you would have to go buy a new door. Its not that big a deal but still would be more comfy if the phone had it built in and the outside was just an external booster.

    I was about to make a post about this... but this phone gets the best reception i have ever had! I work right smack in the middle of a hospital and i still get 2 bars of 4g! which is good cause the wifi is slower vs the 2 bars of 4g. Im very impressed with that! :icon_ banana:

    I had NO reception with my dinc2.....nothing...i might as well have turned my phone off!

    it's nothing new to HTC either i know the incredible had that as well as the incredible 2 and I am pretty sure the thunderbolt has the same design.. it's an HTC thing.
    a little odd i agree but to me it's not really an issue

    no the wireless charging battery cover is a totally different battery cover in all. I assumed it might have been that for the rezound but i guess i was wrong as well

    Actually found the battery cover to be slightly loose in the back; i.e. it would make noise when pressed in the back or the left side. Noticed that the battery was slightly loose in it's bay. I folded up a post-it note into a 1 inch square, adding about 4-5 mm of extra depth above the battery. Closed the door, now the cover is rock solid, fit perfect, no noise or looseness or movement.

    The Incredible does not have the antenna in the battery door.. Maybe it should, the reception sucks on it. :)

    I personally don't see what the issue is. The cover is actually the back to the entire phone, not just a battery door. i think it's pretty cool they did it like that because battery doors on other phones come open so easily or just pop off. So you have no door to just fall off, yet you can replace the battery if needed... Unlike the Razr.

    I have the LG revolution and I lose data connection on occasions and if there isn't any loss of data complaints on the rezound that will probably be my next phone.

    FWIW... Page 19 of the user manual

    "The phone's antennas are placed underneath the back cover. To get the best signal for calls, data connection, or GPS navigation, be sure to secure the back cover tightly to the phone."
