    At the office here I was averaging about 30-35% signal loss on my D1 which kept me in 3G.

    Switching to this new TB "thing" Im getting averages of 91-99% LOSS :icon_evil:

    Is it just me or is this TB antenna just junk? Ive even forced it into 3g mode and still get the same results. I can literally kill a fully charged stock batt here at the office in less than 4hrs.. like .... are you f'n kidding?

    Unplugged 1hr 27mins.. down to 70% now.. 93% loss..
    This thing is sitting in the same spot, probably to the damn mm, as my D1.

    Yeah, the antenna is seriously fail in this, same with the samsung galaxy i tried before this. My D1 and DX could pull a 3g signal most of the time in my office, but not the TB. I'm looking to get a cell antenna in my cubicle lol. Sad i will have to have my phone plugged into something just to get a signal.

    Everywhere else it gets worse signal than my moto's did as well, but the office is pretty much unusable 75% of the time.

    I literally just sat back down at my desk from taking back the TB.
