    ok, let me start out by saying that everything seems to be working fine on my droid. i literally have not had one single problem with it EXCEPT the phone reception. i constantly drop calls. i rarely can make a call indoors. everyone else i know on verizon has full bars when i only have one. also, when i'm inside i get horrible 3g service.

    is this just something that i can't do anything about? or is the OTA update going to address this problem?

    You could always try doing a *228 on the phone and updating the roaming locations. That seemed to help me out when I first got my Droid.

    I too have had horrible reception. Rarely more than one bar; I drop calls all the time. My non-smart Verizon phones have great reception in the same locations.
