Got mine a few days ago. I haven't been able to produce a signal problem similar to the iPhone 4...but then again I don't own Apple products so I wouldn't know how to about recreating the issue.

It's been a great phone so far.

Is this going to be antennagate 2.0?
That depends on Motorolla's response. If there is a problem, and they admit it in a press release (and not some self glorifying promotional event), and they don't mention Apple's problems, then NO, there will be no second antennagate.

If, instead, they respond like petulant children, blaming customers and reviewers for holding it wrong, tattle on all their friends because they do it to (with sketchy YouTube videos), and in the end, give away $1 worth of plastic cases that they, mysteriously, never bothered selling BEFORE they released the Droid 2, but that magically correct the problem and initially retailed for $29.99, then yes, this will be every bit as bad.

Somehow though, I don't see Motorolla responding like Apple. They just don't have someone with the same messiah complex that allowed Steve Jobs to pull it off with such conviction in the eyes of the apple fans. Motorolla customers would drop them in a heartbeat.

sounds to me like the inverse of apples "software" issue, their leveling system is probably too sensitive hence the noticable fluxuations in the signal strength. This article doesnt really say anything about people getting zero signal like what happens with the iphone.

You do know Verizon is moving their towers to LTE compatible ones right now. I experienced extremely low signal a week or two ago for a day or two and then it went back to normal. They are probably relying on the minimum amount of towers they can so that they can roll out LTE as quickly as possible.

I had a Droid X that would not work at all with WiFi. Had to take it back. Maybe the Droid 2 has a similar problem.

Motorola will most likely do nothing, say nothing and take the returns like they did with all their defective products in the past (I'm not saying all their products were defective but there was too many to enumerate in the cell phone department alone circa 2004-2008), they are just not the type to show off and draw attention to their failures, even more so that they are just recovering from an "almost bankrupt experience".(remember those phones from 2004-2008?)

I second this, if they aren't showing the calls actually getting interrupted or dropped then it's a simple software issue. People are suspicious after the first "Antennagate" and willing to jump to conclusions. Most of the "signal bars" are made to manipulate consumer opinion of the signal to begin with.
Where's the antenna on the phone actually located, near where the user's hand usually is?

So Apple was right when they stated that all phones suffer this loss of signal issue. Cracks me up the shills that write anti Apple propoganda. Now the faggots get a taste of their own medicines. Lemmings suck.

"They better consult the iPhone 4 engineering department for a proper fix."

Those guys *are* looking for work.

hahahahahahha. I recall these forums dripping with condescension when Apple's issues were at the forefront. Now, it's rather muted here. Hmmm...the hypocrisy of it all.
