    Just came from twitter where HTCPedia had this article about the black, yellow and red insides of new phones. and they said the antenna was located on the back of the battery door and if you had it off you would have no signal haha im just a little amused i guess by that because i dont really understand how this works i mean if it doesnt connect somehow when the door is on and im a little worried the signal might not be the best what if the battery door gets loose or something idk what do you guys think

    I think they test these kinds of things and that this is the best way to pull down the strongest signal.

    Watch out for aftermarket extended batteries then, since they would replace the back with their own.

    So your saying HTC the people who make the phone dont know what there talking about you must didnt read the article or your just really.... nevermind

    During our meeting with HTC at the CTIA 2010, we have learned this information about the antenna on the battery covers of these new devices. In addition, I have examined and found the same antenna on the battery cover of HTC Desire, even though it has a black color design. Which means we might see more and more devices with antenna on the inside of the battery cover.

    Well folks, be careful not to lose your battery cover door, from one of these new HTC devices listed above, otherwise it will leave you helpless, or should we say "disconnected from the world".

    I'm skeptical that the antenna is actually in the battery door. The quoted passage seems (to me) to be saying that the antenna is behind the battery door, and the battery door is plastic (while the rest of the case is aluminum) so as to not block RF to the antenna.

    Unless I see a battery door with contacts that mate to contacts inside the phone, I doubt that's where the antenna actually is. It also seems to me this would be a nightmare from a design/engineering and regulatory (e.g. FCC) approval perspective.

    ROFL.....

    There is no way there is an antenna in the plastic back cover of the Incredible. There are no wires or metal contacts going to it.

    Take the cover off and watch your signal strength stay exactly the same. The part on the plastic back cover people think is the antenna is just part of the mold used in the manufacturing process.



    P.S.
    That comic is funny as hell.

    Was this worth bringing back a post that is older than our phone has been out?

    I didn't bother to read the article since everyone keeps quoting it. I never see the Incredible specifically mentioned...so I have to ask, whats the point of this being in this Forum

    The antenna is NOT in the battery door. I just took mine off and I'm still getting signal. Actually my signal gets about 5dbm BETTER with the battery door off.
