    I really want to buy the N1, but i am scared due to all the threads I have read about the 3g issues and blocking the anntena in the bottom. Is this still an issue? Does it only apply to early handsets? or is this an ongoing design flaw?

    Please help me out.

    where do you live and how is your service? I can make mine go from 4 bars to 1 if i wrap my hands completely around the bottom of the phone...

    thankfully i don't ever do that but i'm not sure it would matter much anyways. FWIW this phone seems to have a slightly weaker antenna than others i've used, but the vocal quality (coming from the iphone 3g) is fantastic.

    people can actually hear me/understand me now and the noise reduction works and helps alot if you're outdoors.


    i'm on At&t and i live in southern california (redlands area) i don't even look at my bars anymore b/c it doesn't seem to make a difference for me.

    The new n1's are different (different radio or something, but same antennae in the base). I don't have the problem, and my advice would be to go for it.

    I forgot to mention that my reception doesn't bounce around like others have reported it stays solid.

    I'm using the phone with Rogers in Canada - no issues at all. Well, no radio issues. The only minor problem that plagues me is the touchscreen sometimes becomes wacky. I have to press the power button to put the phone to sleep then bring it right out of sleep and it's all good. Kind of annoying but only takes 2 seconds.
