    legend seems to have very similar problems with the Iphone4, both have the antenna at the bottom and when you hold it there, reception seems to go down.

    But if iphone4's problems can be alleviated with a simple case.. can a case help the legend as well?

    something like this?

    anyone uses a case and find that it helps?

  2. From what I've read, I don't think the Legend should have any reception problems because of its build structure/body material and HTC has taken steps to avoid this as mentioned here: HTC Legend review from TechRadar UK's expert reviews of Mobile phones

    "As reception enthusiasts will know, a metallic unibody design isn't the best for getting mobile signal, which is why HTC has crafted a little slide-out panel to get the battery and SIM card in to the unibody design."

    Having said that, I did notice a few breaks every now and then during voice calls, something I didn't notice on a Samsung touchscreen device I used prior to this one, which was most likely caused by signal reception.

    Hey,
    I had some weak signal in the subway and when I was traveling on highways in the country side - mostly when I was holding it in hand. Since I bought a silicone case (cca. $3 on Ebay) it's all fine.
    Also the case's protection is very handy in rough environments or in slippery hands.

    You should try fiddling with the bottom plastic panel.
    I was having very low reception in good areas and I looked on their website, and they said to make sure the bottom panel is firmly attached. I thought it was, but after taking it off and putting in back on more firmly & carefully, went to 4/5 bars from 1.
    Something about the antennas....
