I have experienced drop calls eversince I got my hands on the N1. I had a new motherboard put in over a different issue and hoped the dropped calls would cease with this new part, but it hasnt been the case. After searching the internet I noticed I am not the only one with this problem. The issue comes when the phone is held with a tight hand (my right hand) and the hand positioned close to the bottom of the phone (where the antenna is). The signal drops 2/3 bars and goes to no service. I can replicate this time after time. I use the phone for work and it is becoming beyond a joke how many calls I lose. Its not just related to the area either as it happens when I have full 3G coverage or 2G coverage. HTC will pick the phone up tomorrow for 'repair' but I advised them that a repair is not possible as its a design flaw. I have asked for my money back and do not under any circumstances want to be fobbed off with 'repairs' or a replacement handset. Really gutted, I loved my N1 (past tense) Quick question - will all HTC handsets similar to the N1 i.e. Desire, Legend etc have the antenna at the bottom of the phone?
