    I'm considering the SIII, but unsure of the reception quality. My Captivate's reception isn't that great here at home. I'm hoping the SIII is better.

    Pretty sure you can get the phone, and if you are not happy with the reception you can take the phone back. Do you know the dBm you are getting at your house? No hurt in trying. But based on what I hear from these forums, reception is not an issue as it seemed to be with the Google Nexus on VZW anyway.

    Mine at my house is in the bad range, but it doesn't drop calls or cut out conversations. Probably runs down my battery a little faster though.

    It will probably be the same or worse :) for me it worse upgrading from a sprint htc evo 4g.

    The S3 from the captive does get better signal. And if im correct and you are on AT&T you can always go to the HOX if it doesn't get good signal.
