    Complete opposite for me...my Storm and Tour got next to no reception in parts of my house and at work, but my Droid gets at least 3 bars in both locations. I'm definitely pleased with the switch :D

    I have to agree with you, as a phone the droid is the worst I have ever had, the voice reception is just bad. People are forever complaining they can no longer get in contact with me. The plus side is this phone will save me money, I can cut my minutes in half and never go over. I like the pda side of it though just wish they would have put a phone in it too.

    Have you done *228 option 2 where you do most of your calling? That might help. MIGHT. :eek:

    I completely disagree. Had the blackberry storm prior to storm... reception was fine, but call clarity was awful. Reception and clarity are perfect on my droid.
