The dancing bars is really starting to piss me off.

    I don't know if it's a hardware issue or a software issue but I'm really tired of looking at my phone and seeing 5 bars, and then picking it up and seeing 2, having it go back to 4 and as I put it down, go back to 5.

    Any insight to if this is a software or hardware problem?

    Idk if this is a coincidence or something but ever since I picked up the Body Glove case ( I picked it up the 3rd day I had it) my reception has been steadier and more consistent in a good way. I honestly don't know how these relate but my brother who is a real tech guy says cases often raise reception

    the metal plate on the back of the captivate is somehow interfearing with the reception/bars. i dont know how or why. but if you put your phone down somewhere it will have good signal, then you pick it up and touch the back or put the phone flat on the palm of your hand you start to loose bars. :(

    Yup, that's the exact same problem I'm having.

    I suppose they're going to tell us we're holding it wrong?

    I've noticed the same thing, glad it's not just me.

    I have the same issue, but it hasn't dropped calls on me.

    I believe its a software issue because people are not reporting dropped call issues or data issues just it keeps going up or down i could be buggin though.
