    I normally get only one or two bars GSM signal which often drops out due to the N1 hand masking antenna issue.

    However yesterday I looked and to my surprise I had full signal and 3G. I now get a faultless 3G signal (although if I look at signal strength in dbm in the menu it does decrease when my hand is at the base of the phone)

    It's like having a new phone!

    Anyone else?

    Totally!

    I was getting 100Kbps on GSM.

    Now I get 3.1mbps on 3G regularly! Using Speed Test.
