    Does anyone else notice that they lose service when the hold the bottom sides or bottom of the phone?
    (as of now)When i hold my phone from the top sides of my phone i have 3 bars, but when I hold the bottom sides or bottom of the phone, it drops to 0 bars instantly. I didn't see any vibrant forums for this problem yet so am I the only one?

    Ive had no bars showing and ive still been able to make and recieve calls. My signal seems to fluctuate quite a bit but it hasnt made a difference making calls.

    No big deal. Especially if you avoid the "death grip."

    i noticed this the first day i got my vibrant about over a month ago......I called tmobile about it and even the representative said he has it too, but honestly i've never dropped a call, my speedtest says its over 2mbps so i honestly dont care much for it, i just get OCD about not having the phone displaying any bars though..

    It seems my bars are always going up and down but I don't find the reading of the bars to be actuate because I still seem to be able to text and make calls np even when I have no bars

    The Vibrant continues to impress. Yesterday, my wife and I drove through an area where we always (100% drop rate) used to drop calls. This has been true for the last 7 years with Tmo. Before entering the "drop zone" I placed a call and we stayed connected the entire way. :D
