    Hello

    I own the i9000 about a week now

    I noticed that the wifi reception is very bad compared with my iPhone 3GS(even in my house i have one bar;and i have to stick the phone to the router D-LINK to have full bars)

    I want to know is it "normal" is it an individual problem or all the devices had the same issue ?

    Is it related to hardware or software bug ?
    Can this problem be solved with Froyo ?

    Sorry for my bad english

    I have Firm JM5+lag fix

    Thank you...

    I upgraded from a Galaxy Spica to a Galaxy S, earlier with the Spica I used to get a very good signal from my wirless modem, now in the exact same places, the Galaxy S struggles to get even one bar !! Very Dissapointing given the fact I paid more than twice the price for the Galaxy S compared to the Spica... :mad:

    Same for me, the wifi strength seems weak most of the time.

    I have the Samsung Epic and its WiFi and 3G signals are weak compared to other phones on the same network. Maybe this is a bigger issue then just one of them. Maybe its all 4 phones.

    Same for me. Got one a few days ago, and noticed this morning my 3G had used 10MB, simply because it had 'fallen off' the wifi. Never had this problem before with my previous (Nokia) phones...
