    Does anyone notice poor WiFi reception on their phone? While sitting on the couch with my fiancee with her iphone 3gs, we both have our wifi connected to the home router which is in the other room on the same floor, and my signal is at 1 bar and her's is full. What's the deal with the phone's wifi antenna? I'm running stock 2.1update1

    this is a noted issue in my galaxy s phones...mine seems to be pretty good, but id say more often than not its worse than other smartphones

    This might just be me, but in the DL30 Froyo leak I swear my signal strength is better than it was prior to the leak. I'm relatively sure the ROM has absolutely NOTHING to do with the WiFi reception, so I have to chalk it up to fluke, but it is something I've noticed.

    mine sucks too. the only way i get full wifi bars is if i stick my phone in front of the router. The table i set my phone on to charge every night is about 6ft away in the same room as the router and it always shows 1 bar.
