I actually notice that my eeis gets even bettee signal then my old treo (which was also on verizon). I work in a hospital which is notorious for having endless cellular black holes (which asside from being a big pain also drains phone batteries something fierce). Since geting my eris i have yet to find a black hole in the hospital. I was comparing with a friend (also on vzw) and i had 4 bars where he had no signal on his clamshell phone. So i give cudos to the eris antenna.
