    Silver foil trick works on curve too!

    Advertisement



    So when I had my Pearl, one trick to boost reception was to put a rectangle of silver foil between the battery and cover.

    So for S&G's I tried it with my curve. Low and behold my signal shot up a bar above what it was before, some places 2 bars.

    Cant beat the free tricks in life.

    so i put the foil inbetween the battery and the back cover? or do i take off the battery and put it inbetween the battery and the phone itself?

    Has anyone tried this on the 8830? Any potential harm to the phone in doing this or is this a complete win/win?
