    Maybe the battery is putting out some sort of magnetic interference that the foil is blocking?

    i tried it and i didnt gain a bar but in my office the internet was really slow and for some reason now it is way smoother even with the same number of bars maybe it is having the placebo effect on my phone

    If it works just like a signal booster, it just reduce the electomagnetic shiels causes by you battery and help signal to reach the internal antenna

    For some reason it only works well when on the outside of the battery. Glad its working for you guys. Ive actually never seen GPRS on my phone, only EDGE all the time. Didnt even know it would switch lol.

    I can't do this. It conflicts with the foil I have wrapped around my head...makes everything fuzzy. I believe you are a govt agent trying to read all our thoughts and hear our phone conversations!

    Now that's comedy -

    Didn't do a thing for me... no noticeable change at all... and I felt weird knowing that was a piece of Juicy Fruit/Double Mint paper in my phone... so I snatched it out.

    Re: Silver foil trick works on curve too!

    I just put a piece in my 8800 and basically wrapped 1/2 under the battery and 1/2 over it....have noticed a slight difference, thanks for the tip...

    Also tried it on my pearl, haven't really noticed much of a difference but that one is usually pretty strong...

    Trying it now....cool tip, thanks! Any particular recommendation on the size? Should it be the size of the battery?

    edit: Whoa....It worked! WOW!

    Well its pretty much the same as before for me. I tried this before with no luck, and it didn't help me. Must be I'm cursed.

    hahaha---sashedelgado--that was a good one maybe if we all wrapped foil on our heads the world would be like a big cell tower and we would all have more bars-lol.

    well, whether this works or not, DO NOT go buy those "signal boosters" you put on your battery...because they ARE a scam. Havn't tried this yet, but I will once I get home from work and let you guys know how it goes!
