    what happens when it rains and lightening strike, any negative effects on the battery or the phone? i don't want lightening to fry my girl (curve). i'm trying it out right now. I don't want to lose my curve so soon.

    Dont "wrap" the battery. Just take like a small rectangle and put it between the battery and the back cover. There are no negative side effects to doing this. No drop in battery life, no increase in cholesterol, no communication with aliens. Sorry.

    I just tried this with a little piece of foil from my Camel Turkish Golds. (The quickest foil I could find.) Within 4 seconds my bars went max. (from 4 bars up to 5).
    Minutes later, bars returned back down to 4. Not sure if I'm a skeptic or a believer. I'll keep it in there for a week and see what happens.

    Maybe next I'll try to build my own UFO landing strip.

    Interesting tip.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~so I sat there for a few minutes cutting out the piece of foil. Lol. But for me there is no difference. I went into my basemtn where I always have one bar. Maybe two. And it remained of one bar I guess I just have bad luck with the foil.

    Tried it but to no avail. Am I supposed to take the stick of gum out first?
