    Favorite Signal Positions

    Just wondering if anyone out there does any weird things with their handhelds, body, or surroundings to get the maximum signal when surfing on your BB?

    It may be an exercise in futility, but sometimes I cup my hands around the back of my BB 8320 like a little satellite dish and it makes the internet seem to go faster.



    You?

    Since the antenna is on the bottom of most Blackberries, I tend to flip it upside down when I'm having problems catching a signal. Usually works....

    never knew that. I move my phone around my desk at work, it seems like work and walmart are the only 2 places i have problems with signal everywhere else im great. the walmart by my house must be a dungeon nobody can get signal there. my job, well at my desk in particular gsm seems to work great but when I walk away from my desk my berry is back to 100% (ROAMING on vz network but its free so I dont care, btw I work for vz so I figure they would have great svc in their own building)

    lol, too funny. i get pretty good signal when im at home, which is a lot of the time, so i don't usually have to do anything but my cousin who lives in the big island (hawaii), in a valley tells me whenever she wants to use her phone she has to go into her bathroom, step on a stool, and hang halfway out the window. can you imagine her doing this for 2-3 hours whenever she calls me.....?

    That's pretty cool. I didn't know that. I just tend to walk around and pray.

    One more note on the subject, I have noticed that when I do enterprise activations at my job, if I rest the BB on my phone wire (the one from the handset to the base) it seems to increase the speed of the activations. Maybe its just my imagination, but it seems to work.

    Tell her she might as well go ahead put a beach chair on the roof. Or the other option is bluetooth headset or speakerphone and bbcradle stapled to the ceiling.

    Since I got a 8120 with UMA, my days as a BlackBerry contortionist have ended! I get a full signal using my WiFi connection! :-)
