    I have the T809. My ex has the T319. She will have almost full bars while I have 1 to 2 bars. And we're standing next to each other!!! Does anyone have any problems with weak signal or dropping calls on a T809? This is a new phone. I've only had it a week and my expectations were really great until my problems with the signal. :confused:

    Former NOKIA user. I miss my NOKIA. I could throw my Nokia at my EX and still make a phone call. :p

    Unfortunately Samsungs are not generally regarded as having the best RF. If I were you, I would return the Samsung and get a Nokia. You know from your experience with Nokia how reliable they are when it comes to reception.

    I have to admit, I hate Samsuck with a passion, so I am quite biased towards Nokias and Motorolas...:)

    :mad: Yes, I have the very same drop call problem. :mad: Have had t-809 since March and love everything else about it. I can't get no signal at Walmart stores....etc....and in my own home bearly and then drops. I am wondering if I did get a bad phone & so darn expensive. Maybe it's T-mobile, I don't know. I am wondering if NOKIAS are better too, are they? I would have to down grade though. Otherwise I have to wait till my contract is up, which is in a long time. Any T-Mobile users out there that know of a good cell phone that does work?? Please let me know. TY

    Motorola and Nokia phones are well known for their excellent reception. You can't go wrong with a Moto RAZR, PEBL, or V360.

    On the Nokia side, the 6103 is an excellent phone. It may not have all the bells and whistles of the T809, but you will get rock-solid reception and an easy to use, well-made phone, plus it has Bluetooth (the Nokia 6101 does not). I'm sure the 8801 is great too, but the price is a bit steep.
