    I have a couple of Nokia 8290's. I'm using T-Mobile. One of the phones has horrible reception, almost unusable. I can be sitting somewhere looking at both phones, the good one can have 4 bars or so while the bad one might have one bar if lucky, usually no reception at all.

    I know I could try one of those antenna boosters. But is there a way to adjust the existing antenna to get it back to full product specs. If so please explain in detail. Thanks! I appreciate any HELP![​IMG][​IMG]

    do they botht have the same face plates / battery covers? Sometimes after market face plates/battery covers or batteries them self absorb the RF signal.
