I have made several posts seeking help with the weak signal on my 4400B, from my home. A signal weaker than with my other two phones. Everyone has been very helpful, giving me advice and ideas. I have found that, holding the phone in such a position, that the mic is right by my mouth, forces the antenna to hand parallel to my shoulder and the ground, I seem to pick up at least on signal bar, sometimes 2. Since, I started my new technique, I did not have to end a call due to voice breake up or choppiness. Maybe, this is a temporary solution, but it seems to work. I would appreciate it if ofters with signal problems, dropped calls, or break up, would give this a try, and report the results. Oh yes, another thing I do, before I dial, with the antenna parallel to the floor, I find the direction with the strongest signal. In my home, N could be 1 bar E 3 W w and S 4 or 5, a big difference. I also notice that the best position varies during the day.
