Bad service and no service

I have had my Driod Incredible 2 for at least 6 months and it is rare when I get more than 3 bars. I get none in my house and have to go outside to make calls. I read that this model is notorius for bad reception. Any suggestions? I love it but need a phone I can actually use.

Anna, are you using the back cover that came with the phone originally?

I have a protective case on it if that is what you mean. All else is the same.

Anna,

There are 2 fixes for this phone. My reception was so bad I did both!! There is the antenna finger fix and the 'ol aluminum foil fix. Below I have copied & pasted my response. I'll even send you the link to the thread. All I can say is "Do It!"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just did the 'spring finger bend' & also the aluminum foil trick (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHIdl1qrdkc)

Well, IT  WORKED WONDERFULLY!!!!

I had an average signal of between -103 to -115 dBm with an asu between 4 to 1.

Now it's at a between -87 to -95 with an asu of 9 to 13!!!!

Folks, you will have a new phone! I've had my Dinc2 for almost 2 years with 3 replacements and NONE of them have had these nunbers!!!

DO IT...............DO IT NOW!!!!!!!!!
