    I am having some trouble getting good if any reception in my house. Other people that come to my apartment with an Iphone average probably a bar or two better service than I get. Anyone know some tips on improving reception?

    You might wanna try to exchange your iPhone in the Apple store. Tell them you are getting terrible service in your apartment while others that come over with iPhones have perfect coverage. Your antenna may be damaged.

    well do you have the same service provider as those other iPhone users? I get great service with tmobile at home with my iPhone but very crappy reception with AT&T. Also compare your reception in the iPhone and another phone

    also, what firmware are you on. I've had much better reception on AT&T once I upgraded to 1.1.4.

    I've noticed OB 1.0.2 gets worse reception than OB 1.1.2's jailbroked / unlocked on 1.1.2

    I'm looking at getting a cell boosted ( cheap $30-40 ) as freinds have and have inproved there house reception by 2-3 bars

    OB (OTB is the correct term) means "Out Of The Box", meaning brand new, with no jailbreak. Try upgrading to 1.1.4. I get much better reception on this firmware.

    He's also talking about getting a cell booster, which is a device you place in your home to boost cell phone signals.

    plug in a USB cord You dont even have to plug the other end into anything. I was away for a few days where its sketchy reception even with the best phones and I plugged the dock cord in and walked around with the phone that way. Went from 0 to 3-5 bars, both phone and wifi.
