Finally some support has arrived for Apple and Steve Jobs regarding the Antennagate issue. This support however is of a different type than expected. TechCrunch has reported that users of Motorola’s latest flagship smartphone, Droid 2 are facing similar signal reception problems as with iPhone 4. The report also mentions that in their phone testing, Engadget found the signal reception bars to ‘fluctuate endlessly’ raising the suspicion of a possible problem.


The core problem for Droid 2’s signal reception is somewhat different than that of the iPhone 4. The phone does not drop signals when held in a specific way like the iPhone 4. However, users who have reported to face the problem say that the Droid 2 drops signals even when it is idle i.e. not even being held (e.g. lying on a couch etc.). The report describes the problem occurring with the Droid 2 “without holding it wrong”.

Droid 2 follows iPhone 4 into the helm of Antennagate problem. What is to be seen now is how Motorola respond to the issue. Will they take it the Apple way and unload all their weight on the industry or adopt a different approach? Only time will tell. Stay tuned!

    IIf you don't set your phones power management to”performance” it will drop the connectivity to allow for better battery life. I found that out pretty quick.
