Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard about Apple’s flamboyant attempts to drag the entire mobile phone industry into its “antennagate” situation. In the mean time though, company’s have come out swinging, saying that their devices don’t fall into the same shoddy category as Apple’s iPhone 4. Motorola was one of those companies, releasing ad campaigns that did their best to deal the Cupertino-based company a blow to the gut, and show potential customers that their handsets don’t suffer from any kind of “death grip.”
Unfortunately, if the Verizon forums are to be believed, then it looks like the Droid 2 is indeed suffering from some kind of signal issues. People are reporting varying signal in “good signal areas,” and many others are saying they’ve dropped too many calls to count. At this point in time, Motorola hasn’t come forward to respond to the claims, which can hopefully be fixed with a software upgrade sooner than later. Of course, the reports aren’t consistent from every Droid 2 owner out there, but it does seem to be happening all across the country, so we can’t just blame it on one spot.
There’s also no kind of confirmation(s) that will give us, beyond a shadow of a doubt, a clear picture on whether or not it’s the way owners are holding their devices, that’s causing the Droid 2 to lose signal. As of right now, it could just be the device itself, and something to do with the software inside. As soon as we hear more, we’ll pass it along. And, if you’ve got a Droid 2, let us know how you’re experiences are with it.[via MobileCrunch]
