Well in my daily surfing expedition I found another reason the N90 may not be getting as good of reception as my other devices in case the 850 MHz network isn’t the issue. I found a thread on Howard Forums and then looked through the manual and confirmed that the antenna for the N90 is actually on the bottom of the main device, which also happens to be right where you hold it with your hand. The manual says blocking the antenna may lead to reduced call quality. So what is the recommended way to hold your N90 then?
I’ll have to test this out a bit as I work towards getting my N90 full review up on Geek.com.
