    Default Does 3GS have better reception than Original 2G iPhone?

    Hi folks,

    I was wondering if reception has improved in latest 3GS iPhones or is it the same/worse as in iPhone 2G? Pls share your experience, especially (but not limited to) if you moved from older iPhone to 3GS.

    The 3GS and 3G have the same baseband chip == no difference in reception, unless they improved the antenna in the 3GS I guess. Anyway, I went from 2G to 3GS recently and have noticed a slight improvement in reception, probably mostly due to it now being able to receive a 3G signal.

    The change from metal to plastic back case of the iPhone has helped improve reception a bit. The other big change was that the antennas for the non phone components (wifi, bluetooth, gps) have been moved to the top of the case in the 3G. This spatial separation reduces interference and should improve wifi performance.
