After seeing unic0rn's thread and being reminded of the iPhone 4 antenna problem, I'm actually rather curious now how all of you tend to hold your phones?

Some people will hold it very loosely, with only the finger on the sides. I prefer pressing one corner into my palm and keeping one finger around the other corner. I'm paranoid as hell about the phone slipping out of my grip.

I tend to go with a firm grip in style of Serio's. One because I know I'm an uncoordinated fuck with the motor skills of oiled up, frozen sausage and second because of my upbringing in a place where you could get half your possessions snatched in as much as a nanoblink of an eye if you weren't inhumanely alert.

I miss Chile.

I was about to ask what RAL has done to you. It seems "redheaded" can easily be read as "retarded" when you're only skimming.

I get the same feeling when I hold my phone as I get in really high places. So I wrap my fingers around as many edges of the phone as possible, which usually means 3 edges.

As far as holding the phone while talking on it, I hold it in my hand, in front of me, as only the speaker phone mode works. *sigh* An interesting bit of tech knowledge is that there are strict restrictions on the amount of microwave and similar radiation that gets absorbed by your head. As such, the phone antenna is designed such that it will not transmit a signal in the direction of the inside of the phone (the screen side). So if you're having trouble getting a signal, rotating the phone around a bit may help.

it's also easy it seems to miss the part where i've misspelled RAL as RAD.

retarded? RAL? nah. far from it.

you, on the other hand... ;)

I use my left hand, with the thumb on the left side and most or all of my fingers holding the right side.

I don't. Some jackass stole it and I've been without for a couple of weeks. :cort:

Nobody ever called me anyway.
