    Is there going to be a recall of Droid X phones?

    There should be. This antenna signal-strength issue is a SERIOUS problem.

    The difference is, apple's putting these videos out where people are putting a death grip on the phones, and holding it in the exact way that theyve figured out takes to cause signal loss. You have to *try* to cause signal loss with the other phones.

    From all the other things ive seen, its a LOT easier to kill an iphone's signal (just touching it at the right point, not putting a death grip on it, can kill it), and cause it to drop the call just by touching it in the wrong place. lots more reports of dropped calls on iphones than on the droidx.

    Strong language, NSFW but a funny vid. The guy that made it was fired from his job at Bestbuy. I think i heard he was rehired. Either way it is funny.

    I havent had a single problem with my X. I love it. And I dont hold my phone like that, with that hand either. But Ive had a case on it since day 1. Nice try Apple. Its still a POS.
