Respectfully I would say to ignore the reports about the antenna. They are way overblown. I am finding that I have STRONGER reception and MUCH better call quality on my iPhone than I did on on my BB Pearl (and my HTC Incredible, which has poor RF and I would say BAD sound quality). I have not dropped a call yet. I also use one of those little rubber "condoms" (as I call them, hehe) that protect it from nicks, etc.

I'm not sure what the fuss is all about. VZW's network is strong and I'm betting that the antenna issue became worse because AT&T's network has problems in some areas (SF, NYC, etc.). Another consideration is that I have not heard of European cell phone carriers - all GSM-based - having antenna issues, presumably because their networks are stronger than AT&T's.
