    Yah, please do....it appears at least from this angle like it's hanging over.

    Taking a look at my 700p from the same angle though, it would appear that it's not hanging over since if it were, it would have be hanging over the silver area where the IR and SD card are....which it is not doing. Of course, that's not a 700p though...

    You also have to remember that this is the first itteration of the mold. Even if it hangs it will get fixed. I will not ship a product like that.

    Zoti,

    If you get a batch that overhangs like that, just call them the "Beret Edition" antenna.

    We are still working on the design. Please register with the website and we will notify you via email when it is available.

    Anything new to report?

    The final stages are taking more time then expected. We are now working on making sure the plastic cap does not hang over the phone's body (The beret edition :P) and on getting the antenna element to fit it well.

    At first we wanted to design the antenna element so it will be smaller than the original but that compromised reception so we are working on folding it into the antenna instead as this gives the best reception out of all the things we tried.

    Zoti,
    OK, all signed up with the newsletter and have read the entire post. So what I gather from this last post is that the current design impacts reception. Is the impact on reception dramatic or are you tweaking the the design to provide better reception? Will the new design still work on the 700p? I notice at your website (which I have added to my favorites) you make no mention of the 700. Thanks for the feedback.

    theecigarman...check back 10 or 20 posts and you will see mention of Zoti concerning the 700 series. He believes they will fit, but cannot verify until he gets his hands on the antenna. The company making these only have 650's to test on.

    Our Antenna does not harm the reception. You might have read a post from one of the other people who are hand making them.

    We ran a few tests to find the best design for the antenna and out of those chose the best one.

    As for 700. The minute I have the antennas in my hand I'm goign to try it in one and let everyone know how it works.

    I just got the Gray Treo 650 "ZERO" antenna (made by gadgetplus) today, here's a micro-review:

    1) Shipped from Singapore mid-last week, got it today (4 business days later)
    2) Installation took less than 2 minutes (T5 screwdriver was included free)
    3) I tested removing the antenna per gadgetplus instructions) takes few seconds and easy enough, no damage to the case whatsoever)
    4) And MOST IMPORTANT, my initial tests (not scientific by any mean), I CAN'T notice any degradation in reception. I am using the ZLauncher RSSI # indicator to compare and in various sections on my work building the reception is exactly the same (or with very minor differences that can be related to me moving the phone around).

    So just to make sure, I certainly don't see the 20% reduction in reception/signal that was initially mentioned by gadgetplus (and then re-quoted many times by others). It behaves very similar (if not closely the same) to the original antenna's signal levels.

    So far a very happy customer…

    Thanks gadgetplus.

    Now is anyone would only thoughtfully make the sub-zero model in which we could sand down the casing, put the antenna in, paint it over, and have our very own 680 look alikes.... >
    Thanks for all your hard work Zoti, and your meticulousness. I, for one, appreciate that I am waiting just a little longer so that you can make your product as perfect as you can get it.
    Speaking of bending the antenna up so it will fit, has anyone tried a different type of antenna to IMPROVE reception? would that work? I mean, if you are going to do it, is there some way that we could get better reception? I wouldn't have the first clue how, but maybe someone could explain why this idea would work or not? I mean, are the antenna modules in a 700 model the same type as the 650? maybe a few years of r'n'd and that got improved somehow?

    You can always hook it up to an external antenna but with the constrains of having the antenna fit inside a cellphone that is the best you are going to get.

    Looks sweet Zoti. Can't wait for pre-ordering to begin.

    Looks great Zoti. No doubt the quality and fit of your design is worth waiting for.
