I bought my Treo the day they arrived at the Sprint store and noticed that most of the time the reception is good, but at some places where my Kyocera used to work, the Treo says 'no service'.

Then, I tried a friend's Treo 300 that was purchased a few weeks later at a retailer. It seems to always have service, and usually about one bar higher than my Treo.

The flip on that phone also has a little less wobble than mine. Any idea why there are these differences? Thanks for your feedback.
