    I have found the same. And one can verify also that if the whip is in
    the middle position (neither fully up nor down) the sig strength
    suffers a few dB.

    Note that the whip probably only helps for the 850 band signals, where
    it makes the phone ~1/2 wave long. For the 1850 band, the collapsed
    antenna is already ~1/2 wave long.

    By the way, what's under the sticker beneathe the batterywhich says
    "do not remove this sticker"??
