HTC Titan giving users a Titan-sized headache with antenna problem
users voice sounds muffled on the other end of the connection. HTC is investigating possible resolutions, but does not have an idea when the problem will be resolved. HTC suggested that Sushovan keep on eye on the HTC web site, Facebook site or Twitter for an official announcement when one is ready to be made.
Similar to the left handed death grip problem with the Apple iPhone 4 when it was first launched, a test conducted by WPSauce revealed that when lying on a table, the phone shows 3 bars of service from AT&T. But when the device is held in the hand, the number of bars drops down to 1.
HTC Titan II replaces the original's metal unibody design with one made out of a different material, possibly plastic or aluminum, covered with a soft touch-like material. And while sequel models seem to be released earlier and earlier (Motorola DROID 3, Motorola DROID 4 for example), didn't anyone wonder why the HTC Titan II was announced just 2 months after the original launched?
If you are an HTC Titan owner and have been having problems with the quality of calls on the phone, let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.

Who will hold the Titan in that way as if you are in bed with it. Regular user will still be having their calls as per usual.

It is nice to see HTC finally "fessing up." Who here remembers the video driver issue with the HTC tilt aka Kaiser aka TyTN II. Awww those were the good ol' days...I still have my tilt sitting in a junk drawer somewhere. But hey, back then it had copy and paste and HSDPA (3.5G) and this was back in '08.

I have the same problem with my titan. No one can understand me when I talk to them on my phone. I was pretty pissed when they came out with the titan 2 one month after i bought my titan.

So, yeah, just go with the Lumia then.

I have a similar problem, my HTC Titan shows a signal strength of 1 bar where as my Nokia and Samsung shows 5.
I tried attaching external antenna to test, there is a slight improvement but not significant.
Anyway HTC is smart in selling a dumb phone to customers.
