Really? Why would you say that? First of all, it's not Android's fault if the signal is weak, it's the manufacturer of the Android device for either putting a faulty antenna in that should be at fault. Secondly, With all the iPhone users complaining abut dropped calls, and the infamous antenna-gate, you shouldn't be talking. I'm just assuming you're an iPhone user, pardon me if you use WP or Symbian or any other OS. But my first statement still stands.
