    Backflip "Deathgrip"?

    I was just messing around with my Backflip, seeing if I could find any "deathgrips." The only grip I got to work was thumb on the bottom of the phone (right half, below "back" button) and forefinger on the top (right half, near headphone port).

    It consistently (see: always) took my 4 bar 3G connection to 2, although it took 5-7 seconds to lose the first bar and 10-15 more for the second. It also took about the same amount of time to regain those.

    I was stationary the whole time, so I'm sure it's the grip, but I don't know why anyone would ever hold the phone that way, and I didn't completely lose the signal.

    Sorry if I worried anyone, it's just a slow day on the job, and I found it interesting. :D Maybe someone can find a better one.

    I tried it again while in the Status screen, and it was dipping from -91 dBm to -107 dBm. I'm not sure how significant that is, but it took me down 2 bars.

    Also, 11 asu to 3 asu, whatever that means.

    You would have to hold your phone in a very awkward and uncomfortable manner to get this deathgrip. While AT&T, you just have to hold your phone like a left handed user.

    Yeah you're right.
