    Make certain you're not covering the phones antenna while in call. If that's not the problem it may be the version of software on the phone.

    I't's antenna is located on the bottom of the phone, don't ask me why but this seems to be the trend for antenna placement in high end phones. The bottom of the phone is most likely to be covered by the hand and face while in call, so hold it by it's sides (make sure you have a firm grip the damn thing is slippery!)

    I could be mistaken, but I believe that the reason they (most phones these days) put the antenna at the bottom is that it is the farthest from your brain (think safety). It is a radio transmitter after all.
