    Wifi strength

    When i use my internet over wifi and suppose its connected by 2 bars and if i put my hand behind the phone at the upper half the signal strength gets weak to 1 bar or just the dot. Is this issue with every GS2 or my phone's wifi is faulty. Please help.

    Are you using a microwave or any device nearby that has a 2.5 Ghz frequency?

    Two bars isn't a very good signal indicator. Try this:

    I
    t'll tell you what your actual signal strength is, and if anyone nearby is broadcasting on the same channel that your router is on. This will allow you to get a better idea of what's going on, and if you're broadcasting on the same channel as anyone else nearby you should change channels on your router. Also, the antenna is on the back of the phone, so putting your hand in certain locations on the back of the phone will interfere with the signal.

    Can I just throw in (yeah me again. Sorry) that I can make my wi-fi signal go from -40dbm to -80 if I put my hand in the right place on my phone.

    Gotta love the radio-wave absorption of human flesh.

    Not surprisingly, this happens with every device. Hands WILL attenuate radio signal as they 'cover' transceivers, end of story. Play with that Farproc WiFi app using it's meter, and see how and where your 'holding' affects your signal, and try to find workarounds that don't actually impede functionality.
