My 3G penalises me (and that's not meant to be a reference to the above few posts) for being left-handed. I notice that when the local signal is weak, I often get less bars holding my phone in my left hand than I do holding it in my right. So I'm getting accustomed to using my earbuds with the mic for making calls where the signal's low, so I can hold the phone in either hand.
I was in the heart of rural Norfolk last week, which is as flat as an airstrip, and found a place where I got full signal if I was standing to the east of an oak tree, and lost 2 bars standing the other side of it. Wiccans, discuss...

Since if you hold the phone with your left hand, that would mean that the antenna is in your palm, the thick side of your hand, right hand would mean the finger side so yes better reception. Something Apple needs to work on, maybe throw more power to that antenna?
If you use your left hand use the western grip. Problem solved and ______________________!
Fill in the blank.
FYI: it is water, no glow that makes the difference. Water, the oxygen and two hydrogens is the best barrier for cell phone and wifi signals. Rain, Trees that are wet attenuate the signal but your big fat wet hand full of water so close to the weak signal end of the transfer does most of the damage.
Due to this problem, we can't recommend the iPhone 4.
Our findings call into question the recent claim by Apple that the iPhone 4's signal-strength issues were largely an optical illusion caused by faulty software that "mistakenly displays 2 more bars than it should for a given signal strength."
