    I'm working out at my clubhouse's gym and I'm connected at full strength to my apartment's personal router (next to the clubhouse). I'd be lucky to even get 2 bars with my Surround or Focus. I guess the 900 has a farther reach?

    I've always heard fantastic things about Nokia antenna\radios. I noticed the same thing - in my basement far from my router I get full bars and great speed.

    All plastic uni-body probably blocks a lot less signal than other phone chassis.

    Good point! We can't "hold it wrong".

    I just switched from a Focus S to a 900 and the first thing I noticed was how it pulled my wifi signal at work. Nice to know that others are seeing the same gains.

    Just switched from a 3GS, if I was 10ft out of the house WiFi would lose signal or have 1-2bars.

    Halfway across the parking lot my 900 gets full signal! Nokia has some beastly engineering team.

    Polycarbonate. Its polycarbonate. Plastic sounds, well cheap. The L900 is not cheap. Well it is at $99, but now I am all confused.

    Polycarbonates, known by the trademarked names Lexan, Makrolon, Makroclear and others, are a particular group of thermoplastic polymers. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed. Because of these properties, polycarbonates find many applications. Polycarbonates do not have a unique plastic identification code and are identified as Other
