The Telstra Next G reception on the Desire absolutely kicks the arse of the 3 reception on my Nokia everywhere…

…except for in my teaching room at school.

I could generally get at least a weak signal with my Nokia while I was teaching. The signal on the Desire is patchy at best. I was able to use it once on Monday in the room, but subsequent attempts to use it failed do to signal drop out.

I find this really interesting, since others have mentioned that they don’t even lose signal in a lift. But this little demountable room has beaten Telstra’s record of brilliant coverage.

On the other hand, at least there have been no signal drop outs with Telstra and the Desire at home so far like there is with 3 and the Nokia.
