I don't know, but outdoors I get at least 3 bars on 3g which is approximately similar to my smartphone reception. The problem is only indoors.

However, how to make sure that the antenna is not loose?

You will have to remove the back cover, the battery, and the black plastic shield (probably) to check the 3g antenna connection. Its a tiny ball and socket thing on a lead coming in from the band on the non-speaker side. Sometimes it is found to be loose or not well attached. Wiggle it around a bit.
Some times it has been found to be grounding against some metal bit its not supposed to be touching. A bit of nonconducting tape can fix that. Some times the antenna in the band or the wire to it is just bad - can't help you there.
