I'm not losing signal (yet) but it definitely is dropping 1-2 bars.

Will a case help like it did for the iPhone deathgrip?

edit: fail, somehow i was in the V instead of X forum. but sounds like the same problem for all of them from what I'm reading/experiencing.

mine too. when I put it on the table I got 4-5 bars. but when I pick up the phone to reply a message, my signal drops a.k.a. No Service... ****. it's supposed to be a great budget phone, isn't it? if this death grip is one of their feature, this feature is definately uncool.
if this problem can be fixed, they better fix it soon..

My One V absolutely does not have this problem. Neither did the unit reviewed by gsmarena.com:

We tested the phone for death-grip and we didn't find any problems - Wi-Fi signal drops if you completely cover the top plastic panel on the back, but the reception still remains quite strong. Cell signal didn't budge.

I also have this problem. My One V always drop 2 bar when I pick up the phone. While other mobile with the same network, the signal is full.

I contacted Call center once. He told me it's because of my network operator. I should try other operator but I don't want to change my number.

So, I still hope new firmware will solve this issue.
