    i325 antenna on a i355...

    Can you put a 325is antenna on a 355? I picked up a 355 as a work phone, but would like the better antenna...

    How similar are the 325 and the 355?

    Yes, you can...this has been covered a lot on the forums if you'll search for it..some report it makes a *HUGE* difference, some says it makes none. Owning both phones, and having them side by side, my 2c is that it helps, but just a teeny tiny bit as compared to the i355 stock antenna fully extended. I use the regular i355 antenna on my 355 and just swap the two sims when I'm in BFE, but the difference is truly negligible. The i325 antenna will get you a few more dB, but nothing to write home about...the signal is a little more stable if you're in a fringe area...but you arent gonna get service where service isn't to be had. www.nexnow.com is a great place to get it (not associated with them, but a long time customer).

    I knew there was threads about it, but I couldn't find them. For some reason, my system and HowardForums search don't get along sometimes.

    That's where I was looking at them, nexnow.com. I need to order a clip for the phone as well, and I checked into the antennas as well...

    I want to use the 355 for a work phone during the week, and then slip my SIM back into my 870 when I want to have a playtoy....
