Text:

Hi!
 
I have experiensedI'm experiencing huge cellular reception issues after upgrading from iPhone 5 to iPhone 6. All from drop outs in calls, other end cannot hear me, and general very poor reception on places where I had good reception with my iPhone 5 and the same carrier/sim card.

I have tried all the software things:

New
* New sim card

Lock

* Lock
it to 3G

Reset

* Reset
network settings

New
* New sim card

Lock

* Lock
it to 3G

Reset

* Reset
network settings
 
So I may think that there is some problems with the hardware antennas. Does anyone know where the actual cellular antenna(s) is located on the iPhone 6? Is it the one down with the lightning port or is it one on the top? Or maybe both are used as cellular antennas?
 
Thanks for the help!
