    Hi my iPhone 3gs 16GB loses it's signal when I connect it to USB>computer/charger
    I have 4.3.3 FW.

    It seems like the usb acts as antenna when I connect it. because the signal goes up when I put the USB's other end to a higher place.

    I am confused. Your reception gets better or worse when plugged in. Your post said both.

    ok sorry for confusing you. what happens is when I connect it to my computer I lose the signal. probably because the other usb end is in the computer. but when I remove it from the computer's port and put the other end in a higher place I get some bars

    Set the phone down on the desk. How many bars do you have? And in the same position when you plug the cable into the phone them computer?

    Have you tried a hard reset? Is this a problem that just started?

    Does it happen when you charge it through wall outlet?
    I would get a new cable.
