Typically, if the antenna port is underneath the battery and you have to drill a hole in your battery door to use it - that isn't going to be the best idea (however, there will be those that chime in that will report it works fine).


I must not be understanding here. If you have to remove the battery to get t the port - how can you use the port with the battery out of the phone?

I assume that you cannot plug in an antenna and still have room to put te battery back in...


ALSO - I went to three different Verizon stores and asked them which phones were equipped with external antenna plugs - and all 3 said they don't make them anymore.

I got the distinct impression that Verizon really does not want people using antenna on the phones.

Has anyone else had any experience with Verizon personnel or tech support folks on the use of external antennas?

I believe Michael meant under the battery door (not physically under the battery). Certain phones actually had the antenna port somewhat hidden and customers had to drill a hole through the back plate to gain access to the port.

Most of the phones you see today are much more compact. I believe that's the reason that you no longer see the options for the antenna ports.

The antenna ports on many devices are there for internal testing only - not a consumer enabled port.

I found the rf port under the small plastic square east of the sim card and north of the battery. Its just a small piece of sticky plastic that pulls off with your fingernail. I understand that the port is usable on this phone for the attachment of cable to antenna.
