I just picked up my OFFICIAL T-Mobile iPhone 5 yesterday and it works like a dream...except for 2 things.


1.  My cell signal strength has dropped off considerably in places where I know I have good signal strength.  I am usually right around 1-2 bars when I know I should have full signal.  Is this a carrier issue or a phone issue or a little bit of both?


2.  When I open up Maps, I can see satellite and hybrid view without issue but when I choose standard, all I see is beige...lots and lots of beige with no street names, buildings or any indication of where I am at.  But when I pull up satellite or hybrid view, everything shows up just fine.


Any ideas??


iPhone 5, Windows 7
