| | Has anyone noticed poor Bluetooth reception on the Bold?

As you can see in my signature, I've gone through a few different BlackBerry units. They have all had excellent Bluetooth reception, even staying connected to my GPS in my truck, parked in a carport, RF traveling through several walls, and even upstairs.
I'm on my second Bold and I can't even stay connected sometimes 5 feet away from my laptop. It has also been an issue with the Bluetooth in my truck. The phone has to pretty much be touching the laptop or near the Bluetooth adapter in the truck.
So my question, has anyone else noticed a difference in Bluetooth reception with the Bold? Does it seem limited to you? I only ask the question because this is my second one with the same results. The only variable, which shouldn't be a variable, is the Seidio case. That shouldn't affect the Bluetooth though, and if it does it's still not a variable in my case because I had the same case on all of the other BlackBerry units.
It will be interesting to hear if others have noticed this.
