Thread: Say What?! iPhone 4 Loses Reception Bars When Held by the Antenna Band?

  1. #181
    SAY WHAT??? Here comes more blame on AT&T's network when this is clearly a hardware issue. Most patrons just aren't that smart to notice this because it drops signal. I guess this is what makes Apple and AT&T a perfect match!

    Could touching the metal cause microreflections in the signal, and is there a software method of filtering out microreflections which might be turned off? I'm not able to answer that, but I know microreflections can be an issue in docsis signaling (don't know much about cell service layer one issues)

    I agree with this. I've seen this happen before in the early radio cell days.

    doesn't happen to me at all, i've literally tried to hold this thing so many different ways, completely cupped it in my hand, wrapped my fingers around the entire antennae, the left and bottom side only which all still gave me full reception, my wifi didn't even go down
    two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and i'm not sure about the the universe.

    Obviously you do care what others' think, otherwise you wouldn't continue ranting about irrelevant concerns. You need to focus on the problem at hand not about Apple's intentions. I agree this problem occurs in the 3GS as well but not as severe where you completely lose signal and end up in no service.

    My 3gs with Ios4, signal bar drop down to one bar, and than no services, and it did that all day today.

    Ok, I found out why this is happening. If you wrap a condom around the outer edge, the firmware does not recongize the touch sensitive outer band.

    I will focus on whatever I feel like, and if I would like to express my opinion I will do so. I'm sure a mod will advise me if I'm breaking rules by suggesting this may be a nefarious move on apples part to weed out a new exploit.

    " to ""

    Works perfect

    I just put my iphone into a silicon case...no longer getting dropping bars when holding the phone...take it out of the case and bars drop immediately when holding the phone. Is this some type of grounding issue with the aluminum, or does it matter how many silver fillings you have in your mouth ?!?! haha

    I have this same exact problem with my iPhone 3GS.. Is it iOS 4? I don't recall having this issue before.


    I even did some speed tests. While my 3GS is laying flay on my desk I get around 2300 KBS down. If I hold it in my hand, my bars drop and I get around 300 KBS.


    Can anyone else try this with iOS 4 devices other than iPhone 4?

    I just wrapped mine in tin foil. Still doesn't work.
