    I don't have an iPhone 4, it ships to my house tomorrow. I'll post my results them but my 3GS is doing the same exact thing. Maybe it's an issue with iOS 4?

    I can't believe some people are so blinded by Apple that they accept the problem saying the bumper will "fix" this. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU! I am terribly pissed that the problem is with all iPhone 4. When you buy a 600$ phone it should work as expected! Even 20$ phones have better reception. Damn you apple couldn't you test it better??? I mean dammit it's a phone and it cannot even make calls properly. I'm so disappointed.
    I'm MYAATT DAAAMOOON!!!
