antenna problem irritates me, other then that its an AMAZING phone. i planned on keeping the bumper on at all times so im not too irritated, but it does get to me to a certain extent.

This sucks. I've only ever gotten 1 bar at work on my 2G and 3Gs. This 4G gets 1 bar as well, but wouldn't you guess it, the anntenna location is EXACTLY where I put one of my fingers while talking. This leads to an instant dropped call.
Might just have to return this in the 30 days. Or is it 15 days?

Before jumping to conclusions, those of you with a 3GS, like me.and have NOT yet upgraded to ios4 ( I'm still on 3.1.2). Remove any cases you have and do the sane test! My bars certainly drop when held in the left hand so that the bottom corner is nestled and touching the palm. They come back when removing this grip, and they don't disappear when holding glass or in right hand. Remember, THIS IS 3GS ON 3.1.2!!! Just try it!

Just called Apple tech support and im getting a new iphone in 2 days. Mine has an issue that the proximity sensor is f'ed up and when i pull the phone away from my face it doesnt light up with the screen so i cant use facetime, speaker, or pad or use anything else while on a call. Whatever but at least theyre taking care of it

i have not seen that problem on my iphone 4 at all. i wonder if it is really a hardware issue, if so i think i would be having the same problem. I do have a case on mine so maybe thats what is helping mine. Nope, it still works fine with the case off..HMMMMM, dont know

So if 3GS is doing the samething then im guessing this is a iOS 4 issue?

So heres my vid - iPhone 4 -- comments HERE please.
The vid is 3 mins long... its only as it gets about half way through and a change of grip I seem to have an effect.
But I have to say I personally think its negligible and atm im not bothered. If I notice calls dropping etc once Ive used it some more then ill complain
Anyways: heres the vid...
Sorry for the sh*t audio.... there was a fan in the background lol << EDIT:: I used the AudioSwap for some random song picked by youtube!

Well, I live in central NJ. Im in my basement & covers every bit of the edge as I could & no bar change, still 5 bars & 3G. So this is a spotty problem for apple.
