The signal problem to me seems to be with human finger contact because I'm using the iPhone 4 in the little white tray it sits on in the box and only touching the back and hands all over the white tray and no signal or 3G loss.
Edit- I think the bumpers will solve this issue.

Ya happens on mine, but only when I hold the left side and the top two corners at the same time. What the hell were Apple's engineers thinking when they designed this? Did they not once think that by putting your hands or maybe even a case on this thing (perhaps the Apple bumper case?) it would not interfere with the signal? Shouldn't this have been tested and fixed? I mean really, if it was one bar then ok, but mine drops from five bars to two, wtf? Apple better have a fix for this or something.

The good old days of having to stand in front of a TV holding the rabbit ears. Except this situation actually makes it worse.
I kind of figured this would be an issue. You have direct contact to the antenna. I ordered a Bumper the day I preordered so I will not be in this boat.

The problem isn't the antenna being on the outside. Its the placement of the exterior antennas. They should have been on the top and/or bottom, not the sides.

does it on mine on the left side. not too worried though, as long as I have one bar it has been working. Phone worked all day with me holding it in the same area
Launch product = problems are going to happen......kind of like when BMW launched the 745 in 2002...major problems
Overall, its still a nice phone and won't be going anywhere.

I'm 2-for-2 with this issue (my and my wife's phones). Hope the bumpers fix it until there's another solution.

If I put my shirt over my hand and hold the phone in that, so it is contacting the shirt and not my flesh, I don't lose signal. As soon as I remove my shirt and let it touch the flesh the signal drops. Put my shirt over my hand and it goes right back up to full strength.
If it needs to be fixed by bumpers,they better darn well be giving everyone free bumpers.

I had no intention on getting a new i4 and now I am loving my 3GS even more!!"Once is an accident, Twice is a trend, Three times is evidence."

So I guess you have to buy a case with this. Wow spend more money than you already did.
06-23-2010, 08:51 PM #31
Mine drops 2 bars when I do it, interesting...
Hopefully the case I just ordered solves it!
06-23-2010, 08:51 PM #32
EDIT: OMG...and the person posted above me just said hopefull the case they ordered solves it... geeezz

I Don't like those ugly BUMPERS and I don't take them as a FIX APPLE YOU BETTER FIX THIS **** UP
06-23-2010, 08:56 PM #37
The people who says a Bumper Will this are so idiots..
Dudes, Your not suppose to buy a case for your phone to work perfectly.
The reception is supposed to be good anyway you hold you phone.
Its a Major Design Problem and Should be Fixed at the source itself, not by a protective Case.

I am not having that problem. Full bars no matter what I am doing to it.

Will the Wrapsol or SGP Ultra with their side body protection help against this?
I don't like the way the bumpers look except for the black one on the white iphone
