    I have no issues holding mine that way. If I give it the death grip then it will loose bars but who does that. I do not want hand cramps by the end of the call.

    Ok advise guys, My local Apple store still has plenty Iphone 4's for replacements, Is it worth seeing about having it replaced or not? Basically what are my chances of getting one that does not have this issue?

    Thanks

    Every iPhone 4 has this issue. Do not believe people who say it does not happen on theirs.

    100% true my cousin was thinking his was fine.

    Told him to hold it death grip style for 45 seconds and only 1 bar.

    Case = fix if you can not change the way you hold it? LOL?

    I will need to make my decision soon about the swap,

    What about this video on youtube showing no signal issue on the Iphone 4 when it is covered: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xk8t_AvX9EY]YouTube - iPhone 4 no signal problem UK[/ame]

    Update:
    I went into the apple store today and they downloaded stats from my phone.

    75 calls
    3% dropped
    7 Modem resets

    They said that confirmed my complaints, and that there was a software fix coming.

    I bought a case from the at&t store and it seemed to improve the signal issue. I like the case and will probably use it after they resolve the issue. I still needs to be fixed.

    I only have this problem if I hold it in a specific way. Thankfully, it's not how I hold the phone normally so I didn't even know this was an issue until it popped on the news.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Welp, my friend has this reception "issue". He made a video of it, it's ridiculous when you actually see it.

    well, i believe what Jobs saying is right and the ergonomical way of holding the phone is by using 2 fingers and touching just the top. I cant believe most of you hold it like that, its unnatural.

    Apple have considered the placement of the antennae bridges ergonomically

    It's based off signal strength. My phone does it at home but not at work. I have no explanation for that other than signal strength.

    I have 5 bars at home/work and at home if I hold it in my left hand as described it will 1-no service. At work it won't drop any bars at all. Tripple tested. I 100% cannot get it to reproduce at work. However I can reproduce while drive. I'm wondering if it's a power to the antenna issue. Perhaps it's not adjusting power to the antenna quick enough to adjust for your bodies interferrance.

    Apparently my iphone 4 has decided to not let me send texts.

    You can receive and write them but the send button does not work......
