    The reception issue is bad if I hold it a certain way, ok change hand position. What about the fact that it does it when I put it in my pocket? That's annoying, I don't want one of those belt clip pos devices. Such a phenomenal product, but what a crappy oversight.

    What if they put the gap between the two antennas at the center of the bottom or even better at the top of the phone......the hand barely ever touches there?!

    .....was just thinking out loud................

    I think I might have found a solution, and doesn't make your phone look bulky or tacky, what about sticky tape? surely thats not conductive so it should fix the issue, I haven't tried it fully yet but I can't see why it wont work

    The way they responded to the problem sounds very familiar. It's like "don't use flash, it's wrong. Use HTML5".

    the first thing i thought when he said the band is the antenna, was will this cause a reception issue. it doesn't take a rocket scientist to at least formulate that thought and then test it. this and the fact they brought that little bumper out with the release of the phone leads me to believe they knew the deal. instead of owning up to it and giving the bumpers away with the product, they felt it would be in their best interest to be quiet about it. apple has really put themselves in a bad position with this deceit.

    Just try calling your local Customer Service number. Ask to talk to a higher-up rep.

    Those are the kind of people who have no social life and could care less about the phone functionality.

    I don't have apple care, I just called the 1800 number that is preloaded in your iphone contacts.

    I meant to post this...the regular way I hold a phone (any phone for that matter) is with my right hand. My ring finger automatically rests in the the same area that the black 'band' in on on the bottom left side of the phone. There is no way for me to avoid this, it's just a natural way to hold the phone. So it's not just a problem for left handed folks.

    I called my local Apple store and they are sold out of bumpers *surprise*! Do the bumpers really look as big and bulky as they do on youtube vids or are they smaller in person? That is what is making me not so fond of what I've seen online so far.

    My wife has a bumper on hers and I think it looks fine.

    I haven't had this issue at all. I was TRYING to reproduce the problem and couldn't...

    My new problem... girlfriend just ran my iPhone 4 through the wash
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
