    Add me to the list.....first call i made i noticed this....i thought it was the person i was talking too....if you rock it side to side you can see the screen turn off and on.

    On a positive note, i can actually operate the phone with my riding gloves on where i would have to press very firmly on the 3gs and swipe a few times!!!!!!

    My God! Why Did they release iphone 4 if they noticed so many problems?
    Or Worse why didn't they noticed that and all of its problems! i mean Antenna problem display problem and now this? i think apple was too rush and to excited and they released iphone 4 without even completed it! With so many problems i think they must release another iphone or say that this isn't they iphone 4 and make one better! and by saying better i mean without having problems! Fortunately i didn't buy the iphone and sorry for you guys but i think you must go to apple and ask you money back! pay so much money for a faulty phone? (ok...ok...is too beautiful to do that so expect a repair from them or replace) Apple dissapointed me!

    only problem here is the one I havent read on a big news website which is the battery draining faster than my Jailbroke 3Gs. This thing is worse, maybe the same!

    @Panayiotisn: Thats cause we are obsessed ignorant iPhone lovers forcing Apple to release a new phone every year and publish stolen prototypes forcing them to speed up production and release dates in order to minimize losses on previous models.

    To all those people who fueled the Fire, you are at fault, now your burning.
    Congrats

    with all theses malfunctions im wondering if they pushed this out early because of the leak, bc there seems to be a lot of things turning out to not be looking so good, an iPhone cant even make calls? Im glad I waited and are hoping that these don't turn out to be hardware issues

    You probably shouldn't rotate the phone away from your face. It only works if you rotate it on a plane perpendicular to your face, man.

    I'm looking at software issues. Sometimes my screen is really bright at night in low lighting the it will just for no reason dim to almost un seeable. As for the antenna that is a hardware issue but the other stuff software. The i4 hardware is solid but the software is making the i4 look bad. I'm sure our battery issue is to do with software not reading the battery correct. Even thou the battery shows low I'm still getting tons more mileage on a single charge.

    You will have this issue if you dont set up the iphone as a new phone, dont retore it. It happens because of the firmware. I spoke to an apple rep about it. I havent had an issue with anything so far.

    We need to give Apple some hope. Ya you many of you may think it's just a hardware issue but if the software doesn't communicate with the hardware then ya you will have issues. Also when I did my i4 I set it up as a new phone and still having issues. I'm sure it will get fix. I know when pre ordering the i4 it want going to be perfect since it was a some what a new step fior Apple. But anyway I still love the i4. I'm don't regret getting it.

    I've looked for the proximity sensors which I could see clearly on my 3G...but can't on the i4.

    I've also tried calling several times with the phone to my face and the screen doesn't switch off like on my 3G...did they forget to add a proximity sensor on mine???

    My battery on the other hand has been okish so far...haven't had the luxury of checking out the signal dropping issue as my i4's been in a case the nano second it came out of the packaging...

    If there's a real issue, as I suspect there may well be, I expect apple to do the honourable thing and recall and replace ALL these phones!!! They cost enough as it is...

    Have been looking at the pics taken on the phone and I'm wondering if it really looks like 5mp or....

    Hope this s**t is really cleared up quick...I'm beginning to get pissed. Sort this out Jobs!!!
