    So you think its a big giant ploy by Apple? In what way would that help them? I hear what everyone is saying but if its so bad then take the phone back. There is people lined up all across the country waiting for this phone despite the known problem so take yours back and let them benefit from your loss. This was a first run and im sure apple will find a resolution some how but worrying about some stupid law firm only delays there fix.If they do win for any stupid reason do you think you will see any money? heck no it will go right into there greedy pockets. I am not trying to offend anyone on this forum by any means. People bash Jobs but yet you buy his product and Im sure 90% of people on this sight own more than one of Apples products.

    .....and I've told them that.
    Oh come on dude.... you've gotta be kidding?

    Why the hatred against lawyers?

    I guess in a couple years you'll hate me too.....

    Apple deserves this for not being proactive about an obvious fault in their product, I mean my 7 year old brother asked if the antenna is on the side wouldn't that mess up reception? I mean Apple, with all its "superb engineers" couldn't figure that simple design flaw out?? Glad I'm gonna get my iPhone replaced today for a working iPhone 4 without this issue.

I'm less concerned about the reception issue as a case seems to make it a moot point then I am about the proximity sensor. I've had my phone switch to speaker, hit keys on the numpad, and even make calls to other people, all while in the middle of a call.
    Razz, thank you. You took the words right out of my mouth. I think the larger issue is the proximity sensor. How many dropped calls that people think is caused by holding the phone wrong could be in fact the proximity sensor? I don't have the reception issue, i'm fortunate, but the proximity sensor is making me RAGE!

    OK. Here is the fix for the reception issue. It will require a little bit of your time and a few bucks. First off, you need to increase your electrolyte level by consuming lots of beer. After you finish the beer, fashion a hat of your own design from aluminum foil. BAM!!! 5 bars!!!

    If you have a reception problem, and it's a deal-breaker, all you have to so is return it for a full refund. Even if, in worst-case scenario, it was a bait & switch, everyone has the right to get your money back and buy a different phone.

    If I buy a coffee-maker, and I don't like how the coffee tastes, I don't need to sue Mr. Coffee, I just get my money back.

    I'm all for lawyers when they're really needed, but this reeks of being conjured by lawyers for lawyers.

    I will support their lawsuit, just on general principle. I really think it's insulting to be told not to hold the phone in the exact same way I held all my previous phones, including an iPhone 3G. They are simply shifting the fault onto the customer. Screw that! Whatever screws them back will get my full support.

    Except we are being told to be patient, they will fix it with a firmware update. Or there is no problem, or just buy a bumper it will fix it. If we are promised a fix and it never occurs then they are liable, that is, if there is a problem. My apple rep thought it was a problem when my phone dropped my call to him when I was telling him about the problem.

    If we are patient too long then we can't return it.

    As I said in another thread, no Judge in the world will side with apple when you can't get a signal when you hold the phone.

    I completely agree with that: if it gets to the point where it's too late to return it.

    I went and played with the iPhone 4 at Apple today and I got to say it's not as pretty in the pictures but that screen OMG, I could not see one pixel on it!

    I put my hand tightly around the iPhone 4 and yeh I saw the bars drop down slowly to no service but it wasn't a big deal for me as I don't hold it soooo tight or with my left handed. I used it normally and it didn't lose signal at all. People are just too moany tbh.
    There's nothing wrong with the iPhone 4, seriously people are causing these problems by forcing it to lose signal then complaining.

    Yup, I agree, all I want is a properly functioning phone. If apple continues to tell me that it is working the way it is supposed to, well that is what they make the courts for.
