There is a difference between a phone dropping a bar or maybe even two and going from five bars to zero bars. That is what the issue is.
Truthfully, I think the antenna is just part of it. In a couple of the other threads there has been talk of issues with the phone's software having issues switching back and forth between towers, or 3g or whatever. I'm hoping that the software issues are just compounding the antenna issue and a patch will minimize the antenna issue.

I think the lawsuit it's just stupid if u don't like the phone the way it is. Return it and buy something else.
I got my iPhone since the 24 and no problems. And if the phone shows up with the a problem apple would repair it or exchange it.

There is something to this issue. I hold my phone, with a case on it, the same way I did my 3G and it will go from 5 bars to 1 bar in 20 seconds. No I haven't dropped a call yet but its my data that suffers. I can't even run speed test and get over 100kbps when its at 1 bar.
So I called AT&T yesterday and they said they were gonna send a wireless engineer out by where I work to test the signal. I got another call at lunch time today and we tried some different things, turn airplane mode on and off, turn off 3G then back on; didn't seem to help. They then suggested to do a restore and do it as a new iPhone and not as a backup of a previous, which I am gonna do tonight. The also unregistered my phone from one of the towers after I turned it off, and that has seemed to help somewhat.Please hit "Thanks!" if I helped you.

I have this case, no issues, and i feel safer knowing phone is protected.
And while i didnt have the case, i really never had issues with reception.
I dont like the fact all of this negative crap-talk is usually stems from some Gizmodo post.
There is really nothing original on the news side anymore. This site is usually the last to post what i just saw in the AM.
Only reason i still come on, is to look over what everyone's thoughts are.

If I hold my phone in a certain way it does lose signal, but it's an unnatural way to hold it so it's never affected me. I'm left handed as well btw

the real problem isn't the phone IMO, it's the users. People so bent on owning an iPhone that they would rather sue than to simply chose a different phone. It's not the only option out there. If you are having problems, there are options to take besides ***** about it and still demand to keep your phone. Exchange it, return it, sell it, but if you won't do anything, then be patient for a fix.Really?

My i4 didn't do this at first but now it is. In it's defense my 3G would also do this but not as bad. It fluctuates all over the place. For the most part it doesn't seem to loose much speed though.

"Ok so Im a little confused. If I hold in my hand with the "Death Grip" witch I dont and it looses signal then how does putting a case over it help? your not going to hold it any different with the case on. is it a magic case?
