Apple has dropped the ball BIG TIME on this one and needs to fix it. Needing to hold the phone differently is a load of crap.

I'm glad I never bought an iPhone 4 and that I'm sticking with my 3GS right now.
Anytime something new comes out, it's always better to wait so any problems can get ironed out, instead of jumping the gun and chancing the possibility of being stuck with any issues.Please hit the Thanks Button if I've helped you out or if you agree with my post.

Let me guess....... Consumer Reports testers were ALSO holding the phone wrong Mr. Jobs?
Can't skate by on that excuse anymore now can you?

Wowsers! All i can say that i have had no problems whatsoever with this so called deathgrip. Several of my buddies have the iphone 4 and cannot replicate the problem no matter how we hold it.
By the way facetime is the best thing ever!! Got a facetime lapdance by some hot hot chick i met at a bar on saturday night. Hahahaha

I see them getting this update released a little sooner than normal, and hopefully then, dev team releases their work..Extremly Happy Verizon iPhone User...

Keep settling for sub-par products and companies, not just Apple, will keep pushing them out the door and making money on them because people just keep buying them just to be cool or to be the first to have them.
Take off your blinders people. There is a problem.
Funny thing is, all these people who are saying they arent having problems and the iPhone 4 is great, would be some of the first people in line to swap them out if Apple ever offered it because there was a design flaw.

Not to mention the way you hold the phone makes a huge difference. When I hold it by the deathgrip it surely does drop signal to "0 bars" but to hold it that way feels awkward. Hold the middle (sides) of the phone and there is no issue.Don't forget to hit the thanks button if you liked what I said or did

I do not own an iPhone 4, but have messed around with one out of the apple/AT&T store and the signal drops but the persons case caused it to stay steady. But it is a real problem. Though if you are either dumb or like to show off your new gadgets, you'll let your glass-on-front-and-back $200+ phone exposed to everything like dust and sharp corners on tables hahah. Either way, a $5 or so case from eBay or $30 case from apple will be a good investment, unless it's a work supplied phone :P

i hate when you go on the apple site and it says nothing about this stuff. they act like everything is ok. i hate those bastards cause you never know when they have something up their sleeves. They just MIGHT make everything better...but we dont know squat.

I live in boca raton fl and I went into the apple store the other day, I went to every single iPhone 4 on display which is about 30 and 27 of them all went to no signal when I held the phone normally like I do my current 3Gs. I asked an apple employee and he fully denied any "reception issuue" and I got asked to leave the store.
If this were an "area" related problem I know the Miami tower is pushing 3g speed on my 3Gs I don't see why the ifail 4 still has this problem.

By the way, I believe apple iPhones in their store are full bars no matter what because I can't do death grip on any of them hahah. Nor can I master clear though :P

The iphone4 that I ordered works perfect. No signal issues and no proximity issues. It has to be a bad batch of parts. Otherwise everyone would have these issues.

I wonder if they knew about this and this is why field test is gone?

The cookie crumbles.
One thing to realize is that as with previous iPhones, YOUR model may be ok, but THE model still has problems.Screw #Winning, I'm #Juanning

I'm curious if people who recently bought phones recently from the newest production vs the first batch/preorders have the same issue as well. I really wanna jump on this phone but honestly I'm a bit worried. I'm hoping maybe the newere batch may be better?

my phone has the issue and it is a hardware issue. i don't have to use the death grip, if i put one finger on that bottom-left band the reception drops to no signal. i checked out ATT's other phones but they all suck so i got a case and took it like a man.

I say don't hold the phone while on a call keep it in the holster and use the headphones call will never drop. It's not like you would use the death grip for anything else
