Buy the bumper for 29.99 at any Apple store and you will be signal loss-free. I did and the problem was solved right away.

"here is your brand new car. It will get you where you need to go, but if you really want it to run good, you will need to purchased the keys from us for $29.99"

So let me pay Apple $30 to fix their mistake. Did anybody ever stop and think that maybe Apple did this intentionally so that they can make millions more in bumper sales profits? I'm starting to get that vibe. Oh they'll fix the problem.....eventually....maybe......but not before countless numbers have already bought a bumper to remedy the issue.

As much as I like Apple, I am pessimistic about a software update fixing the death grip

I wish I had not sold my 3GS! I miss it, I'm getting fed up with this proximity censor.

I put the bumper on it right out of the box. Although, i did test the deathgrip a while later and sure enough... it DID NOT HAPPEN. i couldn't replicate this issue and i was trying.
I haven't had a dropped cal YET and i used to drop them all the time in my office.
I'm not saying that the issue isnt prevalent and needs to be rectified.
Do what an apple employee told me to do. Exchange it. Return it prior to your 30 days (WHICH has always been the policy) and wait for a new batch to come out.
See if that work's and if you still don't like it. Don't keep it.
It's like saying Man i really love this Toyota but those few cars had those defects..it must be all toyotas that do that. No. It's not all of them. (slightly exaggerated but still, you get my point)

I honestly don't see the big deal in this. I have no problems with my i4 at all. No reception problems period! Yes the bars do drop when held a certain way but it does not affect my call it's self. If your to worried about what your bars look like while you on a call then maybe you shouldn't have a phone period. Bottom line, the bars do drop but how many of you have actually had that mess up your call. I don't think I'm the only lucky one either that doesn't have a problem with the bars and call s because I purchased two i4s for myself and my wife and neither one of us have had any problems.

iPhone4. This changes everything. Again. Because we just found another great way to bend you over and suck the money out of your wallet.

Also aside from the "death grip" that's killing my phone, any word of the sensor fix for the in call screen deactivation? I'm getting really freakin' tired of putting people on hold with my FACE!Bcon

I'm happy for all of you who don't have issues showing with the iPhone 4. You are probably in a strong signal area and either don't travel much out of it or seem to spend all your time in these areas. But ...claiming there is no issue with the antenna design on this phone is WRONG!
Apple should have seen this before distributing and selling any to the public. Then when they found the issue (which they have known about since at least one or two days after the launch, and probably some time before) they should have not told their customers they were wrong and the phone had no issues with the antenna!!!
Approximately a 20db loss is unacceptable! Once Apple releases the software update with the "new formula" for displaying bars you will ALL see how much signal is lost holding the iPhone 4. Yes some in the strongest signal areas will still not lose calls, but I'm sure your internet speed will be severely degraded. How about when FaceTime becomes mainstream on the 3G network, how will you hold your phone then?!
My guess is those who are currently claiming to have no issues and how much they love there current iPhone 4 will still be the first in line demanding a new one when Apple releases the iPhone 4B with antenna hardware redesign/fix!

Ever since I taped my SIMM, my reception is consistant. See post re "Possible fix for iPhone 4 reception problems"

But nobody handed me anything, I paid $ and signed a contract for this faulty gadget. Moron! Is just another product in the huge market of electronics. Apple is just a brand I don't give a **** about them, I just want the stuff that I pay for to work reliably.

I think it's funny how ALL my friends with Droids complain about there phone but you never see that on the net !!!!

Wait for the software update for signal bars displaying and you will also see your phone is affected by the antenna issue.
