    Apple knew there was a problem with the iphone 4 when they released it. Did you ever see a bumper for any iphone before the 4?

    Well said, and 100% agreed.

    Why buy a ferrari with issues when u can buy a volkswagon for less money that runs even better, LMAO.

    I see alot of people not understanding that one though.

    I think the software fix is a joke! What Apple is saying doesn't make any sense to me, the software is showing to many bars! Making it show less bars to me would make the signal drop even faster,making the problem worse.

    YES!

    And to those who say they aren't having problems? Good for you!
    I can tell you:
    Chicago, Las Vegas and San Jose - low signal, dropped calls, inability to make calls or internet. My wife's 3G? Running like a tank with NO problems in the same areas.

    A good 20% of the time I now have a very pretty and expensive iPod Touch.

    What about this supposed short between the SIM and where the SIM tray makes contact with the chassis or components?

    yes it has to be att. they know when people are holding their phones wrong.

    i finally was able to make the signal loss happen.
    At home I have an ATT tower in th eline of sight and at work we have a newly installed repeater.

    yep I was sitting in a parking lot with phone on the console 5 bars. picked it up to respond to a text, searching for signal. put it back on the console 5 bars, picked it up searching for signal. Not ATT, maybe my electric personality

    More pressure on Apple means they can't run away from these issues. It's a good situation for those of us who already have an iPhone 4.

    I don't have a problem either. I live in NY. The proximity sensor is very annoying because I will on a call and accidentally mute that call without knowing it. Is there a possible software fix for this or is this another hardware issue?
