The Consumer Response to iPhone 4 Problems? Buy More iPhones!
Generally, when a company's product gets beaten up from virtually every source in almost any direction you turn, there's a good chance that sales would be negatively impacted by such a reality. Well, if you're Apple and your product is the iPhone 4, you're not like the rest of us. In fact, if the results of the latest Changewave survey are correct, the iPhone 4 could do no wrong.
"First the Apple iPhone: We see a huge leap in demand going forward, with 52 per cent of those planning to buy a smartphone intending to purchase an iPhone in the next 90 days -- up from 31 per cent last year."
The Android-powered HTC smartphone category sees 19 percent interest.

This is freaking amazing. I love my iPhone but it really irritates me that in most instances i have to set my phone down, turn it on speaker, and communicate without interference or fear a dropped call. I feel as if I was sold a lemon and there's nothing I can do about it.

i still don't understand this, what is the percentage of "bad" phones? my iphone 4 has been working perfectly since day 1, maybe i'm in a really good coverage area? i've never had a dropped call and i use my phone inside and out... strange

It's like Apple has cast a spell on Iphone 4 so that consumer will still buy the phone no matter what faults the phone are having....heheA positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Apples actions (or inactions, in this case) won't hurt iPhone 4 sales - people are sheep - they want what they want.
It will, however, massively affect sales of iPhone 5. The 'word' is slow to spread, but if they don't fix this NOW, the word will be out about this company and their 'responses'....

Even though there are obvious design flow I think people still hope that Apple will make things right... Their reputation on costumer satisfaction is very up high, but something might just change that, maybe even i4, we will figure this one out soon, the ball is in the field and apple just got a red card....

Well, If you think about it, just the phone part is a bit clumsy everything else is still 100 times better then anything out there.... And phone is just a small part of iPhone phenomenon it's everything else which is driving people nuts.

These survey's are a joke. Let's ask 4028 people what they plan on buying. That isn't even close to 1% of current smartphone.

Honestly, its been a few weeks with the iphone 4 I would sell it because resale value is $800-2000 at least on a couple sites. Since the 3GS seems to be more reliable at the moment(buy that). I would capitalize by reselling now cuz iphone 5 will probably be redesigned an the iphone 4 will not be selling near no $800 with its known issues next year.My 2 cents.
