    You and a whole buch of DROID users......... we will all be enjoying this one! The hits just keep comming with the iPhone. So glad that I can just sit back and watch with my HTC DROID, instead of wonder when they will make up some un-kept promise to fix, or until they can try to sell another bad apple.

    OMG OMG Fix it now! The PST/PDT is confusing the hell out of me and I might miss the press conference!

    Honestly... let it go... concern yourself with things other than syntax.

    "I want the iPhone 4s. HTC Evo? What is that? Is that an iPhone? The iPhone 4 has the three-gee and the Wifis. I want the one with the more gee-bees!"

    I love my iPhone 4, but this is the first time I'm actually ashamed to own an iPhone. I do have the death grip issue, but I got decent reception in most areas so it only goes down to 2 bars, with a case.

    My town (Merced) is getting the 4G network, so the HTC Evo is looking more enticing. This wouldn't have been so if this PR fiasco wasn't so bad...

    This is a sad time for me as an Apple fan... I really hope for something good in the press conference.

    I would not order the iPhone until you hear what Steve has to say tomorrow. Chances are more likely for a price reduction versus a recall.

    Bumpers will not solve issues for anyone that is interested in the aesthetics of the iPhone. Personally i was sold on the "Sleek" design not one with bumpers.

    **** I hope they do not ask for the iPhone 4 back unless say the fix is replacing the faulty iphones and research says all, so I do not want to wait over 3 weeks for a replacement,

    3 week wait is the average rate to get another iPhone, I know I have a 32GB on order since the 12, have my 16gb but I want more space.
    Have to wait 3 weeks they said, also paid in full. (ATT.com = have to pay)

    Tomorrow is a big day for everyone personally involved in this, I hope Apple does the right thing, obviously consumer reports has made them look bad.

    Steve needs to sell Apple products and tomorrow will be 100% focused on making the market better for the company as a whole image wise as least.

    I hope they do not screw us over, I mean honestly I use my iphone with a case and it is ok, but not everyone should be forced to do this.

    Sorry for the super long post.

    Your pointing at the wrong person down there........

    Even if they did request your old phone back for a recall, they would not ask for your iDevice until the new ones are available as that would be asinine. Don't worry, Apple is not stupid they are much more concerned with the way people look at the Apple Brand, not the iPhone 4.

    The press conference is just damage control now, it is a little too late to keep stock from going down.
    Consider the price drop on Apple's stock, stockholders is nervous now. No matter what Apple do on Friday the stock will continue to drop, if Apple try to make this good it will cost Apple money = less profit = stockholder do not like. Apple keep ignoring problem stockholder think Apple is going down keep selling Apple stocks.
    I am now wondering if Jobs is trying to do a Hue Heffner (sp? Playboy's CEO), buying stocks back to make Apple privately owned company. This would be great way to do it if he has the funds.

    this is really too bad. The i4, by all accounts should be the be all, end all cellular device. Did stevie j think that the cosmetics of this device would make people overlook things like not keepiing reception? As much as i dislike stevie j, I'm really hoping he does right by the people on friday and offers some kind of solution for all the issues. I think a recall is out of the question (ATT would have to have been notified by now), but free bumbers, full refunds/replacements, and an apology for releasing a product that was faulty from the gate would go a long way towards quelling the growing customer unrest....

    the evo/incredible/aria is a very cool phone, its just that all the best apps are still only in the iphone app store. But being able to get a refund for an app that sucks (andriod market) is very cool...

    Free Bumpers Really? What's with people who are ok with that? I did not pay $299.00 for a case that forces to put a bumper on it. Not trying to be a pain in the *** but that will definitely feel like a bait n switch.. esp knowing now that Steve Jobs knew about the faulty antenna in the 2009 design phase.
