    10:23AM "Pretty interesting... one more data point. AT&T has given us the early call drop information just a few days ago. They log call drops, it helps them improve their network. So we can't give out the absolute call drop data... AT&T can't release those numbers to their competitors, but we're going to give you the delta."

    Apple released ios 4.0.1 yetterday. That didn't fix the problem. Every other phone hidden their antenna for a reason. Apple took a bold move. Too bad it didn't work

    "So the heart of the problem is, smartphones have issues, and we made it easy to exploit the issue by showing people where to hold the phone to cover the antenna"

    HAHAHA...we pointed out the issue...so it's all good! done and done.

    its a fix and if you don't like it return it! STOP COMPLAINING... If they recalled it people would be like... WHAT I HAVE TO WAIT? geezzzz people... What if Apple sold the phone with the bumper already on it? And you took it off?

    Really getting tired of all the cry babies... RETURN IT!!!!

    Now we can move forward and get the JB... That is the real issue!!!

    Might I ad 4.1 seems to run a bit faster than 4.0 not sure about 4.0.1 because I am using the beta 4.1

    3rd party cases as well...now I'm not sure which they will include but I hope they're some good ones. Bumpers are useless for me:

    Apple-only headphones (very small hole for the cable)
    No 3rd party USB cables
    Silent button hard to reach

    No ****. If you don't like it return it. No one is forcing anyone to keep it. If you choose to keep then you have no reason to *****. Anything else you buy if it has an issue or you don't like you return it. Why should this be any different. I think some people just like to complain no matter what.

    I for one don't have any reception issues at all and in fact have only dropped one call since I've got the phone on release day and literally dropped at least one call a day with my 3G.

    If people are going to update their software then I urge them to lay their iPhone on the desk while connected to their computer and don't move the phone at all while updating and see if the signal has more bars after the update.

    To those saying the devteam should wait until this firmware is released.

    That logic is stupid. However I respect the devteam's decision to wait for 4.0.1 since it was being released soon, which it has. The devteam waited for 4.0.1 for no new updates If they wait for 4.1, it's going to keep continuing, why not wait for 4.2 and 5.0 etc.It's just dumb. Let the devteam release the jailbreak and unlock and they will help work on p0sixninja''s boot exploit or either find a new exploit.

    That's what I liked about geohot. Last year when the 3GS came out the dev team kept holding the jailbreak like they are doing now and geohot publicly said to them that's not how the cat and mouse game goes and he then released blackra1n and blacksn0w. Everyone praised him. The same guy who stood up for the community, those people chased him away. We lost our best hacker. I hope he returns soon or maybe save the day.

    If you actually read the article, you would know it isn't a hardware short, it's a "complex interaction between specialized communications software and the antenna."
