Edit: Here it is from Engadget...
10:53AM Q: On the September 30th date, is that to let people know that you'll have to buy a case?
Steve: Not really, we'll reevaluate then. Maybe we'll have a better idea. Maybe Eminem will come out with a band-aid that goes over the corner and everyone will want that.

Wow, you brain-dead crApple disciples never cease to blow my mind... You tards really think this "fix" is acceptable??
I'm a Ferrari "fan-boy", but if my new 458 Italia comes with a hole in the engine block, NO WAY am I gonna accept a free blob of silicone or duct tape over the hole as a "fix"!! Would YOU!?!?!
You fools can hate and flame on me all you want for this comment, but at least I am capable of deductive reasoning and individual thought!
All I can do now is PRAY that the backlash to crApple from the media and people with a brain, finally buries them and brings that arrogant fuktard Steve Jobs to his knees!Praise the Devs! To each and every one of you who spend your time writing code and making apps for little or no profit... Its YOU that makes the iPhone great, NOT Apple!! From me to you, a million thanks!!

Basically, they're saying what they have been all along. Its not a problem strictly for an iPhone. All cellphones (especially on AT&T) will have dropped calls. You can either bring the phone back or get a case, either way you're not going to be out any money because they are waiving the restocking fee.
All in all, its an acceptance that the phone is less than perfect and Apple is offering a remedy for those parties that feel violated or wronged by getting something "less than advertised."
Thing is, the iPhone is still the phone of choice for many because of the sheer number of peripherals available and content access, as well as the overall design. You can get an HTC phone thats close, but far less responsive than an iPhone for touch, or a Droid that has a fraction of apps available, or any number of other phones that don't have the connectivity of an Apple device.
You think Motorola or HTC would offer a full refund of the phone with no restocking fee and contract cancel?
I'm still using my old 3GS because I wanted to see what Apple said about the phone today, and to be honest, I may consider upgrading now that Apple's come out and said what it did. I was more concerned with the proximity sensor than the death grip because Orlando has pretty good AT&T reception in the downtown area and a drop of 24 dBm where I live won't drop me past -113 dBm for a call drop.

Why complain in the first place ?,an iphone with a fault is better than 10 other phones of any other manufacturer !
I see so many different phones every day with typically pathetic faults that really should never happen,these being from companies who have been producing handsets far longer than apple have.
Even with this issue the build quality of the iphone whatever model and the excellent fast repair/replacement program puts all other manufacturers to shame.
Im still using a 3gs and nothings gonna stop me from upgrading soon.

Free Bumper or Case. Get on the site early to get your bumper because the cases they are going to provide are probably gonna be crap!

This is quite the change of tone from "magical" device.

I'm truly amazed at the feedback on here. For those who use a case I understand but those who were sold on the sleek design.. thoughts?
It's like buying a new corvette at the dealership and them saying "Don't drive it that fast or you will need to put a bra on the front bumper"Don't forget to hit the thanks button if you liked what I said or did

Looks it is not my day. For me, this is no way to put a bumper on her. I love her naked because she is sexy that way. She has to go home now.

Just spoke to an apple rep and he checked with his superviosr because he did not get to hear the press conference. He told me that starting next week on the apple site you can select a bumper or any other case that they have listed for the fix and have it sent. Since I have two iPhones he told me I would probably have to do two separate orders for two cases so you can either get a bumper it's self or any other case they have up that you would like. I'm sure it has to be in the same price range but we will have to wait till next week to find out.
