    11:13AM To be clear, Jobs was not happy with our question. "You guys talk to each other a lot."
    11:12AM We asked if there was possibility of a software fix... based on the NYT article stating an inside source claimed there could be a fix of that type coming.
    Steve had a long answer largely dismissing the question. Then Scott Forstall asked for a mic, and he said that the statement in the Times was "patently false."

    Talk about lame. Free bumper. Just as I thought. I think Apple might have dug themselves a grave. No real answers for a fix for the death grip problem, just a free bumper. Wow!

    You also have the option to return it for a full refund. So if you're nay happy, STOP USING IT because I sincerely doubt there's someone with a gun on your back forcing you to stick with it.

    It's a free market and where you take your business speaks louder than words. Apple just provided you with the fastest easiest fix available or a way out. Neither of these options cost anything to you.

    hey i don't have an iphone 4 as yet,but was sure thinking about buying one.. but i have some questions about this, what is a bumper? so far from reading these posts i'm figuring its a case,but i'm not 100% sure,but if it is,well this sucks,that means if i get an iphone4 i'll need to get a case for it.Whats the use of making such a great phone with a new and so called great design and not be able to show it off, you have to wrap it up,it think apple really needs to do something about this...I want the freedom to use a case or not on my phone. It may sound weird to some of you, but some people change their cases,using different colors and different designs or use no case at all depending on how they feel on a particular day..people like me,who uses their phone alot,i still have an iphone 3gs i think apple is the best but they should really do something about this.

    Jobs and others keep saying it only affects a small number. I am sure it affects more.
    Regardless if you are address like me it's an issue. Please don't downplay it as it's only a few. Even at .55% (that have complained) of 3 million that's a good amount of people.
    Apple store very politely told mento have a nice day and enjoy the phone. Maybe now I can join the rest of the rank and filewhen I get a replacement.

    Well Steve said that they put the separators on the band as a visual aide to show you where not to touch the phone. So he is going with "don't hold it that way" or "get a free bumper case." So either use it the way Steve wants you to or cover (the beautiful Apple design) with a case that Steve (grudgingly) will hand out for free.

    I understand where your coming from but you said it yourself "Fastest, Easiest Fix". This is not why I purchase Apple products. Your right in essence no one is forcing you to keep the phone, but when Apple sells a product on sleek design and aesthetics as part of their keynote I expect to get what I pay for as a loyal customer!

    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!
    THen return it!!! Does someone have a gun to your head to keep it? If you have individual thought than take that thought and buy a Nokia or equivalent that has stamps on it that say "don't touch here". Stop your crying and go return it. You are not happy so be the individual thinker you are and make yourself individually happy like other individual thinkers that think its good. Your forcing your thoughts as well... Stop being a hypocrite... I mean really some people are not happy that is fine as it is that some are not. THERE ARE OTHER MANUFACTURES FOR PHONES OUT THERE. GO GET ONE AND STOP MAKING YOURSELF UNHAPPY WITH YOUR CURRENT FERRARI...

    GEEEEZZZ PEOPLE ITS ENOUGH

    I cannot for the life of me remember the exact name, but there's a site that sells one of those clear screen covers but it also comes with side covers to block the death grip area. Why not try one of those?

    It had a gimmicky name like "you're holding it wrong" I'm sure someone else knows what I'm talking about.

    My GF has the new iPhone, and I'm using the new HTC EVO. Each device has it's pro's/cons. I'm not a fanboy of either. They both are great phones. Let's hope Apple can recover from this. I'm sure they will....

    Invisishield. And from YouTube videos it doesn't fix it.
