    Not at all. I'm just saying that if you are not experiencing signal drop when holding those other phones, then you most likely wont experience it with the iPhone 4.

I run a painting business on the side and hire high-school kids. I can bet they know the difference between "your, and "you're" you ******* moron."


    The saga of ignorance continues! Ok, I'll stoop to YOUR level since the name calling continues, despite a huge attempt of being the bigger person.

    Your an ignorant moron! Go paint something and shut up already!

    You mean the reply to this mature gem I received first?:

    I love irony. Maybe change your name from flash to fail.

    OK here is an idea. Instead of arging about it and also arguing about how sumb Apple was to to release a phone that they knew had a flaw. Why doesnt everyone who owns an Isuck 4, return it and get ur money back. Then everyone else who has any other type of Iphone, sell it to those Isuck 4 owners for the price of the Isuck 4. This way, they will atleast have a phone that works 99% of the time. That other 1% is when the phone is turned off.

    Then noone will have anything to argue about anymore. Apple will be out a crap load of money. And they'll be forced to make a REAL PHONE next time.

    2) Evo, even WORSE battery life, in a review done by engadget showed the Evo from 75% battery life and gone down to 30% in 7 minutes. Explain? Did you see how long the iPhone battery lasts?
    3) Any of Apples laptops, all have 9-10 hour battery life. Now please tell me, how many laptops are there in the world which such epic battery specifications.

    Reason I am not comparing Bold 9700 is because its not a multi touch smart phone in the same area as the iPhone or Droid etc. SO battery life cannot be compared in such fashion.
    You attempt to refute his statement by using companies he never mentioned to begin with? That, boys and girls, is what grownups call a straw man fallacy.

    This problem is only occurring in now reception areas. Now because of these people think the iPhone 4 sucks. They fail to realize that its the best phone in the market as of now. So what they have no other carriers? So What there 1.7% cases of "death grip" crap going around? Look at the features of the phone, best battery life, best screen quality [Pixel density] best multitouch, [I think I can safely say, strongest built design], gyroscope, multitasking without battery drainage, facetime, best camera in the smartphone market, only 5mp with 720p HD video and picture which looks better than their competitors HTC etc with their 8 Mp cameras. List goes on. Best part, the iPhone is ORIGINAL. Not a rip off like all the others.

    If you think the iPhone 4 sucks, all I can say is, you sir need to get a brain. Go ahead return it and get a droid/htc phone, then you will cry back.
    First off, you don't have to say 1.7% out of 100%. It just makes you look stupid. Percent means exactly that, per 100.

    How many users are affected? At 1.7% of 3,000,000+ users, you have over 51,000 users that are affected. That's a pretty sizable amount of problems.

    Your list of reasons as to why the phone is the best phone on the market may very well be true except there's just one huge part missing from it; it's performance as AN ACTUAL PHONE. Steve even said that it drops more calls per 100 than the 3GS does.

    Don't get me wrong, I love my i4 but it's this blind loyalty and dismissal of facts that go against your opinion that makes people so sick and tired of you Apple fanboys.

    By the way, do you even have an iPhone 4?

    First off, you did not even read what I said. Just read a little bit closer between the lines and maybe you will understand. Here is a clue, how about look at the person I quoted? Thats a good idea. Do you see where it talks about the battery? Good good, now do you see where HTC Eris is included in the test footage from Apple, I simply put that phone in comparison with battery capacity. Put them together? Good job you did it! Does it make sense now!?


    1)
    First off, you don't have to say 1.7% out of 100%
    Well no durr, I was making a statement which no one seemed to understand. They keep thinking like 80% of the people are affected, which is clearly not true.

    2)
    Your list of reasons as to why the phone is the best phone on the market may very well be true except there's just one huge part missing from it; it's performance as AN ACTUAL PHONE.
    I think I made my self quite clear when I said
    This problem is only occurring in now reception areas. Now because of these people think the iPhone 4 sucks.
    And I understand the problem and the performance, But like I said only 1.7 % are affected, not SUCH a big deal. Can it be better? Yes, of course.

    3)
    blind loyalty and dismissal of facts
    Umm? Dismissal of facts? Everything I said was true, and Fanboy? Lol, don't make me laugh.

    4) Yes I do have a iPhone 4.

    I really do wish everyone who bought iPhone 4 and have issues with it do return it, with enough people return it Apple will rethink their strategy. Because of people holding on to it it will not get them to do jack.

    I have all 4 of the different models of iPhones and the only one that I can get the signal to drop by holding it a certain way is the iPhone 4. Steve Jobs is full of it and just cant bring himself to admit that he released an iPhone that has a major design flaw! What a loser!

    i agree with most here.
    saying my product has a bad antenna but hey we are not the only one is pretty lame.

    Also i never saw those manufacturers come into the news on a death grip issue.
    Ofcourse any antenna gets weaker if you cover it but appearently these menufacturers have been doing more inovation on that area then apple.

    But since it's confirmed by apple i think i will wait a little longer before buying a iphone 4 now to see if they do anything else then give a ugly bumper to it....

    The other companies didn't get brought up in the news because they were not the big story and people acutally care about the iPhone 4. If you do not like the phone, return it, man up, and stop ********. It will not be the last apple product you buy because if you have bought a mac book pro (i did), then eventually you will continue to buy apple products because they are some of the most amazing things out there. Stop ******** so much, return your phones if you don't want it, and maybe some else will buy your phone and put a case on it, (I have a 3G and have never used it without a case).

    AGAIN, man up, stop ********, its getting annouying, and return it.
