my area is pretty low signal most of the time. i never drop bars when holding the phone.
the only time i experience "death grip" is when im in GREAT coverage with 3G. if i hold it on that spot i can get two-three bars to drop, but i never lose a signal, and it never stops data from sending/receiving.

people still complaining about the death grip issue? you were given two options to choose from. So either return it and get your money back or keep it and shutup about it until there is a fix for it.I Take Three L's To The Head...Love, Live, Life then I'm Dead

Do people seriously believe that Apple is not working on a real fix for this? QQ on the Internet gets old fast. They pushed the free case/bumper and full return options until September 31st for a reason. This is not a date they pulled out of their ***, but a soft deadline for them to try to fully recreate and fix the problem so that future production runs do not have this issue. This is called a voluntary recall. Instead of biting the bullet on all 3 million phones that have been shipped, they will only have to eat a small percentage of them. Many companies have done this in the past. If you are not happy with your iPhone 4, then return it, wait until they have completed the hardware fix, and then look at repurchasing. Asking for instant results is just ridiculous. They are giving you very reasonable options for temporarily solving the issue. Plenty of people will use cases or bumpers and be perfectly satisfied with their devices. If you are not one of those people then get over yourself and return the faulty product. This isn't the first time a product has rolled out with flaws.

All I have to say about all of this is that I gave Apple a chance when I bought my 3gs and I love it so much that I was truly excited about the iPhone 4. I waited until after launch to see what little kinks would be in the phone (since every new phone has a few, even if minor) so I could determine if the phone was worth my money. Now that such a major problem exists and Apple has the audacity to actually blame the end user for "holding it incorrectly" and then pointing out that other phones have the same problem (even though most people in the real world can't replicate it), I have lost all respect for Apple. Not only that, I found myself at Verizon yesterday with my wife looking to get us two Android phones. So for anyone thinking that "Apple won't lose any sales over this", you are a naive fool. I can assure you of two sales they are currently losing out on. Apple should have recalled these phones when the reports were first out...or better yet, maybe they should have...I don't know, made a call or two on it before they mass produced them.
Sorry I forgot to quote the person I was referring to in my reply above.

All I said "on topic" was that the phone loses signal simply by having your finger on the sweet spot which is where attenuation
becomes a problem. Not from a grip, but your pinky which covers that exact spot while on a call, if lifted will not effect signal loss. *This is confirmed, and I was rudely called a moron *for a confirmed fact. * Off topic judgement of proper grammar is not what this forum is for, and name calling is childish. *I was criticized for just an improper conjecture in my post, and you not understanding facts of what I posted which led to your 8th grade name calling that led to a moderator to step in. Even though I may have been following this forum since it's inception, it's not even worth it to try and contribute with ignorant people, taking off topic stabs at someones intellectual capacity. *You may think I'm Pwned or what ever, but in all seriousness, I have better things to do in real life than geek out over a toy, and whine about it. Like I would actually get upset about someone creating a typo or an improper use of grammar. While you're posting your ignorance in geekanease, I'll be having relationships with girls loser. *Not playing with my toy gadget all the time. I bet you have 10000 friends on myspace, because that's what losers do. I was finished with this thread due to it's immaturity, but again more childish posts to follow, even after you were warned in a moderators PM about your conduct. *Good riddance*you can say, but I will*not continue to be amongst children that lash out verbally in a high school context of criticism that is rediculous at the least, and*off topic of what we're hear for. *So props to you Ronfin and venom. You both get ice cream and a diaper change! Bye children and good riddance. *

Apple knows there is a problem, and eventually those with "no problem" will call (or try to call) apple care :P
You'll see. :P
I'm going to replace my ip4 tomorrow and we'll see.
Don't tell me about the area as I already know this and it has very little to do with this whole situation. As I said b4, in MY area there was always a good signal, since the tower is just around the corner, so... did they move the tower and I get dropped calls all of the sudden? I don't think so, I can see the tower from where I'm sitting now, my chair! :P I lived here for few year, never had problem with the reception b4 nor with dropped call - I didn't know it was possible!
I like the phone very much, but not in stupid bumper!

Oh, lets cover some irony now...
Now lets conclude...

@ronfin44 - You are doing nothing but exacerbating the issue nor are you even discussing the topic of the thread anymore. Your overall attitude across the boards screams of troll and it's no wonder Mr. Overcash offered you a pacifier. Please take such discussions elsewhere.
Also, just let me know if you would like for me to point out all of your grammatical and spelling errors, because the list is plentiful.
