you know the you tube song they had at the beginning of yesterdays press con that is a great song to describe all you people, Jobs was just showing idiots like you guys that other phones had the same problem and no one made a big deal with them like they did with apple ,no one really said any thing about the one hour my girl gets with her evo and at least you dont see any of the apple buttons fall of like the rim ball fall out of the stupid black berry

I can't understand how many people actually believed Steve yesterday. It's devastating. I'm glad nokia hit back.
I've been using nokia phones since 1998 and I've had no reception problems at all. But that's in europe.
edit: this is pathetic what apple fanboys say. Any1 having issues is an idiot. Just great!

It is sad to see apple respond by trying to fault other companies to minimize their issues. The whole part of the site dedicated to antennae issues is just admittance and a childish way of doing so. Definitely epic.

whooo war!!! why don't they stop messing around with one damn problem and join forces the make the ultimate phone! that would be epic..

1) Droid = Horrible Battery life, crappy android programming kills it. Look at reviews Im not going to explain my self in detail over and over.
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.
Maybe this will make you and other users understand LOL

"WHY ARE YOU BLAMING ME"...all the other kids could have done it..why me? Well we expect more out of you since you hold yourself to a higher standard. So now Apple wants to be held to the same standard as it's competitors.I always thought they wanted to better than them? The reason I got an iPhone and then an iMac was 'THEY' are better..I guess NOT anymore says Steve JobsU. We are all in the same boat says he we all drop calls and bars...wow..thx Steve for the mediocrity."It takes a rare thing, a turning point, to free oneself from any obsession. Be it prejudice or hate, or, even love"

I have had all phones since the first, and the iPhone 4 is the best by far, I've had no problems whatsoever, Some people on here obviously have no idea how companies work otherwise they wouldn't keep posting these ridiculous statements about AppleCare and why they are giving bumpers give it a second thought before you start blabbering off about it..

OK since we don't know the exact amount of iPhone4's have been sold i done some calculating.
now based on the 3 days, they sold 1.7mil so for the other 19 days its been out i added up 1.7mil then halved it so they sold half each day (they prob sold more)
1.7mil * 19 / 2 = 16 150 000 + 1 700 000 = 17 850 000
1.7% of 17 850 000 = 303 450
0.55% of 17 850 000 = 98 175
Total = 401.625
so this is what apple are saying are the results of phone being taken back and people phoning in saying there guffed.
its probable more than that but hey Apple aren't going to say so it would hurt them to much.
Oh an every one saying i can do this on my 3G or 3Gs go some where else i have 2 bars in my house and i loose none if i cover the damn phone with both hands though i do loose all signal if i cover it in tinfoil.

I really like my iPhone 4, rather not have a case, but can live with, just got a Vroom case, feel better about it now If I do drop my phone. BUT, sometimes the screen comes on when talking, this has to be fixed. Was talking last night, and the other person start asking if I was there, my check hit the mute button while talking. This has happened 8 or 10 times before, if not mute, some other app like the camera. I have not updated to 4.0.1 yet. Does the up date take care of this, or should I return the phone for another one?

I have had my iPhone4 since June 23rd and haven't had a problem. I have bought an iPhone every year since they have come out and every year the product has been significantly improved, whether by hardware or software.
Other than on the news and forums, I have yet to see an iPhone 4 (in person) display Loss of Signal due to the death grip. Sounds more like a manufacturing problem affecting select phones. Maybe Apple needs to re-Validate their manufacturing process.
All cell phones have issues, whether it's hardware, software, or a lack of functionality. No product is perfect otherwise there would be no need for further technological advancements. Analyzing flaws can help improve a product, but dwelling on a single "known" flaw creates narrow vision that loses sight of what really matters.
A product is a product. You either like it or you don't. Luckily if you don't, there isn't a lack of demand for it.

This is a BIG BS from Apple ! I have been holding back from buying iPad + iPhone 4 till now, looks like they will not be getting my biz. I will prefer to support others than Apple from now on and hope other will do the same to teach Apple a lesson !

I can't believe that they could try to bring in other phone companies for there own issue. If they made a mistake, this ISN'T the time to be ganging up on the other phone companies and trying once again to make themselves look cool. Just fix the problem, stop trying to cause lawsuits again....iPhone 4 16GB Jailbroken/Unlocked for T-Mobile USA with all the bells and whistles.
If I helped solve your problem, Press "Thanks!" for me ^^

RIMs response was very well written. Polite but very mean and aggressive at the same time. Apple is in a spot it's never been before and they are really effing this up by dragging others onto it.

i dont understand how these guys can respond when he showed proof. unless you are going to claim that he altered your phone (neither nokia, or im did this) then your just responding for no reason.
there's a battle rapper who said this and i think it applies
"you screaming for no reason, you Samuel Jackson"
