    Not real sure where you come up with "iPhone clearly have a problem" tudtran, as it's been demonstrated that it's the technology (which is use by the entire industry), and not just this hardware.

    Apple's in the spotlight because it's the iPhone. Other phones do this and Job's wasn't the only one to point it out. He should have left the "Antenna" site down though, no need to defend your product by shifting the spotlight. It's fine if you want to inform your customers that it's normal, but your going to tear into your PR image by posting other phones on your site as a defense.
    Really?

    I do agree Jobs is an idiot for riling up the competition. Wasting time testing others' phones that clearly work fine. It's not hard to see what caused the problem here.
    I agree with what you said with the exception of "Wasting time testing others' phones that clearly work fine"

    The question has never been if the iPhone works or not. I have one and it works just fine. It was simply the display of the bars that is in question which was demonstrated to happen with all phones that use this similar technology.

For me I like the look and feel of it as well as functionalities, but to cover it which add some thickness to it, doesnt look as appealing. That's why Steve design the thinnest smartphone on the market. Well that doesn't hold true anymore with the bumper or should I said BUMMER
    once again it want that many people who complained in comparison to the total units sold

    Some or all Iphone4 should work even without this bumpers or case. And no, this is not a permanent fix if you're having reception and proximity sensor problems.

    I think Steve did say that the proximity sensor problems are going to be fixed in the next firmware update... But I could but wrong

    Anybody thought of why the deadline for the free bumpers is 30 Sep.? Methinks it is because they would have fixed the antenna hardware flaw by then and all orders shipping after Sep 30 wouldn't be affected by the death grip. Jobs DID hint at a possible hardware fix to the problem in his conference.

    But, but.....it's Apple. They can never be wrong. They have a $100million antenna testing facility that is useless if u don't give your engineers TIME to test the f**king component.

    Come on Steve. Did u really think you could bury this with a half-*** free case giveaway that people are also having problems with?

    Seriously!?!

    If this problem were as wide spread as you claim it is.....why is APPLE the only one on the news?

    You're just settling because u know people are still buying the damn phone and will continue to do so. You really don't give a damn about your consumers as long as the cash is flowing in do you?

    I hope the long-term implications of your lame actions during this whole ordeal come back to bite you big time square in your ***.

    Good day Sir!

    People get off the stupid bumper issue. They came out with their fix. Either respect it and keep the phone or return the damn thing. As far as Apple throwing htc Nokia ect under the bus well I don't agree 100%. But when you read the 5 million posts on this site with alot of people claiming to be consumer advocates (read you will see them). Well in a sense Apple has just as much right.

    And yes people other phones have issues as well. Now I am by no means an APPLE fan boy. But I like everyone who bought a iPhone have the choice to keep it or move on. No since in being a freaking child and calling people names because the decision we made was to keep the phone. And for those that returned it.... Get off your high horse and find another product to complain about. Your arguments are not only old they are freaking stupid. You all asked for a fix if you don't like it make a decision.

    Too many, that's why this thing is national headline. Other probably didn't how to test it right. You must hold it for atleast 30 sec at and place where you get 2 or 3 bars. You will see your bars will go down.

    Daring Fireball is bringing up a TOTALLY irrelevant point. I have seen on MANY phones that you are not supposed to cover certain regions for optimal performance, but the difference with this is its not a death spot. Actually I've never has any problem covering the phones at those spots even though the manual says you should try to avoid it. iPhone 4's can't be held in a persons left hand. That's different.

    Really? You can't figure out why Apple is in the news more than any other phone manufacturers? Couldn't be the millions of products sold in a single week, the Hype around the yearly i-Product releases, the Media events they hold, the conferences, or overall stigma or one of the most popular phones on Earth? Jeez, why do they get so much attention.

    BTW, search for Droid X problems or Evo 4G problems and you'd be surprised at the results. Battery failure, screen failure, dropped calls, antenna fade via death-gripe (say it ain't so), lags, poor camera, slow activation, etc. But the spotlight is on Apple because it always is, problem or not, they generate Hype, that's their biggest company attribute. The more objective folks might notice that there is actually a "major" problem at every iPhone release too...
    Really?

    Again, other phones do have the same problem. They even put that in writing. What bothers me is that people, bash Apple and Steve Jobs for stating the facts. Even if Apple decided to recall the iPhone 4 people would find a way to complain about that. He addressed the issue, he said that they aren't perfect. Wavied the restock fee, giving free bumpers, cases, etc..refunds. I didn't have to have Steve Jobs tell me that smartphone antenna's have issues. They always have and always will. No matter which one you buy. So if you don't like the little bar thing, live in a weak AT&T area..take it back and get your money before the 30 days. If not get over it. These other companies put what Jobs said in writing and on their websites. So why fuss about "you pointed your finger at me". If anything he gave them all FREE worldwide advertisements..

    Their problems? The phones Apple pointed out have the same problems. Every one is bashing Apple for their problems but why not the other companies? And if you forget, only 1.7% users are having this problem, which is about 51,000, and thats because of the area they live in. Not such a big deal as people make it out to be.

    Providing a workaround is not the same as fixing a problem.

    Yes all phones suffer from the same attenuation problems, but the external antenna exacerbates the issue on the iPhone 4. If it were simply the normal attenuation that plagues the entire industry then a bumper or even a piece of duct tape would not be able to fix the problem.

    It's the consumers with nothing but hatred for successful companies like Apple that threw Steve Jobs under the bus with all this trash.

    I have held my iPhone 4 in all kinds of ways that restrict the signal and I haven't dropped any calls yet just to test if it did but normally I hold any mobile phone just like the guy does in the videos on the Apple website and not by trying to squeeze the life out of it, yes I saw a signal decrease but never dropped calls and guess what, the same thing with other mobile phones, the signal lowers but stays connected so I don't see how this makes the iPhone the culprit.

    Everyone who has a chip on their shoulder (sorry, a whole bag of chips) should just take what Apple is offering and stop whining like bloody children.

    GET OVER IT, IT'S A PHONE!!!!!!
