Do not post bare iPhone 4 death grip video's we all know what will happen.
Buy a case like I did for the MANY iPhone's in my household and make sure the case covers the problem area and guess what no death grip.
And since cases are free now, I do not see why people still use the iPhone without one, I mean yea is looks great and I do not want to hide anything blah blah blah.
The free case options one is called the REVEAL for a reason.
END OF CRYING, antenna problem sucks and is a big deal if you are a 11 year old Twilight fan, but with my Incipio case while I wait for my free cases is no problem.
Dude above try the Incipio cases they work for me.
I mean also I understand this antenna problem sucks big time it is a literal design flaw, but it can be fixed.

He should totally be fired. He cost Apple literally billions of dollars through both the free case program and by tarnishing Apple as a brand. If any company loses more than they are gaining through either a division or a single person, they should get the boot. This is for profit business. The phone is sexy as hell, and we can thank Jonathan Ives for that, but Papermaster was an engineer and he failed miserably at what he was hired to do.

Just ignore me guys I was in denial. Lol I've never had the problem on normal usage but when I purposely kept my hand there it dropped two calls in a row. But still I love it.

I make the bars drop for fun. When in a call though, I always naturally grip around the bridge area, with my pinky near the usb connector. Massive hands ftw

All I said is the 5 iPhone 4's in my house all have cases and work fine, how is that bragging?
Some people in here must really have money problems to think having 5 cellphones for 5 different people is fancy bragging?
Do not be such a moron on the forum please, simply letting others know that 5 out of 5 iPhone's are fine with a case and this solves it.
Giving information on a iPhone Jailbreaking forum is now bragging?
Please do not post stupid.

After all this, I find Apple quite a joke.

They always need someone to blame

There IS a difference between the death grip and just having ****** service.

This case solution and defect will shine lite on the apple fanboi vs common sense did sales really suffer?

I agree with the people here. He was just a scape goat. Even if it was his fault still Steve Jobs was notified of the antenna issue and then why he didnt fixed it before releasing the phone. Its always the employee at the bottom who gets the blame. The ones on the top save their ***.

^^Jobs is worshiped as Apple God, and God is infallible. So this myth must be maintained in order to keep the religion going. Someone must be blamed for this and must be a person high up, this outsider who worked less than 3 years and came in from a competitor IBM gets the job. I am sure there is a huge severance package setup for this person, hope someone reports on that so we know the price of being a expensive scape goat.

Dude. It's not his fault. Steve needs to take all responsibility for what the company does. IPhone = a ***, dipsh*t, dropped on its head when it was born type of phone
