Most consumers have a short memory ... and Apple knows it !!

Actually, Apple consumers have brand loyalty and keep buying Mac products over and over. Nothing to do with short memory.Senior

But I still don't see how a hardware design like this doesn't affect all phones unless there was some sort of extra non-conductive coating that only got applied to a handful of phones. Which would technically be illegal without FCC approval no?

For people that is lucky enough to not have the antenna issue. Shouldn't you guys thanks consumer report and massive amount of people that complain to apple, and ultimately get free case for everyone? If you dont have a problem with your phone then ******* good for you. No one cares if your phone dont drop call. But some us have this problem.

Flames, flames, whose got the flames? Apple says only a small percentage of people have this issue or others to the point of returning them for a refund or replacement. I'm in Apple stores fairly often and I don't see lines of people complaining. I spent an hour in one store, waiting to buy my 2nd phone, and no one was going to the Bar or otherwise complaining to the personnel. Just saw 20 people waiting to buy their phones. Happily. Another time I was there for 45 minutes buying my iPad, same thing. I was in to get a case, no one complaining. Believe me, I listened for it, having read about the issues. Just saw happy people buying/testing Apple products. I'm not saying YOU are wrong with YOUR experience, just that I'd appreciate it if you'd admit I wasn't wrong with MY experience.
As to ZERO problems, grow up. Every manufactured good has its issues at some point- try buying a car after they change to a new model for $30K+ and they recall it 3 times. A $200 iPhone isn't much compared to that.
Oh, and if you don't care that my ******** phone DOESN'T drop calls, then I won't care if your ******* phone DOES. What kind of argument is that? Or discussion, for that matter? Let's keep it civil and mature - or at least over the emotional age of 14, shall we?Senior

I had my Iphone4 (4.0.2) when it was release in Mexico three weeks ago. Two bars drops when I hold it by the bottom, also experience a lot of proximity sensor problems. Still waiting for my free bumper case.

Since upgrading to 4.1, I have dropped 0 calls.

I don't have the problem at all because I don't wrap my hand around the phone. I can make it happen if I want too. I got my free case but will never use it. i use icarbons to protect the finish because I've always hated putting cases on my iphones. I DO think apple should be bashed for this problem. If you don't think that, then your mouth tastes like apples 24/7. They released a product with a pretty big flaw. That's a fact. Do I still love my phone even though the screen shattered after a 16 inch drop on the floor, yes. Do I think apple sucks for calling it bullet proof when it's fragile as hell? Yes I do. You shouldn't have to buy things to have your phone operate properly or keep it in a bubble to make sure it doesn't explode. I've very careful with my things but sooner or later mishaps happen. I still think it's the best device on the market. What's that say for the other devices available?

I wonder how many people here is denying there is a problem because if they admit to it would some how would make their expensive equipment not so perfect. Or deny there is a problem and hope there is not a fix, because if the new version comes out with redesigned antenna the older versions of iPhone4 would drop in value like a brick.
Look there is no denying the fact there is a problem with iPhone 4, your god Jobs admitted to it. He may have downplayed the numbers by saying it is a small percentage that reported the problem, but in actuality all iPhones have this because it is a design flaw unless you can somehow show your iPhone4 is designed differently. Just because you did not notice or run into the bridging the gap losing signal yet does not mean the problem does not exist.
Problem is not wrap hand around, it is closing the gap between the two antenna causing loss of signal. All you need is 1 finger barely bridging the gap between the two antenna, and the location of this gap is in a very easily touched location.

Regardless whether it has a defect with the antenna or not, I'm going to buy a case for an iphone. I'm sure most people who buy iphones will buy a case for it too.

Again, YOU say I have a problem I have never experienced. Do I believe you or my own experience? If the gap is so easily touched, why haven't I touched it? Why don't I have the issues I should have according to you? Either I am super lucky or god is smiling down on me? If this problem was so terrible, the i4 would not be flying out of the stores. And there would be lines of people waiting for a fix or a replacement or a refund. There aren't. Do some people have issues? Sure. But when you tell me I'm having trouble and I'm not, when you tell me I'm somehow doing it wrong or I WOULD have trouble, you just sound crazy. You are not convincing anyone by making universal statements. You are doing the opposite. The sky is NOT falling, Chicken Little.
Oh, wait, I'm wrong, I'm deluding myself because I love Apple so much and I want my phone to be perfect. No, wait, I jailbroke it because it is NOT perfect. Well, I must have the ONLY i4 MADE THAT WORKS!!! Yep, that's it.Senior
