As for the proximity sensor, I had trouble with it on 4.0, but it seems to have been fixed in later updates. Is that just me or was it actually fixed (I'm on 4.2.1)?

Haters are just searching for problems, every device on the planet has a f***ing problem or two. Last week my lab did a test too, apparently if you put an iPhone under water it will NOT allow you to make a call....someone call consumer report.

"This is true but the phones affected is most to All of them, its been proven to me."
You came to my house and then followed me around all day while I made calls and noted down when I had a "death-grip" experience? Probably not, but even if you had
you'd have no data because MY PHONE DOES NOT DROP CALLS. Period. I've had it since last summer, and it has dropped a total of two (2) calls- one to my son, using HIS i4 400 miles away in his house that kills cell phone signals (we've had issues with my Razr, my 3G, my 3GS, his RAZR, his 2G, his 3G, his 3GS, and now the i4) and once to a land line. That's twice in about eight (8) months. My RAZR dropped more than that back before I ever got an iPhone. So your having it "proven" to you is nice, but that's just, like, your opinion, man.Senior

The nexus one suffers from the same thing. I have owned one and if you cover the bottom it'll lose signal and drop calls. If you don't believe me that is fine. There IS a 70 page thread about it(last time I check) about it on Google help forums.

I have the Verizon iPhone and have never had an issue with this. If you go to their site and read the whole report, you'll find out that they say something along the lines of, 'the phone itself still loses signal, but most users will no notice the drop in signal because it's so small.' So in essence, unless you're in an extremely low service situation, for some reason DON'T have a case on your $200 phone, AND are holding it in an extremely awkward position, then you wont notice the drop in signal.

NOT FIXED...the 4.1 software was suppose to make it better and it did a little, but its not fixed. The 4.1 software also made my keyboard touch a little off... i press "A" and I get "S" way more often.

The updates fixed my prox issue, hasn't lit up on me once since (couple months now). It was to the point that I was muting people every single call, and now I'm happy.
As for the death grip, just mentioning it brings out all the trolls huh, lol. I like my bumper, it's way less bulky than those stupid otterboxes.

Good going dude. You may be the only one with a non exposed antenna on an iPhone 4 or your post is bs.
Maybe you never grip the phone in the incorrect way but If you own the phone you own a phone with an issue. I am sure of it. I happen to be an electrical engineer but this idea is basic. I am sure you can understand it if you just take your head out of Steve jobs *** for a second. Again I love my iPhone 4 but come on it's a flaw; being one of only 2 flaws it's not a big deal.
Be a man about it and admit the flaw. Then defend the product.

It amazes me as to how many people sit here and defend a flawed phone. If you bought a brand new car and the blinker wouldn't ever turn off would you defend it? How about a can opener that almost finishes opening cans? These are phones first and foremost, but they fail at the very thing they are supposed to excel at. Buy a bumper! Buy a bumper! What a bunch of sheep.

My dad has the iphone4 on verizon and the "death grip" is not really a problem i rarely notice it!

F Mike geekess, bet he uses the iPhone 4.Nothing in life is easy.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Lab as in "we wrapped the iPhone in tin foil, put it in a wire cage, wrapped that in tin foil, put it in a fish tank, put the fish tank in a coffin, burned the coffin until it melted, and then squeezed the ashes as hard as we could, but only after we transported them to the moon. We got bad reception!"
