Thread: Steve said a Bumper would fix it :(

    Default Steve said a Bumper would fix it :(
    OK Bumper fitted and still signal fail, WTF Steve the twin fix of 4.01 with the new signal bars with a Bumper fitted and still I get the evil deathgrip. I think I'm going back to my 3GS and returning this. I'll wait for the proper fix or get a Nexus One...

    Do you actually see bars stoping or do you just have no bars to begin with? Because when mine is in a case it's just fine.

    Edit: sorry I didn't realize it was a video. Thought it was a pic. That sux.

    This is more than a bit disheartening. :/

    Someone forward that shite to Jobs' email.

    yes if affects calls, I'm not left handed but I do hold my phone in my left had and naturally have always held it they way Steve would prefer us not to becuse its the most secure way to hold a phone worth 500. and when I do the call signal gets worse and eventually drops out unless I change to fingertip hold which does not feel secure at all.

    The inconsistencies between phones is interesting. Starting with 5 bars, wIthout the bumper, my iphone loses 2 bars, with the bumper I only lose 1. However, in some places I will completely lose signal w/o the bumper but remain at 2 bars with. Cant figure out why the differences in location other than perhaps signal strength. My opinion is that the bumper merely IMPROVES things, does not FIX them.

    I always noticed my bars bouncing up n down even with a belkin clear case from day 1.

    Without the case the bars drops fast, but with the case it take 10-20 seconds to drop.

    i finally just got my 16gb phone4. signal strength is very strong, i notice one or two bars drop when im death gripping for ATLEAST 23 seconds. either way im going to wait for the white one to come out and return this one.

    this is the best (yet worst) iPhone and I think I'm keepin my iPhone 3G
    I'll wait for a better, newer, proper iPhone ( call it 4G or iPhone 5) I just hope they include 4G network capability like HTC's Evo phone!
