    They already said that they'll keep researching closely on the antenna. I've said it before, but revisions like this as obvious as they may be take months at a minimum to get to the consumer. Halting current production, delayed international release dates, coming with the fix in such a small timeframe and finally recalling replacing the existing 3 million phones would not only be impossible, it's cost would be in the billions.

    Today Apple took the issue head on, dances somewhat around it while admitting that there is something going on. They also provided you with the only solution they could honestly give while giving you options within it (not just bumpers for free).

    The situation sucks, the death grip is very real, but Apple like any corporation is a huge machine. You can't just stop it, apple a fix, and resume. These fixes will take time.

    I honestly don't expect to see a hardware fix until the next iPhone and we'll have to ride this year out with bumpers or iPhone-less.
    Well said. Why not offer a voluntary exchange for those effected then? If this is not effecting all users then it would be safe to say everyone has the deathgrip problem but only those are effected by there area coverage? I'm just confused on why they are saying new phones being released are not experiencing the same issues.

    Free Case! That's a WIN for me!

    Signal degradation of my iPhone 4 has never affected me... EVER!
    If you have an iPhone 4 ... and you don't like it... Bring it back!
    If you DON'T have an iPhone 4... thanks for you're support in getting me a free case. But now, you're help is no longer needed... find another cause to back. (the less Ignorant people on my side the better!... nothing personal.)

    I am not sure about the bumper. I have an iFrogz case that is not helping me at all. I drop calls all the time. Never dropped a call on my 3Gs. Is the bumper any better than a standard case?

    Steve said only 1 out of 100 calls dropped, if I'm not mistaken? Haha I drop 1 out of 3.

    I didn't call to complain about dropped calls because they were already well aware of the issue and wouldn't be able to do anything for me. The 1.7% is not an accurate number.

    GEEEEZZZ PEOPLE ITS ENOUGH
    Clearly you missed the ENTIRE point of that post, its about this laim "fix" that crApple has offered, NOT A REAL SOLUTION!
    I actually dont have the "death grip" problem with my 4, and i'm undecided on returning it!
    Those facts have NO BEARING on my opinion of crApples resolution OR my OPINION of the people who are affected and accept this BS "fix" as a permanent solution to a MAJOR design and/or manufacturing flaw!

    If anyone is a hypocrite, its you! Bashing me for "forcing my thoughts"? Isnt that what these forums ARE FOR?? and isn't that exactly what you just did to me!?!? So shut up and go get your damn free bumper!

    You fools can hate and flame on me all you want for this comment, but at least I am capable of deductive reasoning and individual thought!

    All I can do now is PRAY that the backlash to crApple from the media and people with a brain, finally buries them and brings that arrogant fuktard Steve Jobs to his knees!
    Dude! Seriously??? If you hate jobs... Apple... IPhones that much go else where. I think your the fuktard!!

    yes they did, but they also stated they won't have enough, so cases will also be issued as an option.
    Really?

    This is a ruse from Apple. They show you a hand of "fixing antenna issue" with this release, then you release JB, then they release the fix for proximity issue a few days later and brick phones.

    Sneaky Jobs...like my VC enemy in 'Nam.
    That's pretty much the dumbest thing ever written.

    Although the antenna issue is there.... but the majority of people aren't returning their beloved iPhone 4, So Apple did what's less damaging to them...which is free bumpber. What did you expect Apple to do?

    I hope we can all move on now. I need a jailbreak-fix badly for my i4! I really hope we can release the JB before 4.1 is released...but I understand if the devs want to wait.

    No kidding. My phone looks awful with all these default icons.

    This is not that simple for Apple. Up to now, Apple still denies being a design flaw. I don't think that Apple wants to deny, but they have to deny being a design flaw. If Apple acknowledges this, Apple will become iPhone-less before the hardware modification implemented and approved by FCC. Does anyone think that Apple dare to sale a product with design flaw knowingly?

    Called UPS, she is in box and waiting for pickup.

    OMG free bumpers? that's know they are going to fix it? how come they just can't redesign the phone with the antenna on the inside... can't be that hard

    No more car analogies, please!
