Some news from MobileCrunch:
"Ah, the joys of first-batch Apple hardware. In addition to the hardware issues we’ve been seeing reported, there is now a group of users claiming that their rear-facing cameras are refusing to work at all. Apparently the shutter graphic just stays closed, and none of the buttons work. This occurs in the camera app or any app that calls in the picture-taking function, like Facebook.
Rebooting and restoring are doing nothing, so I’m guessing this is an issue with the code shipping inside the iPhone 4, since we haven’t heard reports of any other handsets freezing up. If this happens to you, you can of course reset your phone by holding the home and power buttons down for a few seconds, but if it continues, feel free to return it for a new unit. I’ll update this post if a solution is found."
A pity, the camera is the best part of this phone.
IMPORTANT: don't believe this iLiars. They are flock of brainless, uneducated sheeeps with no knowledge of technology but always crying loudly and uttering 'iPhone is the best', 'you can't afford it', 'you are jealous'.. And lies.. And lies...
The truth is iPhone is a cheap made, low end, least featured, overhyped, overpriced phone ever built in the history of mankind. Its a revolution indeed..

Anonymous, 04 Jul 2010actually this is not about iphone4 good or bad... i know what iphone capable of and not.
Th... moreSo you don't even know if this issue is real or if it will affect you?
You have never even used one and you say you have no intention of getting one, yet you feel you have a valid right to pass judgement.
Just like most of the trolls around the Internet who are blowing this issue out of all proportion.
I'm lovin the iphone 4 everyday, It has to be the best h/set ever made.
People who are not familiar with technology will not understand the ultimate power of the iphone4.
I'm so in love with it. Steve Jobs deserves a medel :-)
[deleted post]actually this is not about iphone4 good or bad... i know what iphone capable of and not.
This whole fight from us because we believe iSteve and apple has done something wrong, and they need to apologize. Their ignorant cause us (the non-ibeliever) to be angry and distrust apple.
If he were a gentlemen and do a recall, throw freebie. I will be honoring him, and might consider buying the iphone due to a good gesture.
but what he did, make me feel iSteve/Apple doesn't deserve my money.
and you know what... those bumper only cost less than a dollar for apple. giving all of iphone4 user a bumper won't make apple loosing money. just loosing a small income.
furthermore, by recalling the phone, apple guarantee that no one feel cheated, and will be more faithful in apple brand.
apple announce recall... but... for those who already bought it, can use the iphone, and make an appointment to repaint the side of iphone. and got a free bumper..
all iphone4 user rejoice, no lawsuit.
swinger will start considering apple.
and apple can take their time to repaint the side of iphone4.
Dave.J, 03 Jul 2010I upgraded my iPhone 3GS to iPhone 4 on the first week it went on. I must say it is worth it. ... morei think apple better pay someone to fix the problem & pay for the lawsuit from stealing others intellectual property.
rather than paying lots of zombie roaming here.
I upgraded my iPhone 3GS to iPhone 4 on the first week it went on. I must say it is worth it. I strongly disagree with all hateful comments here! this is really one of the most capable devices ever! and the retina display is AWESOME!! reading emails, text, watching video is never like any other device of the same size.
People who are saying there is a problem in signal reception, I never had any issue, its better than my 3GS.
it's funny to see that iphone4 have the lowest rating of all iphone.
Troy, 03 Jul 2010I can easily say the iphone 4 is the best because i've not had any problems with my iphone 4.
... moreit's funny to see iphone user to say 'if you don't like it return it within 30 days'. It just like seeing an apple customer service praying "don't sue us".

[deleted post]I agree with U... The iphone 4 is still not even better than the HD2 (9 months old & iphone 4 just released)... The Hd2 is thrid best behind Droid X and EVO (due to hardware specs only)... Iphone 4 is not even better than the iphone 3GS phone, but people will buy the very disappointed iphone 4......
I phone 4...No words..Its just AWESOME...:-) would like to but one for ma self...but now its not affordable...sadly...
[deleted post]No, you can't change the battery for yourself.
You have to Apple store. And Pay more $$$ for replacying the battery as Apple is a money oriented company not customer oriented.
Troy, 03 Jul 2010I can easily say the iphone 4 is the best because i've not had any problems with my iphone 4. ... moreOn the planet? I don't think so. I, for one, wouldn't buy it so that's one piece of planet where it's not the best. And I'm sure there are more. You can also ask the other 4,3 billion cell phone users on the planet if they think it's the best. Man, you can't even attach a wrist strap to it, yet it shatters when it falls.
I can easily say the iphone 4 is the best because i've not had any problems with my iphone 4.
The signal on my iphone4 is perfect and never changes when holding it in various ways, I've got big hands and i've done allsorts of tests and it's been good for me so far touch wood.
For those who have had problems take it back you've got 30 days to do so.
I out there athink there is lots of faulty iphone4 and think apple should be made responsible to repair the iphone 4 that are faulty.
Lets hope Apple sort this out but in the meantime I still say Iphone4 is the best phone on the planet
