Ok. Check simple things first. First of all they will try to determine whether the fault is soft or hard based. If it's IOS4 soft issue, bug etc... or a network operator issue. There is no doubt that Jobs might try a desperate stunt to point the blame as usual.
If it's hard fault. The possibility that the 3G antennae is grounded properly to the metal casing? Maybe the metal casing doesn't do as good as job of grounding as jobs hoped. Maybe it's faulty components, a batch of faulty components, 3G module wiring, etc...
What ifs? is the question? It's all gone pete tong. Fortunately for me I'm not surprised having experienced problems with many a apple products in the past when I was a Computer Network engineer. So it doesn't suprise me really.
I hope you guys out there got that. Now some of those owners of this MAGICAL device spotted yellow tint on the screen at different places. (gsmarena.com)
Some dropped calls and network signal when hold in left hand. (engadget.com)
And it's just proofed that it's not that MAGICAL strong when ifixyouri.com test the drop test, which iphone said its MAGICAL glass is 30 times stronger thatn glass.
You guys keep praying and waiting and sleeping in the tent a month infront of MAGICAL apple store to get this crap? Grow some ball man!!!
That's how Marketing is a big subject when you go to college dude!
I just bought i phone 4 it seem to me that it has problem with new "Gsm antenna" design if i hold it using left hand it's loosing signal
iphone=epic fail...just and expensive and crapy phone with 2005 features
The problem is. This just won't go away for apple. What with all the consumers that have bought one & with all the review sites testing. Apple have invested heavily a design which has already been implemented down to the last design & component placement.
This would mean a complete revamp with extra time money r&d to change every architecture floor will just have to be redesigned. I will be amazed if it's just some loose wire inside or something. I guesse we don't know these details yet. If it isn't & it's a architectural or placement problem. Then you know what I mean. (read above)
So what do you think? Do anbody know anybody with IP4 who dones't experience left handed call drops? Or is it a loose wire, faulty component, faulty batch of components or is it a design fault floor architectural in nature in every device. hmm?
if this doesnt work well as a phone then its a glorified iphone touch.
@Albert. Go do some research for yourself & leave the technicalities to people that understand technology & how it should be researched properly, designed propery & constructed properly & in this case especially designed with common sense & safety in mind.
How dumb are apple really. See just how bad the design floors REALLY are your new apple iphone is infested with them. 24 hours & 3 major problems & counting.
Theres no getting out of this one for apple stupidity. They must of known & obviously I assume they just tried to hide it. The device "should have" gone through some strict QOS quality testing routines.
Also how on earth did it pass the FCC regulation. WHaaat. That looks bad to say that putting an antennae where your hand or wrist is fed with radiation poisoning a whole new level of worry if people start getting exposed more to cancerous diseases from more radiation exposure to your hand.
But the thing died before you make your first call. Epic fail. Big time. Oh dear Mr Jobs. Oh dear!...
Engineer Man, 24 Jun 2010@Albert. Go research & see just how bad the design floors REALLY your new apple iphone has... morethats the new antenna system steve jobs claimed no one have used it before in any device , we know now why no one used it cause its a big fail :D
u have to install all softwares that u want.. huh... its not in the iphone rite away... :-(

ALbert, 24 Jun 2010I have been selling iphone 4 in Uk as preorders and normal orders too .dont know about everyon... moreyou know what, its not about the price dude, its also the quality, and aside from that the phone doesn't have any new features at all aside from the retina display which is junk, think first before you post your opinion, its very useless
3 issues in less than 24
you can certainly scratch the iPhone 4 steve jobs claimed its not scratchable.
call drop issues due to bad antenna design
yellow spots over the display .
Too bad !
what's going on apple, i wondered how will the iphone fanboys react about the issues of the very pricey phone with a not so advance features, yellow spots on the screen, antenna issue, signal is going up and down depending on how you hold it, what a mess...and to top it all, the covered glass which is according to apple's engineer is hardened for safety has been cracked after just one test....good job apple
ALbert, 24 Jun 2010I have been selling iphone 4 in Uk as preorders and normal orders too .dont know about everyon... moreit looks really good but we are nervous to spend money on it based on the antenna issue and the screen spots issue. I rather wait a while to see how widespread the issue is before i spend anything.
I have been selling iphone 4 in Uk as preorders and normal orders too .dont know about everyone else but all i have received so far is excellient reviews. not a single complaint. everyone is happy. comeon ppl if u want it and can afford it then get it but dont criticize it just coz u cant afford it. this is an amazing phone.
hani, 24 Jun 2010they cannot fix the call drops issues its a hardware problem not software problem the new ant... moreSuch a pity. I thought these were tested thoroughly before they were sold. Looks like I may have to get something else if this cant be fixed. I wonder how many will still sell though now that everyone is made aware of this.
Maybe the next batch would have a slight change in design or something.
