Anonymous, 25 Jun 2010I got to give it to Apple's marketing department: they are brilliant. Honestly! What other man... moreIt's not brainwashing at all. That's a silly thing to say. People still buy the iphone because they are willing to overlook its imperfections for its other strong features. Just like how you are with the device of your choice.
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2010Yes I agree with you. Your low end phone probably does not have this problem. But you see yo... moreThe Samsung Wave has it all that the Iphone 4 has and is more cheap and hasn't those problems.

"Update on the reception issue from my buddy who has been hitting his head against the wall:
Got off the phone with Apple. They're sending me a new one overnight. They said they're aware of the issue, and it has something to do with a missing protective coating on some of the parts."
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2010I am not referring to HONEST complaints from those who bought the iphone4. I am personally no... moreIf i buy an economy class car, i won't be much shocked by a few shortcomings but a lamborghini? Anything but perfect would be too hard to swallow. You don't expect a rational human being to pay so much for trash and not complain.
Plus, why buy a car with a gas pedal that doesn't work?
my nokia device does wat ur iphone cannot, mk calls!!! thts wat its made fr right!! well it has a 5mp camera wth dual LED flash.. a perfectly working bluetooth device.. volume rocker switches r in place.. its a capacitive touchscreen wth multitouch function.. i get million songs frm the ovi stores n 1000's of other applications.. at jst 320$.. i dnt spend a fortune.. i dont waste time crying fowl.. simple.. i love companies that make phones, n not plastic..
Why it was made of steel and glass, when every iPhone will be equipped with loosy bumpers and protectors?
Isn't the steel there to be touched?
Is it looking better with this extra protection?
Are you adding extra protection to your car - additional bumpers and foil to protect the paint?
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2010same with my low-end cellphone, full bars, but i don't have to be concerned if i am holding it... moreYes I agree with you. Your low end phone probably does not have this problem. But you see your low end phone is not as thin as the iphone4. It's not as beautiful as the iphone4. It does not have a retina display. It does not have the iphone's multitouch capacitive display, it doesmnot have an a4 processor, etc. So you know what, I'd rather buy a bumper or a case for my iphone to get rid of this issue, than use your low end phone. Thank you.
I got to give it to Apple's marketing department: they are brilliant. Honestly! What other manufacturer manages to braiwash consumers to a point where they spend a fortune on a faulty product, not to mention its technical shortcomings, and they are happy with it? Not only they are happy, they defent it with religious fanaticism. Brilliant!
A company it can made a phone but in wrong d3sign..
Cant solve the problem and juz ask/teach his consumers change their holding style???
Don't forget to the number of Pre Ord3r the iphone4..some guy post it on gsmarena in his comment before..
Stev3 j0b really get a tro0ble..lol
well m using nokia since a 6months, it doesnt freeze or lag.. or just DISCONNECTS calls when i touch it on the left side or the right side or anywher else.. its a solid phone, n vry reliable.. iphone was n is crap.. apple better stick to making pc's n tablets.. let the better companies deal wth phones..
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2010hahaah talking about lexus? first of all, CALLING is the primary function of this phone... so ... moreYou can make calls with the iphone4, so I do not know what you're talking about. Also, people will be buying cases or bumpers for their iphone4 anyway which will totally get rid of this issue. So what are you whining about the iphone couldn't make calls. Just proves that you are just a hater.
I've always tried not to bash a brand or person but in my opinion Apple and Steve Jobs have gone too far by telling us that we're the ones who don't know how to use our phones and their design is completely perfect.this time they've showed they don't have any respect for peoples money 'cause of some fan boys who worship a normal mid range phone and praise it as the Best!!hahahahaha... before IPhone made their phones every blog used to be a place in which people gave their opinions about a product without getting bashed from Iphone fan boys and we could ask some questions about certain functions of a phone and get answers but after those blind and mindless fans presumed Apple is a godsend and they are chosen ones to us this phone all blogs turned to a battlefield.this time those fan boys and their company got what they've deserved and now none of those fan boys are around to say something except some more arrogant ones.so to them, spend your money and get a crappy device which is Untrustable and Flawed in a Mobile phones basic function...Making Calls
I think it's amazing how some fans still say that it ain't a big problem someone tell us "don't steer left 'cause you'll probably won't be able to make the left turn; if you want to drive, just drive forward".
Well, we could give a lot of real life experiences to make an analogy here...: Just imagine you have an amputated arm, the left arm to be more precise, and you e-mail Steve Jobs because your iPhone 4 signal reception is too bad, and Steve replys: "Just avoid grabbing it with your left hand".. lolol wouldn't it be fun? or just disrespectful?
Next iPhone will come out with some clamps and tripod just to make sure you won't get signal reception problems =)
Here you are, making an emergency call and suddendly, cause you forgot you couldn't hold your phone with your left hand, the call goes down... and you get stuck, with no emergency solution at all because your phone is special... and it has its own special way of being hold!
[deleted post]Liar? I didn't lie about anything at all. You're the hater that trolls in all iphone articles. I don't even see this issue affecting you since you don't have an iphone4.
Lol, 25 Jun 2010Really what a great news lol. Try a nokia phone and Hold it from any direction, it will always... moreI had a nokia device before. Thanks but no thanks. I'd rather hold my iphone a certain way to make a call than deal with nokia's laggy and freezing OS, and its other issues. Also, a simple bumber that serves as a protection for my iphone will totally get rid of this issue.
well a nokia doesnt cost me a fortune.. n nokia isnt a foolish company to mess up with basic functionalities.. nokia will always have its basics correct.. only a dumb company would launch a phone with sucha major defect, thts wat u purchase a phone for in the first place.. to mk calls!! apple is foolish to launch sucha defective device.. 1 in almost 2yrs n tht too crap.. wat is apple, the slowest n i guess jst money minting company..
Eldar on www.mobile-review.com is also showing another flaw with the New iPhone4,some of the Volume + buttons have been placed the Wrong way round,i wonder if the Workers at the Factory are feeling Sorry for the Person who leaked the iPhone4 out ages ago an got sacked,so decide to make the new iPhone more faulty than Expected,i bet Apple will be getting Investigators in to find out why all the Flaws in the new model are Happening
