What a misery for iphone users!! No video call without internet connection,
about the face time capability, think youll find iphone 4's are the only devices that have that particular service installed into the handsets. which is why you can only face time between iphone 4's! and they gave it for free as they didnt want consumers to pay for something thats already around.....PRICK!!
PHONEADDICT, 23 Jul 2010Girls, Girls & Girls, Stop debating about the IPhone signal. APPLE is not going to listen... moreaaaaaaaaand i feel sorry for steven jobs for not keeping his fingers to himself and from pointing fingers at other companies on anntenagate.
Girls, Girls & Girls,
Stop debating about the IPhone signal. APPLE is not going to listen to you all, you know. They only listen to users complain directly to them, with reporter and camera men behind. Otherwise they will be accused of trespassing. You all debating here wasting your time, or just practising on you typing.
I feel sorry for Samsung for not shutting their mouth shut. Now APPLE knows the secret of fixing the antenna for their next IPhone 5 model. Ain't that right LADIES??????
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2010that is why iphone has a video call over wifi! it cant make calls or sms!over wifi??
isnt that pure greed?? other mobile phones need not to connect to internet to do video calling...why does apple do this?? because steve jobs is GREEDY.
plus you can only do video calling on two iphone..
I'm impress wit the samsung captivate cause its the best phone out to me and I hd the iphone 4 and yes I droped calls but the phone is the same thing and the just added thing s that should have been on it since 3g version. I like the phone but for a company too all ready know the problem or better yet designed it with that flawww is what got me. That's why they sold bumper cases for the first time ever. Apple just needs to stop pointing fingers and relize that the we are not that slow . u have the most popular phone out and u cant perfect that main thing then u really dont care about your people. I'm done with apple cause I know .
that is why iphone has a video call over wifi! it cant make calls or sms!
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2010... And Nokia keep failing so goodbye to their CEO" ... And Nokia keep failing so goodbye to their CEO "
i think that should be "keeps"
anyway..atleast nokia has the most least common sense to fire thier CEO for not hitting thier expectaions...because its for thier consumers welfare..
how about apple and steve jobs????
iphone4 SHOULD NEVER BE CALLED iphone in the first place...
BECAUSE IT HARDLY FUNCTION AS A BASIC PHONE....
it should be called " iStatusSymbol "
Samsung refused to give wimpy steve jobs AMOLED screen for icrap 4 so he turned into a back stabber.
He had a chance to really shine and prove to all of us "apple haters" that he really is good enough for his god complex, and issue a recall and an appology... or this is what i would have done in his shoes... "hey, we messed up, we are going to go fix the problem at the factory and put some shielding on the antenna. Its a 1 cent fix. We'll give you bumpers for now, and as soon as the new iphone4s are rolling off the assembly line, everyone can have a free warranty exchange to the new fixed iphone4. Were really sorry about the issue and we will fix it for you".
Look, no recall, fixed phone, temp solution to keep customers happy, lots of positive PR, and probably a reenergized customer base from handling it so well...
but that didnt happen.
instead you get a finger pointing match, a denial of a real problem, lack of a permanent solution, and a temporarily free bumper.... and the negative press continues on. Word of mouth can be a powerful thing.
It has way more to do with Jobs than the i4. Here is a man that made the wrong anntenna design choice flat out he was wrong, no way to argue it (even though I have to admit when I saw it I was impressed thought it was great) So the real story is how Job refuses to A: Honest and B: Responsible is amazing and for that this story wont be stopping anytime soon. Now this isnt the first or the last company to act this way but its STEVE JOBS and APPLE! Their brand was helped built upon these kind of ideals and images.
All the jokes about Jobs having a god complex are starting to look more and more true when you have a man who cannot admit when hes wrong and just decides to point out everyone elses flaws instead of fix his own

Sales figures have nothing to do with either quality of product or whether or not the antenna is a design flaw. It is. Steve Jobs was obfuscating when he said all phones suffer from the same issue. All phones can and do lose signal if the antenna's sensitive area is blocked by the hand - they lose a few db. The two iphone antennae are jumpered together by the users skin/sweat/oils, causing a dramatice 20-24db drop. This was not duplicated in any other phone tested This issue is unique among current smartphones.
Just because the phone sells, doesn't mean Steve was correct. The Backstreet Boys sold millions of albums - 'nuff said. Many (not all) consumers purchase based on style over substance. I have to do the car shopping in my family, because my wife would buy a car based solely on the color and design. She wouldn't care to look into reliability, economy, warranty. It's pretty - take my money.
The iPhone is very pretty. It's also low maintenance. It also happens to do many things very well. It also has in it's history had several issues, which Apple fanboys vehemently defend, and Apple itself lies about. This antenna issue is just the latest case. It's a shame that so many are willing to let Apple get away with whatever they choose.
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2010The iphone has a component tv out, which is one of the best output connection available, secon... morecomponent tv out is nice, but even really cheap phones have it
hdmi is needed if you have 720p videos.
i meant video calls, not voice. sorry about that...
and no it doesnt have multitasking. multitasking is the ability to run applications simultaneously. not suspend one while the other one is running. that is NOT multitasking. nor is playing music in background
I agree with P|am
NO ISSUES GUYS
Any issue is either poorly cleaned hands,
But recommend low salt cleaners, and those free from oxides
Retest holding it properly, step 2
Should get there hand checked for been conductive by a doctor,
some reasons are:
Having high sodium diet could cause Capacitive skin valves, so check your diet out first before you blame the so called Antenna issue.
Incorrect skin contact values can cause issues.
Trying a short term sodium free diet can give results in as little
as 14hrs. Another cause is high Sweat gland issues, best visit a doctor.Cover the many options available to reduce your (conductivity/ness)
Check it out:-
This issue is so bad!!!
Its called good business, and if Apple copied Nokia/samsung then how come they didnt release a successful touchscreen phone until a year after Apple did? Why werent they first with pinch and zoom? And multi touch that worked. And accelerometer use (N95 copied this) and proximity sensor? And tje whole design of the phone has been copied many many times.
So shut up fanboys
