Hey everyone, I'm from Malaysia and I'm planning to get an iPhone 4 when it comes out here.
But before i do that i need to know about the reception problem thingy lol. Is it that only AT&T users face this problem? Cause AT&T is from the US right? So we definitely don't have it here.
& so does this mean if i purchase the phone here i won't face the reception problem?
I have had the iPhone 4 for 4 days in the Telstra network in Australia. Using the death grip the worst I get is losing 1 bar when reception is weak. I have never dropped a call. The ios 4.01 works better than ios 4.0. I think the main problem in the US is AT&T. In oz we have Telstra optus three virgin vodaphone plus we can buy unlocked outright from apple (which I did)
Needed persuasion in purchasing i phone 4.. Pls tell me more about i phone.. And thanks for i phone4 user replied..
but i need more confidents and prove to make sure iphone 4 would'nt disappointed me.. I am confus thoug..
hey guys, iphone4 is better or 3gs? Im planning to have either one of it.. And when i made my decision in purchasing iphone4,someone turn me off by saying iphone4 lagging..hmm, guys..any comment? Thanks .or maybe should prefer blackberry instead of apple?
Steve, 03 Aug 2010Wow I guess this is another example of "better on paper does not mean better in reality&q... morefor now galaxy is best for low cost and worth for money s the phone comes with more better specifications but that will be done only by samsung first not the apple remember that
now certainly the android under built of gingerbread which comes with 26 million colours then lets c wat apple does now froyo is more better than apple os check out the promo video here of froyo tells the story
Usman, 03 Aug 2010This is obvious sign that the problem is with AT&T in US...hrdly any complaints from peopl... moreits already avail in india nearly 50,000 rs normally all signal will be week in india now this iphone 4...u can buy 2 galaxy s for this hmmmm.....
pls apple make the iphone to come with the video how to hold apple iphone 4? that will be great....
Now that there is a jailbreak the iphone 4 will continue to be the best and we will see it getting better.
i still think even with the slating this phone has received it is still the best phone on the market.

... moreWow I guess this is another example of "better on paper does not mean better in reality"! Yes, it appears that the Samsung Galaxy S is the superior phone when looking at purely the specs. And if you want to go just by the numbers, then it would be bette to buy the Galaxy. But you should never go purely by numbers because, remember, in a few months another phone will come around with even better specs!
Keeping that in mind, I got the iPhone 4 and I think it's amazing. Yes, it may be slightly inferior when looking at certain configurations, but as the person below said, the user experience cannot be matched at the moment.
This is obvious sign that the problem is with AT&T in US...hrdly any complaints from people in UK, canada, singapore, germany, australia and elsewhere. Why there is only one iphone carrier in US? And did you know that unlocked iphone is not even available in US to buy, but you can buy it from in Apple in UK or Canada? Seems pretty "un-American" to me!
I am very happy to hear that people around the world are not facing the reception problem with iphone 4. i will buy it when it comes out in india...hopefully by november or december i will buy it

samsung galaxy s ... moreTo iphone4 user: You actually made a great comparison between the two phones. It is important to know the facts before you purchase any phone. But your review (just like official reviews with specs/configuration info) leaves out the user experience. I wish I did more research before buying the Galaxy S. Overall, the satisfaction you get when using the iPhone 4 is higher..i know because my best friend bought an iPhone 4 and believe me, using that phone is so much better. It's hard to pin point the reason. It could be the overall speed, the iPhone 4 is snappier and flows better without any lag. It could be the OS..downloading from the Apple app store is a much better experience than using Android. Plus the Apple OS just seems to work better than Android...Android is cool, but it still seems a little underdeveloped when compared to iOS.
and belive it or not, I find the call quality and reception on my friend's iphone 4 better than my Galaxy S! OK. maybe the reception is equal, but the call quality is definitely better on the iphone! Strange...

Bad Apple ,
I am also using Galaxy S , and Wave Bada OS.
Good phone. I agreed .And also using N97 mini. I am hardcore phone user. I used many models and will give fair rating to these model.
Anyway I forget to tell you that I am a left hander.
Still no problem with the signal.
As I mentioned again , you base on the expert opinion.
I base on the actual live set.
now i up my bargain. $2000/- if signal drop to zero. and you pay me $1000/- only if no zero dropped in signal. U can bring in the expert from the german too
...really need cash to get another set leh....
as I say easy money

Yeah! Whole world is lying. Everybody but you of course.
It must be world wide plotting against iPhone4 and you?
Bad Apple, 03 Aug 2010thanks dude, I have 3GS and Galaxy S, and that is why I said always I am not a hater, but I am... moreHey Bad Apple thnx for the reply mate. Yes I tried my best to hold it in the left hand, gripping the bottom left corner and nothing! I actually was disappointed at the time because I wanted to show people the problem haha..:)
Again maybe i'm just lucky! And you're right Steve Jobs acted like an ass with the initial "response" by Apple! But now I think Apple have a good solution with the free case and all. I mean, the case solves the problem 100% and in my opinion, people should use a case anyway for safety. For me, at least, I won't be using the case becaue I love the way the iPHone 4 looks.
Mate, I strongly suggest you upgrade from the 3gs to the iphone 4...trust me you won't regret it! Though congrats on your purchase of the Galaxy S, that's a mighty fine phone too! :)
[deleted post]thanks dude, I have 3GS and Galaxy S, and that is why I said always I am not a hater, but I am moving well away from iphone since the statement from steve jobs, regarding the iphone4, teaching people how to hold their phone, that was an insult to all iphone users with some intelligence and pride,
My question is have you tried to hold your phone with left hand and see how your signal like? almost without any expection the signal drops down to zero.
beside many reports drop calls and bad reception, have many friends who experienced it and they hate it.
anyway good luck and happy phone calls..!
