The signal does drop the moment you short the antennas. But the weird thing is, when you are in an area where there's good at&t signal, the bar does not drop at all and stays full however you hold the phone. So there must be a software glitch like Apple said there is. As for the death grip, that's a non issue for me because I bought a caae for my iphone as I always had even with my 3g and 3gs.
A bummer for me would be, I didn't want a case for the iphone4 because it's beautiful as it is without a case and I enjoy looking at it, but because of the death grip issue, I got a case. Althought the case that I got for it looks really nice on my iphone4.
I doubt if there's going to be a recall, but Apple should reimburse all iphone4 users with a $35 check to compensate them for having to buy a case. Because buying a case, although common for touchscreen phone users, should still be an option, not a neccessity which in the iphone4's case it is.

I did have a yellow streak on my iphone4. I scheduled a genius bar appointment a week later and got a replacement. Now I am totally happy with my iphone4. More happy than the 3gs. But why is it that there seems to be a lot of attack towards the iphone4 when it's actually a much better device than the 3gs? It's because it's the most successful iphone. Others can no longer compete with it, so a good strategy is to destroy through negative publicity.
[deleted post]Yes there is a problem, and for the thousand times, I am not denying it. But I am also telling the truth that those problems doesn't affect my overall experience to a point that I would return my iphone. If it does for you, then by all means return your iphone4 for a refund and go ahead look for a perfect phone out there.
Yes, I haven't used Apple products as long as you have. But I know that Apple products work for me much better than the others. If something better for me comes along, I'll switch. That's the awesome thing with freedom of choice. So why does a smart folk like you use Apple products when for you it seems to be plagued with issues?

Iphone4 antenna is very vulnerable to sweat and water and probably dirt.its more exposed then any other phone antenna I've seen.Its also placed in the worst spot where people normally hold their phones from the bottom side.Who holds their phone from the top, nobody cause it looks gay.
[deleted post]He has the iphone4 and mentioned he had the proximity issue the sending and receiving of text issue and the yellow glue and he used the word disappointed regarding these problems.Also something else he mentioned posting an opinion on here he had to go from potrait to landscape or something like that.

Hey buddy, there are enough sample photos out there from iphone4 reviews to show that the iphone4's LED flash can take decent photos even in total darkness. Make sure your finger doesn't cover the flash when you take a picture, lol.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2010HAHA none of them reported by comsumer reports,none in gsm or otherwises review and all appear... moreBut you see no one is denying the fact that the iphone4 has a vulnerable part that degrades reception when gripped. But it is also a fact that other devices have vulnerable spots as well.
But the crazy thing is. When it's the iphone, it becomes a major concern with the media. Why is that? Because it attracts readers.
There are other videos of other devices dropping signal bars when held the wrong way. And those videos came out even before this death grip issue came out, but the media didn't care.
And look at you. You're not even an iphone4 user, yet you constantly complain about it and constantly visit iphone forums. Why? It's called jealousy and hate. While for the media and websites, it's to attract readers to get high ratings and to get lots of clicks to get more money from advertisers because they know that Apple sells.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2010Good Job apple another class action law suit
http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-20010212-37.... moreThis class action lawsuit is ridiculous. As if only the iphone is the only phone out there that's exclusive to a carrier.
Should we file a class suit against the Droid for only supporting verizon's cdma? Lol.
I won't be surprised to learn that these silly lawsuits are paid for by Apple's competitors to give Apple bad publicity.

If you are not a customer, you shouldn't be complaining, and you have no business posting issues on Apple Support forums that you are not experiences. So of course your post will be deleted. It can mislead readers and discourage readers, which is exactly what haters are trying to do. They lie and pretend. Remember that fake Steve Jobs twitter account announcing a recall? Do you think that's valid? Well you probably don't because you hate Apple yourself, lol.

Your posts got deleted for obvious reasons. You're lying.
Haters are working very aggressively posting exaggerated issues and lies on every iphone/apple forum. You guys are not even iphone4 users. You have no valid reason to complain. So of course your comments will be deleted.
The phone is the greatest but the flash for the camera? What a joke! It's embarassing. I don't even use it. Ever. For anything. Better off postponing using the camera til the morning to get natural light cuz the LED is horribleeeeee!!!
Iphone4 without question is the best smartphone ever, Ok it's been questioned about the antenna problems but put that aside and there's nothing out there at the moment that comes close.
Check out the raging reviews in T3 and stuff magazine,, Iphone once again has set a huge benchmark for other h/sets to try and beat.
Bear in mind there's not even a h/set out there what can compete with the iphone 3gs so It's impossible for a h/set to take on the Iphone4, Maybe in 2 years or more :-)
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2010Hi Damien, So far multi tasking hasn't taxed my iPhone at all. However, I am always switch... moreI totally agree with you. I dont have any problem with Iphone 4 at New York city. Everytihg working perfect. I highly recommand to everyone
"Love it or hate it?"
Ok, now all ifans plz stop ignoring how good iphone 4 is.
Here are the problems that have come out with the iphone 4:
1). Yellow spot on Retina Display. Apple claimed that it was the best display ever on a mobile device. :)
2). Poor signal when ur hand is touching at the left corner of the iphone 4. Steve said it was the best design ever and the steel frame functioned as antenna to ensure the BEST SIGNAL. :)
3).Steve proclaimed the iphone 4 was covered with restistant glass which was 30 times harder than normal glass. But, as we can c in the video test by iFix n not to say about that, the iphon3 was like a junk. Or am i wrong? Maybe the guy who did the test dropped it in wrong way? :)
4). Proximity sensor doesn't work properly compared to the old 3gs, tested by gsmarenablog. :) Perhaps Steve was too hard on Foxconn employees, n then they made that 4 revenges :)
5).USB port got fired :
Wowwwwww! It's not just a problem, but a DANGEROUS game. Steve , what's wrong with u? U wanna kill us? NO, it's not a funny game, i'd say :)
Well,...... all ifans , do u enjoy the stories? :)How will u say about that? Thanks!
