Good try Apple but you really screwed up this time. You should stick to improving the Macs which are the best computer hardware and software in the world IMHO.
Lets just face it. IP4 is just an iPod Touch with the reception problems. Its not a phone at all. Why do people buy Mobile Phones? To make calls right? If you cant make calls or get really bad reception that calls get disconnected than its not even in the Mobile Phones category. Even a China Brand phone is better. Not that China brands are not good.
Mobile phone is a telephone with access to a cellular radio system so it can be used over a wide area, without a physical connection to a network.
iphonefan, 13 Jul 2010On re-testing, Consumer Reports now Retracts iPhone 4 Negative Recommendation 1 hr ago.
&qu... moreoh really !!! why don't you check again
We have been waiting the update which we hope to fix the antenna problem. Do you have an idea when will it be?
All said and done why is the rating on gsmarena itself is 6.8 for the IP4. Can someone explain that? Are we to assume that there are more people who find the IP4 useless than those who do? Strange. IP4 buyers>>> no one says dont buy,,,stop harping on the superiority of the product over others. Samsung Nokia Apple,,,remember all the bloody parts and circuits get manufactured in china or taiwan.And tellus honestly how many people would actually buy an IP4 without contract,,across the world. Its only affordable with a contract.The IP4 is comparable to a VERTU,,just like designer cloths on a fat lady (on offence ladies..pls). Maybe Jobs shud also start a concierge service where people with no reception can call and send messages to people they want to connect to.....lol..sorry abt that cudnt resist.

Anonymous, 13 Jul 2010call Consumer Reports to find for your self! thank u!Awesome, I knew they made a mistake about the antenna
in the review as itwasn't an issue.
Just hold it right, like you hold your hair drier.
If your dumb and hold the hot end and get burned that's your fault, hold the phone silly you loose calls,
hold it right, never an issue that's why iphone4 was voted best in the world.
Hey all haters, I just review Consumer Reports ratings on iphone4 76 that highest of all the phone they test. htc evo ratings 74, nexus one 72, htc hd2 71. LONG LIVE THE KING IPHONE 4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
STEVE has made a fool of everyone who have bought this wonder-phone without signal.....It fails to deliver the most primary need of making a decent phone call.....
It's great isn't it , you can't call STEVE with a i-phone4.......LOL
Please keep voting 1 since you cant hold this phone normally without it affecting the reception bars.Everyone holds a cell phone from the bottom left or right.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2010Catch up on what? On features that doesn't really make a difference? Htc does not even have ... moreConsumer Reports, America’s trusted source of product reviews, said it would not recommend the iPhone 4 because of a hardware flaw with its antenna that sometimes resulted in dropped calls.
Again people are not listening.
Stop holding it in the corner and use it like a normal phone.Marking out like Apple have a problem.
There is a firmware releasing soon for people that can't hold it right or follow simple instructions.

xxxxxx , 13 Jul 2010you just can't face the fact that your iphone 4 could not catch up with the htc evo4, htc hd2,... moreCatch up on what? On features that doesn't really make a difference? Htc does not even have their own OS, and has to depend on google and microsoft for their OS. Nokia has pretty much lost their market share to Apple, RIM, and Android in the high end smartphone category. Samsung's bada did not really take off. Blackberry has very limited apps, inferior music player, inferior camera and inferior touchscreen. So I think you are wrong in saying that Apple couldn't catch up when Apple pretty much surpassed everyone, even Microsoft. So keep living in your world of denial.
same old rubbish phone in a new shiny case. iphone users don't even noticed that mr. jobs sold them damaged goods.
