If only steve jobs had stopped using his nokia and actually used an iphone, we would not have had this problem
nokia market shares will certainly go up once the n8 hits the market and meego phone is shipped
need i to add n8 variant? Chaeper but decent spec
i wonder if there is e series touch announced at nokia world? E9? X9 c9
Meego phone confirmed n9
meego talet, i believe it is true
Please don't ignore the other bugs. Let me make a short list for you:
-inverted volume buttons
-sim card failure issues
-proximity sensor stops working
and MANY MANY more: http://tiny.cc/TheiPhoneFever
In my opinion it's simply a design error, nothing more nothing less. And Apple should correct this asap and change production immediately. As it's shown in Apple's own ads, the natural way to hold a phone for a right handed person is in fact with his/her left hand and use the right to input commands.
Furthermore, design should have had avoided critical locations of the antenna such the one actually chosen.
In conclusion: an Apple's big mistake and fault. This time they went wrong.

Get a real one my friend, Nokia makes some of the toughest pone out there, incredibly durable and practical..
yeah but nokia phones break every other week. bet you have an n series too
Is this another item to be added to Instruction Manual,How to Hold your mobile,you hold the mobile the best way you can ,but if the Antena as been put in the wrong place,Whos fault is it,Why didn"t Apple test the iPhone 4 an the different ways people will hold the mobile an place the antena away from the blocking spot an to stop calls being lost,just shows they never ran a test at all,an its Apples fault not the Customer who as bought the iPhone
Cell phone i got thought 27 of them and a Satellite Phone.
Iphone I phone, Bad signal This is worse than Samsung A706. what's Next. let's all go back to Nokia or Motorola buy the phones.
[deleted post]It's bulkiness can be seen as a huge flaw to someone who wants a smaller pocket friendly phone. That & the fact that it took a firmware update to allow the phone to be used in portrait mode as per every other phone on the market - so day one it wasn't perfect.
I love nokia phones & have had quite a number of them since the N95. & my current work phone is an E52 - brilliant phone with amazing battery life
I'm not slating the N900 don't get me wrong. What I'm saying is that each phone has points that some people will love & others won't. But I don't understand the descent into hatred. If you don't like the phone don't buy it. But surely people have better things to do with their lives than to spout vitriol about a phone that, judging by the posts, they don't own, nor have they ever owned...
'Gripping ANY mobile phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas. This is a FACT of life for EVERY wireless phone'
Really! i've had no problems like that with my 3GS, Nokia, SE and motos.
[deleted post]I can vouch for that lol the micro usb plot i comes off easily and that's it
I'm not sure I get this Iphone hater thing at all really.
In the last 18 months I've owned;
HTC Touch HD - beautiful phone but lots of flaws & very laggy & slow..
Nokia N97 - powerhouse of a phone but what is with the symbian memory split - only 50Mb of 32Gb available to the C memory & no matter if you install all apps to E memory it still takes up a bit of the precious 50mb which all too soon stops the phone from working (low memory/out of memory messages).
& lately the HTC Legend - I love this phone - stunning design & compared to the Touch HD it's mega fast. HOWEVER - all those apps in the market & I only have 150Mb to install them - I'm down to 80Mb now & have to keep deleting apps to install more so's not to run out of memory
My point? - All phones have flaws - & I bought the missus an Iphone 3GS as she wanted a smartphone but thought the others would be too complex for day to day use. The Iphone is perfect for her needs & I must say the graphics on the apps are stunning.
All phones have downsides - if you want a phone with a radio - buy a phone with a radio.
If bluetooth connectivity is your main priority - get a phone with excellent bluetooth. Don't sit & whine about another phone that doesn't have what you want on it - just don't buy it. At the end of the day it's just a phone - it's not like it went out & mugged your granny.....
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2010I'm not denying that there's an issue. I'm just saying that the media is blowing it out of pr... moreYes, you are right in a way... Non owners are more sad.
But you see, the non owners were the potential owners who wanted the set later on after release.
They are sad it got screwed up, and more so, because Apple are not rectifying it, but publishing useless statements...
Instead of this, if they get Samsung Wave, almost all of their needs are met at prices that are a fraction...
Who will justify that injustice to existing owners, even though they might not complain openly?

Or perhaps I'll use a rubber condom so the super high strength materials don't crack on me x( -30 times harder than plastic they've said. PLASTIC DOESN'T CRACK!
Oh wait... it also scratches...
But geez louise that's not all! they haven't changed almost anything to the OS. FOLDERS!? is that all!?
Look what's missing: http://goo.gl/OkAB
iPhone 4 is not only an almost smartphone but also an almost phone, because phones don't loose their signal completley when you touch them.
Have you read about the inverted volume buttons? NO QUALITY CHECK AT ALL!
[deleted post]I'm not denying that there's an issue. I'm just saying that the media is blowing it out of proportions. The issue can obviously and easily be avoided. It does not disable the iphone at all. As I have said, the iphone4 offers more bars and better call quality than the 3gs. So why should we complain? It's funny that non iphone users complain and are more upset than iphone4 owners.
I'm sorry, but I have to say this:
This is complete bullshit from Apple.
What? Do you think such a lousy excuse is enough? Even your ads show it holding it that way. And I hold my 3GS the same way too. Do you think only a few people holds it that way??
Do you think this will satisfy the hundreds of thousands of users who payed the heck out to get the phone they think its best for them? Hell, seeing the way its going, its not even being a proper phone!
This is the FIRST time I've seen a phone that needs to be held at a way that the manufacturer requests you to, and not the way your'e used to or normally do. Not even cheap china copies have this issue, and yet with this phone you can buy loads of those.
I actually wanted to order one of these, but, seeing that even such a basic phone feature is crippled in this latest iphone, I rather buy something else. Or at least until Apple fixes it before its too late..
