this is stupidity you can't actually tell me how to hold my mobile phone apple has failed and i don't expect a serious mobile phone user to buy a phone which has poor signal reception if just slightly not held the right way,its stupid this is a touch screen phone and you have to have freedom on holding it so that you can easily make the most of your device like in potrait and landscape mode. I didn't expect apple to come out with such a crappy device with so many errors and faults and yet reply to its users with arrogance that the technology they decided to use is just plain dumb. We need phones which are reliable in basic tasks such as calls and signal reception. Apple fails and expect nokia or htc or even s.e to really beat iphone if they are to release a really top notch device. This is coming from a loyal apple iphone user who used iphone 2g,3g,3gs i doubt if i'll go for 4
Im now using my NOKIA N900 to wrote my comment here on Gsmarena..
And listen to my favourite rock music..reply my friend Smses..MSN is running with YouTube..and view the latest news FIFA World Cup of results on web..
I can put 27 Widgets (Email,IM,Msn,mus!c player,Facebook etc..)on 4 Home screens with different wallpaper..
I n0t show off with my phone..
But im GLAD to have one in my hand..^^
"Gripping any mobile phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance..." Any? WTF I gripped my cellphone really tightly and I still get good reception! Is Steve Jobs trying to shape the mobile technology backward?!!
BrianAW, 25 Jun 2010NOKIA doesnt matt3r with app|e iphone.. Do you think NOKIA N8 is the only one can bit down ... moreThe n8's symbian^3 had already been reviewed. And believe me, it was not a good one. And it has flaws way more annoying than this. But no one would really care. Why? No one really expects perfection from symbian the way people do from the iphone.
Looks like the iPhone 4 has a basic construction fault and Apple discovered it too late, so they came up with that bumper case to paper it over. One the one hand this is really poor, especially for a handset that claims to be the Jesus phone and costs twice as much as other high-end phones (and its "special" tariffs cost more too). On the other hand most people keep their phones in a case to protect it anyway, so not a deal breaker, but still either really poor design or a cynical money-making scheme to sell more cases.

Basically apple has paid off most big sites to shut up.
The os is still in what any sane mind would consider experimental with tons of features not working.
The reason why iphone haters jump into this issue like it's the worst thing that happened to mankind is, the iphone is the closest thing to perfection. There's almost nothing wrong or bad you can say about this phone. So now that they found something, they make such a big deal of it as if there are tons of phones out there that work perfectly.
Look again haters. People still flock at the Apple stores to get their iphones. Just proves that the iphone still has bigger things to offer that way outshines minor quibbles.
[deleted post]I'll guess you did take the hint by why you shouldn't take the iPhone 4 with you to the opera house :-) ?.
In case you didn't. You know like screaming very high + glass?. You know that glass can crack it self if the screaming is noisy enough.

phyne, 25 Jun 2010what's this? Steve Jobs had failed to "perfect" his "perfect" phone by for... moreNo, I believe Jobs doesn't even know the basics. He picked up all the sets and seen no antena is outside the set so he ordered his people to make the antenna outside and make it a sales pitch. Bingo, it goes right in his face.

Here's the thing. An issue was identified. Apple replies as to how that issue can be avoided. Take it, or leave it.
When I bought my Lexus ES350, people were complaining about poor rear visibility. What was Lexus' advise? Get the model with the rear camera. And I did because I liked the car at that time.
For every purchase we make, there's always going to be a degree of compromise. Do you really expect the iphone to be free from issues?
Lol..... iphone has taken it to another level. What? Hold me in the right way. At this rate we might have to buy gloves top handle iPhones.
Bricked, 25 Jun 2010It will still sell better than the N8. Mark my words. Yes it is, because the world is full of fools, with holes in brains, or brain in hole? Either way they will take it, call it a SUPERBest phone and will be an a$$ for every other brand, real brands.
Who are you to tell me how to hold my phone or use a case compulsorily. Common this is just a design fault.

I know I am filthy rich.
When you become rich, you will realise that small things, small people, people of no value dont matter to you.
You can do or make anything you want and the number of stupid happy people will shout louder than the number of clever and rightfully displeased people.
Think retina display. What does the word retina mean? Coupled with display. Its just fancy phonics to describe our screen. It is no better than screens as of late on most phones. But you and I both know, dumb people will eat into this like doughnuts.
Think facetime. Instead of video calling we call it facetime. Again, dumb people think this is all new.
There are people out there who actually believe before the iPhone no touch phones existed. Ha! Fools.
I make phones for dumb people and these phones sell like hot shit. That tells us there are way more stupid people on this planet. The government are succeeding.
When you become as successful as me, you dont need to worry about signal being lost, neither do you admit you are wrong. I hold no reponsibility for design flaws. Nothing is wrong with my device.
We also decided to go for the cheaper, cost effective Gorrila glass instead of the more durable Godzilla glass. People are like Gorrilla's anyway, they have no life and americans especially are used to sitting and playing with the iPhones.
After all this and more, dumb people will take no offence, nor will they mind the flaws, nor will they choose to believe that their precious Steve would say such ramblings. So feel free to post this anywhere and everywhere.
The iPhone is going to sell no matter how much you bash the phone. This is the power of marketing to stupid people.!
Enjoy our new iPhone and IOS 4

Yet we do not find it acceptable for the likes of bmw to break down easily. A phone is a different case and should not be compared to a car. If i was buying a phone, it has to be great at being a phone. I suppose the iphone is really good at apps so should be called iApps. Jobs reply was too friendly. "Just shut up and deal with it" would have been more appropriate.ifans would still think nothing of it.
