Guys Plz become chilled and read it :
when nokia n97 was released my friend brought it right on its first day and n97 was crappiest ever because my friend couldnt even lift phone calls from it because touch didnt work to lift phone call or green button didnt work so he sold it right after 4 days and purchased iphone after that. and now n97 after getting updates was fine (while everyone lost in thoughts that n97 screen and buttons are faulty but OS itself had problems before update)
every phone have problems during they release first
iphone 4 is not same as the before phones its completely different with same ruuning OS
so just be patient.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2010worst phone crappy camera color washed video recording antenna flaw and sells 1.7 mill... morethen i think only your peice is faulty one but other iphone 4s are perfect except signal problem
i bought 5800 last year and bought ipod touch 3rd generation 2 months back. i will sure upgrade it to iphone
i loved ipod touch very much. i am waiting for apps to support multitasking and already some apps on my touch got updated and ready to multitask. may be i will purchase iphone 5 but not iphone 4 because i dont have anything to do with camera features on iphone 4 and i already have phone ofcourse and steve jobs said that normal eye cant see as many pixels as they are present on retina display during keynote
if we cant see all those 328 pixels on retina display (it doesn't make sense for me to upgrade right now :) having 3rd gen ipod touch with me which can do everything !!)
No solution from any of the 1.7 million people that bought the same phone? Can't believe I fell in line for this POS.. Now my friends are laughing on me.. This signal problem is really annoying. I think the best way to solve this is to have a refund.. Any suggestions, Guys?

My phone is having a bad signal ever since I got it 2 days ago.. Can anyone please help me? Are there any fixes for this? I called the shop and they said it's perfectly fine and I was holding it the wrong way.. What should I do? Can at least 1 of those 1.7 million people help me with this? I don't wanna buy any bumper case 'coz it will just ruin the look of the phone and I really wanna impress my friends.. Cheers!
more than half of them sold were bought by black market to be sold at higher price outside UK. i was on the line to buy one, i was offered £100 extra for me to buy 2 handstes for somebody else. this is just madness. i didnt do it, i left the line completely i said forget iphone, i stick with my hero, i am gld i did, my hero just got updated to Eclair it works much much better now (touch wood)
Software Update: Where is the damn software update to fix the antenna flaw in IPhone 4?
Lol!! Just dump the IPhone 4 and get the sophisticate Nokia N8.

You should take it back before you start experiencing the next fault that get's reported.
Pineapple , 29 Jun 2010Why do Nokia lovers keep coming on to iPhone disscussions and raving about Nokia??? Nobody he... moreYa u r right. I also noticed that Nokia fanboys always entered into the iPhone discussions and wrote against iPhone and advertising about their Nokia smartphones which are run by outdated Symbian OS. I rarely found Samsung, Htc or SE lovers to do that. Know why? Because those people knows that every people have their own point of view and necessity when they wants to buy a new phone, similarly every phone has its own target group. Thats why it is impossible to built a phone which will be liked by all people in the world. But Nokia fanboys thought that Nokia is the only one brand in the world and everybody should use only Nokia and nothing elso...lolzZ
