These phones definately have a reciever problem with signal strength especially on the move. My husband is a lorry driver and he loses the signal a lot and the phone hangs. It also is weak near to the coast. It also takes longer to connect to the internet than my old Nokia 7373!
Apple is again making fool of common people...the update only show dummy full signals on device display and that is why calls are dropped. The hardware issue is not solvable like this and why they did is to keep the irrated customers calm and meanwhile they will make changes in their new production units by either altering the design or updating the inbuilt attenas....i am surprised why people are happy after buying such expensive faulty handset :-)))
sitcoms, 17 Jul 20100.55%? how many are the total iphone4 users? lets say 3 million,
so then 16,500 have complain... more0.55% my ass! Why do you people keep beleiving this nonsense. Anyone with any common sense can see that Apple are lying as usual and doing their cover up.
The fact that this has a compnay the size of Apple so worried and nervous that it's CEO comes out of hiding to have a offical "excuse" conference just for 0.55% of the users, that's pure nonsense.
I saw on Foxnews that AT&T stores reported that it's affected over 41% of their iPhone 4 customers.
It's so bad that Apple stock has been diving downwards for the second week in row, and it took a big plunge today agaian and people are loosing millions on Apple stock.
It went up a fraction of a point when the update was released, bit i also wrote yesterday to wait until people have updated and see that they are being screwed again, then Apple stock will fall again.
Bottom line, a company the size of Apple does not go down like a broken submarine in the stockmarket if only 0.55% are affected!? Anyone one with common sense can smell bulls*it from a mile away, the question is, can you?

... moreLOL.. Do you think people are st*pid?! You are confusing us with iApples. Nobody buys that. Nokia has a excellent record for good reception and and call quality. Why don't you just check out revies on GSM arena now that u are here.
What middleschhol grade are you in? You do realize that those are a couple hard searched vidos with different users using different Nokia phones. It means that those are single faulty units or that hose 6 people tampered with them to maek some sort of desperate point, just like u.
Come back with your nonsense when on single phone model has over 100 000 videos with the same problem posted all over the web like from different users as well as techsites and news. You know that big bright middle finger pointing straight at you iPhone users from every techsites, news and forum in the world, yes that one.

Andreas Porticali, 16 Jul 2010The new update is great, 5 bars full signal even in the low signal areas or previously no sign... moreI disagree it just tricks u by showing u thicker signal bars, now u never know ur true signal range.
And about ur theory about the hardware warming up to become stable and more effective, that's total bullshit. Its not a diesel truck nor its rubber tires.
In technology, motherboards and micro chip sets, and other hardware found in most devices perform much better when they cool down rather than heating up, and that's a fact bug brain.
Ur being brain washed. Try to research before commenting.

But it's fun to bait the mobile fanboys who have utter hatred for the iphone. You cannot deny that the iphone has changed things in the mobile industry.
I went from multiple Nokia devices with poor support and bugs and thought "well, i refuse to be a Nbeta tester, and decided to try the iphone. Well, I'm convinced now that, apart from Android phones, the iphone is MUCH better than Nokia's devices in that it is better for the casual cool user, not the geek.
Nokia should have embraced Android, instead it labours on with the tired Symbian format.
