it`s fair to say that all phones will lose signal at somepoint, i`m an iphone 3gs user, and still think that the iphone 4 design is flawed. i think apple should fess up, refund/replace all iphone 4 after a redesign. if a car company messes up its models there would be hell to pay, however the apple `fanboys` seem to think that `oh it apple, so i dont mind`.

I have to laugh, lets VIDEO calling over the wifi, nah no thanks I have a sim card to that for me with my handset. Seriously though all the manufacturers are laughing at this and many other non Apple users due to the massive f*** up!!! Nice try and good defence but reality is your phone is an epic failure and what will be down as the biggest flop in cellphone history. I await for the recalls.......... haha Greedy Apple with their clever marketing and hurting customers. Im going to grab myself an N8 now thats what I call a multimedia machine and a phone!!! hahaha

But the story here is Apple accusing other mobile phone companies that they have reception issues, which is uncalled for. Isn't it enough to say "Yes, we have reception problem and we're sorry for that." but Apple go to great length and start to show the other phones reception flaw.
I can't help but laugh on this quote by you:
"It's display, it's camera, it's processor, it's ram, gyroscope integration, facetime, and other features have pretty much left competitors in the dust."
Maybe you've been under a rock or perhaps mobile phone news for you is only Apple iPhone. Please do your research before claiming that iPhone are superior with such feature. And FaceTime, are you kidding me?! Such feature is already available in most 3G phones and they are called Videoconferencing and other phones can do that with just 3G line.
Apple has put a hidden button somewhere on the left side of iphone 4. once you touch it, it turns the phone into flight mode. an energy saving innovation.

The iphone4 is still a great success. Nice try though :)

While the media won't leave the iphone4 alone because, look at all the attention they're getting? The media is definitely making a lot of revenues from ads just by exaggerating and sensationalizing an otherwise insignificant issue common to all cellphones.
This is absurd..
Apple, if you keep doing this bullcrap, people are going to be ASHAMED to be owning an iphone soon.
People will be going like : "Oh the iphone? It can't even be a phone properly and the company is so snobbish bla bla bla..."
I know Apple has been a bit over lately but this antennagate conference is wayy too much. Such a CHILDISH move from a professional company. =(
Why couldn't you just admit the phone has a problem? Why not just recall the phones and fix them? It might hit your profits, but it wont destroy your very future as a phone manufacturer like you are doing right now Apple..
When this news gets into world news, you are in deep shiit apple..
[deleted post]Well iphone4 users aren't complaining of dropped calls either, so why are non-iphone users and the media making all these exaggerations? It is not for Apple either. So it's just right that Apple should drag everyone who are facing the same antennagate challenges.
You're nothing but a jealous hater.
[deleted post]There's nothing for SJ to be sorry about. Users love their iphones. It's only the media and non-iphone users who are making a big deal of an issue that does't even bother iphone4 users.

So why is the media and non-iphone users whining about it? You knoe why? It's because there's nothing really left for anyone to pick on the iphone about. It's display, it's camera, it's processor, it's ram, gyroscope integration, facetime, and other features have pretty much left competitors in the dust. So that's why they hold on to the death grip issue even when the users don't have an issue with it.
Should have announced that's as a function button instead...
the innovative VoiceVoid feature.

Why not during the 1st Generation of iPhone, boast their excellent reception call and bash how fake their competitors reception? Oh wait, Apple just did during the unveiling of iPhone 4 with their breakthrough and innovative but yet FLAWED design for their antenna.
You have not heard any outrage from other users who used Samsung, RIM, Motorola, Nokia etc. about reception issue because the simple answer is, there wasn't any or if there's any, the numbers was so small, which can be due to some faulty devices.
If Apple are boasting that their antenna are superior but yet it doesn't deliver a good reception, admit it! Apple are very good in twisting words, making themselves the victim instead of the problem creator. Apple, stop fooling your consumers!
Oh and I'm not one of Apple users because I don't fall for their tricks. I don't mind Apple Operating System softwares but too bad, it needs to come with their expensive hardware.
Even the 50$ Chinese featured phones can let you talk with your friends hours after hours without any drop but not the over priced iPhone (actually its just a iPod......lol)
Any of you remember that GTA4 iFruit iPhone parody? Well let me refresh your memory:
The New iFruit Phone:
No Storage Capacity
Apple hit the spot on the "No reception" spec with the iPhone 4 hahahah, talk about a joke coming to life :D
what i can say is iph apps developers see big $$ so they make nice apps.
apple use nice materials and workmanship in their products (so they charge big $$).
Other than that?? Apple sux man yeah! its so true!
