Are you putting your hand over the bottom end of the phone? That's where the antenna is, so if you're in a moderate to weak signal area, you can easily drop the signal to zero with your hand. I find I can force my phone to drop down from 3G to GSM completely by putting it next to my head, sometimes.
So much for Apple being the only company having this issue.

The antennagate on the iphone only happens at places where there'a a weak signal. The signal drop varies from place to place depending on the signal strength. In places where there's strong signal, the bars stay full even when you grip that black strip. Stop exaggerating.

You don't have to squeeze the device for it to lose signal. A regular grip like on that video should do it. The person was not squeezing the phone at all. He was simply holding it.

Fact is other smartphones might lose a bar or two if you completely cover the entire phone with your hands but your expensive piece of garbage iphone4 that your puppet master Steve Jobs spoonfed to you will drop a call from merely being touched. Apple got served, how does it taste?

You're saying people will squeeze their samsung like that while talking on it? Go watch the video first before you decide to open your big mouth bud.
apple just got smashed lol okay in all seriousness i actually like the response all the companies are making
are you serious???
whatever is in that website..if it is serious..the media would have done thier job...
it has been amlost 8 months...
obviously its not a GRAVE AS APPLE IPHONE4...
cant believe you would even post that..IRRELEVENT...like iphone4.. like your post..like you :D LOL!!!!
well all should buy the phone they desire,but the fact is that Mr. Steve was an ass to this,and he gets what he asked for.I'm not saying ip4 is not a good phone(even that played with it and im not impressed),but since is such a expensive device free cases is not the solution but to replace with a new made device that does not have that problem,Don't know how you people can stand that,you should ask for your rights! that's the thing! it's a damn phone and should keep a call not to drop it!,it's easy as that! so stop accepting Apple bullshit and force them to remake your phone!

How is the way they hold the other phones unnatural? They gripped the other phones exactly where one would grip it while on a call.
Bringing up a fact among all phones is not slander. Don't be silly. The media singled out the ip4. Do you know what that means. It's like you and 10 other people all did the same error and only you got in trouble for it while the rest are just walking around freely as if they're innocent. Do you think that's fair?
I agree that the ip4's weak spot is more vulnerable than the rest, but it does not exempt the others from having the same issue. The media should not single out the ip4.
It is the media that keeps on posting these articles. Not ip4 users, and not Apple. It is not fair for anyone to exaggerate on an issue that doesn't hugely affect the users at all. Saying that the ip4 cannot make and receive calls is big lie.

That's the only way for people to know if this issue is indeed significant or not. I have not experienced a single dropped call on my ip4. All calls dropped on my xperia, but not on my ip4 :)
So go ahead return your ip4 immediately :) That is if you really have one, lol.

Even this didn't get the job and then one needed to go into the setting and configure for only 3G operation (a degree of flexibility unavailable to apples mobile phones) disabling the 2G antenna which had been engineered to Not drop calls in the vast majiroty of situations.
This kind of test has zero value other than slandering the competition. the arrogance of such behavior is amazing. This is not a civil suite where you are trying to confuse the jury. Some of your audience understand electromagnetic wave propagation. you can't eliminate them from the jury pool...
The Iphone 4's reception is not like other phones. one is required to not touch the phone with ones skin in certain places if ones signal is weak. no other phone is that sensitive to a simple touch.
we'll stop pointing this out when you stop slandering other manufactures. if you shut up this will blow over. otherwise it will continue.
The issue is not the dropping of signal but that of calls! The Ip4 does drop calls, I know as I have one and I had 2 dropped calls this morning although it has not happened before. I was not death gripping the phone.
Tried this with my Xperia X10 and could not get the signal to drop never mind drop a call. Point is I love both phones, especially since the mini software upgrade to X10 which has improved battery life to a couple of days.
My phones, my choice as I enjoy the variety. BTW, only got dropped calls since the recent IP4 software upgrade to re-calculate the signal bars!!

And how did Apple badmouth their competitors? Is it badmouthing when you tell the truth about all phones having weak spots? What do you want Apple do do then? Just admit to all the media attacks that the ip4 is the only phone that has antennagate when they know very well that the whole mobile industry is faced with this challenge? That is not fair either. Apple is not blaming anyone for this issue. They only want the media to be fair not to single out the ip4 on a common issue among phones.
