This will not deter me from buying it.... I don't hold my phone that way to begin with...

June 26, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermatthew

I have mine and it went from box to case and soon
It will go into an otterbox.

June 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOverkill

I agree with what ty is saying its not that bad of an issue and it is a brand new device so apple will be able to fix it when they make more iPhone 4's. Also this is just like the Xbox 360, lots of people had the red rings when it first came out and now rarely anyone has that problem anymore.

June 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMoe

Hey Ty, No I do not think this is a serious problem and I can confirm the case will fix it. The only think I am concerned about is "the fix". I have had a few resources tell me Apple is releasing a update to fix this problem as soon as monday, because this is a problem from iOS 4, not just the iPhone 4. There are rumors that the iPhone 3gS is having a similiar problem. I cannot confirm the update of 4.0.1 or the iPhone 3gS problem either, but I believe that this is only an iPhone 4 problem since it is concerning the metal band around the phone. I just wonder if they can fix it or if they will fix it. I will post something as soon as I find out about 4.0.1. Follow me on twitter.com/phonegenius02

Ty, How you doing...your videos are very good by the way, so thanks for sharing.....but I was wondering when the jailbreak for this device comes out i.e. the iPhone 4 jailbreak. Is it even in progress, and can the iPhone 4 be jail broken?

I would appreciate a response at any time.

Thanks,

Louy

I figured this was gonna be a slight problem when I seen the presentation and they were selling the bumper with it! I was like why is he selling a cover for only the sides of the phone? It doesn't even cover the back! lol

June 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTromain

Static is what you mean

June 27, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjvrk

Not only the prob with the antenna is a fail … the iOS4 update sucks on 3G iphones cause it took more time to open or show "neat" transitions … it's more a time waster. my next mobile wouldn't be an apple.

June 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRene

Everyone complains about apples products, but every cell phone provider has problems. The antenna issue is not a problem, a case with fix this. Besides you have an iphone and don't use a case, then there is seriously something wrong with you, no one wants to mess up their phone. A word of advice, don't update an iphone 3g to ios4, it will slow the device down, and even crash it from time to time.

June 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChris

I have not bought the new 4G yet. I think I will wait until apple gets it figured out.

June 28, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter509 Media

All right I received my Bumper from apple today and the difference is immediately noticed. My phone has mostly full bars now and I've had not had a reception issue since the bumper went in. The investment for the bumper from apple is totally worth it. Whoever is having reception issues buy the bumper from apple, you won't be disappointed.

It's not a big deal but the answer from Steve Jobs bother me because this is not a real answer "Don't hold your phone like that" come on... it's a phone you don't get to tell me how to hold it or to cover it... I'm sure that IPhone 5 will have that fix, and this will not keep me from getting one :)

June 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRain Gigel

ITS NOT A HARDWARE ISSUE ITS A SOFTWARE ISSUE SO ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS WAIT FOR THE NEW FIRMWARE TO COME OUT! SO YOUR RECEPTION NEVER ACTUALLY DROPS…BUT THE PHONE THINKS IT DROPPS!

Hi there ty
For starter ive got the iphone 3g and 3gs and my 3gs is factory unlocked but im facing a huge problem with the signal i do have a full bar for the service but sometimes when somebody trys to call they get that i cant be reached so i couldnt figure out the problem ive tried 3sims and i do have the same problem i was hoping that the iphone 4 would not have any service issue but i dont know about getting one unless they fix it so any ideas on where could the problem be from thank for ur great info ty

July 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmr

Oh and forgot to say that texts takes a long time to be recived also. And dont think its a software problem ive tried all softwares and the problem is the same not to say that the new ios 4 have a lot of bugs i know we are talking about the service issue but i couldnt help myself not to say that hope they will get things fixed soon

July 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmr

Ok i never had this problem with my phone. But a friend of mine did. he put a case on $25 bestbuy. and it worked fine. I tried to get my phone to drop signal it does not any way I hold it. Guess I got lucky

July 8, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKeith

Apple wants to draw a line under the problems with reception problems with the new iphone4. From October there will be no more buyers for all the smartphone free sleeves to Apple announced at the lats weekend. I never had these problems with my phone :-(

September 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTill

it dont matter how u hold it.. with my iphone 3g i used to get full service in my room now i only get 2 fuckin bars and i can barley make a fucking call without it cutting out.. piece of shit antenna

September 29, 2010 | Unregistered Commenternick

i got rid of my iphone 3GS to upgrade to the iphone 4 but its a dumb move ! recepption issues are evident, i used to have srong signal with my 3GS in my place where globe signal was never a problem ..ever! now i have to use my nokia freaking fone inside my room by putting back my sim and bringing it bact to its standard fucking size and use it for the other fone then switch it back to my iphone 4 by making it a micro sim when i go out...Yah IN BUILDING reception with the iphne 4 Fucking SUCKS!!!!
