On the other hand, if they knew about this issue, why didn't they place the antenna gap on the bottom of the phone or somewhere where there is no contact with either hand or fingers?

Prepare to deal with the issue or return the phone.

Should you have to 'correct' your behavior in order to use the phone, or should the phone work around you instead?

Should you have to buy an accessory in order for your $200 device to function properly?

1) The iPhone doesn't cost 200$. It's a 599/699$ piece of hardware, you just happen to buy it subsidised by AT&T. I will be buying the sim-free version at full price. For something work 700 bucks, Job's reply is far from acceptable.

2) Please someone tell Jobs that during his keynote he held the iphone exactly the way he's telling us not to hold it.


Breaking news: Mister Jobs holds his iphones the wrong way!!!

Amazing......
People, we really are not making this up.

This is the word for word response I received back from sjobs@apple.com after I asked him about the cell phone issue and also said that I had to buy a bumper to lessen the problem (and also asked that I should be comped for the bumper).

I am just as surprised at the response as you all are.

Highly doubt Steve Jobs is replying.

He is scheduled to meet with Dmitri Medvedev (of Russia). They're talking about things much larger than this issue.

I'm left-handed... why does Apple hate the lefties

Maybe Bill Gates is left handed, and this is some sick inside joke taken to the next level, courtesy of Jony Ive and El Jobso.

Well, I think it's pretty safe to say that it was someone, be it a secretary or some other Apple employee, responding on Apple's and/or Steve Jobs behalf.

It seems to be totally in his style. My email was about a cnaclled order and the replacement process. His reply:

Sorry. Too many customers wanted their phones on day one. The laws of physics prohibit this, so some will be upset.

Then if it is not Steve, then who is e-mailing in place of Steve Jobs and misrepresenting him? I doubt he'd let it happen.

This e-mail may be fake or it may not. Regardless, I would think that someone would reply for him. Unless of course, he authorized it.

and what exactly would that mean other than someone wrote you an e-mail it isn't an official statement, it isn't anything. it is an e-mail from an address that no one can verify is actually who he is claiming to be, so it is nothing

everyone just needs to calm down

I heard that sometimes his assistants will respond from that address, but this does really seem like a terse response Steve would give.

Aggie - sorry - YES.. I did get an iPhone 4 and yes - I have noticed (at least at my location) that I can reproduce the "issue" fairly often.

And believe me - I'm no troll. I thought the initial response was a joke (I'm in marketing and pr and can't believe that was the answer). I wrote back (you can see my reply) and didn't think he'd reply AGAIN. I'm glad he did to explain beyond "non issue."

Whether or not it's Jobs answering I really don't care. Whoever it is is the "official" word of Apple.
