A lot of people are experiencing problems when performing the death grip or merely placing a finger on the bottom left side of the iPhone 4. The popular theory is that by connecting the two antenna's you detune the antenna, because it becomes "longer". I can replicate this issue, to some extent. In some situations (weak cellphone reception area's) I can make the iPhone 4 drop some bars. However, the antenna's also meet near the headphone port. I understand that nobody holds the phone there when making a call. But it could interfere when you're browsing the internet in landscape. Anyway, I tried to connect and death grip the antenna's near the headphone port. Nothing happens. I don't get it. Shouldn't this result in the same effect as connecting the antenna's on the left side?
