    No wonder the antennagate issue exists. Look at how they tested the iPhone 4 in their state of the art anechoic chambers!! Notice what's wrong with this picture ;) :D (answer: right handed testing only)

    that's exactly why they didn't know about this problem until later. I'm sure the bumpers were made to alleviate this exact issue ;)

    regardless of whatever steve-o says, I'm still 100% content with my iPhone 4. Unless there is another maker out there who can make something just like the iPhone 4 or better without these antenna issues, there's no point in bitching.

    Don't even bring up any android doo-doo phones. I'd go back to my moto razr before I would ever PAY for an android device. They are not up to iPhone 4 standards.

    Yeah I didn't think this was a big issue before today and I think its even less of an issue now.

    They spent 100 million on that room, but can't spend that on fixing the damn phones ? I believe they said they had 18 scientists also, lol.

    I don't have a case on, however. But I don't hold it that way anymore.

    1) It's great to be Apple, your supporters will defend any shortcoming no matter what.

    2) These are some standards alright.., :)

    iPhone 4 is a Catholic plot against left-handed people.

    Its cost them 175 million so far with the free bumper solution so clearly it would cost them far more than that to do an actual fix. As well as end up with egg on their face.
