    "We intentionally chose a fatally flawed design because it looks good.
    We don't care about the reception problems and we're not fixing them.
    So long as we keep getting your money it's a NON ISSUE."

    I would have a lot more respect for Apple if they came out and said something like this instead of some PR BS about how magical and revolutionary it is to drop calls.

    I think Apple values their livelihood more than they do your respect.

    unless you're a shareholder with a significant amount of money in the company or have influence in the media, I doubt it.

    That'd just become a lie in one month's time when they'll have released the fix and everyone's iPhone 4s work just fine.

    that is your version of the truth, and the truth really probably is somewhere in the middle, seems everyone is upset that they aren't hearing what they would like to hear or their version of the truth.

    Sir, have you even taken the time to read ONE semi-technical article about this?

    I am NOT saying that Apple didn't F&%$ up here, but jumping off the deep end into the land of "choosing a fatal flaw" and "we're not fixing them" seems a little off base, not to mention factually incorrect. From what info is out there, the design was actually an interesting attempt to come up with something better, but for whatever reason, is going pear-shaped at the moment for a lot of people.

    Are they giving PR spin? Yes, of course. Are they going to just leave it at that? I'd bet you a coldbeer they wont.

    (I drink Fat Tire ale, just FYI)

    Except that I can produce results with my iPhone 4 that show they're telling the truth.

    Enjoy your tin foil hat.

    Couldn't agree more....

    Turns out there's nothing wrong in the first place....My phone has been fine with less dropped calls then my 3G actually. Imagine that...

    People love to bitch since they have nothing worthwhile to focus on.
