    First

    Lets see what broom they bring out to try to sweep the issue under the rug again.

    2nd

    I hope they say they are idiots for making a phone that can't make phone calls and that they will be fixing it.

    (I work indirectly for apple and usually i would be called a fanboy but I have had so many issues I had to return my iPhone 4)

    Hmm. Hopefully they address the white iPhone at the same time.

    Finally, the silence will be broken! We hope. Just, hopefully it's not more denial and false hopes.

    I see in my pessimistic crystal ball not much

    I see them staying their ground and citing outside research done to verify that the "issue" is not unique to the iPhone and that despite reports to the contrary, every phone exhibits the behavior.

    I then see them re-iterating that Apple will continue it's promise to allow returns for up to 30 days for people that are unsatisfied with their magical device.

    Well, I hope they release it soon. But I'm going to be rather upset if all this antennae nonsense causes them to delay it any further. Friday will be the 16th - the second half of July - and I want my damn phone.

    There is no reception issue.

    Free bumpers for everyone.

    About time Apple came out and said *something* about this.

    Well, hopefully it's about something meaningful, and not just announcing the white iPhone and 4.1. I want to hear what they are planning to do with the proximity issue and reception, or at least acknowledge a problem.

    I predict more of the same:

    • iPhone 4 is the best product we've ever shipped
    • xx% of users have reported they are able to make more calls in more places
    • Stupid anecdote about 1 single user having some life-altering event due to the iPhone
    • White iPhone 4 is shipping soon
    • Our new firmware update will fix the issue users have been complaining about of having incorrect signal showing (even though this ISN'T the issue people are complaining about)

    Sorry for the cynicism but after being constantly spoken down to from Apple "Geniuses" and how Steve Jobs writes his condescending email responses, I am not expecting much more.
