    Hey all,

    So I got a bumper to solve my reception problems. I have to say that it's "better" in that my signal degradation isn't as bad, but I still go from 5 bars down to 1 when I hold the phone in my left hand in the "bad" way (which happens to be how I naturally hold the phone).

    Anyone else seeing this too?

    Thanks,
    BoB

    I still have the problem with bumpers...

    Proof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIPVY4w3bGE

    I was anxious to try out the iphone4 bumpers to see if they fix my reception issue. I guess they don't! This time I stayed with 1 bar on 3G, other times I switch to edge. I have dropped calls.

    Oh, and according to this: http://www.cellreception.com/towers/
    I am 1750 feet as the crow flies, to the nearest ATT cell tower.

    My Apple Store told me that they are reluctant to give out a replacement until further information comes in from Apple HQ because they all have the same issue.
