    Pretty much all devices have a death grip, it is the same as trying to get reception from inside a bomb shelter. As far as I am concerned it was just some propaganda from the cell companies not getting the iphone at the time. Don't smother the phone and you should be fine.

    Don't hold your phone like the Hulk and you should be fine.

    They are still designed the same way, right? So I guess any problems that the first ones have, these will have. Probably.

    Funny, I could barley hear them... Then I found out I was holding the phone backwards and upside down.

    I have the verizon iPhone and I do have the 'issue' in that a certain way of holding my phone can make my bars dip slightly. It certainly doesn't disturb my normal usage, and I use it without a case. But it will be present on any iPhone 4.

    I can't believe how blown out of proportion this was. To actually emulate the "death grip", I literally have to grip the phone like I'm trying to kill it. Total non issue!

    I love holding my phone with the grip of death. Don't know why my bars are going down tho.
