    The proximity sensor problem appears to be far bigger of a deal than the antenna. Apple Support forums have more posts about the sensor than any other issue with iPhone 4. In fact, they had to close the thread on Apple.com due to too many posts---

    Of all the people I know with iPhone 4, none have an antenna issue. But all have issues with the prox sensor.

    Antennagate stole the spotlight from the proximity sensor issue, the retina display, FaceTime, 5MP camera, 720p video recording, gyroscope, A4 processor, thinner design, longer battery life, etc...


    yes, I agree with you.

    I believe that it's been accepted as a software fixable issue, as opposed to a design flaw.

    I've never experienced it, but I'm sure it exists on my phone - after-all, mine is no different from yours. I wish people would accept that about the antenna issue...

    prox sensor issue

    I am using speaker phone on calls and blue tooth in auto to avoid phone losing calls or redailing a contact as my face touches screen. This phone ant ready for prime time! I thought Apple was the greatest until the "ordering the IPhone 4" day disaster> Now this phone has problems - please do not tell me is doesn't. At local Apple store they acknowledge sensor problem. I have owned every IPhone and could not wait for next one - if these phones cost me $700 - so what I paid it - in fact, paid for two of them as each new model arrives - as my wife also has one! I thought Apple was the greatest - not anymore!

    No because they are working on it. All they need to do is increase the value in which the sensor "sees" something obscuring it thus turning off the screen.

    The proximity sensor problem does not appear to be the same type of fatal hardware flaw that the reception problem is. Therefore it doesn't deserve the same coverage.

    No b/c Jobs acknowledged it and said a fix is in the works.
