Yes or no.
PLEASE READ WHAT IT DOES.
It changes the way the bars are shows. that does not change the hardware antenna of the phone in any way. When you conduct the 2 places it will forever loose signal. Sorry.
The answer is no, it may look like it does, but your still dropping 20 decibels and that's a fact.
HOOORAY! IT WORKS!
4.0.1 also solved world peace and cured the cancer in my pet turtle!
i love threads where i can pick both yes and no.
added a poll.
would be useful if people tried calling in places where they had dropped calls
lmao, thinking the same thing.
Haha! Just did that!
Tomorrows announcement will be a well crafted, highly misleading placebo. Once upon a time Apple was the champion for consumers. Now they've grown up to be the greedy corporate giant that tells their customers how it's going to be. Somethings never change. Like the saying goes, you pay your money & take your chances. Apples like Las Vegas. It's all about the money.
love the percentages... 63% yes, 94% no... how does that = 100%?
You can vote both yes and no sadly.
Mine seems to be a bit snappier. The signal bars don't seem to go down as much but they never did really before.
lol oops i buggered the poll up. Just shows the amount of immature people on these boards though.
i think some of us would appreciate real responses, try calling people in areas where you dropped calls previously, try speedtest results, internet etc.
Seriously? Are you delusional? Apple has already stated that the signal bars tweak will NOT remedy reception issues. Just stop.
Yes, it improves the call quality by .01%. Look apple. This thing is not going to fly. If people are buying smart phones, then they are probably more than just average joe who knows what is going on with tech world. Either recall the product or come up with something else.
I think we can all agree it brings us less bars in more places.
not made a difference for me. down from 5 bars to 1 in the death grip. waste of time
well this thread will be a good opportunity to prove Apple wrong then wont it.
Slightly better, before I would completly lose signal, now it goes down to 1 bar and I can still make calls
I think some have a hard time understanding the difference between hardware and software, that is the only thing that can explain this thread. OF COURSE the software update did not fix the hardware flaw, I don't understand how this is debatable...
I'm updating my iPhone 4 right now, maybe Jobs has a included a magic packet that will magically restructure the phone
Ok, so the bars don't drop all the way now, BUT since the update I can not get a 3G connection at all
I think Apple's "software fix" was genius for several reasons:
- It shifts blame from them to AT&T. Instead of having more bars in more places, people will consistently see fewer bars. If you drop a call after falling from 5 bars to Searching, it's easiest to blame the phone. If you drop a call after going from 1 bar to Searching, it's easiest to blame the network.
- I'm not saying that the update fixed my reception problem, but it did change the way I perceive it, and that was their goal. I have a very strong science background, and I fully understand that this update didn't affect the way the hardware operates.
That being said, for the life of me I can't get a call to drop in the same location where it was happening before. I can get my phone to drop from 2 bars to 1 bar, but I can't get it to go to Searching, either during or outside of a call, with or without a case.
However, although I can't get it to drop a call, I can make it unable to receive a call. Meaning that even though I have 1 bar, if someone calls me while I'm deathgripping, their call goes to voicemail.
I still have more testing to do, but I think Apple is very smart from a "politics is perception" standpoint, and I think this update will cause less complaints to them and more complaints to AT&T.
Prove Apple wrong on what? They told you this is only a signal bar recalculation. They never told you this is the fix to the signal drop.
You are just delusional. Quit it. This thread is pointless.

Yeah cuz Apple just throws out updates untested with no idea if they'll work.
lol well they threw a phone out
"Death Grip" will drop down to 1 bar but will not drop a call.
