    I suspect one user posted on YouTube. Apple made it obvious where to touch or not. "do not the hot pan" Media heard about it in the most excited period, launch day. It caught on fire! Competitiors may worsen the problem by throwing some fake you tubes with the reals to appear the problem is wide spread. Android fanboys and apple hatera put in their hands in this.

    It probably wouldn't have been half as bad if Jobs didn't show off where the antena was during wwdc and blogs used it to get hits.

    I think Gizmodo summed up the first videos about this problem.

    lolXD I don't even understand what you said.
    Only the "one user posted it on YouTube".
    My response to that - The issue (much bigger than it really is) is affecting more than just one user.

    I think it actually started here; on MacRumors
    One guy posted the youtube video and posted it here.
    I think if you go back, Gizmodo attributes the first report to a MacRumors reader, I think.

    I remember seeing it pop up the night before launch (a bunch of people got theirs delivered 1 day early) ... that's the first I saw it.

    As soon as Apple decided to call the next iPhone "iPhone 4".

    You see, the number four (4) is an unlucky number in the Chinese culture/business which sounds similar to the English word "death" when pronounced in Cantonese.

    Look at the events (1) lost prototype (2) suicides of Foxconn workers (3) "antennagate" issue (4) bad press (5) falling stock prices. I've never heard of so much news for one device from Apple or any other company! The iPhone 4 is plagued with bad luck!

    But people will still buy it, including myself. I case all my phones anyway.

    Well, let's see. First the earth cooled. And then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died and they turned into oil. And then the Arabs came and they bought Mercedes Benzes. And Prince Charles started wearing all of Lady Di's clothes, I couldn't believe it....

    I don't think Steve Jobs (or someone at Apple who responds to email) sending me the infamous "Non issue. Just avoid holding it in that way." helped the situation when I asked "Thanks for the tech. Question - What's going to be done about the signal dropping issue. Is it software or hardware?"

    I must reluctantly take credit (or blame) as the first person to start a thread about the issue. I received my phone the day before launch and immediately noticed the issue right after set up.

    Oh yeah - but I emailed Jobs.. So there ;)

    Kidding of course - ultimately who cares how it got started. You could say it was started the second the redesigned the phone...

    Hey, I care! ;) When "iPhone 4: The Movie" is produced, I want to have a say in who plays my role.

    So you posted to bump up the thread? And you clicked in even though it sounds like you don't care.

    Seems a bit silly for you to post what you did, no?
