How many tries until Apple can figure out how to display the bars correctly?

    Way to go pulling out the change log! I remember that change, but had not seen the notes in a while.

    Apple has some balls to try and say that they wer "shocked" to find out that the bars were being reported wrongly.

    LOL Apple probably just went back to the original formula for calculating reception, my 3GS has ~1 bar with 4.0.1.
