    For the really die hard sceptics on the antenna issue.....

    This is from a very basic Nokia 3110 (non-3G) phone.

    The manual shows a very nice picture of how to hold, and not hold a phone.

    Does it look familiar?

    Ash. I see Nokia have real documentation on how not to hold this particular handset.

    Does Apple provide any official documentation warning users how not to hold the iP4 out of interest? Is it printed in the user manual like Nokia have here?

    The problem with the iPhone, is the antenna is at a location where people naturally hold the phone. No so with the Nokia.

    Having used that phone, I can attest to the fact that the signal does drop when you hold it in that unapproved manner. However, I can also attest to the fact that the phone has yet to drop a call on me, even when I tried covering up the antenna completely, just out of spite of that picture :D
