Apple has no choice but to make this right, even though in reality you and I both know this is not a show stopper. Sure a few of you will return the phone and get something else, which I understand..........kind of. But I know the rest of you will work with this phone because it is amazing and well worth it. I haven't had a single problem with it, once I accepted it's one shortcoming at the moment. Before it was almost like I was challenging it to fail. I knew where not to hold it but I kept doing it anyway, I was just messing with it trying to make it fail. I have a bumper on and it feels great in the hand, I feel semi-secure that I've protected my investment from some possible damage. Maybe not a fatal fall, but it just feels good to have it on there. I've also temporarily remedied the reception issue my hands can cause on this device, they had to have known we all have hands. (also have a Best Skins Ever for the sides on the way, which will also cushion that seam on the left from my conductive skin) Can I sit in my low signal bedroom, intentionally cover the left seam and make signal drop. Yup, I made a video on it I'm actually enjoying this little episode of technology "drama". I'm confident that Apple isn't going to screw this up regardless of what one short email said, which was stupid. I mean if Apple just addressed it professionally I don't think the meda attention would be so negative. Just acknowledge it, don't look shady, people aren't stupid, most anyway. This is like Steve Jobs little baby project isn't it? This whole Iphone thing? He reads the blog sites, he knows what's up, no way is he just going to tell people to hold it differently and only that, maybe that in conjunction with some software patch. I'm just really curious if any of you are actually concerned that Apple will screw this up, it just doesn't seem like a possible scenario with the amount of attention this has gotten. If they can't resolve this there will be a fairly tarnished Iphone on the market for a year, god help them if they release a revised version in half a year and actually sell it, because that would be the last straw for me. Anyway, hope you read, if not I know it was long. lol Just thinking out loud, and then typing it, because I'm bored.
