    I'm just curious to see how many iPhone 4 users on the boards will return their phone if there is a recall instated.

    I would return mine, but only because I still have my 3gs. If I didn't, I wouldn't return it. The signal dropping is a non issue where I live.

    I live one mile from an Apple store, so it's no big deal for me to wait in line. I would exchange my iphone 4 in a heartbeat since I am left-handed and can't hold the phone comfortably without dropping a call.

    If they'd have replacements available right then (and would let me grab a white one instead ;) ), then sure. Otherwise, no, as I sold my 3GS. I cannot go back to a RAZR; I don't care how long the wait is.

    I may not immediately return the phone for a recall -- but I suspect that if you attempt to have any service done on the phone whatsoever, Apple will not work on pre-recalled units (i.e. Apple will force the exchange/recall).

    Just like with automobiles and all other recalls (heck, McDonalds recalled all the Shrek glasses a couple months ago) there is no requirement that people participate in the recall. You don't have to turn the phone in if you don't want to. Keep using the defective unit if you want. But do so at your own risk.

    Yeah, if they have replacements right there, I'd go for it, but otherwise I'm satisfied with mine.

    Mine works as well as I could have ever hoped for. I won't be returning it

    Why would you return your phone if you're happy with it?

    As long as Apple is willing, I'm willing to work with them to resolve the problem.

    i think if the bumper solves the problem apple should give out free bumpers and give refunds to people who already bought one

    And risk getting one with a bad proximity sensor? No thanks. I can drop my bars at will without a case, but with a case the phone is fine by me.

    Nope. Keeping my launch day iPhone 4.

    My only real problem is the camera's white balance. I only use the call function 5% of the time. Maybe less than that. Like a glorified iPod touch that can make calls and text. And when I do receive a call, I am not on it very long anymore, it is on speakerphone (keep screen clean), or I answer it with the mic headphones. So the antenna and proximity issue is a non-issue to me. I still have never experienced a dropped call where I live. I can be on a phone for hours talking to a friend or relative, but for this year of 2010, I prefer to just text people now or YM.

    It'd exchange it but I wouldn't return it. Love the phone and can't see myself going back to the 3GS.

    Mine's fine. It has reception issues, but they are not that serious. My phone does get hot when I use it in a hot, sunny weather (I was using the recording/iMovie), but other than that, it's fine. Minor issues, really. I've made plenty of calls and so far, none of them has dropped. Then again, I never made any call that lasted over 5-10 minutes at most.

    I love my phone a little too much. I don't think I can do it.

    I think I'd be happy if they just stopped the os from telling me each time it couldn't find the carrier. Never used to happen with Ios3... :eek:

    This is a non issue for me and these threads are starting to annoy me!

    I get full bars... If I touch the bottom left corner I drop to one. I've even tried cupping the bottom corner until I've had one bar for over a minute and then making a call... Perfect quality call!

    Have I ever dropped a call.... no
    Have I ever missed a text or an email.... no
    Have I ever lost signal completely.... no
    Would I have even noticed the issue if it wasn't splattered all over the net... no!!

    The iPhone 4 is the same as the 3G for me.... If I clasp the 3G back with mh two hands I can make it drop two bars. Big deal.

    I won't be bringing mine back unless the phone they are offering actually has a new feature or something!

    I would not return it. I am not in denial about having the reception issue like some people here, but I had a bumper ordered on the 15th when I ordered my phone. I don't plan on using the phone without the bumper so to me it is a non issue. Not going to waste my time returning and setting up a new phone.

    you could always just not read these threads? You might wind up a lot calmer without a need for so many !'s in your posts too...

    I believe that would require him to not visit these forums ever again, as EVERY thread is nothing but nitpicking people who are actually looking for things wrong with their phone.

    I haven't received my iPhone 4 yet, but as long as the proximity sensor isn't a dud I will never return it.....It's a phone....made by humans....not gods.

    If they want me to ship it or anything crazy, no. If it's as simple as walking in and exchanging, I'm down.
