    If the new one fixes the problem then yes, obviously. Why wouldn't you?

    Yes, but I would take this Wrapsol off and enjoy the phone without any case or film or bumpers, first. Once it's a little scratched up (should take about a month or so, I figure) I'd get it replaced.

    I would, but I would make Apple also pay for my invisible shield that costs £18!

    I'm pretty sure every single phone has the antenna issue. Some people just don't notice it b/c they're in a very high signal area so their phone doesn't drop below 5 bars. If they come out with a fixed antenna (and in doing so, acknowledge there definitely was a hardware issue), it would make absolutely no sense for someone not to have their device replaced...even if they THINK it's working perfectly fine.

    As I'm left handed yes I definitely would if they can offer something that will help. I love it too much to take it back for a refund but I would like a fix

    missing an option..

    "Yes I can reproduce the "death grip" issue, but it's not really an issue for me, so No I will not be exchanging and I'd rather not deal with schlepping to Apple."

    I choose this option. Also I am left handed and only notice the issue when I try to create it.

    Just out of curiosity, if they acknowledge that there is a hardware issue that does affect all phones whether you notice it or not, why would you NOT get it replaced for one that is fixed?

    If the phone is recalled, there is no reason NOT to pick up a new one.

    Even if your phone is working great -- if you ever do have a problem with it, and have to take it to the Apple store for service, you can bet they will not service the defective phone, and you will have to turn in.

    if it was recalled, corrected and a new model released - sure.

    What I don't get are the people who are currently beating down Apple to trade out for a phone that has the exact same design flaws...

    What's a "voluntary" recall? That would be the ability to return your phone if you're having problems...which is already in place.

    Yes but to get a "fixed" device which is NOT currently available.

    So all phones displaying under 5 bars are defective?
    Yeah ok. Then every phone I've ever had is defective. :rolleyes: Moot point all around, they have to first acknowledge a hardware issue before they issue a recall. Voluntary recalls are called customer returns.

    Huh, reading comprehension much?! That's not what I said at ALL.

    I said if they have such strong signal in their area that a slight decrease in signal strength would only decrease bars to 4 bars (at the least) then they wouldn't notice any issue. For example, in my office my reception is perfect. By doing the death grip I could only get the phone down to 4 bars. At home I show 5 bars but I know the signal is still weaker than my office. If I do the death grip I could drop it all the way to one bar. If you don't understand try reading this article where they explain it better. You need much less decrease in service to drop from 4 to 1 bar then 5 to 4.

    If they do I hope that ALL of the people that have been drinking the appleaide stays away from getting a new phone. You know the people that have been posting things like:

    - return it

    - no problems here

    - best phone ever

    That way the people that have ACTUAL problems have less of a wait to get a working phone. ;)

    You mean a phone that works great and has no problems? Yeah, I own one of those. I honestly don't see what the issue is here. If your phone doesn't work, replace it. If you don't like it or think the entire line if broken, return it. Apple's not making you hold on to your phone, and neither is AT&T. I went through 4 or 5 2Gs before I had one without any issues, this is no different.

    Perfect example of someone who should not send their phone in for a recall if they offer one. :D

    If Apple says there is a defect in the way the iPhone 4's were manufactured then your phone DOES have the issue and you just haven't experienced it yet (most likely b/c AT&T's service in your area is very good). I still don't understand why you wouldn't get it replace if Apple TELLS you that your phone is defective. Would you simply not believe them and call them liars!?

    Those people may defend the phone with uttermost diligence now but come a recall they will be first in line to get their phones swapped.
