    I am FAR too impressed with the capabilities of the iPhone4. The FaceTime feature is incredible, the 2-camera idea is genius, AND I got a sweet neon green bumper that compliments the black device perfectly. I've been taking more photos than ever and I've been meaning to create a cool video using the iMovie app. I haven't had any problems with dropped calls or lack of service. The battery does not last as long as my original iPhone but that may be simply because I use it more.

    Is the exterior antenna going to give me cancer, you know, the same way microwaves, water bottles, pesticides, deodorant, fish, car fumes, artificial sweeteners, cured meat, the sun, the animals, the people and the air do?

    Yup, and I bet your health insurance won't cover iPhone related Cancers either.

    Unless you hold the phone to to your ear for over 12 hours a day making calls, I really wouldn't worry. You won't get cancer holding the phone in your hand and surfing, but too much cell call use near the ear is never good.

    I tried to give a good, honest response here, people...

    Deodorant and fish don't give you cancer. So, put a fish under both your arms and take a load off your mind.

    The outer antenna strip releases radiation at >30dB and your green bumper amplifies this exponentially. The risk of you getting cancer is 99.99%. The cancer will move quickly through your body, and treatment won't be able to contain it if you don't get help immediately!

    Yes! And if you hold the phone too close to your heart you can probably get a heart attack from all the excitement seems like you have about the phone.

    Becarelful.

    I've got someone here in the office who attached some biopro thingy to the side of her phone because supposedly it'll stop the radiation....

    If you hold your phone improperly there is an increased chance (+.018%) of getting pinkular cancer (aka pinky cancer).

    In all seriousness our addiction to gadgets will probably end up giving us cancer years from now. "They" used to think smoking was good for you.
