    The only thing it'll fix is Jailbreak vulnerability.

    I think this is why we won't see a iPhone 4 jailbreak until a month from now. They are waiting on Apple to release a minor update to correct minor problems. No point of giving Apple a chance to patch it in the update.

    If you have a royal flush in your cards, you don't go all in on the flop. You milk them for everything they got.

    How could this POSSIBLY be fixable via software.
    When I make a call, as SOON as I touch the antenna notch, the signal drops and neither person can hear each other, and as soon as I let go, we can talk again. Software fix my ass

    All a update will do is make the bars less sensitive.

    I think this is what it is. SOme times, I would have no bars but would still get good call quality and would be able to browse the net on my 3G connections. Lets just hope it gets fixed one way or another.

    My understanding of that article is that the iPhone is constantly searching through the entire frequency spectrum and switching between the strongest ones.

    From what that article says, it's currently a little slow in doing so. So when you cover up that part of the phone (Or short the metal, whatevers happening), it loses connection to certain frequency ranges, and doesn't connect to alternative ones fast enough to keep the connection.

    I think what Apple is hoping to do is speed up this process. So if my understanding is correct it could be quite fixable. :)

    Well, the reception issue can be replicated on an iPhone 3G and 3GS. I know, i've tried it on my 3G running iOS4 and get the same problem which didn't occur using iPhone OS 3.

    Indeed. This suggests to me that this frequency switching is set in software and was set too low in iOS4 by default.

    I can confirm that the problem doesn't happen when the iPhone 4 is connected to the AT&T Microcell. I have a Microcell and didn't see the problem and was wondering what all the fuss was about.

    It is good to know the problem has likely been identified and a fix is on the way.

    I called apple and talked to a senior advisor yesterday. He wrote me back this evening.
    Larry,

    We've received our reply from the escalation regarding the issue we discussed earlier. They are currently still investigating the issue & hope to have something sent out soon. It will come in the form of a document for us to troubleshoot, or a software update 4.0.1. So everyday check for available updated through iTunes & see if that resolves the issue, if it comes as a form of a document for me, I will get in touch with you for further troubleshooting.

    Sincerely,
    R...... H.......

    Sounds like the same fix they release in 2.0.1 back in 2008 on the 3G phones that did the same thing.

    I don't have a 3GS, but I've been able to replicate it on my 3G on both Orange UK and O2-UK.
