So most of us have had the iPhone 3, probably even the 1 and 2. So, my iPhone 3 didn't have the death grip problem. So I think therein lies the problem. They sent it out knowing it had a weakness. I know, I've heard all smartphones have this problem, but IT WASN'T widespread or even brought up in the previous model, so THAT, I feel is the problem. Shipped flaw. Discuss.
