    I was going to pick up or try to pick an iPhone 4 up tomorrow but Ive been watching youtube videos about how there is a reception issue with the aluminum band around the phone if you hold it/touch it the wrong way.

    This has made me rethink about buying one but I want to get other people's opinoin and experience with the iPhone 4 from this forum before I make a move.

    So, is this issue really that bad? Do you get dropped calls or are people just totally blowing this who reception issue thing out of proportion?

    My wife has had her iPhone 4 now for 2 weeks, and I just got mine a few days ago. We absolutely love them. No reception issues...no proximity issues...awesome phones. I feel like the whole reception issue was overblown...or it is less of a problem in Canada with our networks.

    I have had mine for two weeks now, not a single problem. FWIW

    The 2 networks are a little better in Canada because it doesn't have the huge traffic like AT&T. So the antenna issue isn't a problem here.

    But I do recommend to still get a case and protect it just in case if it falls or gets scratched....

    My sentiments exactly. I'm with Rogers and I do have a case on mine, no issues whatsoever. FWIW, I know stocks are low everywhere but I got mine at a Wireless Etc kiosk at my local Costco. So you may want to try obscure locations where you might luck out, like I did.
