    Issue: "iPhone 4 consistently drops call when we are touching the lower left corner of the device."

    How to fix it?

    A. Permanent Fix:

    • Conductive anodizing on WiFi antenna => Nonconductive anodizing.
    • Conductive anodizing on UMTS antenna => Either conductive or nonconductive anodizing.

    B. Temporary Fix (Fix it yourself):

    • Bumper
    • Case
    • Non-conductive Tape
    C. Example (It works for me): :rolleyes::D

    Sorry to be a noob...

    What exactly is non-conductive tape? And did this completely fix your problem?

    That's clever, showing there is a problem, at least with some phones. I was getting suspicious when people said using the bumper fixed the problem, that made it a bigger deal than your hand just absorbing some of the signal just by obstruction. If a strip of cellophane tape solves the problem then either some phones are defective or the antenna system was ill-concieved.

    Non-conductive tape is tape that contains or is made from non-conductive materials such as rubber and plastic.
