    It might be unlikely Apple will do a recall, but if they do, it would mean lots of iPhone 4's will be going back.

    The iPhone 4 "defective version" will go down in history as being one of the most publicized products in history. Also spawning catch phrases such as, "Your doing it wrong" and "Death Grip". The public will be referring back to the iPhone 4 in puns and jokes for years to come.

    Would you keep your iPhone 4 to collect it if their is a recall?

    The phones are going to be identical minus a small internal change in the antenna band. Who would care to keep theirs?

    "You're doing it wrong" was around and widespread waaaaay before the iPhone 4 was out.

    In addition, Darth Vader was using the death grip a long long time ago, in a galaxy far far away.

    I will be keeping my phone no matter what happens. Mine is 10000000000% perfect.

    That is Spock with the "Vulcan Death Grip" made known from Star Trek - The Enterprise Incident. It was actually made up and didn't exist to trick the Romulans to thinking Captain Kirk was dead.

    Darth Vader had the "Choke Hold".

    Exactly- So just like rare Apple products (especially failed flagship products) today are worth more to collectors, in 30 years- having a "Launch iPhone 4" would be a pretty rare thing... it may not retain it's full purchase value, but more so then say, an iPhone 3GS or a (assuming successful) iPhone 5

    A sealed launch day iPhone 4 would probably be worth something compared to one that's already been used..

    i guess he meant "you're holding it wrong" in combination with "sent from my white iPhone 4" :D
