    1. Left Hand, call drop & 3g Signal Bar loss issue while holding the phone with your left hand...

    2. Video recording when holding the phone upright produces some very "long" vertical stretched videos.

    3. You cant upload 720p videos to youtube from your phone. You must use the SYNC cable and download the videos to your desktop and upload them that way.

    Nothing major yet.
    Safari shortcuts on the home screens no longer work for me.

    Mine is fine, but my dad's came with what seems to be a defective speaker assembly -- when calling via speakerphone or recording video, sounds are extremely faint -- as if the system's cancelling out the voice. It works fine via headphones or when speakers are off, but that means that normal facetime doesn't work.

    Same here, its irritating. I even make new ones and they don't work either. Any solutions?

    RESOLVED: Just do a hard reset (holding down home key and lock key at same time for 10 seconds) then wait like 15 seconds an turn back on. links work fine now.

    The phone signal thing, although I don't know if it actually affects anything.

    What I wish would be updated via software is two things: Some sort of Finder feature and wireless sync. Wireless sync is obvious. What I mean by Finder is to have basically a disk folder that shows your files. I don't want to pay $100/year for MobileMe for an iDisk. I just want to do something that an iPod I owned five years ago could do.

    Same issue with my husband's iphone4. AT&T said we'll have to exchange it when stock is in.

    Can only very rarely get EDGE or GPRS when roaming onto Orange (using a 3 SIM), usually it just stays as a plain old telephone signal and won't connect to data.

    Edit: Just tried it back in my 3GS and it's the same. I guess they have disabled 2G data - pity. Might have to consider other networks now.

    I have found that the web browsing speed is markedly slower on Iphone 4 than 3GS either using wi-fi or 3G. Anyone else experiencing this?:confused:

    1. Left hand signal drop
    2. When I take a photo it shows up in the photos app as a black box, when I open that box it will not let me do anything else (not even delete) when I close photos and re-open the photo appears
    3. Email arriving on 1/1/1970 with no sender, no subject and no content, cannot open it or delete it. (solved this now by disabling the email account then re-enabling it)

    Overall, not that happy, I will see how I feel after the weekend but I am seriously considering returning it.

    Biggest thing is 3 times yesterday when i was on a call, both sides went mute for 3-5 seconds, then came back like nothing ever happened. No signal loss noticed at this time. But neither side could hear anything.

    I also have had the display not turn on twice now. Hit home or sleep/wake button, nothing. Hold down home, get the tones for voice control, still no display. Plugged it in and hit home and it came on.

    Wondering if these are unique or have others experienced either of these? Maybe mine is defective, which would be a first in about 8 phones my wife and I have had (we've each replaced one for water damage in the last 4 years)

    I have a set of V-Moda headphones with the mic and the headphones work fine, but the mic doesn't work. I haven't tried the supplied headset, but I suspect the result will be the same. Anyone else?

    When exiting a video in the iPod app to use another app that won't run simultaneously (e.g. camera), I can't go straight back to the video I was watching when done using the camera. It only goes back to the playlist that contained the video. There's not even a "now playing" button to click to get back into the video. This became incredibly annoying this morning when I went for a walk and ended up taking a lot of photos to test the new camera. Every time I went back to the iPod app, I had to make do with just hitting "shuffle" on the playlist rather than go back to what I'd been watching.

    This was never a problem with the 3GS (on 3.1.2). I don't know if it's an iOS4 issue or what, but I'm hoping there's a fix for it very soon.
