    I was just wondering if the fix is coming for iPhone 2g too? I ask so, because in the open letter from Apple, they mentioned that they were surprised to see that the Antenna signal mismatch was from original iPhone.

    Will they provide the fix for original iPhone 2G?

    No, since there is no iOS 4.* for the first generation iPhone.

    I would not expect a patch for the iPhone 2G nor do I consider it a significant issue. While AT&T has a formula for determining the number of bars shown on handsets, it is only a recommendation. A phone using an alternate formula is not be considered to have a flaw.

    Nor does the original iPhone have the skewed bars-scale like the iPhone 4 (and supposedly 3G and 3GS) based on my testing via Field Test. It's hard to tell exactly, but I'm fairly certain it works like below for us:

    5 bars: -51 to -81 dBm
    4 bars: -83 to -89 dBm
    3 bars: -91 to -97 dBm
    2 bars: -99 to -105 dBm
    1 bar: -107 to -113 dBm

    Compare that to the iPhone 4, which Anandtech says shows 5 bars as low as -91 dBm, which my original iPhone shows as 3 bars.
