    Okay, I think I am.

    OK, I can touch the low-left bottum corner and it'll drop only one bar.

    Wishful thinking considering how many people can't reproduce the reception issue on their 1 week old iPhone 4s.

    Congrats man. You'll love all the little tweaks and big new features. The retna display kicks ass and it's wicked fast. And luckily you don't have the reception issue. Enjoy.

    I've seen a lot of people posting that they can MAKE the bars drop, but it hasn't been a flood of people actually stating they have serious call/data dropping issues (there are some, but not nearly as many as can simply make the bars drop by purposely shorting the antenna)...if this call dropping issue was HALF as widespread as some people would like you to believe it is, there would be lines for miles outside every Apple and AT&T store with people retuning the phones... :rolleyes:
    There are nearly 2,000,000 iPhone 4's in the market already...it's pretty safe to say that MOST people aren't returning the phones...

    Mine is pretty f*cked, dropped 3 out of 4 calls I made yesterday and I can make it go from 5 bars to 1 bar just by holding it.

    Pretty nasty actually.

    Very good point. I wonder, though, how many are buying into the mass hysteria and returning the phone based on the ability to make the bars drop rather than actual dropped calls.

    I think the "hysteria" is dying down and only the people having "real use" issues seem to be the ones returning or swapping the phones...outside of these types of forums, everyone else I know that has an iPhone 4 has no idea about this issue and think the phones are great...
    I remember a similar "panic" here with the 3G and 3GS "yellow screen flaw" where the typical "sky is falling" "Apple is evil" "Steve is screwing us again" crowd was trying to convince everyone else that EVERY PHONE SUFFERS FROM THIS ISSUE!!!!1111!!!! We even had the usual "your're either blind and can't see the defect or an Apple FanBoy in denial" posts by the hundreds...:rolleyes:

    Again, YES! SOME people are having real use issues dropping calls and or data with the iP4 and for them I feel sympathy as it sux to get a defective iPhone especially after waiting in line for hours to get it, but it is certainly not MOST people as the alarmists would have us think...

    I'm interested to see if the signal problem is still there on the new batch. Remember the week 37 iPod touches with bad screens? That batch was bad, but the rest were fine.

    Anyway, OP, congratulations on the iPhone!

    My iPhone CAN produce the problem, however it has no problem to me, as it only drops at max two bars.

    This batch is fauty still.

    it is very doubtful that the reception problem is batch related.

    We got ours on the 29th at AT&T store and have had NO problems. Camera pics look good, no yellow blotches on screens and reception is fine. We did put them in Belkin cases pretty much immediately so that most likely eliminated the possibility of the reception issue anyway, not sure what to think of people who insist on running this thing naked. Ah, not my place to judge I guess.
    Anyway we really enjoy the phone and are over the moon at all the things it can do and kind of roll our eyes at all the yammering and complaining about it.:rolleyes:

    I think a lot of the hysteria stems from the media center being in New York, one of the most notoriously overloaded networks in the country. I'm in North Florida and the coverage is great and we're a LOT more spread out so the network is not nearly as strained so everything seems to be working great. My advice for the haters is return it or move!

    TO OP..............

    Aside from the reception issue the other HUGE issue is the Proximity Sensor. Do me a favor and make a call for a few minutes and put it up to you phone and keep it flush with your ear but move around a bit and let us know if the screen comes on and you press keys, turn on the speaker, put calls on hold or start facetime etc.

    That is really in all reality the biggest issue with this phone... curious if your new batch has this issue... or at least your phone anyway.
