    If you hold a Bold, Eris, etc they don't LOSE ALL DATA connectivity like the iPhone 4 does.It is a design flaw and all the smoke and mirrors is total ********.

    Agreed. This won't fool folks. Its very different cause by external metal antenna. No other phone has an external antenna... FOR A REASON.

    what is loose data? Haha..

    is it like data that wasn't tied down to the phone?

    Might want to rethink that statement. many phones have had external antennas, they just have never been placed in the exact place you hold the phone.

    And all of those external antennas were coated, for a reason.

    They should have come right out and called it what it was: a DESIGN flaw. I mean c'mon. The other phones they "tested" don't have exposed antennas. This is the major reason attenuation is so easily reproduced.

    Exactly! The bars are what people are focused on because they are visual. On the iP4, when the bars go down so does the data transfer speed. That is the problem, not the bars.

    My biggest problem with Apple's Press Conference is that they spent ages going on about how other organisations had done poor testing using unreliable methods (such as looking at bars on phones), then they went and based their entire argument on that same metric.

    One other major problem is that the comparison is flawed. All it takes is one touch on the iPhone 4 to make it drop signal and lose connection. You obviously can't duplicate the same thing on other phones. ;)
