    It also makes a great paper weight.

    OMG! I have the same problem.

    One solution might be to amputate your left arm and replace it with an artificial one that wouldn't bridge the gap in the antennae? Just a thought.

    Don't blame ATT, blame all those folks still trying to buy the phone and clogging up the network! Shoo! Go away! You're stealing my network bandwidth!

    Cool story, bro.

    Return it and get a Droid.

    and finally: you are holding it wrong.

    p.s. it's a non-issue

    p.p.s. blackberries taste better than Apples - ask Adam and Eve.

    Do what everyone else has done to fix it, just email sjobs@apple.com and it will be fixed in no time

    The fix is Don't hold the phone.
    The other way to solve this is hold the button on the top for 5 seconds then slide the red bar across the top of the screen,
    this should stabilize the signal.

    Not everyone deserves an iPhone, particularly you.

    Why did you get the iP4? The iP5 was just released with a new and improved antenna.

    It's "searching" for someone with a clue.

    The reception issue doesn't really bother me all that much anymore now that I have a case. Sucks though.

    What really bothers me is the OTHER major flaw I've come to find... my iPhone 4 doesn't cook breakfast for me! WTF?!
