    4.0 has been buggy in general. I'm really looking forward to 4.1, hopefully by then most of the buggs would have ironed out.

    Have you had AT&T previously? Have you had reception issues before? Which phone did you have?

    I've owned 3 iPhones and I must say that the iPhone 4 gets the best reception - for me. Are you dropping calls when you are not holding the phone or with a case? Have you talked to Apple or AT&T? Replaced the phone?

    I have not noticed any changes at all, other than having fewer bars now than before. Data speed is the same. I have not yet lost a call since getting the phone.

    I find my 4 is better than all my previous iPhones. Reception, speed, everything. I am glad I got it and will continue to love it.

    I regretted upgrading to 4.0.1 on my 3Gs.

    But not with my iPhone 4... Hahah. 3Gs is now a guinea pig

    No problem here. Best phone I have ever owned. Try restoring as a new phone.

    The only difference you should notice on the 4.0.1 is the bar displayed for the signals, not performance related issues.

    At work my iPhone 4 was getting full signal at ground level and underground level, when I updated to 4.0.1 I started to get 4 sometimes 5 bars upstairs and usually 3 or 2 bars downstairs.

    When I tried to do the "death grip" before I sometimes would have drop a bar upstairs and I dropped 2/3 bars downstairs. Now if I do the grip I hardly drop a bar downstairs and none upstairs.

    There are areas where I can replicate the drop and area where I cannot. I use a bumper, and To do my test I had to take that off. But anyway I am happy with it and I haven't a dropped a call yet.

    4.0.1 doesn't affect reception. You're conditioned by the ridiculous press and blowhards. Don't like it - return it. Get something else that is 100% perfect. When you find it, let us know. :cool:

    If you're that frustrated by the phone, return it. I'm not trying to sound harsh but why not return it and be done with it. You can then find a different phone that suits your needs or even a used 3Gs

    Of course, it did one thing and only one thing. Changed the heuristics on computing signal strength. Its now more accurate and showing less bars.

    I have a 3gs, at work, I always had 5 bars of 3G. yesterday I upgraded to 4.0.1. Now I understand that the display is different, but now I just have "no service" and I can't use the internet at all. I used to be able to listen to iheartradio all is pissing me off....
