    I decided to see if slightly 'damp' hand would play an extra part in completing this antenna circuit 'short' and I GOT SHOCKED!

    It felt kinda like to sticking a 9v battery to your tongue, but not as strong!

    Does anyone else feel this mild shock?!!!

    What about people who sweat alot and have really clammy hands?

    Maybe someone with really clammy hands can test this thought

    They can buy a case or film protector! People are creating problems just to have something to complain about.

    A phone should work without you having to spend more money on accessories.

    One should also use an electronic device with dry hands.

    Do you hold your phone out in the rain normally? Most electronic devices aren't waterproof.

    This is Apple's way of making $$. Plus they get to laugh while they are rolling in the dough while we are all here shocking ourselves while attempting to call people.

    It's almost turning into hysteria... Fascinating from a psychological point of view.

    I also get a nasty shock when I put my iPhone on my desk and shuffle my feet on the carpet while walking to the bathroom.

    That never happened until I bought the iPhone 4. ;)

    Don't drinking the kool-aid dude. This is a serious problem. Why else do you think external antenas have come and gone before?

    Because people wanted a stylish phone without a long antenna hanging out of their pocket.

    If this were a serious problem the phone would have never made it through FCC testing.

    This is why I usually don't post in threads like this. :rolleyes:

    Some people need a serious dose of common sense.
