    So, I am on my 3rd iphone 4 replacement and i still have the 2nd one and I am contemplating holding onto that one and just returning the newer replacement because the new one has an issue with the compass. Every single time I access it, it has to be calibrated, something I never experienced with the 1st and 2nd iPhone 4 I had. Any possible solutions? Could it be hardware? I reset the network settings and nothing. I am reinstalling the software on the phone (restoring it) to see if that helps.

    I've read so many complaints about compass issues on other boards with the 4 that I suspect this can be added to the list of possible problems (about 5th after the antennae issue). Most people don't even use the compass, so they don't test it.

    Others (mine was one), were way off.
