Just wondering if it's just me, or has the "death grip" issue returned in iOS6? Had no problems when running 5.1.1, but now I can easily kill my signal down to No Service without really trying. Started with the OTA upgrade, and have since reset the phone and restored from iTunes. Odd.

It is odd...

For what it's worth, I never had the grip of death problem with my ip4 since I had it new. Maybe it is because of the way i hold it.

It does seem to depend on how the phone is held. Use it with right hand and it's fine, left hand...not so much. It definitely started again after loading iOS6.

I've always had this issue with the 4. As already said, it's the lower left side of the iPhone that, when covered with you hand, causes it. It's a hardware issue and bound to happen in every version of iOS.
