Second replacement, even worth trying for better reception?

    Quick and dirty. Reception problems, happens in low signal areas for me (my house), hardly happens in good signal areas (work).

    Called on day one, Apple was to overnight me a phone. They screwed up and didn't ship it overnight, I bitched, they sent me to the store for a replacement. Replacement does the same thing but I still have the phone they sent coming today. Would you say it's even worth trying the phone out?

    I suppose it's a quick pop of the SIM and test. Just not even sure if it's worth it as I tend to believe this is inherent to the phone until we get a fix.

    The reception "issue" is attributed to the design of the iPhone 4, and not your particular iPhone itself. Wait for a bumper or software update.

    Well I do have a bumper which works well, so I suppose I'll just send it back without testing, probably a waste of time.

    It just arrived, gotta admit I'm tempted to tinker with it when I get home. :)

    Good luck! They replaced mine and still the exact same reception problems! Works great in high signal areas but at home where I'd usually get a few bars I still get searching on the replacement!

    Same here with my original and first replacement, just thought maybe third time would be a charm.

    ;)

    Doubtful, still LOVE the phone.
