First off: I know this is my decision, just looking at peoples opinions. Second off: PLEASE no one that's just going to say 'I hav had no problems with the phone, it's perfect!' As this is a real issue, I'm glad that wherever you live you are getting good signal, I just hope you never go traveling. Basically I'm not happy with apples whitewash or sugar coating of the problem, fact it the problem is hardware, they designed the phone badly and are now scrambling to try and mask that. Speed tests don't lie. I mostly use my phone for texting/Internet, I barely even use my phone for phonecalls, in the last year I have probably made about 5 hours of calls, that is if I don't include my last girlfriend (now ex) who liked to phone me the minute I left her and then fall asleep on the phone at night -_- So how much is this problem effecting messages? If at all? I can probably live with using headphones for calls to completely eradicate the problem with signal and the proximity sensor (which I hope they address in the patch/update) What I really want the new iPhone 4 for is the new camera, because let's face it the 3gs camera sucks and as a photography student it's nice to not always have to bring a dslr everywhere. (I know a camera phone will never be as good as a dslr, I'm not stupid) I was really holding Apple would adress the problem and not just try and hide it, dissapointng really.
