    Where left hand = "death grip"

    BEFORE (on 4.0)

    Right hand: 2285 kb download, 99 kb upload
    Left hand: 636 kb download, 53 kb upload

    AFTER (on 4.0.1)

    Right hand: 909 kb download, 94 kb upload
    Left hand: 232 kb download, 25 kb upload


    This is all on the 3G network. At this point, Apple BETTER do something about this tomorrow. If this is their "fix," it's a complete fail. Where I used to have 5 bars, I now have 3. And since I updated to 4.0.1, I've never had full 3G reception.

    Less bars in more places. Thanks Apple. If you haven't updated yet, I'd suggest against it.

    Who said it was going to fix the signal problem?

    It adjusted the bar display. That's all. They never said it would fix any antenna problem.

    Dude when were the two test done? back to back?

    The only accurate way to have done this would be two iphone 4s one with 4.0 and the other with 4.0.1....

    As for the bars the whole point of this update is that you never actually had 5 bars... your signal isn't worse it just stopped lying to you.

    What he is saying is that it made the problem worse. When he was deathgripping before the update he was having faster 3g speeds on speedtest than deathgripping after the update.

    That's impossible unless the update blew up some nearby towers.

    Exactly. I didn't expect this to solve the signal problem - no one said it would.

    What I'm saying is...NO ONE expected 4.0.1 to make it worse. DRAMATICALLY worse, for that matter.

    Actually, every speed test I've done has always resulted in slower speeds after the first one, even on my old 3GS and before 4.0. Try switching servers.

    And: Don't blame the update for having less bars. You've always had less bars. The meter was just more optimistically calibrated, previously.

    The true test is whether you drop calls or lose service.

    the update didn't change anything with 3g speed :confused: it was a display patch

    He is saying that with absolutely no scientific way of backing it up, is the problem.

    The original (4.0) speed test was done 3-4 days ago.

    The 4.0.1 test was conducted 15 minutes ago or so. Then waited about 20 minutes and conducted it with the "death grip"

    Me, too. Seems pretty useless as a tool.

    You're kidding, right? Maybe you didn't notice the real FACTS. The dramatic decrease in kb for both downloading and uploading.

    Then it's DEFINITELY not accurate. Speed on any 3G network can be great one day, and lousy the next. I'm a laptop card user and know this through experience. You should've done a speed test right before you upgraded, and right after.

    This could be true. I don't claim these to be scientific, tested results. It's just what the app tells me.

    Where left hand = "death grip"

    Right hand: 949 kb download, 72 kb upload
    Left hand: 550 kb download, 41 kb upload

    AFTER (on 4.0.1)

    Right hand: 2585 kb download, 140 kb upload

    Its pretty awesome, I thought apple was just doing a tweak for the display but they actually made the 3D speeds faster!! omg

    Exactly the network could just be more clogged now than it was 3-4 days ago when you tested.
