    Seems we've got a few people here declaring there is nothing wrong with iPhone 4 and agreeing with Jobs that it's a non-issue.

    When I hold my iPhone in my left hand, the signal is totally lost. That is an issue and it's not fine.

    I'm very happy for the people who's signals are fine or don't mind having to never hold the phone in one hand. But I can't use my new phone when holding it the way I naturally want to. That is an issue and it needs to be resolved. End of.

    It's not like you have to hold the phone upside down with each thumb on opposite corners of the device for it not to work. It doesn't work when held like many people hold it (including Steve Jobs himself as proven by images going around). In fact, there's a good chance that's why he was having issues during the keynote.

    A phone that loses all signal when touched is simply a broken phone. How can that even be debated? So quit posting that it's not an issue because it doesn't effect you.

    May I join :rolleyes:

    no but seriously according to apple its a software issue... I find it hard to believe that a software update can fix something physical -_- OR theyrre just trying to decieve the public by changing the animation of the signal bars to make it look like we have signal when we really don't LOL

    Too late. I have a pounding headache and its all Apple's fault for the way they designed the iPhone 4. Make sure you add "causes migraines" to the list of iPhone defects.

    This is just a thread to counter the one that says it's not an issue. I can't stand the idea of nothing ever bring done about it and it needs all the press and attention it can get.

    There are about 34 threads to counter "the one that says it's not an issue".
