    So if you got yours in the 1st 2-3 weeks and are not satisfied at that point tuff titty :D

    Mine comes around July 15th, so that gives a couple of more weeks in the return time frame if necessary

    Please READ the letter.

    The fix doesnt fix anything! Wake up people! They don't even claim it will do ANYTHING for reception. REDUCING the number of bars will make it seem worse.

    I know people don't want to hear it or maybe can't understand it.

    THERE IS NO SIMPLE FIX. ITS A HARDWARE DESIGN ISSUE.

    Apple will NOT fix it.

    RETURN THE PHONE NOW. Apple said so!

    Apple knows DAMN well what they are doing. If you look back at the .01 release for 2.0 and 3.0, you will see that Apple releases the .01 releases two weeks after the new OS comes out. A few more weeks, huh? Apple is so full of it.


    [sarcasm/] I love this "appearance" fix they are about to make.

    Lousy product not worth of the Apple brand. People don't buy Apple products so they can buy 'faulty' products.

    And Apple is lying. They're "shocked" that they put in code earlier to make the bars seem higher. That was the big fix they did on the iPhone 3G when people complained about poor reception. It was the 5 bars almost all the time fix.

    Now they're "shocked" to discover they wrote it that way. Like someone broke into Apple headquarters and secretly wrote the code to make the iPhone look like it was getting better reception than it was.

    How gullible do they think people are.
    Apparently lots of iPhone 4 buyers really are.

    RETURN THE PHONE! Apple said so!

    Isn't this just reversing the "fix" they put in place when the 3G was showing lower signal than everyone expected??

    Anybody else remember that "software fix" for the last reception issue?

    This really seems like a smokescreen to me. They can get away with releasing a "fix" that more accurately displays the bars. This way, everything they've said is still true. My guess is there actually is some software change that can help (maybe not fix) this, and they'll put it in this update. They just aren't going to tell us that because then they have to admit that there ARE signal issues.

    All the fix is going to do is change the bars that are displayed. It won't change how your reception actually is.

    If your phone isn't working for you now, it won't work for you after the update, return it.

    If your phone works for you now, it will still work after the update, keep it.

    Simple as that. 30 day return window is a non issue.

    I'm happy with mine, I use the subway a lot and am used to times of no signal.

    Anyway. Just like the doctor says, if your eye hurts when you poke it, don't poke it!

    Good for you, you get yours soon.

    If people are upset enough about the reception issues they can return the device now.

    My reading comprehension is just fine, thanks. I'm merely responding to more mindless crying overall.

    Take it to Apple after the fix comes out (assuming it's hardware) and they'll replace it.

    What a novel idea :rolleyes:!
