    Considering both this 3G and some of the i4's on youtube showing this have been jailbroken, I wonder if that attributes to the problem.

    Bump, this is important everyone needs to watch this and spread it around and just relax...

    I think gizmodo is really hoping for this story to blow up, they just love for all things iPhone to look bad.

    My phone doesn't do that at all. I updated to iOS4 yesterday and I still have full bars. Don't really know if that's accurate, but the bars are there. lol even when I grasp it, nothing happens.

    that still does not discount the fact that it's a software issue.


    It could be an APP, or a setting, that these specific groups of people are having turned on, or installed that is causing this, and it's obvious it's also related to iOS4.

    it's obviously not an iPHone 4 hardware band problem, if a 3G iPhone is doing the same thing.

    it proves that it is not the new design of the iPhone 4, yet a software problem that is easily fixable by APpple

    this proves A LOT

    The fact that not everyone can reproduce this, does not help the software being the issue, case.

    I am theorizing that some people might have a certain SETTING turned on that is causing all of this. and also iOS4.

    Can't reproduce this on my 3G updated to iOS4. Also, I'm on the edge network (no 3G in my location)

    Ok, just brought my development iPhone (3G - 4.0) out of the black room.

    I cannot, and repeat, cannot reproduce this on this iPhone.

    I tried this at home and was able to recreate these results. At home I have 2 iphone 4's a MacBook Pro connecting via an Airport Extreme BaseStation. I went outside my house away from wi-fi range and was unable to decrease my signal bars. 3g signal was perfect.

    Which doesn't indicates a software issue, but more of a hardware issue, since, that is the component in the system that is not 100% standardised.

    This happens on my 3G with iOS 4. Goes from 5 bars to about 3.

    What???

    So what you're implying is that Everyone with iPhone 3G models and 3Gs models could have had this problem this WHOLE time, but never realized it until now??

    Yes and no. This issue was only reported with the iPhone 4 initially, not when the software was installed on previous generation hardware. It's interesting that no one noticed it, but did notice it on the iPhone 4.

    Each operating environment in the video tests is likely to be different. For me to rule out hardware as an issue, both units must have the exact same hardware, or extremely closely-relating.
