RELAX! it's a software issue! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84Lpt2YkF3Q
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.
Not sure this proved anything aside from the fact that it does this on any iPhone.
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.
noting happens when i grab my 3gs.
fail, on to the next one...dig it
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
i could not reproduce this issue on my 3GS.... but i really hope its a software issue because my iPhone 4 comes in tomorrow and this antenna issue and the color spots have me very worried.. just hoping for the best right now.
Agreed, it's related to iOS4
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.
"k I'm gonna attempt to do this with my other hand."
That's what she said...
Can't reproduce this on my 3G updated to iOS4. Also, I'm on the edge network (no 3G in my location)

Hey i just did the same thing on my 3gs. I dont know how but this has to be a software problem.
Here's a video of a 3Gs doing it.
Ok, just brought my development iPhone (3G - 4.0) out of the black room.
I cannot, and repeat, cannot reproduce this on this iPhone.
There are however people doing it on 3G's
and also 3Gs's
and there's videos of each.
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.
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??
3Gs here, can not do it no matter what with iOS4.
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.
