    Giz has their own reasons for publicizing the iPhone 4's faults. Best friend got his phone today, reception's good, screen looks fantastic... He's very happy. I would have gotten one, had they had white!

    What a coincidence... Gizmodo just happens to "accidentally" break the glass on an iPhone 4 on launch day.

    Yeah, a friend of mine called me to ask about my iPhone 4 and if I was experiencing any of the above stated problems, but all I could say was that I was having the time of my life. After going through the first iPhone; the second 3G and the third 3GS, the iPhone 4 is definitely my favorite. No problems with mine...:cool:

    no doubt, the iphone looks and performs great... but all these other reports are real... it's not just gizmodo, there are other articles with the same problems, other users complaining of these problems.. mostly hardware related.
    For these reports/articles/youtube videos to have come out so early, it means they come from apple fans and those who pre-order really early... So they are not anti-apple complaints..

    I have already seen it in person, and the iphone is a beauty. I like the front more than the back or any of the sides. the sound is so much better too..

    dont let the internet sway you. alot of nitpickers. After buying one today for the girlfriend the thing is amazing zero issues. I studied tvs for like 5 months before buying one. the internet had me going crazy with defects and issues etc. once i finally jumped and bought one it was fantastc. people on the internet made huge deals out of little things. dont let it stop you from enjoying this amazing phone.

    I think some of these cases are legit, but as with any newly introduced Apple product, ppl criticize it to death...ppl even look for reasons for it to be flawed. There's gonna be 600,000 iphones in a matter of weeks......do the amount of delivered iphones even have legit claims???? i think it's too premature to conclude......but we like concluding ehehehe

    Despite the torrent of complains from the forums and tech blogs, you have to realize that the vast majority of new iPhone 4 owners have no idea or experience with the problems that have surfaced. If I had not been reading these forums, I would not have known about any of them since my iPhone has no yellow spots nor would I have noticed any problem with reception since I don't hold the phone like that and use a case.

    I'm not saying the problems don't exist. I'm not even saying Apple shouldn't be addressing them. Nevertheless, there are THOUSANDS of new iPhone 4 owners out there having fun and enjoying their new phones without issue.

    It's no excuse, but in our fast-moving tech society, products come and go and there are always issues with popular devices. Despite Steve Jobs' initial response, if these issues become big enough, Apple will address them properly.

    No problems here. I took my phone with me to work and used it to make some calls making sure that I held it the way Steve says to not hold it and my calls never dropped.

    Screen is perfect and about the only thing I miss now is my 3G Unrestricter. Tried buying iMovie while at work only to be told that I needed WiFi. I haven't seen that warning in over a year.

    The problem is Apple makes such great stuff. When someone finds something they think it "wrong" with it, its big news. OMG Apple messed something up??!!?!

    If someone made a video of a Droid or some Motorola POS losing signal no one would give a *****. People go into buying those things knowing they will suck and have problems so no one even bothers to listen or care.

    Same here!! Awesome battery too!! What;'s do u think!! Apple selling millions in a hurry and the glue has not vaporizes yet. The heat on the glue is on the brand spanking new ones are showing a small yellow effect. It will go away in a couple days. Get a strong case for those who have slippery hands or big hands. This way, you want drop the phone or drop calls!@!

    Apple gets both media on them easily!! So, people calm down and use the phone for a week. then scream!! or be happy!!

    Glad you laughed at that because thats what I was hoping for.

    If the button bothers you, bring it back. I would.

    Of all the things you mentioned the antenna problem seems to be the only one serious. Yellow spots? it should go away itself. No white phone? There'll be one eventually. Weak glass back? I bet if Giz drop Droid X the same way it'd break the whole damn phone.

    mine is also wiggly a little bit. I'm definitely gonna get a replacement now. Does anyone know how that works? Can I just walk in to the apple store and show them the problems it has (dropped bars, wiggly home button) and see if they can give me a replacement? or do I have to call first? Also, how much time do I have, only 14 days?

    No you have a year. You make an appt at your apple store for genius bar and walk in, show problems. Only problems now are replacements wont be around for awhile, and the minor problems you have now could get bigger if you get a replacement that has yellow blobs or stuff..

    Alright then, thanks. I guess I was confused, I think the 14 days is for a return/refund.
