    I have had no reception issues at all, no drop calls either since using iPhone 4. On my end this is a lot better than the 3gs...I'd drop calls all the time. Huge improvement. Had I not seen the thread I never would have known there even was a reception issue.

    Same here. Been trying to reproduce for an hour. Nothing. Had. My wife and buddy try, nothing.At this point I'm not gonna bother. Phone is working great and I'll leave it at that.

    I wouldn't worry

    That's great! So no issues regardless if you hold it with your left or right hand?

    I'm having trouble picking up the 3G frequency. Basic service seems better, overall.

    No problems here. I've been talking on mine all afternoon and no dropped calls. I put it on the table and stood it up straight like the video and no change.

    BTW, my screen doesn't have any yellow spots either. :D

    Not having any issues because I don't wrap my phone in a flesh fist when I'm talking on it.

    I use thumb & two fingers when I'm on the phone, and it isn't causing any reception issues at all.

    Also, it appears as though the issue is an iOS4 issue, not an iPhone 4 issue, as there are videos all over of 3G's etc doing it too after the iOS4 launch.

    Got mine today. Took the wife and I out to dinner. She's got a 3GS.
    Checked and saw my iPhone 4 only had 2 bars, her's only had 2-3 (kept jumping around). When I had full, she had full.
    When her's dropped, mine did the same. So I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. :fingers crossed:

    No problems here. If I cover the antenna, I might lose a bar or two, but that happens with every phone I've ever had. I still get 11-12 Mbps over wifi regardless. I think people are making this into a bigger issue than need be. The fact that not all 4g users are experiencing this should prove that it's not a widespread problem or that it's dependent on the user's network.

    That's all I needed to see. I will now open my iPhone 4 box and activate my new iPhone 4. I will post back if everything works fine. Wish me luck!!

    I've had a couple of hours of call time this afternoon with no reception trouble and no dropped calls moving around town a bit. So far, so good.

    I'm in Miami, I got two iPhone 4's 32GB and I can't get any of them to drop reception no matter how I hold them.

    I am not having that issue, but rather moot since I do have the yellow spot issue. I've got an appt for Fri. Wouldn't it be ironic if they give me a replacement w/ no yellow spots but reception issues.

    My wifemandnimarenhaving some issue in certain locations in our home - but we have had some terrvile storms here in Chicago the last few days and I called AT&T and it turns out that there are several towers down in the area. I am wondering if there large storms sweeping the nation, combined with all the new traffic are Wally the problem. It's just a coincidence.

    I got home from work about an hour and a half ago and my new phone was waiting for me.

    So far I can't find any issues. It seems to be better in every way compared to my 3G, both with reception (wifi and 3G) and every thing else. I'll have a real chance to see what it's made of tomorrow but right now I am more than pleased with how everything is working.

    I have no reception issues whatsoever no matter how I hold the phone. Although, I've never had reception issues on my older iPhones either (I'm in Dallas).

    I also don't have any yellow spots :p

    I have 0 reception issues. Calls sound better and have lasted longer. I'm running in the NYC area. My wifes new phone is running just as great. If you do cradle the phone in your hand the bars will go down. Luckily I don't hold my phone like that when i make a call.

    You know, every year as soon as people get their phones, if there aren't any issues, tons of people don't come back to the forums. So when there's silence either a) everyone's sick of your ****, b) you posted in the wrong forum, or c) no one is having the issues you're talking about/aren't even on the forums anymore.

    With that said, no issues of any kind for me (reception, dead pixels, yellow screen, activation, FedEx stole my phone, etc.).
