    Probably already figured out and posted, but I've noticed that touching the top black line kills WiFi.

    Such a shame these signal issues because the phone is a home run otherwise IMO.

    so its my understanding that the iPhone only works 100% that was it suppose to when its in your pocket or sitting on your desk.

    I would be shocked if this was actually a widespread issue, unlike the cell signal issue which obviously is real.

    I can touch anywhere on my phone and verify in real time that the WiFi signal does not change even 1db (using Airport Utility). I do have almost immediate and total cell signal loss if I touch the left band.

    More evidence of windmill chasing.

    I think touching the speaker kills gaming, I was playing Tiger Woods and hit the ball into the bunker when I touched the speaker. Quick, let's make a YouTube video and spread BS all over the internet about this "flaw". :mad:

    If Apple took more time to create a device that worked (regardless of where you touch it) it wouldn't be a problem! Some people paid 800 bucks! Don't you think if you're going to pay that much it should be PERFECT????

    Well mileage may vary, but it is 100% reproducible on my phone. I haven't checked the airport utility but I don't really need to. Bars drop to zero and can no longer load pages. Remove finger, 5 seconds or so later and I'm back in business.

    lol, windmill chasing. Go back to the other thread and defend your asinine statements instead of accusing someone who's clearly being sarcastic of 'chasing windmills.'

    Pathetic.

    It's great that Apple can make millions of dollars off of their mistake, and then only offer the solution in one color until further notice.

    The OP is BS'ing. Obviously just trying to be funny due to all the reception threads. Do not take this post as fact or truth.

    Complaints so far:
    -Holding the phone with your left hand = Signal Drop

    -Touching the top of the top black lines = Kills WiFi

    -If you touch the antenna band with sweaty hands = You will be Shocked (literally) (yes, someone did post on this board that they have been shocked when then picked up phone with wet hands)

    -Touching the front of the lens = Black pictures (this one was just for fun, but still true)

    No I'm dead serious. Could just be my phone, but it is happening with 100% reproduction right now.

    And just to clarify for the numb nuts who will inevitably post - I'm not bitching/complaining/whatever. I'm simply posting my experience.

    Airport extreme. Believe it is on the allow b/g setting even though everything on my network is n.
