    Is it best to not buy the phone on launch day due to possible defects? ex. iphone 4 call drop issue.

    If your new iPhone is defective, Apple will replace it

    You got a year warranty if there's something wrong with it.
    This first batch 2nd batch thing doesnt make sense.
    All my iphone's have been so called "1st batch" and all worked great with no probs.

    The only reason to wait is to see if any problems arise that will not be fixed in subsequent batches. That is to say, wait and see if there is a problem with the phone that is huge enough for you not to want to get one, ever.

    My only example with the iPhone is that antenna issue. Plenty of early adopters were upset about that, and especially with Apple's answer to the problem.

    Pretty much the same for all new products.

    Some want it NOW. Some want it soon. Some want to let it get a bit or road test first to feel better.

    Any or all of these are correct.

    Depends on where you stand.
