    Just got to thinking this- If anyone watched the keynote, you remember when Steve couldn't get the NYTimes to load on the iPhone4? Maybe he was holding it wrong.:p

    The first phone he was using was on WIFI anyway.

    My friend told me that if he wraps his iPhone in aluminum foil it has better reception...dialing is a pain in the arse but at least he can call someone...

    Doesn't matter the way he was holding it.

    It was a issue with the wifi, "holding the phone wrong" doesn't affect wifi connections on the iphone, only cellular signal.

    Depending on how I hold my phone, I lose some wifi signal too, not just 3g. The phone said "Could not activate cellular network" during the keynote.

    It worked once people shut down their MyFi's or w/e they are called.

    Oh, and the almighty Steve Jobs can never hold it wrong, fyi.

    In deep meditation, Steve has gained the ability to manipulate his body's electromagnetic field.

    Or maybe he held it differently the second time. :D
    Now that I think about it, I don't think it was an antenna issue, but it could still be possible!

    Nope. It was placed on the podium.

    No. He was using BOTH the 3GS and the 4 and neither one worked. And he wasn't holding the iPhone 4 in the way that is claimed makes the signal dropped.
