    People called, people complained, Apple told us a fix was coming...

    I am a devout Apple devotee but their lack of response to these issues are really making me mad. I bought a case to make my $700 phone work properly, and now I can't hold the phone to my head without pressing buttons or being deafened by a lack of the phones volume control. Did they do any QA testing on this device before selling millions? How long to they expect us to wait for a fix?

    It'll come out around the 23rd or 24th when a large chunk of people will be out of the 30-day return window so Apple doesn't lose money when people realize the fix didn't fix anything

    Yep $700. Apple screwed up my upgrade with my online order and I wasn't eligible for an upgrade when I bought it in store. I paid $700 plus CA tax (9.75%) for my 32GB.

    Troll? Get a life.

    Eh, pay no attention to fanboys, they attack at any non apple praising post. As for your question, apple said it would be a couple of weeks from their statement which was last Friday, so we don't really know when it's coming but it has only been a week.

    Why do you want a fix so bad that will just show you that you are getting crappy reception?

    Well, I guess you got ripped off. I guess my two $399 16gig "early upgrades" on the $39 plan from Apple was a mistake as was my Brother-in-law's and my niece's and her boyfriend's too. :cool: The 32gig was $499 on the "early upgrade." Your $700 bargain was the no-contract unsubsidized price. ..

    You did not specify what phone you had before hand. According to Att you can not upgrade more than once in a 18 month period unless you spend enough to offset the cost or residual of the phone in question, which generally means family plan or a higher priced package. I am not saying you did not get the early upgrade, I am just saying there is another variable missing from your statement.

    You'll wait until they release it. Simple as that, really.

    Didn't buy the first iPhone did you. Had to stand in line and pay $600 for it.

    I can reduce my signal to nothing with one finger, how do you think a software update is going to fix a problem like that :rolleyes:

    How are you checking that you are reducing your signal. I can make my phone drop bars but I've yet to be able to drop a call from it.

    So you are having a data problem and not voice? Does the data and voice use the same antenna?

    I see my bars drop but haven't had a problem with voice yet (knock on wood) and haven't really paid attention to data.

    Just wondering how people are checking that they are losing reception. I can drop bars but that means nothing.......as long as I get a digital signal and can make calls it doesn't matter how many bars I have.

    Once again, anyone who has a 32GB iPhone 4 has paid or will pay about $700 for it. It doesn't make much difference whether you pay for it upfront or through inflated monthly fees over the life of your contract.

    Not had a call drop yet but then I've only had it a few hours.

    I dropped it to no bars and it received a call ok so can't say whether its an issue for voice.

    However for data it is. I ran a speed test with full signal which seemed about average for what I was getting on my 3GS. Then again with my index finger bridging the gap so there was no signal and the throughput died.

    So you actually made $260 on buying a new phone, is that it?

    Software takes time to write, test, debug, and validate. If they rush something out with bugs it would be much more backlash than taking the extra time to get it right.
