OF COURSE THEY WILL NOT CHANGE THE DESIGN! *facepalm*Do you realize the backlash of current ip4 owners that would FLIP if that were the case? And the litigation (you know this word? Want to make sure since you clearly ate paint chips as a child) that Apple would open themselves up to?
THEY WILL NOT CHANGE THE DESIGN ON THE CURRENT IPHONE MODEL...EVER! Not until ip5, ip4s, or whatever.

Even if they were to put a clear coat or something on the antenna of the white ip4 IT WOULD STILL BE A DESIGN CHANGE BECAUSE IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT THEN MY BLACK IP4OF COURSE THEY WILL NOT CHANGE THE DESIGN! *facepalm*
A silent small hardware fix isn´t going to change the design. People who bought the first batch don´t have the right to complain, they got free bumpers!
But they are still probably going to be quite pissed
