    Tried my hardest but no antenna issue could be replicated.
    No yellow dots on screen issue either.

    Same here. I tried to hold it the way explained in those videos, but I've never been able to duplicate the problem either.

    if your going to rape your phone with your hand you will have issues lol...
    all the videos i see of the signal dropping show them grasping the phone for dear life...I for one do not hold a phone like that..

    I do not have the issue when I'm at my apartment in downtown Los Angeles, or walking/driving around in the area.

    I did have the issue when I was at work in Santa Ana (Orange County) earlier today.

    I can replicate the problem about 1 out of every 10 times I try. I have to grip the phone very hard with my left hand and I can occasionally get it to do it. I don't generally hold my phone with a death grip (or in my left hand for that matter) so I wouldn't say I'm having problems with the reception. I'm perfectly satisfied to this point.

    No problems with mine. I've tried holding it every way I could think of including the way shown on video. I also seem to have a perfect screen. Really happy so far!

    I can't replicate the signal loss plaguing other people, but I do have the yellow screen issue. I have a 16.

    Previously all my friends with iPhones that came into my house were unable to get any kind of reception at all. Leaving me a bit hesitant and reluctant to jump ship to AT&T...however i took the plunge with iPhone4 and am extremely happy! I have been using it at home with roughly 2 bars and have been unable to replicate any of the reception issues. So I to have no problems with antenna here! very pleased with my phone! :D

    I thought I wasn't.. then I was playing solitaire and I noticed the phone had 2 bars. I moved my palm off that lower left area and the bars returned.

    Fortunately, the way I naturally hold my phone when I'm talking leaves this trouble area completely free, so I'm not worried.

    I can replicate the issue, but the way I normally hold the phone doesn't cover that area. And I'm left handed too!

    Well, for me, not only is it uncomfortable to hold my iPhone 4 the way they described; I will definitely get a case as they suggested as soon as they HAVE iPhone 4 CASES that I can purchase! I asked one of the Apple employees (as I was holding a black bumper), "is this the UGLIEST one you've got?" :D

    No issues, in fact the signal on the train to and from work was never this good and consistant on my 3GS.

    I'm one happy traveler.

    Everything's fine with mine, I've tried pretty hard a few different times and can't replicate the issue and I know at least four people with the new phone and they don't have the issue as well.

    Either way I don't know anyone that has a death grip like that on their phone when actually using it and most people I know with iPhones have a case on it. Seems like a very vocal minority to me :/

    No antenna issues here. I've actually noticed improved signal strength. I've held the iPhone4 away and close to the ear - and no signal issues. I think these comments are being fueled by haters.
