    I know I will be. I have been a die hard apple fan for years now, but im not gonna stick with a company that says "deal with it".

    Now for me the signal issue is actually an issue, I dont get great signal in my NYC apartment as is, so having even less signal when holding it isn't an option. As much as I wanna stay on the iPhone I cant, and I really dont wanna downgrade back to the 3GS so to android I go.

    Don't get me wrong, im depressed as hell about the move, but I just cant stick by a company (the iDevice part of it at least) that refuses to admit there is a real design flaw.

    This thread is about me actually wondering how many people feel that same way, so if all your going to do is say "good riddance, we didnt want you anyways" save it because its really not useful.

    DISCLAIMER: While I am angry about the iPhone, I still believe Mac OS X and the computers that run it, kick the pants off any Windows machine, so while ill be switching phone OS's I will never been switching computer OS's

    Hell no! It's amazing! The death grip is so hard to reproduce, I think it's kinda ridiculous that people are making such a big deal. You have to hold it soo tightly and soo awkwardly...

    Possibly. What new features will it have?

    Reception reliability you say? Pfft.

    You clearly do not understand the issue that some phones have a major problem with this. I just started a thread showing pictures of how I lose all five bars when I grab it and my hand is touching the side. It loses its signal far too easily.

    Simple fix, return the phone and get one that meets your needs

    You can't imagine brand loyalty. Since the first, I've had them all. I've owned other "top-notch" phones as well, and I didn't like them. The Android Market has far too few GOOD applications. Palm Pre's alright, but the OS needs a lot of work.

    If the phone is unusable for you, return it. Has nothing to do with brand loyalty

    Same here. I’d only return it if I started having problems, which is what I’ve done with any iPhone I had (headphone jack issue - returned, no wifi -returned).

    I have had far too many calls dropped when, not thinking, I shift the way I'm holding the phone to the bottom half.....causing, well, you know.

    Yeah....if they don't announce a recall (which I'm expecting they won't), I'll be taking mine back to the AT&T store over the next few days. Really stinks too because I really want to like it. But when your phone sucks at being a phone the rest of the bells and whistles tend to take a back seat (at least to me). Guess I'll take a look at the upcoming Blackberry 9800.

    It pains me also but I may have to return it too. My signal in my apartment has been going downhill lately in addition to all this. Now I'm dropping more calls and having proximity sensor issues.

    I hate how tempting it is because Verizon has awesome service here :(

    If your problems are confined like that you'd probably benefit from a Microcell.

    Nope, flawless phone here. Got the second batch and can't replicate the loss of signal even with the death grip

    Already done. Best decision I ever made. Not dropping calls is not supposed to be a feature but it is one my new phone has!

    They can have my iP4 when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    No, because no other phone will meet my expectations even with this phones reception issue.

    Nope. Spent an hour with the Droid X tonight. Couldn't wait to go back to my iPhone.
