    How's this for a statement? Every iPhone 4 built to date has the reception defect!

    Prove me wrong by showing two iPhone 4's side by side, one showing the defect and one not. Until then it's obvious that the people that think they have a perfect iPhone haven't been in a bad location yet.

    My two friends thought their phones were fine until we were all sitting around the same porch last night and no one could use the internet while holding their phone. :)

    Just as I suspected. People believe what they want to believe. :)

    I thought I didn't have this problem as I couldn't replicate it by holding it in my left hand like other people did but I found that if I put my thumb on the left black strip and my forefinger on the right black strip then I am able to replicate this problem! Doesn't bother me too much as I will never hold it in this position when I'm using it normally and it doesn't lose all of the 5 bars, usually just 3, sometimes 4, I'm always left with at least 1 bar singal anyway and I've not had any dropped calls as of yet.

    I can categorically say I've not had any problems reception-wise. I've actually not had a problem.

    I'm massively saddened for those who've been affected by it, as it ruins the whole hype this phone has generated, but I don't think us lucky ones need to prove that we're with a phone which works as it should.

    I absolutely don't have the problem..... At work (as I initially reported)

    At home I 100% have it now, so yeah i think they all have it too.

    If you have to work hard. Using a key plus going to places you don't rarely go to so you can get a signal that is bad just so you can say your iPhone is bad. And prove that we all have this issue

    Dude then the experiment is a fail.

    There are quite a few videos on YouTube w/ iPhones that do not lose reception w/ the pinch.

    I'm the same. At work I'm fine which is probably down to the fact that we have a phone mask in our car park! At home I can lose all signal. This clearly shows that it's a location problem so all these people testing in one location and saying their phone is perfect are just kidding themselves.

    No need to prove it, my wife and I have one and they work perfect for me. And that's enough.

    That's pointless unless there is another iPhone in the same picture which shows a defect. Read the original post again.

    I'm not going to prove it, because I don't have to, nor do I have the time.

    I can tell you there are two iPhone 4s in my home. One is a 16 GB and one is a 32 GB, not that that should matter.

    I can lie them both on the table and they have exactly same number of bars. I can replicate the issue on the 32 GB and bring it down to almost no signal. I cannot replicate the issue on the 16GB even though they are right next to each other. I've tried to place my hand all over the silver bars but the signal stays strong on the 16 GB.

    I honestly believe some have the issue and some don't. Whats the difference? I don't have a clue.

    ANYWHERE? Wow you've covered the whole world? I guess that's all the evidence we need.

    So in other words you reject the reality of the situation and substitute your own. Sorry to break it to you but some of us have phones that for whatever reason do not exhibit the reception issue. I'd show you with mine but I only own one phone so that is a fail to you from the start.

    No you don't have to prove it but I would ask kindly that you do. It would really help clarify once and for all. You would be the first person (that I know of) to do this.

    I'm not having the reception strength issue, but dropped calls inside and out (in the same places my 3G worked without issue).. The proximity sensor bug is actually more of an issue but likely easier to fix, perhaps in the update rumored on monday..

    I don't reject any reality. It's people like you who accuse people of holding a phone incorrectly! All I'm saying is provide some proof, as of yet no one has been able to and I expect that to remain the same.

    Who is using a key and should you not be able to go anywhere? I wasn't told where I could and couldn't go with my new iPhone...

    I accused someone of holding a phone wrong? Please enlighten me. When did I do this?

    Look I don't doubt some people have this issue, but you need to come to grips that others do not have this issue.

    I said people like you, not you. You may wish to re-read my post.

    I will come to grips with that fact once it has been proven. So far it hasn't.

    Even if I wanted to prove it, I can't. My only video cameras are on the iPhones.

    Use the camera on each one, it will be obvious that it's the same location. Do you have two iPhone 4's that show different results to the reception defect then? I would love to see it.
