The iphone 4 antenna is flawed. I will admit that. Having a case or bumper fixes it and will make the reception the same as a 3Gs or older iPhone. So lets go back in time and say that Apple just releases the news about the new Iphone 4 again. Everything is the same but they say that every iPhone 4 will be shipped with a bumper. Apple recommends that you have the bumper on your iPhone 4 at all times and if you don't have the bumper on that you may lose calls in areas without good reception. The new iPhone was designed to work with the new bumper. If you choose not to use it, your phone calls may suffer. Would you still buy it? Lets not debate if they could have made a better design and what they did wrong with this version. Just flat out tell us if you would buy one knowing you would have to have a case or bumper installed on it for it to work.
