For any other company this would be a catastrophe. I can't wait to see how Jobs can turn this lemon into lemonade. It's probably not a bad idea to wait several months before I upgrade. I see the possibility of a recall on this model. As for iOS 4... what a disappointment. I really don't a huge leap in performance or productivity.

Buy the new app for the iPhone4, called iUpsideDown, then flip your springboard upside down, this leaves the two "gapped" areas on "top", and not blocked. You know, that can't be an original Steve Jobs reply. I was expecting a.... "no"

Yeah, I am with you. I have planned on getting the bumper case from the start.. but that is a dumb response.

It will affect you too ! The bumper case won't help, the hand is still conductive and is covering a rather huge area around the phone. It is not like a metallic key that inspite of being very conductiove is rather small compared to your normal hand.

I own the iPhone 4 and currently haven't had a problem as of yet. It could possibly be the fact that I bought the bumper for it and put it on at the store but I've have full 3G reception with no failures.

This issue is for when you actually touch the metal antennae where the notch is; thus bridging the connection between the two.

I guess that confirms the hardware issue! Thanks SJ.

It's true in regard to reception drop while covering the antenna, but if the design make it so easy to loose connection while holding the phone in a comfortable fashion, it's a pretty dumb design if you ask me. How bad is the reception drop if held normally? -5dBm or 1 bar, I say suck it up, use a damn bluetooth. It's more drastic, we may have a lemon with this glass that seems almost more breakble than the previous models.

Apple and Steve Jobs are really starting to get on my nerves with their holier than thow attitude. This phone is not revolutionary, is built on hype, is playing catch up with competition, and now there there is a flaw, they have the audacity to respond in this matter. You iFanboy faggots can live in the clostets of deceptions, lies, false hopes, and fake gods all you want. Google will overtake apple in every sense of their business... Simply because of the arrogrance and Nazi like tyrant of mr jobs

I think Mr. Jobs needs to offer a formal apology for how he handled that email. He's not just speaking for himself but for Apple as a whole and for its investors. There is a lot of ways he could of handled that email and he chose the worst way. As an iPhone fanatic, I was taken back by what he said and it would seriously make me consider getting the iPhone 5 (already have the 4) if this is going to be his attitude to his screw ups.

Could you imagine he closed with this new easter egg at his keynote.. AND THERES ONE MORE THING... IF you hold the iphone in your left hand, and accidentally cover the bottom left corner of the phone, you lose all reception... Its magical... lol PS, iPhone Roadie since 2G, and plan on getting the iPhone4
