Steve Jobs Says \'There is no reception issue. Stay tuned.\'

A MacRumors forum member claims to have heard from Steve Jobs who says there is no reception issue and to 'stay tuned'.

Earlier today I tried calling in to Apple Care to see if I could get a bumper case to help with my reception issues. Nobody I spoke with could help me out. So I decided to send the boss man an email, kiss ass a little bit and see what the result would be. He emailed me back in literally 2 minutes! Here's the email:

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that this is the most amazing phone I've ever owned. Facetime is incredible! Everything is fantastic except the reception issues I've been having. My buddy has the same issue and he called AppleCare and was shipped a free bumper case. I called too, 2 hours and 3 dropped calls later, I was told that nobody is getting free bumpers. Which is strange because I saw my friends email confirmation showing he was getting a free one. I tried to get one on launch day but the store was sold out. Is there anything you or one of your executive escalations people can do? I love everything about the phon eexcept my signal issues. I hope to hear back with good news.

Thanks

Mark

If this correspondence is authentic then perhaps there may be a software issue involved after all...

I bought it, It\'s a really good phone. No reception issue for me, maybe I have magic hands ? My screen is not yellow too. If you don\'t like it, don\'t buy it but stop shitting on it !!!

Welll actually this will be a software issue persay......right now the software is set to run the phone radio to one plate on the side and run wifi/bluetooth from the other. all they would have to do is reprogram the radio in the software to run all 3 in both plates and thus your hand connecting the 2 plates would have no effect since it would be conducting the same signals to the other plate. makes since to me, they just need to hurry up and do it before it effect there sales.

Why didn\'t they just do that from the beginning? Won\'t that decrease battery performance? Won\'t they have to go back to the FCC to get the SAR rating redone?

I think the only rational answer from a person who uses ration, is that it was too late in re production and design process to change things. Hence the bumper! Lets make more money being these idiots are still going to buy the phone anyways. Now they\'ll just want a bumper to go along with it. Think rationally people; apple is not a make believe company from la la land that does everything right all the time. They are simply a business that is starting to lose touch with it\'s competitors like nokia, motorola, and google.

Reception issues is a fucking marketing trick!! Do you really think that apple did not test the phone in every posible way?
