Why does it take 2 weeks to do one stupid mathematical equation to calculate the signal and how many bars to show? Oooohhh I know.. Because they want people to keep buying their faulty product. For anyone who has 4 or 5 bars righ now, you actually have 2 or 3 bars.. Is basically what apple is saying. THEY TRIED TO MAKE THE PHONE LOOK LIkE IT HAD BETTER RECEPTION THAT IT REALLY DOES BY TWEAKING THE CALCULATION IN THE FIRST PLACE! It's now come back to bite them in the ass. Don't feel sorry for them. Don't stick up for them to trying to trick people into thinking true signal is stronger than it actually is! Just feel sorry for whoever decided to play with the equations in order to make this phone appear to have better reception because I'm sure they got fired.

WTF are people crying about its an iPhone if your not happy then the next time something new comes out keep you punk ass home and wait until the reviews come and disclose the bugs. If you went from another carrier to AT&T Hey that was your fault next time think before you do something! The article says substantial loss, really? $19 is a substantial loss? C'mon Man! Some people just need to take responsibility of their own actions! Yea I got my 4G two days before realease date the signal cuts out it has all the typical AT&T issues but i chose to buy it! But I still love my 4G! All you cry babies STFU!

Actually wouldnt it be more like 40 or 50 bucks, since 199 is your price after the att discount? and the restocking fee is 10% of original price?

Thats because its ILLEGAL in the UK to charge a re-stocking fee on ANY purchace .. Know your consumer rights .. if in doubt GOOGLE is your friend :)..

what about if the phone was bought from a retailer, like Best Buy. you would return to that store correct, and any restocking fees they impose would still be valid?

the only problem is that i wend from Verizon to att and att going to take my activation fee plus now if i go back to Verizon i will have to sign a contract and pay activation fee so what good is this im stuck with att ....

go back to Verizon, you wont have to pay another activation fee because you came back in 90 days return your ATT iphone and wait for the Verizon iPhone in January

What a strange, strange issue. I have noticed the holding attenuation change but do not personally regard it as a problem. In fact, imho, the newest iphone of the family has fewer real-dysfunction issues and is more functional, practically speaking, out-of-the-box with better aesthetics than prior models. I could only reproduce the antenna effect only few occasions but that may be fully dependent on where i live. Anywho, everyone in the family with the new iphone has purchased a case ( no one wanted bumpers) and was going to do so from the moment the phone was taken out of the box. Yet, i had never had a utilized a case with the other 3 prior models for me personally, but everyone else in the family has-- therefore, i can empathize with anyone who insists on going neked with their new iphone 4. Personally, i don't trust myself not to ever drop this new phone and not break something. Cases are cheap. Bumpers probably not. It's all relative. To each their own. Glad at least Apple has provided a way out for those that dissatisfied with the iphone 4. It's always a little bit more reassuring to have the option.

Ok, so where can I get a refurb iPhone 4?
phucpholuc - July 2, 2010 at 7:57pm
yeah, no kidding. Someone's loss is your gain. Refurb phones will probably show up on Apple store online first but probably not until they get a significant number of units returned and probably not until Apple screen out the units for any actual defects. They may not even release any refurb units until the next software update.

This will never happen. You'll never find ANY apple product refurbished being sold by apple. Where do you think all old Mac computers suddenly disappear when new line comes out. I think they simply destroy it or reuse for parts only

Dude what are you talking about? there are plenty of apple refurbished products being sold at Apple Online store....not any iphone though..... http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/specialdeals/ipod?mco=OTY2ODY4NQ
