Antenna issues may have carried over to Verizon's iPhone 4

Looks like the antenna problems may not have been solved after all, as this video shows evidence that a “death grip” is indeed present on Verizon’s Apple iPhone 4, just as it was on the AT&T version…

This article is crap. As a loyal droid X person and owner of an Iphone 4 Verizon model for work I call BS on this. The antenna works just fine and infact I pull a stronger signal than my droid x in some places. I can death grip my phone to death and nothing happens and calls don't drop. Do you idiots really think they would have spent that long redesigning the phone and not addressing the antenna thing? Phonearena needs to step up its reporting. The BS stories........

When the Storm had problems, Blackberry tried to fix them and released the Storm 2.

When the Droid X had screen issues, Motorola fixed the problem and replaced affeccted handsets.

When the iPhone had a fatal reception problem, Apple blamed it on the customers, then the software, then offered free cases and said the problem was solved.

Whether or not it is solved, the fact remains that Apple showed their true attitude toward their customer base. And the sad truth is that when they pissed on their fans, their fans opened up their mouths, swallowed, thanked Apple for breakfast and then bent over and asked to be spanked.

this guy in the video is full of BS. he puts a grip on it.. and then lets go of it and what does he get?? ONE BAR more than what he had when he had a grip on it. clearly its not the grip. and who holds their phone like that anyways? doesnt look like a very comfortable way to go about it at all. i sure wouldnt.

On the bright side I visited the Apple Store today and tested the AT&T iPhones. The death grip still exists. :)

Hilarious side note: all those crying about "you don't hold it like that!" Where were you when Jobs and co. tried to show the death grip on other phones and had to squeeze them really fucking hard or hold them in weird ways?
