They never admit faults in any of their products. That is a fact of life.

Well if you were running a high end company, I think you'd want to come out with a statement like this. I think we should just give it time and the more people that run into this problem, the more likely they will issue a new statement.

Wow, bend over much? I know that if I just dropped a wad on what's to be expected " good phone" ID want it to work. It's ok, apple counts on following sheep like you, people they can run over with bullshit service and half ass answers to serious problems. You can have em.

I can wrap my fingers nice and tight around my motorola droid and never lose a bar. this is absurd, and if apple gets away with their response of "you have to hold the phone differently" then the mind control process will be complete

All you idiots will just jump on any little thing you can to hate on Apple. Yea it's a flaw, but it's not like it's a flaw that has no resolution. I get it I get it, it sounds like a big deal. The funny thing is none of you fucking haters have ever even USED the phone. You're bitching about something that you have no personal hands on experience with. I've read tons of sites that say they have no issues at all unless they are holding the phone while cupping their entire hand on it which they point out is obviously not how most people hold their phone anyway. They had to DELIBERATELY try to get it to drop calls in order for it to do just that. Nearly EVERYONE is praising how it doesn't drop calls in areas they had problems with previous iPhone models I'm so sick of you idiots babbling about a phone you've never had ANY experience with. Get a life.

acually have had an experice with this phone its horrible comlete loss of all individuality with this device, its for the simple one track minded populas out in the world and since its a HARDWARE issue not a software issue yea the resoulotion for it is to buy a case or wait till they fix it ... you should have to buy a case for your phone to work, or for that matter hold your phone in a different matter, this just goes to show how ppl who feel they need a iphone to be cool will jump when steve jobs says jump

I've had experience with the itoy in all of its iterations and can tell you first hand its a piece of crap! Signal dropping because of the way you hold it? That's bad for business. Even a mindless sheep such as yourself can see this. And if you can't see it, kindly remove your head from Steve Jobs' ass and then maybe you'll see it.

I am a big apple fan but i think it is ridiculous for me to hold my phone in a certain way for it to work.... nah i won't support apple on that one, they either start shipping free cases to those guys that already bought it until the fix the flaws in it.. thats my own opinion.

I-Phone users should have got one of the dozens of nice HTC phones (I have had most of them over the years all the way back to the first smartphones they made ) I have never had problems with any of the HTC phones. The reason people pay so dearly for apple products is they (apple) are such good salesmen and have the world convinced that apple is better than anything else, I find it truly amazing that they can keep up that charade in light of all the evidence to the contrary

Good luck at getting Apple to give you something for free. I see their point though: You wanted to be the 1st ones to have the iphone 4????? You wanted to be the guinea pigs???? The test dummies??? well then BOHICA baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So much for all the idiots claiming that this site is pro-apple.. Regarding the issue - if this is indeed just that small black spot between the silver metal bands - then thats not that much of a big deal..

Yes phones in the past have had small defects just like the iphone4. But theres a huge difference between screen issues like the EVO(and iphone4 with yellow spots) and accidently bridging annettas and disconnecting ur calls instantly. Remember ppl all these devices are suppose to be phones first...

The antenna thing is a much bigger issue. Thats like HTC deciding to put the microphone on the back and saying "your holding it wrong". This isn't a small manufacturing defect or resolvable software issue, this is a design mistake that is really not fixable. You can't just return your device for a new one or wait a week for a software patch. If my cars paint came off under sunlight, I just can't see ford saying "park it in a garage or go buy a cover".

First off N1 3g issues was a tmo thing... i and several friends all have att N1 versions and have never had issues. Now maybe there was a prob and htc fixed it by the time this version launched or maybe there was never an actual prob with the phone to begin with. The evo has some isolated issues that are easily resolved... but still apple's whole thing is "experience and usability" and as the name implies this is still an iPHONE. There should be no excuse for losing service and dropping calls because you are "holding" your phone. .. in your hand! Leave it to apple to make an over-hyped piece of crap, drive up demand for it by over- exaggerating its specs as being so called industry firsts, the finally getting you the product that you can only look at... because if you touch it, it will not work! Ha ha ha and on top of all that they make the silly thing out of glass, now on both sides so you really cant use it or it will break!! I think I'll stick to my metal N1 that i can actually hold to make a call lol lol thanks apple for further solidifying my choice in phone as the proper one, cheers
