I think it's a sign that Apple is maturing. Traditionally Apple produced products for a rather small niche market. This gave them the time to test, perfect their products and really think out of the box. However, as they've become more popular especially after the original iPhone they no longer have those luxuries. They now have to bow to the same pressures all other "mainstream" companies have to! In many ways they are in the position Microsoft was in a few years ago.. With product deadlines and the pressure to be first to market, innovation becomes more and more difficult! Let's hope that these errors can be minimized and eliminated. I truly admire the company for its commitment to excellence! I believe that Apple's main contribution to the market is that it's raised the bar of products consumers can expect. We can see that in products like the Nexus one and Motorola droid. Let's see what WP can offer and if Nokia can remain relevant in future.. They SERIOUSLY need to work on their P.R. though!

Let the mocking begin. It's probably justified. There - I said it.

sounds like APPLE is QUIETLY saying that ATT coverage isnt as strong as ATT wants you to think it is...

I still don't understand how they messed this up. I mean, they are expected of so much from everyone that something like this shouldn't have been a problem. They've made 3 generations, so how could they screw up the fourth one?

crApple is gettin scared! A class-action suit is announced and a day later they admit a problem and say a fix is on the way? Coincidence? NAH!

I hope this works out. Like in some places I had 1-2 bars with other AT&T phones but my iPhone showed 5 full bars and dropped all the way to 1 if I hold it. It doesn't change the fact that the signal is 1 bar now, but maybe it was suppose to be at 2 bars to begin with anyways. And I did a quick little test where I did the death grip when driving in the back seat of a car. I death gripped my iPhone the entire time and instead of staying at 1 bar the whole time like you'd expect with the death grip, the signal would actually go up depending on my location. But we'll see what happens later I guess.

How can any Apple fanboy actually defend this rubbish?

Well, you guys have to understand too, this isn't something really expected of Apple. Like I said in an earlier post, they are seen as the top smartphone right now by majority of people that it kinda seems like something such as an antenna problem is kinda silly. I still haven't experienced the "death grip" issue and I've played with my sister's iPhone all day to see if it'd happen, but it didn't. Iono, I'm not gonna buy any phone until I'm certain.
