"While repeatedly referring to “hard data,’’ Jobs said only 0.55 percent of iPhone 4 users have called Apple’s customer service hotline about reception or antenna issues. “If you read all these articles out there, you would have thought, . . . at least half our customers must have called in to complain or ask questions or be angry, right?’’ he said.

Apple has sold 3 million of the devices. Jobs said that only 1.7 percent of iPhone 4s have been returned and that the iPhone 4 drops less than one call more per 100 than the iPhone 3GS does. “It’s very hard to escape the conclusion that there is a problem, but that — that problem is affecting a very small percentage of users,’’ he said."



So basically a small minority are having problems and the press are making it sound like all the iPhone 4 users hate their iPhones...

I have personally tested this with one of our directors iPhone 4. The problem is real. When you bridge the black strip (either side) the signal drops from full to almost zero. If you were to place some clear tape along the two strips, then there would not be an issue. I think it's a serious problem.

Heard on BBC news last night that iPhone 4 customers are to get a free protective case to help with the signal problems. Not had any real problems with mine and it's definitely alot quicker than my old 3G, but does drop the odd call:(

I had an iphone for 2 weeks and couldnt wait to get rid of it. Its an amazing personal computer but as a phone it sucks. I could not rely on it as my main buisness comms tool. They should recall it. I'd advise anyone else who actually wants to use it as phone to wait until they have fixed the antenna issue. The only people I know that are happy to live with this phones down falls are the people that dont rely on it to make calls.

Surely this should read iphone 4, rather than painting the whole iphone as rubbish? The iPhone 3GS is a brilliant phone as would be the iPhone 4 if they hadn't been stupid enough to release it with such a problem. No, I'm not an Apple fanboy, will probably be changing to the HTC Desire next for no other reason than being a Google fanboy!!!

You won't regret it!! (I've got one)
Had another play with the iphone 4 today. The director has been having problems with setting up email. After alot of head scratching, I found out that you have to turn off the wifi to properly set up email. Once it's setup, you can switch it back on again & it still works!
Maybe a glitch, or maybe by design, or maybe just that particular handset?
