    Hi everyone... ive thought of selling my iPhone 3GS and buying the iPhone 4. Currently i can sell it for 2750DKR and a new iPhone 4 will cost 4300dkr total after 6 months of contract..

    But... ive noticed ALOT of users have complained how holding the phone acturally kills the respection.. Anyone out there that have or are experiencing it?

    Remember when phones used to have antenna's sticking out of them and you were told not to touch them? That is why, it messes with the signal.

    It seems like such an obvious mistake. I'm not quite sure how Apple is going to fix this with a software update.

    I wouldn't think that they can, it really is a massive c*ck up... unbelievable really that they could not have thought of it, didn't it ever happen to them during testing?

    Hmm one thing i noticed.... why doesn't anyone showing the problem hold it in right hand? Does this only occur when hold left handed?

    I think this is why they made the bumpers that look so amazing, I think thats what they are for, keeping your fings from messing up the antennas.

    Yeh, watch the video, it's when your hand connects the 2 antennas (or antenni? :S)

    after approx 100 minutes of talk time on my iphone4, i have not experienced any dropped calls, or breaking up. The signal may drop, but the calls stay connected.

    It only affects left handed people so I guess all the engineers who worked on it where right handed.
