    I was just curious how much the death grip fiasco actually affected sales?

    It most certainly did lol. Even though people say it was only some iPhones and it "wasn't that bad", I still want a phone that FULLY functions properly!

    I actually haven't noticed any issues with the 'death grip' with my Iphone 4.

    Not at all. Also, the "death grip" doesn't effect me much.

    At first I was worried about it and contemplating on whether I should sell my iPhone 3GS or just keep it until the contract ended. In the end, I bought the iPhone 4. Why? Because a friend of mine got the phone and once I had a chance to play with it and test out the "Death Grip" I knew I wouldn't have any problems with it. In the end, I'm happy I bought it. Believe it or not, more than half of the feedback on the "Death Grip" comes from those who don't even own an iPhone 4.

    From my experience, the death grip doesn't even occur unless purposely done.

    I debated about it and bugged people at my work, asking them about theirs, but in the end it just delayed me getting one. My power button on my 3G is broken and its slowness was driving me nuts so I upgraded. I love my iphone 4. The signal doesn't seem quite as good as my 3G, and yes I can produce the "death grip" problem, but once I stopped watching my signal bars like a crackhead I didn't even notice it any more.

    Every once in a while when talking on it in my house(which even dropped the reception on my 3G to two bars) I find myself holding it in my left hand and have to switch hands because the signal drops to one bar and the sound gets crappy, but as soon as I switch hands it's fine. And I have never dropped a call.

    played with both my brother's and cousin's iPhone 4s. The Death Grip is hardly a problem.
