    I haven't bought an iPhone 4 yet (well I did but my ebay order was canceled...), it's given me time to find out issues with the new iPhone, which has led me on a wild adventure of reading hundreds of posts throughout the last two days.

    I've run across a few posts like this one, so hopefully we'll hear from them soon.

    I hope it's software. The bumpers are ugly and a recall would be crazy.

    Nice one, it's good that they are at least working on a solution.

    Haha same. A recall would be insane, and chaotic. Hope the announcement happens soon.

    You hold your iPhone a certain way and poof! There goes your reception. According to Apple Insider, the issue may not be hardware-related but rather a software quirk:

    An iOS update Monday—or during next week—would be far sooner than the norm for Apple, but based on the overwhelming user complaints it would be understandable and necessary. If the issues are really software-based.

    Apple must be getting crazy. Use something besides your hand to hole your phone. Wow. This is getting really interesting. I can't wait to see what happens next. Wonder how when they were testing it they failed to notice this...

    Edit: I just found out how you can hold it without using your hands:

    Hahaha, I love it. If they don't fix it, this is going to be a pain in the ass to work around. I keep forgetting and then realize when I have one bar that I can't hold it that way. Also, yea a recall would be like June 24th all over again. MASSIVE LINES

    Except your iPhone won't take you speeding away, possibly to death because of a manufacturing defect.

    I think that might block the signal a little but I could imagine it working. Maybe just covering the edges on that corner though.
