    So I went to the apple store today to see if the reception "software problem" was true. Well it is. For all you people that wanted to know for sure (not many

    I'm still amazed that I managed to get a miracle phone that won't lose its signal no matter how many different ways I grip it. Lucky me.

    First off, we all know this. But it's not a software problem, it's a hardware problem. Which was also on the front page....

    Hence the reason I put it in "quotes" because that is what apple was saying it was

    It's a hardware, not software, problem. And the bars drop slowly because there is a 10 moving average of the signal used to calculate the bars, in reality the signal drops as soon as you touch the bottom corner.

    I did the same thing in an o2 store in my town, held them in the death grip. Couldn't get a single one to drop signal

    I think that Apple may see no serious issues with the iPhone 4’s reception, but several plaintiffs’ lawyers have stepped forward to disagree, the iPhone 4 is worse than both the iPhone 3GS and the Nexus One in this regard.
