    hey guys, so I was just wondering, with all the reception/antenna issues with the iPhone 4 do you think it's a large enough problem to hold off on getting one? I live in Canada and I am on the Rogers network, i couldn't seem to find any confirmations of issues in Canada, but then again isn't the issue the hardware? Anyways, I really want to upgrade from my iPhone 3g since it's becoming less and less compatible, so should I hold off until apple makes a hardware fix, or am I just being too paranoid? Thanks in advance guys.

    you could get it and just use a case, the issue is really bad in the states because AT&T has weak signal everywhere, so the issue is more profound, I don't know how rogers is so idk. Otherwise the 3GS should be cheaper now, you could get that since there is no real issue with it.

    Completely false. In the middle of the country, AT&T has fantastic signal strength. I'm constantly in Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and occasionally Arkansas and I nearly always have three or more bars and a very speedy connection. Just because it might suck in your area doesn't mean it's bad everywhere.

    @OP: It's really not a big enough problem to avoid getting one. If you're in an area with an extremely weak AT&T signal, you may want to think twice and go with a different carrier, but if your AT&T coverage wherever you are is decent, definitely get the 4. Also, if you're a Best Buy RewardZone member, you can get a free Zagg side protection pack, which alleviates the antenna non-issue without adding the bulk of a case. Or, just get a case. Or, just hold the phone in a comfortable position rather than gripping it with your entire hand.

    The biggest problem holding me back from buying an iPhone 4 is the proximity sensor issue. But I read that the ios4 beta fixed it so I might be buying the iPhone soon.
