    If you put on a case it should fix the problem.

    Also, to the people who know more about this than i do, is this a hardware or software based error?

    Hardware, but people in areas with strong signals almost never experience the issue, even without a case.

    @OP: Cases fix the problem. Are you sure you're using a case and not just a skin? If so, you've got the only iPhone in the world that persists with antenna problems even through a non-dampening material. Congratulations.

    Ah, okay thanks. You would think that Apple would have foreseen this problem.

    Most testing on-site occurred without skin contact on the phone and all of the prototypes in the wild were disguised as 3GS devices with cases, so it's not really that surprising.

    You make a good point.
    What case are you using at the moment?

    Bumper with an IS. Serves my needs well enough.

    Sounds good. I'm probably going to end up changing my case weekly. THERE ARE SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM!

    Anyway, it's good to know that a case easily fixes the problem.
