    I really dont know what you guys keep crying about? THERES NO RECEPTION ISSUE. YOU'RE IN AN AREA OF BAD SIGNAL. IT SHOWS THE ACTUAL SIGNAL. Apple skrewed up this formula in which the signal shows the signal bars and holding the i4 like that shows the actual signal. wait for iOS4.0.1. Just wanted to make this clear because of the story on the frontpage.

    I'm sorry. We weren't aware we had an expert in the forums.

    You do realize that what you are saying has been brought into question by Consumer Reports, right? As well as Engadget.

    Consumer Reports did some serious testing on it.

    They confirmed that there is actually a problem with the hardware.
    A software update would have been released by now to fix it if that was the case.

    Dude, it's a hardware issue.. I don't own an iPhone 4 but it's 100% clear that it is a hardware issue. How come the bars be of fault if it drops from 5 bars of 3G to 1 of edge?

    Fix the typo

    I've tried my hardest to get it to drop all it's bars. Can't do it. With no bumper, I put it between my knees, covered with my legs, and it dropped 3 bars. Did the same test with a 3gs, dropped 3 bars. It's no different.

    It's only affecting people with an ALREADY WEAK signal.

    This rampant "jump on the bandwagon" media over-hype campaign is how we got Obama elected. It might be nice if we figured things out for ourselves for a change.

    Apple's on top, and their newest device will keep them there. Of course they will be a target for hyped up hate journalism.

    For some reason, it seems to be affetcing different iPhones differently.

    Engadget has three iPhone 4s. The review device that they received from Apple works fine. The other 3 all suffer from the issue.

    Consumer Reports put three iPhone 4s into a room that blocks all signals. They then simulated differed signal strength for all carriers. All three of the iPhones had problems, even when the signal was high.

    So, based on this theory, if you short the apple on the back of the iPad, or the black band on top of the iPod Touch,, it should also drop signals as well?

    I have no issues, using phone from Vodafone UK.

    To simulate problem you have to be in a weak area, under 50% signal strength and then try grip of death. Over 50% strength grip of death does nothing normally .

    I have tried but cannot reproduce.
