Verzion right now could not handle what would happen if all the iphones jump to there network. It would crash and all of ya would complain like they did to At&t.

The Internet: You too can make claims without needing proof!

You're right, cause you know, Droids have no apps at all and don't use any bandwidth.

At least Verizon is CONSISTANT about working on their network. They are the best as reliability because they constantly improve it. AT&T says "Working on it" But it takes 6 months for someone to actually get out there.

Yeah really not many Droids out there yet. I can say where I live the people with Droids have many problems with them. I'll stay with my iPhone 3G soon to be iPhone 4. And don't ever have a problem with At&t.

Please tell me where your facts come from.

And every person I have met with an iPhone drops calls all the time, and I live in the middle of Boston, so it's not like it's a remote location.

Yea the iPhone 4 looks really nice. That antenna issue is strange, though. But it doesn't seem like it ruins the device or anything. I wonder if it's a hardware or software issue and whether or not they will actually address it.

Just to let everyone know I do NOT have any issues with the signal when holding it in my hand.

However one issue I found is that strange buzzing sound that sometimes shows up when a phone rings. Well if you have a headset on and touch the outside of the phone, because it is an antennae, it induces buzzing.

For those wondering about the battery. It is far better.

Also if you have pandora and are in the lock screen. Wig ios4 double tap homepage to bring up the iPod controls and it will now control pandora for pause/skip. Should work with the 3GS as well.

The antenna problem has been address.

Gripping any mobile phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas. This is a fact of life for every wireless phone. If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases.

Weird. Cause every source I see says Droid sales rival iPhone sales, and Android is poised to take over the "Windows" position in mobile OS's.

I have not noticed any issues with the antenna. I guess your grounding one antenna into the other. I have not noticed any issue at all and calling has been great for me. For people with this issue a simple bumper or case will fix any problem which Id want to use a case with this phone.
