Default Re: iPhone 4 recall "inevitable" as PR experts call for action

I heard from a CS friend of mine who works for one of the major Telco operators in HKG (in touch with Apple), that there are new batches of iPhone4, which do not exhibit any of the death grip issue. The CS also mentioned that the new batch of iPhone 4s seems to have an insulation layer. Again this is unconfirmed. Maybe the press conf will say bring it in and u will get a new non defective model etc. But not really have Apple admit that they did screw up.

Default Apple will not recall iPhone 4.

WSJ says Apple will not recall iPhone 4


Quote:
The Cupertino, Calif., company has called a news conference at its headquarters to discuss the issue Friday. Apple doesn't plan to recall the phone, a person familiar with the matter said.

if that is the case, then Apple should do a recall for all customers that have the initial flawed designed device. Unless they want to do a silent recall not announcing anything, when person contacts apple about a problem they offer a exchange.

But Mike Hunt has a certain je ne sais quoi about it, don't you think?

Anyway, I skipped the iPhone fiasco and bought an LG Ally. Not the best Android phone on the market, but a decent entry-level one. Only problem is that I found out that there likely won't be an upgrade to Android 2.2 OS for it Owell, still plenty to like about it, especially the price: $29.99 since I qualified for a free/cheap upgrade from Verizon. Oh and oddly enough, no reception issues regardless of how I hold it.

google, there is a lot of firmware "cooks" that make custom roms/firmware for phones. just because LG doesn't release an update doesn't mean there won't be one.

So it's a great move from Apple with the free case for everyone.

Question is: is it enough to satisfy that exact group on the web, the group that made this an issue? I don't think so... So I expect a next wave of out of proportion complains.

And they also confirmed the next launch date, July 30th - can't wait
There was no FIX to the issue.

The issue remains.

Apple also never acknowledged there was an issue or apologized for the issue. Keep in mind this issue has been present since the phone was first released (I pre-ordered and got my phone a day before the people waiting in line, blogs were already lighting up about the issue from day -1). Apple's response is, all phones do this, it's not a big deal, here's a case. They have yet to say they will FIX the issue for the phone as it exists right now, i.e. in the flesh without a case.

A case is well and good but come on. If Toyota had not done a recall and just offered thicker front bumpers and bigger air-bags, would that really have sufficed?

Also, the bumper case is one of the worst designs ever and one of the biggest price gouges out there. It is almost universally despised and works with a scant handful of docks and connectors. I am really hoping they have a better solution for the freebie they are planning on handing out.
