Have you updated it to 4.01? And hows the antenna thing?

I love mine. I wouldn't trade it for any of the others out there. I just don't have the problems like others do.

Thing is, every single iphone 4 has those problems. When you don't notice it initially, all seems good. Once you notice them, it is annoying as hell

I have had my phone since June 29th and no problems. Yes I get the bars drop when you touch that spot. But it doesn't bother my calls or data. Again like said no drop calls and that sensor thing you mention before does nothing wrong. I have been on the phone many times up 1 1-2 hours and no problems.

First article on google regarding the problem.

As you can see, Steve Jobs acknowledged there was a problem and is looking into a fix.

I dropped 5 calls in one day simply by being on speaker-phone and reaching out to touch a button. The call dropped before my hand came anywhere close to the screen each time. Ironically, I was on the phone with Apple

It is a known issue and doesn't affect me when I have the phone held up to my face or when it is docked in my car-dock, but it is somewhat annoying nonetheless

Sorry, this statement is incorrect. I have had my iphone4 since launch day and I do not have any signal drop by covering the antenna. I have also updated to the latest firmware and still no signal drop by covering the antenna. There is a consensus on other forums that some iphone4's have signal drop and others do not.

EVERY iPhone 4 has a signal attenuation issue.

Your understanding or personal experience of it is irrelevant. It can be duplicated on EVERY iPhone 4. Apple had a massive media conference regarding this and has a website dedicated to showing that other phones also have issues (according to them), so by saying I am incorrect, you are saying Apple is incorrect and retarded in giving out free cases?

Also, a single persons anecdotal evidence is not worth much, or that of a few people. The fact this is duplicable across all tested devices by various media outlets and engineers > what you or some people on websites say. I have the phone, I have duplicated it on my phone and all other iPhone 4's I have had access to (between myself and my friends, that is 4 devices). Austin is not generally considered a low signal area
