    You should try biting them a little. She likes that even more.

    So is it just me r does anyone else not see this as an issue at all? I don't have this problem. Then again, I don't grip my phone like I do my girlfriend's tits when see's butt naked. I mean seriously, don't hold the damn phone like that and you wont have the issue.
    I have not been able to replicate this either. However I have had the issue happen with my 3GS.

    It's not just about the way you hold the phone...
    I've heard some bug in iOS 4 and new Baseband OS help to make situation worse...
    The problem is that there is a bud in switching frequencies... (Maybe!)
    So, a bugfix can make it better and normal with losing 1-2 bars as is normal with any wireless device!!!

    Come on people, Software updates can fix anything. Havent u seen the battery life increase from 3.0 to 4.0, LMAO. Remember Apple has always claimed battery life is increased. Now they are claiming software update can fix a reception issue, LMAO. I'm calling BS!!!!! again

    PS: Apple, IF your software update can fix this reception issue. Can u please send this update to our government and see if you can fix it too.

    *sighs... a small company called NASA fixes hardware problems with software all the time, as they don't always have physical access to satellites, and even if parts of the equipment are destroyed, software updates can restore some of the lost functionality.

    People who have no idea of how software and hardware interact, shouldn't comment on it.

    Small company like Apple introduces a product called the Iphone 4 rubber bumper on the same day they introduce the Iphone 4 (which has reception issues due to the antenna on the outter case).

    Was this coincidence or conspiracy?

    The transcivers are all programable. So lets hope there is a software fix.
    I remember hearing about the new way of playing with multi cell towers for a better connection, so maybe tweeking that code will help. Here are the new chips.
    Skyworks SKY77541 GSM/GRPS Front End Module

    Skyworks SKY77542 TxRx iPAC FEM for Dual-Band GSM/GPRS

    These will be the ones they tweek.



    There is the Carrier settings which went from 5.6 to 7.0
    and the Modem Firmware 5.13.04. Wonder which one they will modify, or maybe both of them.

    Or as I posted earlier, there is the CMOS Fix
    The o'l antenna decal

    or my home made version for my 3gs, which gave me a 2 bar improvment.

    Coincidence. Apple realized there was good money to be made off accessories they make. It's why they made the iPad case and it's why they made the iPhone case. Apple is not the kind of company that would introduce such a critical flaw in their phone design to force people to buy their accessories.

    I beg to differ. Look at what ATT just did with thier data plans. Who would have thought they would do such a thing to their users.

    Money makes u greedy, no matter how big the company is.

    PS: Notice on 4.0 you cant add pictures to ur text messages, because u dont have the option. Now u mean as BIG of an update that 4.0 was. Apple was dumb enough to leave that important part out. WOW, just amazing.

    because every other case on the market would have left the sides of the phone fully exposed right? OMG I think you're onto something here, please tell us the 'REAL' story about how Mr. Jobs got his new liver from craigslist.

    Best software solution if it was a hardware issue:



    now you have about 2 minutes before you run out of signal even if your holding your phone wrong!

    OMFG, really? this takes the cake lmao.

    listen, every carrier will be doing what AT&T is doing, we're probably the only country that even still has an option for unlimited data, ask some of our members across the pond if they have unlimited data, this has nothing to do with greed at all, some people actually like the idea of saving a few bucks a month as statistically 96% of AT&Ts users never use more than 2GB a month.

    AT&T is actually the company in the bunch that had true unlimited data and didn't cap at 5GB like other carriers.

    next conspiracy please...
