    I can attest to this, tried getting my phone replaced for the reception issue and they said we arent offering replacements for reception issues. Which is ********.

    Should I demand a refund? Thing is im now on a contract. If I get a refund and repurchase one since they wont "replace" it would I be opening a NEW contract if I re-purchase?

    Thought I'd share this in case other people have this issue as well: my iPhone 4 has the much publicized reception issue BUT ONLY when its connected to wifi. It also refuses to push my mail when on wifi. When I turn wifi off or I'm out of range of a wifi connection, I CANNOT get the 3G reception to fade no matter how I touch it and it pushes my mail religiously.

    When on wifi, if my left hand gets within 2 feet of it (mostly joking), it loses all reception almost immediately (including wifi) and won't push mail. I've tested this repeatedly in front of friends with the same result every time. Very, very strange. Its like the reception issue is tied to the wifi antennae or something.
    I just tested that and for me it does not matter if I am connected to wifi or not I still lose signal.

    I don't think the bumper will solve anything. As it will be covering up exactly what apple says not to cover. Besides I notice most of my bars droping when I place it in the xtand. If you know what this is it only covers the four corner sides and nothing else. As soon as I take it out and lay flat or hold *daintily* it's fine.

    I would also like to note once I did the diagnostic on the AT&T app as well as a few data failure submissions. My reception has gone to 4-5 bars steady. So, not sure.

    What about mail, is it pushing it regularly or only sporadicly or not at all? I have yet to have a message pushed while on wifi

    You know it's kind of funny when I think about it. While in line on the 24th all apple employees were pushing these bumpers. Then again when you made it to the front of the line. Then again when they brought you into the store. And then again when billing you out. Anybody else have this same experience?

    "3. Dont forget YOU STILL NEED to probe and troubleshoot. If a customer calls about their reception while the phone is sitting on a table (not being held) it is not the metal band."

    Thats a simple way to make calls! Good move Apple!

    Damn, i love Apple, but the timeline of circumstances is sad:
    Gizmorons Secret Discover > Apple rush to launch i4 > Some factory "issues" > Bumper "casual" launch > Law suit!

    ffs...just buy a case already and quit complaining! Whats 30$ more to protect and improve a device you've obviously spent a good amount of money on?

    imo, you should have a case already reguardless of the reception issue. I want my phone to stay in as best condition possible

    I only loose reception when 3G is enabled. I have WiFi and Bluetooth enabled and 3G disabled and I have 0 issues. Turn 3G on and the signal drops.

    A Bumper WILL NOT solve this issue. Even with my bumper I will loose signal if my hand is near with 3G on.

    This is not a hardware issue. The issue is with the way the phone is handling frequencies. Once they fix that in a patch it will be fixed. No more complaining. People get over it and shut up.

    I want to see a classaction law suit on apple
    Why? So a small group of lawyers will get tens of millions of dollars and iPhone 4 purchasers will get $10 off a bumper?
