    Confirmed: iPhone 4 has reception issues

    Consumer Reports Electronics Blog: Lab tests: Why Consumer Reports can't recommend the iPhone 4

    Hard to believe Apple released something that seems to have such an obvious design flaw.

    When your finger or hand touches a spot on the phone's lower left side—an easy thing, especially for lefties—the signal can significantly degrade enough to cause you to lose your connection altogether if you're in an area with a weak signal.

    LOLz at the apple fanboys.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    yes because AT&T doesn't have enough bandwidth for all the IPhones. This has been going on sense the beginning.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Unpossible. Apple only ***** excellence and never puts out a crap product. People are just using it wrong. Yup - that's the issue...

    If you just wrap it all up in duct tape, that pretty iPhone works just fine.

    I mean, doesn't everyone have duct tape wrapping their other gadgets up?

    Since you lack the sense to read the article before posting... you continue to live up to connotation associated with your screen name. Bravo good sir, bravo.

    I'm pretty sure he's Ralph from the Simpsons.

    Re: Confirmed: iPhone 4 has reception issues

    My dad recently "upgraded" to the iPhone 4 and is about ready to take it back. The reception problem is real and pervasive. We are in the Bondurant / Des Moines area and the signal strength has been a real problem. Plus it was acting up with a old emails coming in and all kinds of stuff. It seems to have settled down now and is working a little better, but the reception issue continues. He really doesn't want to spend another $30 for a case if that helps resolve the issue. Apple needs to come up with a free solution.

    Sorry - this ended up longer than I intended.

    Re: Confirmed: iPhone 4 has reception issues

    I'd be more concerned about the lack of innovation at this point. The 'droid scene is getting ready to swallow up Apple here in about another year and a half at the pace it's going, due in large part to awesome hardware, and a good-enough OS, which has always been Apple's forte. Getting beat at their own game is not something that is very good for Apple...
