    Default iPhone 4's antenna problems secret fixed (?)


    After the initial release of the iPhone 4, people have been reporting antenna issues, causing the phone to drop calls and interfere with the call quality.
    Complaints were sent to Steve Jobs, and conveniently he replied "Just avoid holding it that way."

    Apple officially announced that the software was the issue. Supposedly the phone was displaying more bars than the caller was actually getting, and that a software update prevent users from seeing this in the future.
    No word on the antenna issue.

    Instead, it seems as Apple has secretly altered the manufacturing process of the phone. People with defect phones returning to the Apple Store got their phones replaced for the slightest error. An example of that would be a customer who had problems with the home button. The Apple Store employee ran diagnostics on the phone, and when it turned up clear, the custom left the store with a brand new iPhone.

    Lots of users have been reporting the same. They bought the iPhone 4 early, had it replaced and haven't been able to replicate the signal dropping issue.

    I'm just hoping to get this confirmed. It's pretty much the last reason why I'm not buying the iPhone 4.
