    Default iPhone 4 reception problems - Solved by iOS 4.0.1?

    As the iPhone 4 was released just this Thursday, June 24th, people were reporting connectivity issues. Holding the iPhone in your left hand could smother the antenna and leave you without any signal. Calls were getting interrupted and WiFi signals were dropping.

    Some people has claimed it to be a hardware issue. People sent it complaints to Steve Jobs about this, but Jobs briefly replied Don't hold it that way then to one of the emails.

    Apple have a new software update upcoming, that will be released this Monday, 28th June if all goes as planned.

    The fix is expected to address a issue in iOS 4 related to radio frequency calibration of the baseband. Readers who saw the original forum discussions say that the issue is believed to occur when switching frequencies; because the lag is allegedly not calibrated correctly, it results in the device reporting "no service" rather than switching to the frequency with the best signal to noise ratio.


    Here's a video demonstrating the issues;

    "Don't hold it that way then"

    What a bullshit response from Jobs. What? Does he expect millions of people to change the way they hold a phone? FAIL.
