Just buy an android or windows phone….. less apps, but at least you can hold it :’)
Haha,, You r absolutely right.. We have paid for the device and we can hold it the way we want it.. :)
You guys sure a getting a lot of content from reddit.com
oh is that where it came from? i got it via a tweet.
A tweet that got it from reddit.
sure and reddit is not just another aggregator of stuff submitted from all around the net.
It was _made_ by a Redditor.
Reddit actually does create original content unlike most of the other news aggregators.
can you send me the reddit link pls so i can include in the post?
Who bloody cares?
And reddit gets tons of content from 4chan. Its the circle of life.
MacGyver would solve this problem in a “flash” with a little Duct Tape which comes in iPhone colors……black.
In none of those pics is a voice call being made. The antenna issue is with the antenna used for cellular voice calls. So they are not holding it wrong and this is just sensationalist BS.
ex-fucking-actly. But people are too fucking retarded to know. Or are too blind by their need to bitch. Fucking children. Now I know why Apple doesnt bother explaining reasons to the public.. most are fucking retarded.
It could not possibly be because of people like you who seem to use curse words every single sentence and are a good reason why people seem to hate apple users.
Hey there excited McMac-Lover, Apple isn’t infallible and neither are it’s groupies. Jobs said that it was the wrong way to do it and they’re trying to drum up content, ratings, and page views (that’s the proper use of a contraction btw, see their in your post). Get off of your high horse and calm the fuck down unless you’re gonna go bitch at all of the wrong things on the internet.
wow fanboy much lol. In addition its my understanding that holding it like this slows data as well sooooooooo those face time pics… yeah. Nice try.
Right… and we all know your reception does not affect the ability to get incoming calls either, right?.. and if you notice, in all the pics they have full bars which in itself is BS. If you have little to no bars, chances are you won’t even receive a call. I have experienced this already many times when I all of a sudden have voicemail and no indication that I got a call.
Yup this is not a very big problem. It can easily be fixed.
It doesn’t matter that it is an easy fix – although a very ugly one. The point is it shouldn’t need to be fixed by the end user. Imagine if to use your favorite software (that you just spent hundreds of dollars on) you had to write the last couple hundred lines of code to get it working!
People have been giving Bill Gates billions for crap software. So it doesn’t take much to imagine.
STEVE JOBS SHOULDN’T HAVE REPLIED LIKE THIS BUT THE SOLUTION OF PUTTING A CASE ON UR iPHONE ISN’T ONLY FAIR BUT I THINK U SHOULD BE USING A CASE ANYWAY, IF U DONT USE A CASE U’LL JUST FUCK UP THE PHONE WITH SCRATCHES AND DENTS
I DO HOWEVER THINK THE BUMPER SHOULD HAVE BEEN INCLUDED WITH THE IPHONE 4 CUS APPLE OBVIOSLY KNEW ABOUT THE PROBLEM BEFORE THE RELEASE AND THE BUMPER PROVIDES A SIMPLE SOLUTION
THE SITUATION IS A LITTLE DISSAPOINTING BUT IT STILL DOESNT DETRACT MUCH FROM THE BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF ENGINEERING THAT IS THE NEW IPHONE 4
You’re holding your caps-lock button the wrong way.
I have used my iphone with out any case for 2yrs, I just hate to use covers.
just get a windows phone
…the caps lock key is not too far away from the “a” key on your keyboard. Perhaps you should press it to get rid of the excess caps. I would love to give you some computer lessons, I have a little bit of extra time on sundays. Are you up for it?
With all the advancements in smartphones, someone forgot about the “phone” part of this.
Can you here me n..
I agree with the above sta..
Interestingly, if you look at the reception bars, they still have 4-5 bars in all of the photos. Were they photoshopped, or did they just do the photo shoot 10 feet away from a cell tower?
As with any commercial or advertisement that shows a screen, it’s simulated. The same goes for phones, computers, portable gaming, etc.
It’s always photoshopped.
Fanboys still post replies trying to defend the phone. I can’t believe people are so obsessed with a phone and or company that they can’t even admit that apple messed up and it’s pretty bad.
Also apple new about the issue, Hence the hard push for the bumper case!!! That’s cheap. They make money off of you with knowledge that they fucked up but they can charge you more money to come up with a workaround solution and you still defend them. Thats’ pitiful obsession.
That’s what you retards get for buying Apple products. But, hey, at least you’ll still be a hipster even if your phone doesn’t work.
And at least you’ll still be virgin as well as a troll.
And at least you’ll still be pretending you’re witty. You really should try my self-help course.
And at least MacGuy still has his blowup doll to keep him company.
I have the iPhone 4, no case, and have not experienced this issue. Millions of phones were purchased, and there are some complaints, not millions. I’m a “fanboy” if you want to call me that… because yes, I am a huge fan of this phone, and no other can come close to touching it in terms of quality, clarity of screen, number of available apps, and sheer usability.
All being said – if you don’t like it, think it’s “flawed,” whatever – don’t fucking buy one. End of story. Get a droid, get a blackberry, whatever.
Here you go
What really bothers me is the fact that the “Bumpers” to fix this problem were available on Launch day. Obviously, they knew about this problem. So they created an extra work-around Instead of rotating the antenna a bit more. I love Apple, but I can’t buy their products at launch because they always do something stupid like this and then release a new version that “fixes” it and call it a “new” product. I’ll wait for the iPhone 4.2 in 6 months along with the iPad 2.1 with USB and Multi-Tasking.
iPhone haters will always hate just as iPhone lovers will always love. Posting crap like this never helps either side.
This isn’t the first phone to have the problem nor will it be the last. Is it disappointing? Yes. Is it the downfall of the iPhone? No.
Posting crap like this helps a lot. It’s funny. If it pisses you off then you’re too much of a fanboy.
“My favorite multi-billion dollar company is better than your multi-billion dollar company”
Holding allegiances to companies like that is just plain stupid. Buy products because they work and do what you want, not because of the logo.
Never mind guys, I don’t mind what’s done with my image, why should you. Woke up today and it was all over the web.
“It was _made_ by a Redditor.

Actually the screenshot compliation was thrown together by myself late last night. Quick five minutes work. I’m not a Redditor btw.
Your retort to Apple is a weak one. All photos can be excused as the items used on the phone are not applications that need the AT&T antenna to broadcast. Those are all wifi based apps. DIPSHITS!
^lawl look at the apple fan boy everyone!
Dude it doesn’t matter… they are holding the phone the way they say not to hold it… That is naturally how one holds a phone…. Whether they are using apps or not it demonstrates the “holding it wrong” excuse is BS. Personally I don’t want to have to worry about how I hold a phone for it to work… period.
Class action lawsuit
clearly you people dont understand the internet. but yet you use it enough to know everywhere a news article has been and FOLLOW that article to post comments about how ALL KNOWING YOU found it first therefore it isn’t credible elsewhere on the net. try and think a little critically, maybe just once a day. U FUCKING IDIOTS ARE ATTACKING THE POINT OF THE INTERNET. do you do the same thing with text forwards? fucking dumbass
Is this really deserving of a blog post? Phones are held a certain way so hands and fingers don’t block the screen. Increases product appeal and such in advertising.
Simply amazing. You know I think that Apple is facing all of these issues because they rushed to make the iPhone 4. Android more than likely caused this. However, Steve needs to give an official statement and soon. Until then we can only speculate.
Any how theres this article at http://getyourgadgetsgoing.com/ called “iPhone 4 Is In But The Problems Are Out: Complete Overview”
Check it out for the complete listing of iPhone 4 issues and one that you may yet have heard of but still might be experiencing.
That’s your phone. .as long as you are happy, just hold it as you like :)
