Apple In a move that should surprise nobody, Apple has sort-of admitted to iPhone antenna problems in their press conference this morning, claiming it affects a small number of users, but they claim to be working hard to fix the problems that they have confirmed. They've offered free bumpers (that have until now been a $30 accessory) to all iPhone buyers, and are offering to waive any restocking fees for anyone who wants to return their iPhone 4. Whether or not there's going to be a hardware fix for future iPhones, Steve Jobs says he doesn't know yet whether that will happen.

YOu arent seeing the problem because:

1. All iphone 4 have the same antenna problem.The problem is more prominent when the phone is "held the wrong way" and at an area with bad reception.

2. Without the update that just came out, i phone 4 showed a stronger signal than it should be showing and this caused users to assume they have a better reception than they were actually having.

3. You dont observe the problem probably because you are in an area where there is a good reception and the problem is there but isnt big enough to be noticed.
