Apple So, the iPhone 4 has been out for a while, and is getting mostly pretty good reviews - there's one major sore spot, though. Apple made this hoopla about their fancy antenna thingie, but as it turns out, this thingie is kind of a design flaw, causing signal loss (and dropped calls) for some people. Despite downplaying by Steve Jobs himself, AnandTech has done a thorough investigation, and they've found out that the problem - which affects every mobile phone - is a whole lot worse on the iPhone 4 due to the new antenna. At the same time, however, the iPhone has much better reception in low signal situations. What?

Is it still AT&T

I have known for a while now that many of the dropped calls issue is more of an Apple issue that with the network. We have 3 phones in our family - motorola razor, nokia n71, and an iPhone 3GS - all on AT&T. Ever since we got the iPhone and we detect signal problems on it, we check the Moto and nokia- never had issues with them.

This article simply reenforces some of my experience. Many of the iPhone issues are to do with the antenna design and software.
