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.

I can't believe people actually believe the BS coming out of Jobs mouth. All smartphones have this problem? Really? Then where were the reception complaints about the previous iPhone models? Give it a rest. The only people buying into this crap are the koolaid drinkers. My brother has an iPhone and he's not an iFanboy so he KNOWS there is a problem and can't stand the deniers. I guess if you're so heavily invested in the Apple ecosystem you start to justify the flaws instead of demanding that they be fixed.


Yeah, I am still scratching my head over this one as I have never had this problem with my HTC, nor have I ever heard of this problem being common or known amongst smartphones. Yes there have been cases similar, but that was design flaws...kind of like something something something....Apple?

It is my understanding, both from personal experience, as well as what I have read in the past that iPhones in general have never had great reception to begin with.

Apple is the only one that decided not to insulate their antenna. Shame on them -it's as if they replaced all their engineers with Art Majors.
