My co-worker and I own an iPhone 4. Both of us didn't have any problems (we do not use cases) with so called "antennagate" issue. Never. Ever.

Well, then you apparently have a different phone grip than many people. This can't really be argued that its not a design flaw. Its just physics combined with ergonomics. You can't deny the physics of the flaw: short two antennae with your finger and the frequencies received and sent changes. Nor the likely hood of someone bridging the minuscule gap by holding the phone in an obvious position.

Yes you are right about physics. I live in Europe and as I understand we have much better reception here in general than in USA. That's way I've never experienced such issue.
I've tried to reproduce this in different places and always failed ;)

Edit: about design flaw. I don't believe that engineers at Apple knew nothing about physics while designing such antenna.
