The nasty iPhone 4 problem

June 24, 2010

Hold the iPhone carefully by the glass, avoiding the new steel antenna band that runs around the edges. Notice the number of signal-strength bars you have. Now, touch the steel band with your other hand, preferably the left and bottom sides together and you will see your signal disappear, or drop by three or four bars.

The problem is widely reported by many user reports. The problem is also repeatable, making it look like a lot more than a coincidence.

Out of more than 40 respondents tested, about 35 are reporting a signal problems.

Got something to say?
