This is getting silly...
Seemingly the same group of folks on this Forum are screaming at Apple here... The Sky Is Falling...
Others say what I've been thinking:
Shut Up and Return It? But the screamers don't seem to respond to that! So then I wonder:
what do they really want? Are they trolls, or whatever?
Then there are those who try to recreate this issue and can't! The funniest yet was the guy whose wife had this issue with 2 of their phones, but the guy/husband can't recreate this issue, and same goes for most others who have bought this product which is hardly available because of the huge demand!
Most people use iPhone with Cases! Many use it with Hands-free Ear Pieces, wired or Bluetooth, thus this issue won't come up in those cases!
Of course there are always those to whom Steve Jobs is a Devil..., and so they wish him, a cancer survivor, a speedy death, or so it seems from their venomous comments!
So... If most people are not having this issue, and Apple can't meet the demand, is it fair to be demanding free Bumpers?
Apple refuses to be dragged into this topic, as they are likely working on a fix...
Apple doesn't want to acknowledge this as a problem, cause they don't feel that it is!
Apple's Refund Policy allows for Return of their products, and I assume that includes item!
So, by dealing with this the way Apple is, Apple is calling some people's bluff -- Shut Up, or Return it for a Refund...
People are free to buy another phone, or design their own!
As I've read some antenna expert:
It's always a trade off! Apple took this antenna to the edge for better reception, because they understand that most people will use the case, and or Hands-Free!
With all the conflicting reports, plus no problem for most people, it's hard to know what the best fix would be!
I am getting suspicious of the same names here SCREAMING at Apple!
Again I say:
Apple is calling your bluff -- Shut Up, or Return it for a Refund!
Buy another phone, or design their own!
