The next iOS update will fix this issue and the world won't need consumer reports to filp flop again since they have been bought and paid for.

Time will tell.

I can see that point, but there is another side, maybe they realized their initial testing was flawed and the number of reported issues allowed them to realize that fact.

I would prefer a company that has the ability to say "we were wrong" rather than stick to the same conclusion for pride's sake. Of course, that assumes that their initial conclusion was wrong and they are not being bought out which is always a possibility...

Conspiracy theory fail.

Apple deleted a bunch of duplicate threads, that's all. People were spamming the forum with carbon copies of existing threads, so Apple decided to clean up. There's no reason why you need dozens of different threads discussing the same thing.

At this moment, there are several open threads on the report, so what's the whining all about?

Quote:
While at least six threads were deleted, some were saved in caches and can still be viewed. The report noted that Apple has been known to delete threads that may be unflattering toward its products from the official online discussion forums.

Again, Apple has done no such thing. Apple deleted duplicate spam threads.

People,

That is normal at Apple forums! I have been member of those for years. They now tell you in a feedback after removal that they disallow opinions on the forum. That is regardless if positive or negative... or simply alternative aproach, because original by Apple is lame and inefficient. They have simply some censors (probably overseas) who do not understand culture or what's going on, but they stick to the procedures and codes blindly. Same with some common jargon wording that is used even in published guide books for Apple products. They simply ban those in censorship. It happend to me with plain quote!

I wonder why they still allow name "Dick" showing up in posts. After all any word and phrase out of context can be percieved offensive.


That is why I do not go there so frequently and I'd rather exchange knowledge on many other Mac related forums including those related to software/hardware issues and fixes/workarounds. Let them appreciate at Apple if someone honors them with hint/tip how to fix problem... or let them work to research it and brag they were first with miracle solution.

I repect Apple, but I cannot accept those kinds of qualities applied to consumers helping each other as to Apple employees. We are not Apple employees and we are not bound by the company rules (secrets, not making any representations to Apple or expressing opinions about vendor products). If they do not understand that then good - more poeople to other forums (like macrumors.com or here on appleinsider.com). They can rate those few amateurs helping at Apple forum as much as they want, but perhaps more people will be in outside community. Perhaps Apple forums become slowly less of use.


greetings

I see you are still talking fud and like twisting the facts. You are not fooling anyone. People know the facts and your twisting statements can't change the facts. The fact is both CR and AnandTech said the iPhone 4 reception is bad when you hold it. And CR said the iPhone 4 reception is worse then the other phones they tested.

Scientifically proven!

FDTD simulation of antenna coating effects on the radiation properties of cellular phones

Abstract
Quote:
A detailed characterization of the effects of antenna coating on the performance of cellular phones is presented. The FDTD-based simulations show that antenna coating facilitates the reduction of the antenna length without jeopardizing the radiation properties of the antenna. However, the radiation efficiency is slightly affected.

I signed up for an Apple Support Communities account with my real name as the username. I posted a few guides and answered a few questions. After some time, I realized I made a mistake using my real name as the username and wanted my account to be deleted, along with my content, so it cannot be indexed by search engines.

 

Apple provides no way to contact them about forum accounts, so I tried the support feedback and waited for a few days. There was no response, so I emailed appleid. Still nothing.

 

Somehow I expected more from Apple but I guess they are busy deleting threads that are critical of their products.

This is not at all the place to vet this complaint. Don't hyperbolize and don't be foolish. Simply contact them again.

 

And don't thread necro when it's two years old.

They just happened to delete a post of my friend asked for iPhone 4 for iOS 5.1.1 update. You can follow the discussion here : https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3974394

 

This is what they said when they deleted the post;

"Thanks guys. I am still looking for more answers. I need to pile up the list of issues and solutions too as I also work in an app developer environment developing business apps and need to analyse the risk to support our customers (so that we can set our minimum iOS recommendation to most stable or less buggy version). Whether the iOS 5.1.1 installation failure rate is 0.01% or 0.001% we need answers and your opiniions. Please blog this thread with as much information as you can."
