Glad that they addressed it? The only reason why they are addressing this now is because it turned into a PR nightmare and they were in a checkmate type of situation...
I'm a huge Apple fan. I own a lot of Apple equipment but the way this entire iPhone 4 deal has been handled is crap. My business line is my iPhone and all I wanted in the beginning was just admit the flaw and let the consumers know the problem will be fixed. But I was informed by ATT and Mr. Jobs that I am holding my phone incorrectly.
This is good that they are caught with their pants down. Serves them right. They tried to put the screws to the consumer and they were called out. This situation only began to spiral out of control after the Consumer Reports decision to publicly announce that they (CR) would not recommend the device.
Outside of that I seriously doubt anything would have been done about it. Granted it's "only" a phone, but when it affects my business and I cannot conduct business like I used to then that makes it a big problem for me. Sue? Of course not. I simply sell this pos and pay to get out of my contract and move on...
I just want the phone fixed is all. If they can't (won't) fix then I simply move on to another crappy carrier.
