I'm a diehard fan and in my opinion i think the proximity sensor is the real culprit. I've become so annoyed and have started to become neurotic everytime I go to make or recieve a phone call, I'm always so worried my ear or cheek will hang up the call, or mute the call if I just hold the phone like normal, like i have with all previous iphones since day 1. It's become such a problem i rarely hold the phone to my ear and if i do i have to hold it at a 45 degree angle just barely touching my head so i can hear the speaker. if for one second i forget about the "problem" and hold phone regularly, it hangs up, 100% of the time, every call i am on is "hung-up" if i hold it that way, the "normal" way. no calls are hung-up or dropped if i use speaker phone or hold it off my entire body and some neurotic angle. It's made calls no fun, and always a hassle, and i never had this problem with original, 3g or 3gs, and i've been through lots of phones, in fact i even had them replace my new iphone 4, to see if because i was one who got the phone on day 1, maybe they improved the issue with a new batch of phones, and STILL the problem persists and 100% of calls are ended when i hold the phone the normal way, because my face or ear activates the screen. THE PROXIMITY SENSOR or it's corresponding SOFTWARE is not functioning correctly. I hope this will be resolved this week as i miss my old iphone 3gs, and would rather have one that works.
this is no fun, and the worse part is i have 3 friends that all got the new iphone 4 as well and THEY ALL HAVE THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM, they just use their phones on speakerphone mode, or bluetooth car mode, or earbud mode to avoid this f*****g problem. What is taking apple so long to update this problem? I think the "dropped call" issue was really this issue confused as people dont realise the problem isn't the antenna, but the screen/proximity sensor. That's the primary reason APPLE, and other companys can release numbers like the charts in this post, that say iphone 4 has fewer "dropped calls" that iPhone 3Gs, it's because they do have fewer "dropped calls" BUT a user ended call, like the ones initiated with this proximity problem, do not count as a dropped call. that's just like hanging up your phone and therefore is not considered a DROPPED CALL.
UGGGGG how many of you agree>
