    Since launch I have unable to find one....



    If I take off my bumper I can replicate the problem 100%, but I'm not moaning I love the phine and the bumper stops the issue.



    Maybe I have one of the small sample with problems or maybe they all have the issue in the right conditions. Who knows.



    I'm keeping my iPhone 4, and I will be getting my Bumper refund thank you Apple.

    Its not just AT&T,... us guys over the pond have O2 and Vodafone etc.. and we still experience the same issues,.. sorry but i am not convinced / won over by Steve today,.. i now have a case on my iP4 and still suffer awfully slow data upload / download speeds and am constantly on only 1 bar,.... just to point out where i live we have an excellent cell tower reception, just not with iP4, my wife also has an iP4 and hers is exactly the same.



    We dont want to get a refund because besides the reception / download speeds the rest of the phone is awesome,... so was really hoping for a fix today ,.. but hey ho,...

    What is with you people? I've seen ip4 owners complain about this, only to be called a whiner, a troll, and even have their ownership questioned... It's a legitimate issue.







    What does that make you? You don't have an iPhone, but make a lot of negative posts on these threads. Every once in a while, you will post with a positive gist-- but usually it includes a little dig or two at Apple for some prior infraction.



    Anyone can click on your alias and review your posts, and decide for themselves how objective, open-minded, and interested in solutions you are!

    Didn't he say "...I do apologize to them"? He must have said that, because otherwise, it would not have been an actual apology.

    I think the take away from this meeting is "Don't hold it that way when you are in a weak signal area." Pretty much what Steve originally said in that email a few weeks ago.



    I'm okay with that compromise. We never were able to completely flat line the bars here in our testing since we have a strong signal. It kind of makes sense though. Like many things in life, you need to take precautions for certain circumstances.

    You do realize that AI is using the same news from the same bloggers? Any blogger should be taken with a grain of salt. That said, with such a low instance of reported complaints, it doesn't make financial sense to redesign. Especially when the same issue can be reproduced (5 bars to 1) on any number of non-Apple phones.

    It matters exactly how?

    I'm not completely satisfied with the free bumper response, but it's better than nothing. I'd really rather they put some kind of permanent non conductive coating on the antenna so I wouldn't be required to put the phone in a case.



    Now I too will have to join the group that says: you should consider holding it differently, or returning it. (I plan to use the bumper case in low-signal areas only).

    I do not know where they are, but this is a thread about free bumpers, not dropped calls. If such a thread pops up, then I would post the same thing.

    So someone who has an iPhone that doesn't work is a hater for expecting it to be resolved? Interesting.

    Do you find reception poor everywhere? HOw have you measured the signal strength giving you "excellent cell tower reception"?

    The person who could afford to do that does not need much of your sympathy, I am sure.

    My biggest beef with the iPhone 4 right now is that I can't get one - been waiting two weeks and am informed its likely to be at least a week more.



    I think they (Apple) made a major and strategically critical move today, and they said and did exactly the right thing.



    I would have liked to see more detail on the prox issue and the 3G-2G handoff issue... though these may require a cycle through FCC approval.



    IMO, Apple did what it had to do, and a bit more.



    It appears to have satisfied the investors as AAPL is up over $3 since before the meeting began.



    The usual suspects, here, seem to be reduced to arguing about the placement of the deck chairs on the Titanic's second voyage.

    The 30-day return window has already expired for most people who currently have an iPhone 4. Maybe they would have already returned them if it were not for the constant "stay tuned" comments implying a fix. AT&T has a restocking fee regardless and even Steve Jobs didn't really know what happens with your contract.

    Have you seen the cases? They're not one solid piece of rubber. They have a hard part that goes around the center, and there's also hard buttons attached to it for volume buttons and power/sleep button.



    Wake up. These aren't like most silicone cases.

    From its looks, fuctionality and style, my guess is that Jony designed the Bumper too.

    I'm curious how you came to that price. Is that including packing and shipping? What about R&D. Or are you just quoting a "dock price".



    Could you list your experience in manufacturing molded consumer items in China? Or perhaps here in the U.S. What other items have you worked on?

    Since there isn't any queue yet, the answer is rather obvious.
