The problem here is there are too many Apple fanboys here. They will accept anything Apple says and minmize the issue.Yes, we all know there is a problem, BUT this testing debunks Apples reports of this being a "software" issue, and we now know that it is a much larger issue. Apple better get off their high horse and admit failure for once, and do the right thing. I love Apple just as much as the next guy, but come on, step up!
Nope never said fanboys were the problem but here , many seem to think Apple is infallible and if they don't have the issue it is no big deal and get over it.yeah. fanboys. THAT'S the problem. as long as we fanboys are out there Apple won't fix anything.
anyway, people don't emphasize any experiences but their own. I don't choose to not care about signal issues because i think Apple's infallible; i don't care because it doesn't affect me. neither do yellow pictures.
Might want to dump that stock Neal...Tanked almost 2.35 today on news from CR.Nope never said fanboys were the problem but here , many seem to think Apple is infallible and if they don't have the issue it is no big deal and get over it.
My camera is not perfect, if I hold the phone correctly I get the signal to drop(this has been less lately), significant BT issues but I do not defend Apple..I understand these issues exist. I am not running out to change my phone either.
I am disappointed as all I hear is how great Apple is and their CS is wonderful. Yet I hear so many cant get phones exchanged or fair help. One person was told they could exchange it but they had no phones and wont get any till the 30day return period is up and they may do nothing for the person. WTF.
I love Apple I own their stock and I think their products are nice and their businesss model is amazing right now. But I will call like I see it. They are not doing well in my eyes right now. The iPhone4 is a premium priced phone and I expect it to work. Sorry, I feel that way.
I understand what your saying. My point being how susceptible a company is on bad news and given Apple's blasé response some who know more than I with regards to investing say Apple is walking on thin ice.you won't last long trading stocks if you're prone to knee-jerk reactions.
Can't recommend it? Don't think Apple gives a crap seeing how there is still a waiting list at most Apple stores to get one. And there has yet to be a headline reading "all iPhone 4 users are returning their phones". It's hard for me to call this an antenna issue sense the antenna works perfectly if nobody plays defense on it. I understand how in principle people could be outraged that they can't hold their phone a certain way, but in reality steve jobs fixed the issue a while ago if you want to make a call move your hand accordingly. My main problem with these complaints is that every time somebody wants to prove the issue they cover the antenna of there phone, sense when did Apple promise the antenna would work while the antenna is hampered?
Anyway that's my little rant
That last line is funny! That's what I need is for my friends to call back and remind me of the proper iPhone 4 holding instructions! That's sweet!Are you serious? Look, I have always been an iPhone fan but the fact remains that I can hold this phone for under 30 secs and see the bars drop before my eyes. I have NEVER had that happen with any other phone I've owned. And the response that Apple gives? Sounds like you have alittle apple-fanboyism man... I can honestly say that the phone is amazing and at the same time say this MUST be addressed. Personnaly, I would like to see them do the right thing here. If not, they will lose ALOT of credit from many people and the next launch may not be as good. This report from CR is bigger than you think. Because of the CR report, channel 7 news ABC had it on there top stories. I have people from all over laughing about this. My father in-law that knows NOTHING about cell phones is even busting my chops cause I own the new iPhone. God for bid I drop a call. I get a return call back asking if I was holding the phone the right way... See how that stems out...
That's MY rant!
