I think it may have been a manufacturing problem with the band around the phone using it as an antenna not really sure though knowing Apple they will jump on it and fix it right away though. I really don't understand how they can fix that issue in a software update though.Thanks all so far,
So why already a statement from Apple regarding poor reception? I have a 3gs and have zero reception problems, it's been great. However...the 3gs speakerphone I have found to be the worst speakerphone of all.
lol but look at the good part of it. If someone calls you that you really don't want to talk to....Bam, instant excuse.Hard to believe that they didn't see this in testing, but it certainly makes a difference if you don't your fingers over the two black lines on either side. Great reception so far though if I only avoid those two areas. I can see some SNL skits coming up showing Steve holding the iPhone with a pair of tongs or something.
