You are holding your iPhone 4 the wrong way, you know!

25 June, 2010
Yesterday's iPhone 4 launch was full of surprises - dead-on-arrival, yellow spots or white dots on the screen, lost reception signal and a bunch of happy users. But while yellow spots will likely disappear...

dont worry guys,
Apple will surely make another iphone 4 for left handed people..
BTW.isnt that great?the antenna is to perfect.wen ur on call and want to end up the call.you jaz hold the phone in a wrong way and the call will drop..hahaha.what a clever design.other phone manufacturers will surely follow what apple has done to iphone 4 antenna..
Or maybe this excellent antenna design could be the result of Nokia law suit to apple about stealing their gsm/wifi/3g technology.so here is the result of that law suit.a clever antenna design.klap klap klap for apple.

if i were apple i would add; or simply wrap the phone's metallic sides with some electrical tape...that would protect it against some drops too...lolzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

And, iPhone 4 blends too, nicely and smoothly. Must watch video as the guy also put the story of finding iPhone 4 at bar in a very funny way.

that's a stupid excuse apple told their customers.

Apple tries to push changes all the time, lately the flash thing/html5, now people should start being left handed instead of right handed.... bet Jobs is left handed and the phone was designed with him in mind as he would hold it with the right hand. Consumer regulators should get the phone off the market and it is not suitable for it's purpose. As someone said buy and ipod touch if you don't intend to make calls.

why buy an iphone that doesnt make calls? Just buy an ipod touch instead.

No problem
You need a iHand

Well, we could give a lot of real life experiences to make an analogy here...: Just imagine you have an amputated arm, the left arm to be more precise, and you e-mail Steve Jobs because your iPhone 4 signal reception is too bad, and Steve replys: "Just avoid grabbing it with your left hand".. lolol wouldn't it be fun? or just disrespectful?
Next iPhone will come out with some clamps and tripod just to make sure you won't get signal reception problems =)
Here you are, making an emergency call and suddendly, cause you forgot you couldn't hold your phone with your left hand, the call goes down... and you get stuck, with no emergency solution at all because your phone is special... and it has its own special way of being hold!

Well as I have said before I ditched the iPhone on the 3G version due to bad reception which O2 finally admitted and now my tariff is much reduced as compensation.

Then this, LMFAO another iPhone that has iPoo reception.

I'll stick with Blackberry's for now thanks..........

That's something I don't like.

Is It something that many Iphones will have?

iOS 4 should be called POS 4, because it just crashed my friend's 3GS.

Anonymous, 25 Jun 2010If Apple did put the antenna on top, would you then buy it?You mean an external antenna? Ha ha,
Nope, i wouldn't buy an iphone even if they put the antenna in Steve's blank cheque.

I feel sorry for the iP4 antenna design engineer. Her desk was probably cleaned out last night, and HR walked her out the door before lunchtime.
