    Good idea. I never had problems with dropped calls with my old Nokia 5100, and that was an AT&T phone (pre-Cingular merger.)

    No. This can`t be real. I just had a conversation about iPhone antennas and they said they could just put a regular antenna on it .-.

    I have NO problem with my iPhone because I hold it in my right hand and did with my old one?!

    I literally don`t get why people are holding it wrong!
    It`s so stupid and gay.

    This is the best thing that Apple could ever have done for themselves. Now everyone will have to buy yet another add-on just to use their product. Except this time it`s cleverly marketed as a mistake - PC people will scoff and say "Oh another Apple travesty" (no consumer losses there) and loyal Apple buyers will buy their extra necessary part just like always. Even the ones who were catching on will forgive them for their error. (And no, I don`t actually believe this is the extra part.)

    if you own an iPhone there are a few things you should be aware of.

    1. you are a tool
    2. your phone is NOT anywhere near the top of the market
    3. Android phones from nearly a year ago outperfrom the current iFail 4.
    4. Steve Jobs still controls your phone
    5. We are all laughing at how stupid you are.

    @apolloapk

    you could get a case...though I would argue that a 500 dollar phone should work just fine without a 2 dollar plastic case.

    course that still would not solve the problem that the iPhone 4 is BEHIND the technology curve compared to current Android phones like the HTC line of phones and motorola-both of which make the iphone look like a cheap knock off.

    lol, as Argondey said, Apple ACTUALLY now says that the REAL problem is NOT the Antenna. No, whats really going on is ALL iPhone software has been badly programmed (all) so that they show more bars than are actually being recieved.

    So it turns out that for a long time iPhones have been displaying more bars than they were actually receiving, and (this is the best part) THE REAL PROBLEM IS PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY JUST GETTING CRAPPY RECEPTION. (I love the knock on ATT too!!!)

    Steve Jobs and the gang are snorting some good stuff lately. I dont own a cell phone, but I did buy a Macbook in 2008, and as you all know thats the year that imovie sucked. So I bought imovie 2009, its awesome except theres an audio bug, so I`m a 2 time loser. It seems to be fixed now, to anyone that has the imovie 09 audio problem, get them at an Apple store to reinstall the program from their own hardware, and not your disc. Good luck, Apple is :\ in my book

    I remember how around 5 years ago everyone wanted the smallest thinnest phone that had no stupid looking antenna. Now they have gotten even bigger and require a stupid antenna.

    I`ve been real happy with my HTC Incredible on Verizon. It`s 3G, but here in the bay area I`ve not had nearly as much trouble as my co-workers with iPhones on AT&T have been having.

    There are other options out there.

    "You can now buy an AT$T mini cell tower for your home. If your service is crappy in your house, just pay money to increase the company`s network size. Yay."

    The problem is not with the reception, the problem is with the phone receiving the signal because the antenna is poorly designed.

    "Wait, is this serious? They`re putting an antenna on the Iphone??? What the fuuuuuuck????"

    course it`s not serious... style is the only thing iPhones have going for them...

    I don`t spend any money on apps. Can`t be reached by work off hours. My wife has no clue where I am when I`m out of the apartment. I get lost and discover great places. I actually know that a restaurant really is good or bad. If I don`t know the title of a song, I have to discover a band`s entire catalog of music. If something bad happens, I at least have a half hour of solace before I know and have to deal with it. If the situation calls for a fart noise, well then, I at least get a little relief.

    I hate cell phones.
