R2D2 here,

I laughed till a resistor blew out my nose! Apple says you must hold your iP4 a certain way for reception. Too funny! Here's a thought: Take your head out of Job's axe and the reception will improve. No such problems with my Droids. The force is with us!

Dear Droid users, you finally got one thing to complain about...

Apple will fix the issue, but you will still have the worst phone on the market.

First of all, learn how to spell Droid. & worst phone on the market, cmon, are you straight up dum? Android has a hell of a chance of surpassing the iPhone (It already has). Apple over there is so greedy, you guys barley got some of the features that Android already had. Give Android some time, iPhone has been in the game for a lot longer. Android is more customizable. & remember were talking about Google here.. Remember these words, Android will catch up to your precious iPhone, promise you that. ;]

Apple is afraid.

P.s. At&t, worst cell phone carrier.

Get you head out of Steve's ass or his head out of yours. I am a 3GS user its a fine phone (In fact i love it). Android is a fine OS as well. I think the competition is good. I would not pay a nickel for the iphone4. You have to be a fool to put up with it. If you bought bumpers to fix the issue you just proved it to yourself. WOW such a disappointed. I have told a 100 people I buy apple products because of the quality. That argument is shot till apple make it right for those suckers that paid for it.

This is obviously just the right handed version of the iphone. Surely they'll come out with another one that works for you leftys.

But seriously, how did something like this get through testing on this phone.

I believe what this is is planned obsolescence taken to its next logical form; sell a product that doesn't even work new. I had to send an iPod back to Apple three times because it wouldn't even play songs, and they wanted me to buy an extended warranty (while I was still within my original warranty period).

Even stranger, I bought a Microsoft wireless keyboard mouse combo and it stopped working last week. I called them and they're sending me a replacement at no charge and they don't even want the one I have back. Now, when Microsoft is giving you such good service, why can't their competitors offer the same?

Many tech people will buy the Android phone, because of it's abilities and the fact that it gets updates very often. Less tech people, and tech people, will buy the iPhone because of it's functionality. It's designed well, it's fast and it's very easy to use. You can't put up a competition with Android vs iOS, because it's about what the consumer prefers.

That sounds VERY strange. Apple is known for their quality products, and this sounds nothing like them. Why did you have to send it in three times? Apple usually lets you send yours in (to refurbish it) and sends you a new or refurbished one. Atleast one that works.
And there is a reason to why Microsoft didn't want you to send in your keyboard, I mean, it's just a plastic keyboard. You can't compare a product that costs 170$ minimum and whatever you paid for your keyboard. What are they going to do with your keyboard, fix it and send it back? No. Apple on the other hand, has a chance of saving a quality product, that people pay a lot for.

Fixed that for you and yes getting Froyo (2.2) on a phone that wasn't slated to because of an awesome community is reason to own a product sometimes.

In regard to the MS vs Apple on the return policy. I've seen worse, Canon often beats all by citing water damage and denying the use of the warranty at all. (common on SLR bodies)

As I recall there was a similar issue with reception on the titanium macbooks back in 2001. The titanium casing blocked reception of wifi. Apple ended up replacing it with aluminum.
