iPhone 4 Antenna Solution

Even the almighty Apple is not able to talk it's way out from this antenna mess a.k.a antennagate
Releasing a new iOS 4.0.1 which is suppose to correct the wrongly calculated display of signals.

The short conference on 16.07.10 (roughly approx 30mins) starts off with a youtube clip singing about the deathgrip.

Next, Steve started by saying that Apple is not perfect and all mobile phones are not perfect either.
After that intro, he continued by comparing the deathgrip with 3 famous smartphone manufacturer:
  • Blackberry Bold 9700
  • HTC Droid Eris
  • Samsung Omnia II
Basically to conclude that all phones have the problem when gripped in a way that blocks the signal receiving capability.
Next, Steve introduces the state-of-the-art testing laboratory in Apple.

While comparing with the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4 dropped < 1 more calls per 100 more.
Steve is concluding that this problem occurs in all smartphones and the iPhone 4 case is completely being blown out of proportions.

Now the interesting part, Steve announced that Apple will provide the bumper free-of-charge and refund to those who had purchased it earlier. Obviously Apple is not able to make the bumper fast enough to give it to the users, there will be other types of casing which will be available at the Apple website. All you need to do is select and Apple will ship them to you.


But this only happens up to September 30 suggesting that there could be a future updates that could help solve this problem. We shall see...

and if you're still unhappy.. you could get a full refund (no restocking fees).
