    I have to laugh when fan boys rush out to buy the first run of anything as they are bound to be faulty. Ipod nano Screen? Xbox 360?

    @tmcd35: Why on earth would you buy a piece of hardware with a known major fault? I'm not going to buy one anyway, but if I was, I'd wait a couple of months for it to be fixed and let the other bugs (there are bound to be some) get ironed out first!

    @LosOjos It's not a bug. It's a design feature.

    Need a new phone as the current one is slowly dying. This is a design flaw that isn't likely to be fixed in a couple of months. For the (annoying) sake of an additional £25 the problem is solved. Not ideal, they should really give the bumpers away given the situation, but still. Besides I ordered the phone in the wee hours of the morning before I really grasped the magnitude of this design flaw.

    Oh and I'm vendor locked to iTunes thanks to some early DRM purchases.

    Oh-hum, life goes on. I get the phone I want, at a price I'm happy with. Little else really matters - as others have said, it's only a phone.

    Undocumented design feature you mean.

    I'm looking for the best deal on an X10 mini for the wife, but as you say, it's only a phone. Still, looking for the BEST deal on it - don't see the point of paying an extra £30 if I don't need to. But it's only my money. Better off in my bank than somebody elses.

    You have a cooling off period which you can cancel it before.

    My IPhone has just become active and I have spent the some time watching these videos about the antenna problems and thinking 'its going back' but no matter what I try I can't recreate this issue on my phone(O2)

    iphone 4 has yellow spot on the screen!

    Apple is using a bonding agent called Organofunctional Silane Z-6011 to bond the layers of glass. Apparently, Apple (or more likely Foxconn) is shipping these products so quickly that the evaporation process is not complete. However, after one or two days of use, especially with the screen on, will complete the evaporation process and the yellow "blotches" will disappear. How do I know? I was involved in pitching Z-6011 to Apple.

    I was in my local O2 yesterday afternoon and I must admit I couldn't get either of their demo phones to show the antenna problem, even when using a key.

    I went into the Apple Store last night to look at the bumpers. Cheap, plastic, over priced and only available in black. I walked out without buying one. Bought a cheap rubber case off eBay for £5 delivered from Hong Kong. I'm sure that'll do the trick.
