    Perhaps all these stories of iPhone 4 aerial problems are part of a global conspiracy organised by Android supporters with the purpose of impacting iPhone sales?

    Hmmm, iPhone 4G is about 9 or 10mm thick. Now go spoil it with a bumper to bring it to between 13-15mm thick!

    We love you Apple. The longer you keep these fan boi's occupied with your over priced garbage, the longer we get the better deals in the 'real' world.

    Apple has released official advice for iPhone 4 owners to overcome the problem of the device losing signal when held by the lower left corner.

    Steve Jobs responded to a query about the problem from one owner by saying: "Just avoid holding it in that way."

    Typical response from the narcissistic chocolate starfish.

    It would be interesting to see if there are any advertisements with people holding the iPhone 'in that way'

    lol, remind me of the (very) old joke - "Doctor, Doctor - it' hurts when I move my hand like this"...

    EDIT: Actually I'm suprised they haven't claimed it's a design feature incase of unwanted calls from your mother.... "sorry ma, I seem to be loosing reception, you're breaking up"

    You know the fail that was Job's keynote, I wonder if the real reason he couldnt connect was he was holding it the wrong way :P
    I can confirm the issue as I have seen it happen 3 times now, I just hope it doesnt happen during a call.

    Lol, I suppose 20/20 hind-sight is a good thing, but I did find it funny at the time. Watch his Lord Job's jump up and down on stage blaming the audiance for using the WIFI. I just didn't really twig why until now.

    I suppose it's obvious now when you go back and watch the video. I mean iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 side-by-side, connected (pressumably) to the same AP and yet the 3GS loads the page and the iPhone 4 doesn't. Mmmm, got to be a problem with the AP that

    And then of course not one of the live webstreams running that day posted 'you know what, Steve is right! The internet has been running a little slow in here. Were gonna turn out laptop off so Stevie-boy can do his demo'. Yeah-right!

    Design flaw, Steve already knew about it - that's why the over priced bumpers where launched, and he thought he could cover his tracks by blaming the audiance's wifi usage.

    Still didn't put me off, my iPhone is in the post

    S Job.
    List of jobs and ideas:

    1. The iFail - not designed to work in the first place.
    2. The iAerial - switches off at a touch.

    Looks like the Apple iPhone 4 users could do with one of these:

    @Tech_guy; ooohhh - I want, I want. How much? Where do I buy? Can I give you my credit card, take 500 from that should be enough?

    If it doesn't frey at the edgies and come apart after 10 minutes use I want a refund as it obviously won't be an official Apple product

    Ah, you have the iWallet. Would the card be iPlastic? Hold it the wrong way and the PIN won't work.

    Hong kong - that should take about 2 weeks - although you can still prolly use the phone as a camera and ipod lol - I will get a rubber case but Im not buying apples rubber case when they should of included one with it for the amount of money people are forking out for it in the first place

    Hold it in the wrong way and it erases all the information off of the card and you lose any money you had
