I am really tempted but this flaw makes me stop..!! I've been waiting, really tempted by the desire, then the dell streak and now I want the iPhone. Never had an iphone before so... I need to buy on Pay as you go as i'm tied down to a 18 month contract sim only... Not sure now!!
I guess yourself, and anyone who's just bought one, should be able to break the contract within the first 14 days and return the phone if it's that bad. The thing I don't get is that they're saying it only affects left-handed people but everyone who' right-handed holds the phone in their left-hand so this bug's going to affect 90% of buyers. It would have been less of an issue if holding it in you're right hand caused the signal loss!
Mind you, if nail polish or a 'bumper' case can fix the issue it doesn't sound like Apple will have too big a deal resolving the fault. Suspect it'll mainly come down to whether they're willing to publicly awknowledge the flaw and do something for existing owners beyond than telling them they're not holding it properly!
Think I'll move across to the 30-day Simplicity contract and hold-fire to see what Apple come back with in the next couple of weeks. I can imagine Jobs and co. will be sitting around a table in a smoke filled room discussing their options at the moment given the potential PR fallout from this

Ive fitted 2 on my phone for double protection I love it that much.
Im not suprised the heat from the Desire killed it my girlfriends HTC desire is red hot all the time for some reason, not sure if it was a design feature to make it atleast useful to keep your leg warm.

The heat is down to it having a 1ghz processor on board, 4th gen iPhone will probably get hot too (if anybody can use them with the lack of data capabilities when it's in your hand lol)
on a serious note tho I purchased 2 because my friend has an iPhone aswell so we both saved £4
and surely its worth the £2 postage to USA to get a new item that cost you about £15?
As previously stated im having no issues with my signal.
Ok, so who reckons this is why Steve was struggling in the Keynote with his connectivity? Nothing to do with other people using the WiFi, more to do with the fact he didn't have a bumper on it ..
Signals Sweet over here.
