I was messing with a mates iPhone 4 over the weekend and he showed me the signal thing, but then also showed me that even when the signal dropped on screen, he could still make calls / send texts / etc ..
I have one without a silly bumper and the bars go up and down like yoyo's but it has never once cut out a call on me.
Lovely little thing :D

Well I have the iPhone 4 and I can re-create the signal drop fairly easily. It is really just a matter of shorting the two antenaes in week signal areas. I really do think Apple should be giving the bumpers away free and/or offering to coat the alluminum with a thin protective layer. The lying signal bar is a seperate issue they should have sent a software update down for by now!
As for me, I bought a cheap £5 case from Hong Kong that is 1/5 the price of official bumper and IMHO 5X better. Of course not everyone wants a bumber/case for their phone which is why Apple should offer a free swapout to customers that want a working iPhone4 that can't be shorted so easily.
As for the phone itself, bloody marvalous! Best phone I've ever had and you couldn't pay me enough to take mine away :D

Maybe the emergency services should have a Facebook or Twitter presence, so you can send them a message requesting for help. Geolocation on smart phones could be used to advantage :)
