    The guys over at Engadget contacted Apple over the reception issue when you hold the bottom left side of the iPhone 4. Apple response was:

    So there you have it; change the way you hold your iPhone 4 or buy Apple's(or any other) iPhone 4 case, Bumpers. I, personally, don't seem to be having any reception problems, but I've heard putting a case on it fixes the problem.

    I realize Steve Jobs is a busy man (understatement) - but to be honest these "couple word" replies he sends to people, especially with this type of information in them is really getting on my nerves.

    If you can't give a good response, don't respond.

    If you are going to belittle legitimate complaints, let someone else respond with at least a hint of care.

    This is a design flaw... and yah, it may not be the end of the world but touting this awesome antenna design you should have figured out a better solution then just "don't hold it that way"

    Just my 2c.

    That's just annoying, but when making calls I never hold it like that to block the antenna so it's ok not really a prob

    buy a bumper and end the problem. The phone is still inexpensive for all it gives you... the only other solution get an evo and not have antennae problems, just carry around a battery backup source..

    I've tried to short out the antenna, cell signal stays the same. The wifi only drops one bar.
