BoyGeniusReport has just reported a very interesting conversation between a reader and supposedly Steve Jobs. This reader known as Tom became somewhat popular when posting a troubleshooting video on Youtube, demonstrating the loss of signal on an iPhone 4 while holding the phone on the left side. According to the article, Tom was contacted by Apple and ask not to post any further videos.

Steve Jobs counters:

You are most likely in an area with very low signal strength.

Our reader again:

Stop with jackass comments. I have has every iphone made. They all had a bad signal but this is the so much worse X3. The whole country is is in a “low signal strength” in reality… all but apple campus and your house it seems? AT&T maps are a joke. I am in “excellent” to “good” coverage and on my iPhone 1, Iphone 3G, and my iPhone 3Gs, I could at least make a telephone call. After all, it is a phone. Iphone 4…. 5 bars….. touch the phone… ZERO bars call drops.

Steve. IT DOES NOT WORK! Geezzz I hope this this is not really you. Are we on a different MHz? I have yet to see an iPhone [4] work in Richmond when you hold it in your hand. It is not “isolated”. I was a big fan. But I am done.

Steve responds once again:

You may be working from bad data. Not your fault. Stay tuned. We are working on it.

riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight... some random guy txts the head of a multi billion dollar corporation and he just happens to text back?


i havent had problems yet and it sux for those that have... but o well... take it back... get ur droid or whatever u want...
Rumors are running wild right now with these issues. An though the problem should have never been there to start with I think the problem is alittle over rated.
The Internet is a great medium before the internet came along I had to fly to sf California Mac world spend 2000 dollars to visit not including accommodation and meals just to get information that was 6 months before we would see it in Australia.

Today that information is instant. The problem is the Internet is wide open to abuse and this type of abuse by people whom want to make money out of probems is amazing This guy that text steve jobs well was suppose to text Steve, was the same person that did the stuff on the lady that could not pay cash for an iPad He is a worm making money by selling his stuff to mags and newspapers. He is like some one doing a streaking naked at a football game to get attention. I do not tolerate people whom make money like this unfortunately while he is basking in the Bahamas lying in the sun making money from his actions the rest of the world makes yet another big thing from his post.

Lets move on let the tide come in and wait and see My experience with Apple since 1976 my first Apple and as a specialist reseller since 1993 that I can guarantee you that Apple will fix the issue because that is Apple is perfect at.
