Whether or not you own an iPhone 4, if you’re aware of the latest reviews, you know that many consumers are complaining about dropped calls and weaker signals compared to their iPhone 3G/3GS. Apple has basically replied with two responses – a.) you’re holding the phone “incorrectly” and b.) there’s a software glitch which shows more bars than there really are.
Am I the only one that finds this rather hilarious? I never knew there was an incorrect way to hold a smart phone. If I’m paying $200 (subsidized) for a handset, I want to hold it however I want! This seems more like a hardware issue which was brushed aside. 🙄
And a software glitch which exaggerates the signal strength? Way to go AT&T. If there were ever a time that your underpowered network reached the peak of its humiliation, it’s now. Better trap as many customers as you can in a two year contract before the iPhone goes to Verizon’s LTE network. 😛
