Article: Uh Oh, Is Apple's iPhone 4 A Lemon?
iPhone 4 is off to a rough start (sales numbers, excepted).
The phone is barely in the hands of consumers, and there have been widespread gripes from early adopters. Some of these aren't one-off whines either--in one case, they involve a legitimate concern that seems to affect every unit.
The biggest complaint to emerge is that the... haha you have to read the rest at the link below.

When I grab the phone by the sides. The signal indicator shows a reduction in signal strength yet I can still download data, make calls etc...are we sure it is actually blocking the signal or is it just fooling the signal strength indicator?

Well it was a one foot drop according to the article. I would think the new Gorilla glass could handle it. Might want to make it out of plastic if it will be that fragile. I have dropped my 3G phone from higher than that just yesterday with no problem. iFix youri did a test that is somewhat disheartening. Check it out. It is on the main page today. They better fix the signal issue. That is the last thing AT&T needs with their rep as having a sub par network.

You know what I laugh at, the thinly veiled jealousy of not getting the new iPhone while masquerading around as someone who is actually concerned about early adoption.
I am sorry too! After reading your "copy and paste" response more then several times (on this forum alone) of being "happy that you are from Canada and will get a new iPhone with all the kinks worked out". I just couldn't help myself.
Give it a break man. The new phone is the jazz, it's awesome, we have it and you want it (and will eventually get it!) we understand. No need to repeat yourself a thousand times!

This is getting me enraged now, I seriously think these people need to clue the F in. Just because you post a picture of a shattered phone and say you dropped it from 1 ft doesn't make it so. We don't know who you are? we didn't see you drop it and it may just be a way to get traffic up. I find it hard to believe that iFixYouri or whatever had to drop the phone 3 times from 3.5 ft. and yet this time it was only from 1 ft. If someone wants to break something it will break, **** man until I get my phone in my hands or hear about the millions of people that this would be affecting STFU. Ok so maybe this was true take it to the Apple store, no manufacturing process is perfect, they were cranking these things out to get to Japan, Germany, UK, France and US so there will be some defective ones. The signal thing I find perplexing because I remember way back when I had old dummyphones holding the antennae used to increase the reception because it used your body like an anntennae LOL or atleast that's what we all thought but again until I have a phone and have the problem I'm not worried about it. I mean just look at the title of the article, tell me that's not to get traffic? it's not like they are truly concerned about us consumers.
It's not nice to make fun of us Canadians yes we have to wait 1 month maybe 2 and we may need to get that frustration out in the only way possible wishing we had it in our hands.

I mean come on....like others have said this is crazy to think now-a-days if you drop a smart phone enough times it WILL NOT break. It WILL break and if you drop it deal with it and replace it or get a dumb phone that wont break so easily.

Safari acts weird for me a lot too. Don't like it. They need to fix a few things back to how they were. I especially HATE the new auto-complete, it doesn't go by title or by URL, and it doesn't eliminate sites that no longer apply to your input... Really annoying!
