Death Grip hysteria may end Monday with iOS 4.01
Software fix in the works
The fix is expected to address a issue in iOS 4 related to radio frequency calibration of the baseband. Readers who saw the original forum discussions say that the issue is believed to occur when switching frequencies; because the lag is allegedly not calibrated correctly, it results in the device reporting "no service" rather than switching to the frequency with the best signal to noise ratio.
iOS 4 introduced some enhancements to how the baseband selects which frequencies to use, so it makes sense that the error may have crept into those changes. Additionally, this explains why iOS 4 has also caused similar problems for iPhone 3GS users.

Seems that some of you that have held steadfast to this being just a software issue that can be corrected with a firmware update may have been correct!
Lets all hope so! We will certainly find out soon enough! My fingers are crossed for sure.
