I agree on the probability of free bumpers. It would allow Apple to placate everyone, still hedge on any actual design problem, and stop the neverending run of 'Apple doesn't care'.
Recall just won't happen. Too many implications, too much hassle, and sets a precedent.

A recall is not necessary. If you aren't satisfied with the design, take it back. Then get a new one when/if they fix it of come out with a new model.
Apple has extended the return period to 30 days and waived the restocking fee specifically for this reason.
Seriously. A recall is only necessary if you're stuck with the product. And you are not.
I'd like to see them offer free cases or bumpers and take the phone off the market until there's a fix. At least admit the problem if there I one. But for now I'm satisfied with the existing voluntary recall (return it for a refund.)

They say "undamaged." I'd consider that undamaged. Also if they give you a hard time raise a stink that the only reason you're returning it is because of the defective design. Don't take no for an answer unless the phone is broken, smashed, or water damaged.
I will add that I will not be returning mine. I feel I have a good enough grasp on the issue, I don't have a problem, and I use a case anyway. I'm satisfied with the workaround personally.
But if anyone has concerned or issues they should return it while you still can. Don't settle for being unhappy with your $200-$300 2 year contract purchase. You don't have to.

To be honest, I dont experience much of the known issue. I too could use a case and would probably be more than fine. However, I did initially want a White iPhone. Maybe I can return this one and hope by the time the White one is released all issues will be addressed. I would just hope I dont have to wait very long otherwise I'll keep this old thing.

I do not think there should be a recall. I for one will be keeping mine and am happy I got it.
Most people were going to get a case any way so what's all the hubbub about? I get screaming 3G signal in places I've never had it before. All I have to do is not touch the bottom left corner...I can do that, no problem. How many of you ever held your phone high in the air just to try and get a better signal. Y'all that are complaining are just part of the mob mentality. Your mad because the media Said you should be. Well if you di not like the phone please return it for a full refund. End of problem.

I hope it gets recalled but I don't think it will.. For me its really bad in some areas.. I have a bumper and still notice no signal in some areas, that coupled with a dropped call(not even holding the phone) or two each day drives me a tad crazy.
I gave my gf my old Blackberry and I now have to ask her to look things up if we are in a building with bad reception. Which isn't a fun or happy feeling.
That all being said I still spend about $60 dollars on apps so I guess im going to just deal with it.. Who knows maybe Otterbox or someone else will make a case that insulates the antenna. lol

I've had iPhones since the first one. I've not owned a 3GS. I now own the iPhone 4. I do experience the signal drop phenomenon on the meter in weak signal areas and have had to ask folks to wait, while I repositioned my hand on the phone. My experience with my phone is that the Bumper Case makes little difference. My meter will drop with the bumper on or off.
Will Apple recall the phone? No.
