Will the iPhone 4 be recalled?
I read on a website "BGR" and theres a story with the title
Why PR is so vital: Apple’s next move is a lose-lose
I am very upset if this does come to be true because i still havent gotten an iPhone because I'm waiting for the white iP4 to be released

I'll choose "Don't Care" as it doesn't effect me
I don't have any issues with my i4, but of
course if they do have a re-call, I'll definitely
switch mine out. I always love a fresh new

Apple won't recall... too arrogant to admit there is a problem... as evident by Job's "just hold it different" statement.
I picked up a bumper the other day and I don't experience the signal/antenna issue anyway.Curmudgeon and Former Member/Participant

Eh..Apple's next move should be to make lemonade.
CR showed them how. Include a bumper with an iphone 4 and all is forgiven for most part. Package it right and consumers will eat it up thinking they're getting more value.
Make some accessories that work with Bumpers and you got another revenue stream.

They should say essentially: our new design has an antenna which may result in signal attenuation. For those in a strong signal area, you are unaffected. For those who are, we are offering a free bumper (or refund to those who have already purchased a bumper as a workaround). In the case that the bumper does not adequately provide a solution, or you do not wish to use a bumper as a remedy, we are offering a full refund even if you are outside the 30 day return window.
That would be doing the right thing, IMO. Otherwise, let the public crucification (rightfully) continue.

Probaly would never happpen , but come up with some sorta non conductive clear coating to put on the attena band ( in manufacturing) to stop the contact from your hand to the attena to stop the problem ( would have to do testing to see what would work best , but i think this is a fairly easy fix)..
The problem is how would it all work out for the aprox 2 million iphone 4's that have already been sold? Maybe something like you can trade your i4 for one with the new coating ( or something along those lines).. I doubt it will happen , but it would make a lot of people happy ..

Oh man, I hope it gets recalled. What would happen if I'm driving my Toyota and using my iPhone 4 at the same time? I think something bad might happen. A hole in the space/time continuum would open up and swallow me whole.Gimme a vector, Victor. I'm coming home. Roger, Roger. Huh?

Won't be recalled, but should be recalled.
I really can't wait for the "fix" to come out so all the people that don't see the issue (when looking at the bars) will suddenly think the update broke their phone when it drops 2 bars in their hand.

some sort of fix, but no recall.
I could see them doing some sort of factory coating on new ones, and maybe an invisible shield sort of sticker and/or a free bumper for the ones out in the world already. I am personally waiting for Incase to release their slider case, and it isn't an issue on mine.
