If it makes you feel better to say they are in denial then so be it. I think otherwise.

Most PR experts will say admitting the problem is the first obvious step. There's nothing worse than for those having the problem to see a company just ignoring or denying it.
The next obvious step is offering a suitable solution. Of course noone but Apple has a clue what that might be. But i would think that Apple would want to go beyond "suitable" (but not a recall) so as not to cause any further damage to their ONE brand that is worth billions.

Gripping any mobile phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas
That's not a lie, that's fact.
It IS the way you're holding the phone, hold it differently and it doesn't happen, that's also fact.
Seems you can't tell the difference between facts and lies...

I see their announcement as denial and an attempt to minimize this situation. PERIOD! That is my opinion, but may disagree and that is fine. But I've seen nothing to change my opinion at this point. Maybe Friday will be the day that I will.

I dont think there will be a FULL BLOWN recall ( where they scrap the i4 attena design and go with something completely different), and at this point ( as you said) Apple is the only one knows whats going to happen .
I would be willing to bet that they have some sorta Non Conductive coating that they will apply to the attena band on all future batches of iphone 4 .. I am not sure how they will work out the logistics on the over 2 million iphone 4's that they have already sold..( maybe some sorta trade in for peeps that already have a i4 i dunno)..
We shall see whats going to be in less than 24 hrs ...

Its not just about addressing the issue because its being reported in the MSM, Apple is a public company and as such, is expected to follow guidelines set forth from regulatory bodies (i.e., the SEC). There may be some requirements of disclosure if there is in fact a problem that their lawyers feel is material to the company.

there is wayyyyy tooooooooo manyyyyyyyyyyy APPLE FANBOYS in here and NOT ENOUGH REALIST... i frankly dont give a flying f*** who lied or what! The fact that the matter is, Apple has a major issue on their hands with the antenna and proximity sensor issues so they need to fix it whether its a recall or whatever, just fix it!! Simple as that!!

You know I read through all this and I don't see anyone complaining. I see folks being real about the issues that are impacting their phones. Since when is discussing issues complaining. Are you one of those blind Apple fan boys that because you can't seem to recreate the issues that means everyone else should just go to hell. Not going to happen!

Who's the fanboy?
If I was as unhappy as you I'd be off to a different company, why do you stick around fanboy?

If consumers as you say don't have the problem and aren't bothered, then I don't see them returning the phone just because Apple admits to there being a problem. Especially if they say what you said, that this doesn't impact everyone and for those it does here is your solution.

need to admit there is an issue. More people
don't have the issue than those who do. If
you have an issue, you have the right to
return it, which most aren't taking advantage
and want to complain, whine and moan for
something they can easily return.
Why are they lying? How are they lying? How
do they explain why for the "majority", it isn't
an issue? Obviously those with the issue are
still keeping the device, so even if there is
an issue, why would they admit it?
You would feel better if they did admit it and
I would feel better if they didn't. Why
should Apple choose your side over mine?
Are you more important to Apple than I am?
Sorry, thought I had sent this earlier.
