    Default I'm still losing bars on my 4S

    I thought Apple fixed the "antenna gate" bs with the 4S.. Yet I find that holding it comfortably, bars drop out one by one... Very very annoying

    They did fix this issue. Bars don't mean much unless you are unable to make or receive calls clearly, have unusable data ect.... I would not consider it a problem if your iPhone is only dropping one bar.

    The issue was fixed. Are you unable to make or receive calls?

    Yes I am, but keep in mind I lose two bars at the most. Sometimes 3.

    Yet Steve Jobs answer was to hold it a different way...

    This was in reference to the iPhone 4 and not the iPhone 4S. Perhaps the issue is related to your service provider?

    It seems that most of your posts are more of a paranoia type postings of questions that you really have nothing to worry about. I don't think there is any of us that dont lose bars from time to time depending on way too many variables to count.

    As long as you can make and receive calls clearly and do whatever else you wish to do reasonably I would not worry about it and just enjoy your phone.

    I'm with Jaguarr. If you're able to make and receive calls then I wouldn't worry about the bars.
