I found it funny because the videographer went from making a case that the iPhone 5 may have a grounding problem to bashing AT&T for not allowing him to upgrade and buy the device at a subsidized price, and that, in my opinion, is his primary gripe.

I can reproduce it...if I press the phone into my skin. Just sitting there it doesn't do anything. My advice for him is don't set it on your skin lol. Kind of a wierd place to set it if you think about it. Your not going to rest your phone on your arm. I could see your leg but usually your going to have some form of clothing on. Not a big deal of you ask me. I'm willing to bet a lot of phones will do that if your press it into yourself like I had to to reproduce this.

I understand that this happens but almost every cellphone on the planet if you hold it a certain way it loses signal.. I repeated this with many blackberrys android phones and the iPhone.. its just people specifically like to try and make the iPhone look bad ... get over itI answer questions to the best of my knowledge if im wrong please correct me

"If I lay it on my arm, the phone is grounded... Look I lose 2 bars!"
Ummm, what?! I was all set to get an iPhone 5 next month but if I can't carry/balance my phone on my arm it's a deal breaker...

i just tried this and it did the same thing on mine went all the way down to no bars couldn't even text however its not like you would be sitting the phone on your arm or something and yes i agree all phones loose signal one way or another lets sit back and see how this turns out.. i don't get the rant on att dude was on some juice or something and he didn't pay full price it would have been over 600.00 bucks he paid early upgrade price 250.00 and 199.00 deeeededeeeee

I think you should ask for a change and complete your contract.. Better for the entire world.. Don't let Genius Bar to try it on their back.. Maybe the signal goes up...

Everyone wants their 10 minutes of fame. The easiest way to get YouTube hits is put Apple in the description and some kind of issue. I think I'm going to do one because did any of you know that if you balance an iPhone 4 or 4s on your head. Then walk a few steps the ☎ will fall hit the floor and crack the screen or back. If it doesn't happen the first time I guarantee it will eventually happen. *Face Palm*can't upgrade via iTunes check this thread http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-unlo...ml#post1717460
