    I got my new Iphone4 today and I got it all sycned up and activated and when I actually went to use it I noticed my bars were almost zero and then when I would move around it would say no service!

    I even went outside where my 3G would always get a good signal now my new iphone ends up dropping the call and then switching to edge.

    Anyone else experiencing problems with service on their new phone?

    Something is up with 3G right now. Turn 3G data
    off and your EDGE should be working fine.

    iPhone 4 Loses Reception When You Hold It By The Antenna Band?

    Read this, I have actually been able to verify this as legit. Test it yourself. I even used a thin towel around the phone and when my hand doesn't come in contact with the aluminum antenna band, the reception remains perfect. If I touch it with my hand the signal just about drops down to nothing.

    WOW! This is not good!

    Interesting. I hear some have the issue and some don't. I do know that Apple has acknowledged that they do have a signal bug that will be fixed. In other words, it shows one bar when the signal would allow for 3.

    Maybe it's a sign of iron-poor blood.

    I hope that is the case, but we got 5 at the office today and every single one of us can replicate this.

    I did hear about the signal bug and if that is the case, they truly need to roll that out sooner rather than later.

    Yeah there is a lot of info about touching the bands is causing a problem with reception.

    I wonder if apple an att are aware of this problem.

    I have had a few dropped calls and I had a 3G and the service on the 3G was better than this was!!

    I'm kinda worried now!!

    Its a design flaw that Apple will need to address. Short term fix is to use the bumpers.
