    Well, I finally got my 32g iP4 black. nice. I love it. However....I have a few issues, as almost everyone else, but I've only seen maybe one or two posts somewhere about most of these issues.

    1 - When making a phone call, I get the dropped calls, move my hand and all is well. I'll need a bumper or case or something - i can fix this.

    2 - while talking on the phone, I held it to my shoulder, I not only dropped that call, but heard something ringing. I had dropped my call & called another person. TWICE!! And there are a few people I don't want to call randomly like that.

    3 - same conversation - I held phone to shoulder again, somehow I hit speaker AND mute!!

    I did pull up my favorites to call the person I was talking to. Maybe if I just dial the number & leave it on home screen? Or...not hold the phone to my shoulder? But gosh, I'd rather it just drop calls, NOT call others!! And speaker phone, and mute?? Whats going on?!?!

    Has anyone seen or heard of this? Any suggestions?

    So far, these are my only issues with the phone. All in all I'm really happy with it!!

    Those are the two issues going around. Reception and proximity sensor problems. Congratulations, you're having a normal i4 experience.

    I'm pretty sure you could just lock the screen when you go into a call and it would have the exact same effect...

    I read somewhere in here that if you restore to original through iTunes this will fix the proximity issue.

    They didn't before. I guess it is an iOS4
    feature. On my 3GS with 3.1.2, all I had
    to do was hit the home key so it can go
    to the home screen, then hit the sleep
    key and it would lock the phone and keep
    me in call.

    Now, on my i4, it just bangs on them.

    some say it works but i think its all in their head cause i know a handful of ppl who tried this including myself and it does not work...not even a little bit. This works better atleast for now: http://forum.tipb.com/iphone-forum/1...ml#post1596947
