    Were you asleep during the press conference, or were the numbers too hard for you to understand? It was shown that many of the phones out on the market show the same problems. the phone drops less than one percent more calls than the 3GS. But to listen to you people, you feel like you won the lottery if you can actually get a call to connect.

    When I had to pay $29 for my White Bumper I was not very happy.

    But now that its free I love it, rofl.
    Makes you wonder how many like me got it, sold it locally and will now get a refund to boot!

    Change "white" to "blue" and you'd have exactly what I would've said.

    They did everything they could to solve the problem for people who can't understand it. They also showed other popular devices including the BB 9700, displaying the same issue. Has RIM given their users a choice of free cases? A refund on cases purchased? No? ... Well, what about Samsung? ... HTC?

    It's a non-issue.

    ... Hmmm...

    Otacorb. You should really offer that refund to your customer. It would be good karma and nothing out of your pocket.

    I think Apple has done what it could, short of doing a massive recall, which was simply never going to happen.

    My question is...what about the proximity sensor issue that has been as commonly reported as the dang reception one? Where's the "fix" for that?

    Who cares what others do,,,, I didnt buy my phone from them did I ? I went to Apple cause of their great service and quality .

    And they didnt solve anything. They found a way to twist this around and get away the cheap way. You know you wouldnt have been very happy with this "solution" if YOU were affected by the problem.
    Mark my words, the initial iPhone 5 sales will be half of the iPhone 4, because of this.

    They will send us bumpers we can put on our ears to make the phone detect it better

    I am happy with the solution.

    The press conference had some truth, some spin, and some omissions. But if you were expecting more than this, you weren't being that realistic. Ultimately, this is a reasonable response to the situation, and should alleviate much of the problem for most people. For others, well, no one is forcing you to buy an iPhone.

    I am curious as to who they will use to out source case options. Will it be a $30 limit, or will the "bumper" case be the most expensive (retail) option?

    Didn't they?

    Surely that's a solution?

    With respect Behshad, if you are so dissatisfied with your 'phone, why on earth don't you return it, get your money back and then buy yourself a different new one that you won't have to keep complaining about?

    Then you'll be a happier person, free from worries and able to get on and enjoy life again.

    oh my happiness isnt affected by this, ONE bit, trust me....after all , its just a phone.
    Im just disappointed in Apple, whom I have trusted and supported for years.

    The fact that they admited that theyre NEW iphone 4 antenna technology is WORSE than 3GS , shows that Apple didnt do a full product test and instead went to the "they'll buy it cause its iPhone" route

    Hello, first post. I'm a transplant from BlackBerry Bold and Crackberry.com Forum.

    I went to the local apple store and picked up a black bumper after Jobs' announcement. I figure I can get a refund and the stores will run out of them very quickly. All this even though my iPhone 4 hasn't arrived yet. Ordered online from ATT July 10...

    Also, remember guys, I'll go out on a limb and say you'll need to provide a proof of purchase for your Bumper. So make sure you keep your receipts, and don't forget that when you buy from the Apple Retail Store, you can have your receipt emailed to you

    It won't be receipts. It will be account and serial numbers.

    nope, dude at the apple store said you would need your receipt as well. You can have it printed at the store or emailed or both.

    ... It's only going to be available online, which they said during the keynote today. Have computer gained consciousness enough to read our receipts? I don't think so...

    I'm happy. I wasn't really having any trouble and now I get a free bumper to use if I choose. It's good.

    for those of you unhappy...instead of crying on the internet why not just return the phone and move on? seems much easier and cost effective...just sayin ;-)

    I'll take the free bumper/case/what ever. But I, like Steve, cannot produce the death grip "issue" on my new iPhone 4 so it doesn't really matter to me. On top of that I use a case anyway. The update to fix the bar reporting is also very welcome.

    For those of you that already bought your bumper, definitely keep your receipts and keep them handy. You'll need proof that you did buy one in order to get the refund.

    I bought the bumper cover with my iPhone on launch day but returned it because it was so think that I couldn't plug my car adapter or headphone jack that attach to my computer speakers. I ended up going with the invisible shield and love it.
