unwatchable > Apple again

They reported on the news that the aerial issue is actually a display bar issue on the BBC news. I'm with Nicky, I think that's bollocks. If that was the case the signal wouldn't be lost but it is.

What's also funny is how they said the aerial was revolutionary. But the E71 has had the same design for 2 years. And also suffers from the aerial issue. Mine does.

Apple carefully diverted the discussion away from dropped calls. Who cares if the bars go up and down? If the new shiny thing drops calls, either due to signal/grip problems, or faulty face-detection — that's the serious issue and so far, Apple's side-stepped completely.

I was actually going to buy the iPhone 4 (having never owned a iPod Touch or iPhone before) and on hearing all this, I was put way off!

I'm looking into android now...

@Mac Idiot

Thats true because i even heard that this bar issue has been a bug since earlier versions of IOS, therefore, the issues that customers are having that they didn't have with their previous iphones proves that this bar issue is totally unrelated.

If the iphone 4 has signalling issues then apple could lower the bar to cover them, as they would be able to say it only works when you have a good signal, however, of course this wouldn't improve the usability or solve the actual underlying problem.

I don't make all that many phone calls.

If I can get a droid for under £250 then I will be happy... might get one today (or should I spend the money on laptop memory...? No - I'll get my dad to buy the laptop memory and pretend it just magically turned off the day he arrives back in the UK)...

droid = you have been warned

(read other thread regarding memory, like we said it probably is your graphics)
