Apple to iPhone 4 users: Hold it right!

Apple issued a statement concerning iPhone 4 signal issue. Basically it recommends that you just don’t hold it near the lower left corner, now thats a pertty technical solution!

Apple says:

Gripping any phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas. This is a fact of life for every wireless phone. If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases.

Also, Steve Jobs had sent a replay to one of the users concering the same problem saying:

“Just avoid holding it that way.”

So there you have it. Problem solved >.> (Holding sarcasim sign.)

  1. reading the title made me laugh, but reading teh whole thing made me laugh harder!! It’s really phunny how Apple managed to make this problem a fault of the users!!

    way to go Apple!

    Thanks a lot for the lulz!

  2. You have got to be freak’n kidding me. I knew that there was something wrong with the whole iPhone 4 design. After the whole Gizmondo fiasco and the launch of iPhone 4 where the phone itself did NOT receive WIFI signal and Steve Jobs says that it was because of the people using up the WIFI in the room. I say, “Bull Crap”. If a football or a hockey stadium can easily place WIFI routers in the whole area and everybody is happy surfing and posting updates then there shouldn’t be absolutely no problem what so ever at the WWDC convention.

    I never heard or read proof of concept that indeed placing the antenna on the side of the phone will deliver better reception.

    I feel sorry for the people that spent or pre-ordered the iPhone 4. Hope they all learn a valuable lesson.

    1. DON’T you EVER hype up an Apple product EVER again!
    2. Never jump in with the Apple Fan Boys wagon.
    3. Do some research and stop listen or watching freak’n youtube videos on people claiming “THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST THING!!!”

  3. Even though this is a major issue, I doubt fanboys and a big portion of the people here will care. it simply doesn’t make a difference as long as it’s form apple or is an iPhone.
