Verizon iPhone 4 Reportedly Falls Prey To Death Grip

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
You'd think that after protracted debacle of the AT&T iPhone 4's attenuation problems, Apple would have made absolutely certain to fix the issue completely before the Verizon version hit. But this iLounge video indicates otherwise. Antennagate 2.0?
To be fair, this hasn't been a widely reported issue either in reviews or by word of mouth. So let's take this video—convincing demonstration though it is—with a grain of salt. Like you needed another reason to wait for iPhone 5 anyway. - via Gizmodo

Simca returns from the dead?

I guess it's just a design flaw with the iphone the easily gets fixed with a case or it just goes to show that not every products from them will be 100% perfect.

Already discussed in the News section.

Put a case on it, like 95% of the owners will do anyway.

If you think Verizon's network is bad, you should try AT&T's.
