Apple to hold special iPhone 4 press conference on Friday

 

By Jim DalrympleJuly 14, 2010, 5:04 pm PT

Apple on Wednesday invited select press to a special press conference to be held this Friday in California.
 
Apple would only say that the press conference would be regarding the iPhone 4. No other information was available when I spoke with them tonight.

Of course, the iPhone 4 has been accused of having poor reception by many users that got the device in the last couple of weeks.

 

 

I hope they decide to do the right thing regarding the antenna issue ~ free bumpers???

Not really....Jobs is just talking about the antenna issue and how ALL smartphones seem to have that same issue....according to him they spent about 22 days looking into it....so it seems that while they were 'looking' into it, they stopped sending phones which is the probable reason of why the 'BO' status on most of our orders...smh....

According to Jobs, they will reevaluate in September after most people have a bumper or case.  He said that 0.55% of the 3 million iPhone 4 users have called AppleCare about the antenna issue.  But they want to make ALL their customers happy.

According to Consumer Reports' studies, the bumper did fix the problem.  Which is why Apple is giving out free bumpers....

HAHAHAHA when asked if after Sept. 30th customers are going to have to buy a case, Steve Jobs said that he doesn't know....maybe they will reevaluate....."maybe we will have a better idea or Eminem will come out with a band-aid for the corner and everyone will want that"....lmao....this guy has a sense of humor....

Sounds like phones released after that date might have some kind of internal fix in place that may preclude the need for a bumper...that, or perhaps if by that date people are still complaining that the bumper didn't fix the issue for them, then Apple will reevaluate the need to give out free bumpers to (new) iPhone 4 customers from that point on.

Only 0.55% reported to AppleCare on the reception issue?

Guess Jobs doesn't want to include the Apple's board forum percentage.

Anyone want to take a guess on the percentage there? I'm saying 5.55% total.

would be willing to bet that the 5.00 percent you are including are repeat posts where as the number reported by apple is based on a single user per report

And remember, most people come to boards because of a problem, not usually because they want to say great job pple or at&t.  I came here originally about a battery issue on my 3G ....
