how is the phone broken sir? multiple tests, not only by apple, show that this is common among every smartphone.

Per Apple


Are you serious??  I have never owned or have heard of anyone ever owning a smart phone that would disconnect a call (even with a weak signal) by holding it in any way.

 



you don;t read the forums much do you - disconnected calls are not limited to smart phones and it is reported on the net, simple research is your friend

I know why they are giving them away. the point im making is that complaint about the wait on something that is free is stupid.


 

 



If you break your phone then you need to wait for it.

 

Have numerous friends and co workers that have the Iphone 4 for personal use - none of them have complained about the phone being "broken"

you are really going to complain about getting something free? completely free. don't have to pay shipping, nothing? these were 30$ plus shipping. lol comon man. plus every smartphone has an antenna that goes in and out when you cover it. people are making a huge deal out of nothing just because its apple and an iphone. if it was any other phone no one would have said anything.


Keep in mind that the case, for some people, is the difference between making & holding a call or not.  So to tell them they can't get reliable reception until Octoboer is no small issue. Yes, the can buy a case on their own in the interim, but then what's the point of the free offer for them?

 

To those that think the reception issue is not an issue because THEY haven't had the issue, think again.  There are many many people who live in areas where the issue for this phone IS different than other phones.   I've seen it and many others have too.  With the case it is a different issue, but I don't think people should attack others for indicating they do have an issue.

Re: Free Bumper...What A Joke!!!

Steve jobs mentioned during the news conference that the can make enough of the bumpers so that is why they also have some third party cases. And I went to order mine says ships 3 to 5 weeks. I agree with the other post this annenta is blown out of control and if you are have the problem just use you right hand the you will be fine

They should not wait at all. If their phone is broken, and they cannot get it fixed to their satisfaction, they should return it for a full refund and get a different phone.

 

My phone isn't broken. If yours is, get it fixed, or get a different phone.

Why did you get the bumper?

You should of chosen a Speck case.  It would arrive faster.  You messed up. LoL


 

I chose the Speck case, the ship date is Oct 8.

 

I got a cheap bumper at Best Buy after the launch.

 

You fail.

Re: Free Bumper...What A Joke!!!

A definitions of broken is "not functioning properly".  Apple's free fix for the problem is months away, so the original posters complaint is valid.

I actually agree!!

Yeah its free, but why wait so long to ship! I mean we have been suffereing long enough they should ship em asap, and a free case as a solution is pretty wack to me in the first place, but I still ordered one

Well, actually, antennas that are impeded should drop in sensitivity, so the antenna design is functioning perfectly.

 

The poster is whining about not getting a free case or bumper FAST ENOUGH for a $200-$300 device. He could spend $2 and get a cheap one, or even use $0.02 worth of tape, if he happens to be someone with very sweaty palms who always holds his phone in a death grip, in a marginal signal area.
