In case it wasn't obvious enough from Apple's agitated response to our question during today's iPhone 4 Q&A session in Cupertino, there's no software fix in the pipeline for the antenna issues that are plaguing users today. A prior report in the New York Times seemed fairly confident that the troubles could (and would) be solved in the near term by a simple software update, but the company's own Scott Forstall called said report "patently false." So, there you have it -- the only thing that'll be fixed via software is how big your smallest bar of signal is. Beyond that, you'll need to grab some Duct tape, a free case or a white glove if you're looking to avoid attenuation entirely.
I posted the link to video.
But, gotta love the “iPhone 4 Antenna Song”. Kicks wuz butz:
Ahhh... Thanks for the Youtube link. I don’t have QuickTime installed, and prefer to keep it that way.
“The iPhone 4 is not experiencing MASS RETURNS or COMPLAINTS.”
Since something is going to happen September 30, either a new model or just back to “screw you, buy your own bumper”, the logical thing to do is to return your phone and buy another in early September to start your 30-day return clock running again.
IF they have some kind of hardware fix in the works with another model, I would not want to be stuck because they ran the clock out.
