    Well done Apple, lovely message - "look, phones considerably cheaper than ours also have the same problem!"

    Cock up by Apple. Yes, if you deathgrip those phones you see degradation. On the iPhone 4 you can get that by just touching the gap. That does not happen on any internal antenna phone.

    and even then it was a false statement. Ergo apple pulled all the "video" evidence that other phones were just as bad. No one was buying their hogwash.

    Yeah, all that video evidence is gone from their site.

    Supposedly, iPhones used with networks other than AT&T do not have the signal drop issue. :shrug:

    ^One theory is there is a bad batch of iPhones out there, as not all them are affected the same.
