Apple Clarifies iPhone 4 Signal Strength Woes, But I'm Still Confused

Apple is telling iPhone 4 users that there is no reception problem, just a software problem. Why, then, are so many people experiencing problems?

So Apple has finally issued an official response to all the chatter about the iPhone 4 seeming to lose signal strength when you hold it by the lower left-hand corner. The gist of Apple's letter to iPhone 4 users: There is no reception problem. Instead, the iPhone 4-all iPhones, actually-sometimes displays more bars than it should, leading users in areas with poor coverage to think that reception is better than it really is. The company will fix this in a software update.

 



Well, okay, except...I think this will do little or nothing to end the controversy. There are numerous bits of data on the Web that involve the iPhone 4 dropping calls or suffering dramatic slowdowns when held by the lower left-hand corner, not simply displaying a signal meter indicator that may be overoptimistic.
