So it turns out the iPhone 4 has this, um, silly little problem ‚Äì
y‚Äôknow, the one where if you hold the damn thing the wrong way, it‚Äôll drop
a call? Yeah, that one. ‚ÄòCuz SOMEBODY thought it‚Äôd be a cool idea
to build the phone‚Äôs antenna into that dinky wraparound strip of metal.
unless you‚Äôre an anal-retentive Bluetooth earpiece user ‚Äì or an X-Men
member with telekinetic powers ‚Äì how the HELL do you hold an i4 without
touching the antenna?
Apple’s official response to iPhone 4.0 reception issues:
Gripping any mobile phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna
performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on
the placement of the antennas. This is a fact of life for every wireless
phone. If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it
in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black
strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases. <– via Engadget
There, Apple, I Fixed It! Attenuation of its antenna
performance my arse.
You‚Äôre welcome, Apple.
Note: small piece of transparent

if you are looking for more radical solution, just wrap your iphone in
