Apple conducted a small Press Conference at their head quarters in Cupertino, California today. Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs was there to host this conference and announced that Apple will be giving away every user a free “Bumper Case” with an iPhone 4 to account for the Antenna issue till 30th September. And for those who’ve already bought a case, Apple will give a full refund! If you are unhappy with your iPhone’s performance even after using the case, then you can bring your phone undamaged to Apple to get a full refund.

iPhone 4 dropped from 3 bars to 1 bar when held in a way that attenuated the signal.

The Touch Me Not Spot:

Apple also gave a demonstration that iPhone 4 is not the only Smartphone that suffers this design issue. Jobs gave a demo of other smartphones like Blackberry Bold, HTC Droid Eris, Samsung Omnia IIand even iPhone 3GS that lost signal when held in a certain specific way.
