Apple's Answer To iPhone 4's Signal/Reception Problem

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.

Do you think Apple has made a right move by giving free “bumper case”? What could be the solution after Sept 30th? Please share if you know anymore things and let everyone know about it 🙂 After all Sharing is caring 🙂

    Giving out Bumper cases was the only choice left with them, they should have tested their iphone well before unveiling it. But still i have heard that not all people face this problem like @taimurasad. He isn't facing that problem as he states in his blog

    I agree Apple could have done more testing before releasing their newest iPhone. However, America is obsessed with new technology and I think they will continue to buy the phone with the understanding that they will need to also purchase a Bumper case as an accessory.

    With or without antenna issue. Apple still sold a lot of iPhone 4. And the sales will increase more and more. Why? There are lot of loyal Apple fans out there. :P
