    No. It is a design flaw. It had been happening in the US and Europe.

    No, it's software related. A fix will be out next week, then let's see how many android fanboys comment.

    You should consider becoming a fanboy also,... Android OS is far superior to the Apple OS. I'm just saying.

    Yeah, just like ford is better then chevy. It's all in what you like. Both are great phones, I'm not blind like you are. You like android better and I'm happy for you, I currently have a htc droid eris so don't call me a fanboy, I choose what works better for me. PCs for somethings, Mac for others and unRaid for my server. So don't tell me what is better.

    The signal loss is definitely hardware. You can see on the side of the phone. Where you can't touch and Jobs has already told people to hold the phone differently.

    AGAIN no, it's HARDWARE. Software doesn't cause a problem when someones hand is placed on both antennas shorting it OUT. That is hardware. Software MIGHT be able to work around the issue by using a different frequency when that happens, but it doesn't FIX the main issue which is hardware. :rolleyes:

    It's software, the problem is it's not switching correctly. You will see this next week when they release a software fix for it.

    The fix is expected to address a issue in iOS 4 related to radio frequency calibration of the baseband. It is believed to occur when switching frequencies; because the lag is allegedly not calibrated correctly, it results in the device reporting "no service" rather than switching to the frequency with the best signal to noise ratio.

    iOS 4 introduced some enhancements to how the baseband selects which frequencies to use, so it makes sense that the error may have crept into those changes. Additionally, this explains why iOS 4 has also caused similar problems for iPhone 3GS users.

    If the problem were simply hardware related issues of the antenna design, it should only affect iPhone 4 units with that new design and should occur at all times, regardless of the tower type. That is not being observed.

    LOL, you have no clue wtf you are talking about. It is NOT SOFTWARE. Period. :rolleyes: Re-read what I said above. Software adjustment to switch frequencies when it happens to a different one will HELP, but it still WON'T FIX THE ISSUE AT HAND WITH THE EXPOSED ANTENNAS SHORTING OUT.

    Im not so sure its software either...its more likely its a design flaw.
