    iPhone 4 hopes to fix call issues with antenna.

    IPhone Antenna Aims to Better Hold Calls - WSJ.com

    Interesting article.

    I know this was talked about when the WWDC was here. The antenna is supposed to help with dropped calls, reception/signal issues. What do yall think about this?

    Like someone mentioned in another thread, u drop the phone, u have a greater chance to damage the antenna on the first drop.

    I don't think the big worry is going to be whacking the antenna as much as it is shattering the whole phone. Seeing that the phone is made entirely from glass the back can be shattered just as easily as the screen on the front. Could you imagine the first time someone drops it, catches a corner with enough shearing force to shatter the whole phone?

    More money for Apple since they STILL refuse to offer insurance on iPhones. Or did they finally start doing that, which is yet another thing that they should have since day one?

    Wow! That's a pretty serious issue! As if the iPhone and ATT didn't have enough issues with the iPhone and signal.

    Not to mention, the retina screen having yellows spots on them, the back scratching easily, and apparently can crack just as well as the other iPhones.
    Shame shame...
