IPhone 4 Reception Issues. If you have been watching the news lately then you know that Apple has recently released the IPhone 4. All across the country there were thousands of people standing in line waiting to get their hands on the phone. When they were finally able to use the phone themselves they discovered that they loved everything about it. Well almost everything. There seems to be a problem that keeps cropping up in conversation when people discuss the phone. The iphone 4 reception problem is the fact that if you place your hand in a certain position on the phone, you will not be able to get a clear reception with the metal antennae that is wrapped around the base of the phone. Apple has recently spoken up about the iphone 4 reception problem and gave some suggestions on how it can be fixed.
It is not a problem
The first statement that was released by Steve Jobs was that the signal being blocked by the phone was not a problem. He stated that the fact is, many smart phones that are released on the market have a similar problem so this is not such a big deal. Some of the people who bought an Apple IPhone 4 were not happy at this rationalization. So the next day you saw thousands of blog post discussing why this is still a problem. So Apple has now responded by giving people a list of ways that they could fix the problems on the phone.
Hold it a different way
Sometimes the easiest solution is not the most obvious. Apple has issued a press release that has stated the first thing that you should do when you run into this iPhone 4 reception problem with the phone is to hold it a different way. While this may seem silly to some people, the solution has been reported to actually work. This is at best a workaround since there are a lot of people out there who like holding their cell phones a certain way and are not comfortable in another position. And there have also been reports that holding the phone different than how it is being blocked is not as easy an option for people who are left handed. So since this solution is not going to help everyone out there, Apple also issued another answer to the problem.
Buy a case for the phone
Another way that has been reported in stopping the decreased signal issue is to place a case over the phone. The signal problem stems from your body completing a circuit that disrupts the signal. With a case over the phone the signal is never completed and there is no issue. While Apple has promoted this as a solution, most cases cost an extra $29. People are hesitant to pay that much and think that Apple should bear some of the cost.
We will see if Apple is able to issue some kind of update that will change the problem as it stands now. Overall, the IPhone 4 is still a great phone and very much worth the money. This little issue aside, you are sure to be happy with the phone when you purchase one.
