Currently Being ModeratedOct 28, 2010 8:07 AM (in response to Elohim)I'm a journalist, so I took the oportunity to ask all persons I met for a few days that I saw had iPhone4.
5 out of 5 had the problem with touching the phones buttons on display, while in a call.
This study could be broaden - I bet the results would be pretty much similar.iOS 4

Everyone with the issue should REPORT this in the link below:
Perhaps then Apple will realize how serious this is.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2010 12:38 PM (in response to Nubz N.)It's a design/hardware/manufacturing issue. Affected my first iPhone4 severely. Not a single problem with the replacement phone I got 4 weeks ago. Same software on both. If you are able, I would insist on a replacement; repeatedly if necessary. Some of the phones work as intended.Dell vostro 1500, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 1:24 AM (in response to dbk9999)Just a point about the argument that, "If it is software, Apple would have fixed it by now".
We all know that the OS was not properly handling alarms when Australia switched off daylight savings time. Should be an easy fix - I mean, no hardware should be involved and it would just require that software that worked before be put back in.
Yet Europe just changed off daylight savings time and the problem remains!
Seems to me that "simple software" problems are not necessarily fixed promptly.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.2), http://picturehawaii.blogspot.com/2010_09_01_archive.html

Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2010 1:52 PM (in response to Nubz N.)A friend of mine who was very annoyed with the PS issue, installed the GM 4.2 today. And guess what?! Not a singe problem at all with the PS during 4 or 5 calls today!!! With 4.1 almost every call got muted or somebody got "face called" … Now everything seems fine!
@dbk9999: You've got entirely too much free time on your hands, but I really appreciate your efforts thx!MBA 1,6, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2010 3:17 PM (in response to rouven Schmidt)Unfortunately, I have a friend with 4.2 and he reports no change - and he knows and has tried my tests which are the only consistent way to measure that I've seen.
Remember, after EVERY update, including before 4.1, there were some people who said the problem was fixed even though those updates had nothing to do with fixing it!
And every time we also have people who say updates made it worse!
It will take a lot more reports to really give us a good feel one way or the other.
Oh, and I do have too much free time - I'm retired! But I do some part-time work to stay busy.
I haven't done any new testing in a long time, but with 4.2 coming out, I intend to redo the tests on both my ip4 and 3G before upgrading and then do it again on each after upgrading (assuming 4.2 is also for the 3G).Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.2), http://picturehawaii.blogspot.com/2010_09_01_archive.html
