With subsequent reboots and messing around I can get the iPhone 4 to connect to the configured network and receive a DHCP address. The situation is as I described for the "default" network:
iPhone connected the first time. It was assigned an IP via DHCP. This connection provided no Internet connectivity.
iPhone did not connect the second time and assigned itself an IP address.
iPhone did not connect the third time and threw up the "Unable to join the network." error.
iPhone will now only assign itself IP addresses.

Okay, I've reset my iPhone *completely* to factory settings. (Using the Restore option in iTunes and iOS 4.3.3.)
It still will not connect to my Time Capsule. First attempt it assigned itself its own IP. Subsequent attempts I've been receiving the "Unable to join the network" error message. I've not yet had it be assigned an IP address via DHCP, but I presume that if I'm successful at that it won't actually provide Internet connectivity.
Factory reset iPhone 4, latest firmware.
Factory reset Time Capsule, latest firmware.
IT DOESN'T WORK.
One of the following is true:
a. My iPhone isn't working correctly.
b. My Time Capsule isn't working correctly.
c. Apple did absolutely no verification testing on the new Time Capsules.
Can anyone confirm an iPhone 4 working with a 4th Generation Time Capsule?

I had the same problem for ages, and after going slightly mad, I found a simple answer. In the TC I changed the Channel from 'AUTOMATIC' setting, and input channels 7 and 44 (selected randomly). Iphone 4 connected immediately, and everything works fine.

That worked fo rme too, thanks for the tip. This has been very frustrating. Are there any drawbacks to not having the Airport Extreme on Automatic?

I've now had the system configured like this for 2 months, and absolutely no problems. I recently added another 2 Airport Express', and no problems again.
