    I have had every model of iPhone and iPhone4 is by far the worst. I drop 50% of my calls in my home where I typically drop 2%. Please do not make fun of those of us with legitimate complaints. We are here looking for solutions. I have an appointment today with a "Genius." If a case doesn't solve it, I am getting my 3Gs back out and trading this thing back in. Early adopters get the bugs. Okay, I have been one all my adult life, but I won't be a Beta tester. This is a hardware flaw. I love this iPhone, except for the... Phone.

    I have owned an Iphone, Iphone 3G, Iphone 3GS and now an Iphone 4G. I am a big Apple fan. I have experienced the most issues with my Iphone 4G than I have with the other phones.

    I have experienced the signal loss issue. Although, a case does seem to help my phone.

    The biggest problem that I have is the proximity issue. I cannot make a call on the Iphone 4G without placing people on hold, hanging up on them, starting a Face Time call or creating key tones. This happens every call I make no matter how I hold the phone. People I talk to on the Iphone 4 all now make phone of the Iphone 4, because of the face dialing issues. I know of another person that has one and he has the same problems with his Iphone 4.

    I would love to keep my phone and I am waiting until closer to my 30 day period to see if something is resolved. It does not matter how I hold the phone I still experice the face dailing issues. The proximity sensor is a major issue with the Iphone 4.

    This subject is getting very boring now. If you have 1 - 40 IP4's & have problems, who cares?!

    There is only 1 answer... If you haven't been living under a rock for the past week, then you should know... Wait for the update! Simple

    If you bought from the Apple store, you have 30 days to return, if from your carrier, you have 14 days (UK).

    Jay, are you seriously trying to tell me that holding a phone this way

    http://iphonehold.tumblr.com/

    that it is unnatural? How do YOU hold it? Got any pictures of the "right way"?
  • Wingsy Level 2 Level 2 (200 points)
    Waiting for the update is not going to solve the fundamental problem. All the update is going to do is display bars in a different way. I don't care about bars. What's going to fix "No Service"?

    The problem is that Apple should release a statement to let people know that they are aware of these problems (proximity) and etc and will actually address them and when. So far Apple has only acknowledged the signal issue that people have complained about. Apple has stated nothing about the proximaty issue.

    With no news from Apple about the proximity issues, then how can customers know that it will be addressed during the next update? We do not know when the update will be released and exactly what it will address. So are we to keep our phones past the 30 day return policy and hope that Apple actaully addresses these issues (proximity sensor issue and etc)? What if Apple does not address proximity sensor issues in the next upadate?

    How do we know that Apple will actually address the proximity sensor issue in the next update? Apple has said nothing about it!

    How do when the update will be released? Apple has only said it will be released in weeks!

    This will be past our 30 return policy. So what if Apple does not address the proximty issue in this update? We cannot return our phones after this time and must live with the constant face dialing and etc.

    I am sure that someone will say "Return your phone". I hate to agree with you, because I would like to keep my new Iphone 4. However, unless Apple addresses the this issue soon or at least releases a statement that it will be fixed in the next update, then I would suggest that Iphone 4 users take your advice and return their phones. I would suggest that no one purchase an Iphone 4 until the problems are addresed or at least a statement from Apple is released.

    I hate to say it, because I love Apple products. But.... The proximity issue is a major issue with the Iphone 4 and Apple has said nothing. This forum is not the only one with users expressing concerns about the proximity issue and a few others.

    I'm just me. I see you've got an iPhone 4. What's yours like?
  • NextelMichaelG Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)
    no one has brought you the problem/issue/fact(in this thread) that utilizing a bluetooth device is proving to cause incredibly annoying and inconvenient interruptions in conversation (due to extremely poor, muffled, voice sound quality)...(in addition to the antenna/death(natural life)grip/signal bars/dropped calls,proximity sensor,battery life,facetime cutting off,and [am i forgetting anything?] ISSUES!!!)
    ...
    or is it just because there are already a dozen independent threads circulating here on the matter?

    I am having the same issues. First with the antenna, and now i am noticing the proximity problems. I never had any of these issues with any of my earlier Iphones.

    Apple says there is a software fix for the antenna problem, I'm a little uncertain if software will do the trick.

    As far as the proximity problem, i haven't heard that apple recognizes that there is a problem.

    If anyone has heard anything, i would love to be in the know.
