Apple issues advice to avoid iPhone flaw


Well I have to say I’m in part glad I decided not to wait for the iPhone 4G when my contract was up on my old iPhone 3G, I decided to go with the HTC HD2 Windows Mobile 6.5 phone, which lacks the “apps store” that Apple has, but compensate in other ways, notably no extra charge for tethering to a laptop/notebook and not having the issues that Apple’s are having now.


Apple has released official advice for iPhone 4 owners to overcome the problem of the device losing signal when held by the lower left corner.

Steve Jobs responded to a query about the problem from one owner by saying: "Just avoid holding it in that way."

The official advice is to "avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band".

Alternatively, said Apple, customers could buy a case to shield the antenna.

The iPhone 4 went on sale on 24 June, with hundreds of people queuing outside Apple’s flagship store in central London for the launch.

Many new owners reported that signal strength dropped when the phone was held.
