Apple iPhone 4 Problem and Its Response

Were You Pleased With Apple's iPhone 4 Response?

During Apple's press conference last week, Steve Jobs announced that, because of antenna and signal problems, all iPhone 4 users would receive free cases to help improve reception and reduce the chances of dropping calls. The announced solution had been suggested by a number of media outlets and critics of Apple's iPhone, so many people weren't surprised at the decision.

Though I'm an admitted Apple fan, I was pleasantly surprised at the announcement. And although many people haven't been experiencing the reported reception problems, Apple's hoping to keep customers happy with the offering. Whether you're a fan or Apple user or not — what do you think of Apple's response?

I have to say I was satisfied with the outcome.People are getting free bumper/case. Even though I didn't experience these problems with my phone I'm still going to get my freebee. Who doesn't put cases on their phones anyway? I've seen a few people, butI always had a case on my 3G.

I don't have an iPhone, but I will say that the way they handled the call dropping issue was complete nonsense. They have a phone that has a totally fixable problem. Stick a magnet or something on the inside, and boom, it's fixed. Instead of issuing a massive recall, they opt to try to pin the problem on users - "well, don't hold the phone that way", is moronic. The thing is, they fucked up and don't want to take the time to fix it. A case, while it masks the problem, doesn't actually *solve* the problem, so it just makes Apple seem even shittier, and it makes Steve Jobs look like even more of a douche. If Apple keeps up with crap like this, they can guarantee they will lose a customer. I like some of Apple's products, but wow, they are really sucking for now.

I wasn't sure if I should vote, being a droid owner, but I was not happy with the way he tried to say it was better than the other phones, it seemed like he was covering up the issue.
