iPhone Recall Rumors

Will the iPhone 4 Be Recalled?

It's not surprising that after all the problems the iPhone 4 is having, there would be rumors of a recall. Not only are the antenna and reception an issue for some customers, but the fact that the iPhone 4 is so fragile is also causing users to make unexpected returns. And did you hear the one about the reflective ear canal? Yeah, apparently that's an issue too. Thankfully, Apple has been pretty flexible with the upswing in returns by waiving its usual restocking fee. But is it enough?

Although there is already a lawsuit in action, industry analysts are saying that a recall is unlikely. And I'd have to agree. I don't think there are enough complications to warrant a widespread recall, and your comments on the issue confirm that fact — none of you are having problems with reception! However, if a recall did go into effect, Apple would run up quite a bill by replacing all those handsets. Could this be why the white iPhone 4 wasn't available at launch? It's possible that Apple anticipated complications with the device, and held the white version back. It did say it was due to "manufacturing" problems. What's your take?
