By Roman Loyola, Macworld
flocking to Apple Stores and other iPhone retailers to pick up the new
iPhone 4 and to partake in the excitement of the crowd. But some users are finding that excitement is quickly dissipated by reception problems on the new iPhone.
Reports of user complaints appeared on
MacRumors’s forums; a user posted a video on the forum (
available on YouTube) apparently showing that the reception bars on the iPhone 4 decrease when hands cover the antennas. A video posted on
Insanely Great Mac isolated the problem to the lower left corner of the iPhone 4 and readers of
Gizmodo were allgedly able to replicate the loss of reception on their iPhones.
