iPhone 4 Verizon same old story - antenna problems

Seems like the Verizon iPhone got the same antenna problems as the previous AT&T version. Consumer reports just released this info. It could be another reason to pick an Android phone and perhaps also mean that Verizon won't be able to sell as many iPhones as they had hoped.

"The Verizon iPhone 4 has a problem that could cause the phone to drop calls, or be unable to place calls, in weak signal conditions, Consumer Reports engineers have found in lab tests.
The problem is similar to the one we confirmed in July with the AT&T version of Apple's newest smart phone. It can occur when you hold either version of the phone in a specific but quite natural way in which a gap in the phone's external casing is covered. The phone performs superbly in most other respects, and using the iPhone 4 with a case can alleviate the problem."

  1. Its better to switch to charter spectrum internet services to change the story. They are better internet services providers in the USA.
