Apple Offers Advice on iPhone 4 Glitch

share on:

Apple CEO Steve Jobs responded to problems with dropped calls on the new iPhone 4 in a reply to an email from Ars Technica.

Users began reporting the glitch after the iPhone 4 went on sale Thursday. Jobs response was, “Just avoid holding it in that way,” and “All phones have sensitive areas.”

Also Engadget received a statement from Apple stating, “Gripping any mobile phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas. This is a fact of life for every wireless phone. If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases.”
