Antennagate is back. Apple’s iPhone on the Verizon network has a similar antenna problem to the one that caused a small uproar when the iPhone 4 was first introduced on AT&T, says Consumer Reports.
If the phone is gripped in a certain way, it can cause dropped calls or prevent users from placing calls in areas with weak signals.
“The phone performs superbly in most other respects,” it said.
Consumers don’t seem all that perturbed. There is no deluge of complaints to Verizon, said the publication. However, as with AT&T’s iPhone 4, Consumer Reports is omitting the Verizon iPhone 4 from its list of recommended smart phones despite its high rankings on other attributes.
