I was really surprised to read this article on Consumers Report Magazine that they still not recommending Apple iphone 4 even with it's popularity and superior performance. Having used iphone 3 from my company, almost got me to buy the new iphone 4. I have to admit I am not really an iphone fanatic and ever since I have refused to buy iphone but given a chance to use iphone 3 from our company, I kinda like the phone and it's performance satisfies me. But this article regarding the poor reception problem when you touch a spot on the lower left side while you are in weak signal area could definitely cause lots of drop calls. My phone is mainly use to call patients for appointments and making changes on schedule from our agency's front desk and I travel lots of miles and desolate areas so getting a good reception and clear signal is a top priority on my list. Apple company though temporarily offered the case to remedy the problem but stopped it last Oct 1 and only provide the case upon request. So for those who wanted to buy iphone 4, make sure to ask for the case. Goodluck!
