So apparently apple released a statement that the mass reported signal reception problem was due to a reception strength display equation. They also went on the record to say all phones suffer from signal strength loss when users hold them but they're usually only 1 bar and not as dramatic that have been seen with the iPhone4. So basically what they're saying is that due to a faulty math equation, the iPhone4 is showing a higher signal then it actually has. So once the call is initiated the call loses more strength because the signal strength wasn't that strong to begin with. They also said that they will be releasing a new software update with AT&T's new signal strength equation. We'll see if it helps.
Until next time,
