In the light of iPhone 4′s signal issues, let’s get to the core of the problem. To say the least, this whole issue, termed in media as Antennagate, is blown-out-of proportion. Within days after iPhone4’s launch, bloggers jumped, users complained about its receiving problems.
Youtube videos demonstrated that the signal can be lost from 5 bars to 2 or 3 bars by mere touch on the lower left corner of the phone. As with all things Apple, bloggers joined the bandwagon and wrote about it.
