iPhone 4 Reception Woes: Apple Says Issue Is Software, Not Antenna

In a statement released by Apple, how the iPhone is held is not the issue, nor is it the design of the antenna; it's the software used to represent signal strength that is to blame.

In a statement on Apple's Website July 2, Apple spokespeople said company officials were "surprised when we read reports of reception problems, and we immediately began investigating them." What they discovered was that the problems have nothing to do with antenna design, but with how the signal strength is represented on the device.
