I'd wait for the 4GFix to come out before getting an Iphone 4 (but a 3gs has been singing its Siren song to me....sigh). YMMV

Firmware fix or not, we as humans still act as attenuators. There is no way around that. It's just that having the antenna as the actual trim of the phone makes it that much worse...

Like Sagath linked us to, the only way to have LESS attenuation is by not holding the phone at all or insulating the antennae from us touching them.

Yesterday Microsoft’s COO referred to the iPhone 4 as Apple’s Vista. I’d actually take that one step further and call this whole situation Apple’s first Microsoft moment. And I don’t mean that in a bad way towards Microsoft, but rather that as a result of Apple’s own great success, it is now susceptible to the sort of fire that Microsoft has been for years.
Hehehe..... :)

Can't be a recall. No way. You pay more for Apple because it's higher quality stuff that doesn't break.....

.... right?
