    Sorry if this was already covered. I'm not an iPhone user, just thought I'd try to help.

    iPhone 4's have a lot of reception and dropped call issues. Some of the problem is actually touching the antenna band that wraps around the phone. I have seen people discuss putting duct tape or special sticky strips on their phones but it could be as simple as getting a phone case! A silicone or snap-on case should do the trick. And who wouldn't want to protect their $600 phone anyway!

    Are you serious? One of the known remedies is putting a bumper aka case that fits around the antenna. This is has been discussed as well as infuriated many people that don't feel like they need to put something on their phone to not protect it but to make calls.

    It's a good thread because it would probably come up in a search for a person who
    might think that only the bumper solves the issue as opposed to pretty much any case.

    Just give her a break dude. She meant well.

    Oh well. If common sense doesn't tell a person that putting a case on the phone covers the problem like a bumper then they have bigger problems. And if the OP thought they came up with something ground breaking, then they must have fallen off the earth over the past 2 weeks.

    It blows my mind how all these 'know-it-alls' degrade someone trying to help the 'know-it-alls" out.

    I got ripped in another forum for asking about apps for a certain phone and how they charge for them. The answer was "can't you find that answer by googleing it"?

    The next time one of these types of people comes in to my office for a health care problem I'll just say "Google it and fix it yourself".

    Sc**w you scorpiodsu. No I did not think it was ground breaking, I heard it somewhere else and thought I would share because I'm on Crackberry all the time. Thanks to everyone else for sticking up for me. Sorry I tried to help, won't happen again, I'll stick to the Blackberry forums.

    Thanks jen . Yes, one of the known remedies is putting on a bumper, which fits around the antenna. This is fairly well known in on-line forums such as this, though many people feel like they should not need to put something on their phone to make calls.
    There, fixed it for ya.

    Hey, Jen!
    Don't let it get to you. Many of the folks here are cool, humble and well-adjusted. Some others...not so, and that includes the Blackberry forums. But don't take it personally, and don't let somebody run you away.
