Why Consumer Reports can't recommend iPhone 4
Duct tape WILL fix anything.

Ouch. Good to know it has a relatively simple fix.
Apple should sell a piece of tape called an "iPatch" to cover it up.
The Steve Jobs is not pleased.
Ha - I got an iPhone 4 last week and the signal loss issue is definitely real. Doesn't bother me as much as some other ppl though.
the amount of bother is directly tied to Kool-Aid intake amount.
I've had the phone since the morning it came out and as far as I'm concerned the problem only exists on the Internet.
is that code for steve jobs man chowder?
I haven't had any issues w/ my iPhone 4, and any headaches so far have been on At&t's side if anything.
My fault for sticking w/ At&t, but the phone so far has been pretty sweet. My friend just got an EVO which is great too, but I think he's experiencing some buyer's remorse.
Yeah, probably because hes on Sprint. The WORST cell reception almost anywhere.
I have been testing the device for the last month. The only handset itself is cool, but VERY limited by the provider.
I used a friends Driod this weekend. All I can say is as soon as my AT&T contract is up next month, I'm switching.
bwahahahahahahahahaha! I'm a mac guy, but that's funny!
although it is a obvious problem, CR is the last group of people id listen to on buying something
I have no idea why anyone would listen to an organization that isn't funded at least under the table by the man.
<edit> Fox News says the iPhone 4 is teh awesome. Sorry for trusting CR before asking Fox for my viewpoint.
Wow, in "the dozen or so calls", now THAT'S a TRUE stress test.
true dat, but it is on AT&T and that in and of itself sends me to
DROID and Verizon
like i said, i know its a actual problem. i just dislike CR
I was agreeing with you, CR is fulla horse poop
I think I am going to get a DROID X next month. Any comments?
Save your money so you can move out of that hellhole?
Oh... wait. That probably wasn't the comment you were hoping for...
what....you don't like snow?
Didn't they rush the iphone to market because that doofus left a prototype in a bar?
Uh, each new one comes out in June/July. I think sticking to that schedule is independent of the lost prototype.
does this mean it will be velcro'ed to your palm on our next shuttle session?
Now they are talking about a recall. For christ's sake, all you need is a case. The "genius" bar isn't touching my sweet phone.
If an ass load of snow was the biggest problem with Buffalo I'd be fine with it...
Someone will need to explain to me why Consumer Reports can't be trusted...
Let me proactively throw out this smiley in anticipation of the responses....
How much snow can an ass carry?
That's the old model. And I've put on weight since then.
because they didn't felch steve jobs?
That was my point. My folks read and bought religiously based on CR ratings and have never been disappointed. I don't subscribe or anything, but I do look at ratings there from time to time.
its also useful for looking into what items NOT to buy
Agreed, like the 98% of American cars they fail every year
<edit> I get it, IH8Rice owned a Suzuki Samurai. It all makes sense now. Don't hate the player, hate the game.
I don't know, how strong are you?
i particularly point my finger at their review of tv's or any consumer electronics. they gave my old company's set a "best buy" moniker, when the tv was a overpriced POS. they give other tv's good ratings when they also look like crap, but yet the amazing looking sets do not get mentioned.
their car reviews are a whole other story too.
and no, i have never, nor will ever own a Japanese car.
They recommended both my TV and receiver and I'm happy.
It's called "Consumer Report" not "A/V-phile Monthly". I don't just buy blindly based on what I read. But I do look at their best buy options first and compare. They often don't test higher end stuff, but they usually get a good cross section of a given vertical.
Consumer Reports is despised because they remove the "it looks cool" factor from their observations. No points for show. All points given for go.
Case in point:
Ferrari. How many of you asshats would buy one based solely on looks and monster engine if you could and strap a bike rack on top. Pretty sure as a bike shuttle consumer reports wouldn't let it fly, and they'd be right. Doesn't mean you wouldn't buy it though.
huh. that explains why they never ask if rootbeer is an available colorway or speculate upon the rigidity of items.
Apple PR is on fire.
I would like to thank everyone that pre-ordered the iphone 4G. Also, current sales are keeping us super busy so thanks again.
The haters can always get a job w/ the FCC.....the Fed is the only growth business at this time.
