I, too, was impressed when Apple unveiled its integrated antenna case design at the iPhone 4 announcement event back in June. Little did I know the actual reception of the iPhone 4 would be worse than my original first generation (OG) iPhone. The issue has even prompted Apple to seek out actual antenna engineers (seriously). Until there’s an official fix to this problem, folks experiencing the “death grip” can try Oliver Nelson’s 99 cent “Ghetto iPhone 4 case“. Just a few cuts here and there on your fashion forward rubber bracelet and you’ll be sending and receiving calls on par with an outdated feature phone in no time. [via cnet]
