Everyone has been making a big deal of the iPhone 4 Death Grip. The Death Grip is when you hold your iPhone 4 a certain way that causes severe antenna loss.
Unfortunately, the problem does exist in Winnipeg as demonstrated in the video above. However… I noticed that even though my phone was reporting signal loss with the grip, I could still make clear phone calls with it. Also, this was only happening in weak-signal environments such as a basement. Though my basement started off with 5 bars, it quickly demolished to 0 bars after 1 minute of the death grip.
In a stronger signaled environment, the bars only dropped to 3 with the death grip.
So if you haven’t taken advantage of Apple’s FREE case offer, you should right away. I ordered mine on July 30, 2010 and my case isn’t schedule to ship until September. Head to Apples Website for instructions on how to obtain your free case, it only took me a few seconds to order one.
