It may just be launch day media hype for the massive iPhone 4 release today, however some reports are starting to trickle in on what could be a significant issue with the phone's reception.
Owners are reporting that by holding the iPhone normally in the hand, the bars that indicate reception strength begin to quickly drop until the phone loses all reception. Conflicting information on whether the iPhone actually loses all reception or the indicator that shows reception is buggy. Some owners report that when they try to place calls after the signal drop, they were unable to do so. Others report that they could still make calls, and still other owners report no such problems exists with their iPhone 4 at all.
