---- Consumer Reports refuses to recommend the iPhone 4

Post after post of vitriol is not constructive.
It's not vitriol, it's purely an observation on how people are buying what was immediately reported a defective product and now even Consumer Reports won't recommend.
The previous iPhone's, other than being tethered to AT&T's network, had no real issues.
This product just feels rushed to the market, poorly tested, incomplete testing methodologies (always in a case?), etc. etc.
Trust me, had it not been for the iPhone 3G being AT&T only I'd own one.
However, I certainly wouldn't rush to get the iPhone 4 after hearing of all these complaints on the first day it's released which is why I commented as I did.
Who in their right mind runs out to buy something known to have multiple somewhat serious defects until the problems have been resolved?
If you want vitriol, ask me about how AT&T treated me after being a 10 year customer putting up with their spotty network from the origins of Cellular One thru AT&T sometime. It's an earful and the reason I'm now on Sprint which has no iPhone thus forcing me into Android, all AT&T's fault too, but that's another thread.
FWIW, I'm waiting to see whether iPhone gets fixed before the exclusive AT&T contract ends next year as I may consider switching to an iPhone, assuming it's actually fixed by then.
I'm in no big hurry, I can wait until the iSmoke clears ;)
