A number of users are reporting problems with their iPhone 4. Apple's latest device went on sale on Wednesday, with hundreds of people queuing outside Apple's flagship store in central London for the launch.
The issue relates to the mobile phone signal, with users reporting a drop in signal strength when the phone is held.
The casing of Apple's latest phone is made of stainless steel, which also serves as its antenna.
I'm amazed they didn't pick up on this issue, especially as it's meant to be a cell phone.
Apple has released official advice for iPhone 4 owners to overcome the problem of the device losing signal when held by the lower left corner.
Steve Jobs responded to a query about the problem from one owner by saying: "Just avoid holding it in that way."
The official advice is to "avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band".
So the lucky people who own them is this a concern ?
