Palomine: ...From everything I've heard/read (the media loves to jump on Apple) this kind of problem is NOT unique to the iPhone4 by any stretch of the imagination... many/most smartphones have such issues that affect reception/dropped calls.
Oh yes, you are right -- but none of those other phone manufacturers made their new phone's antenna such an integral part of industrial design of their handset, nor did those other phone manufacturers try to palm off (pun unintended) their complaining customers by having the gall to try the old Jedi mindtrick on them ("those problems don't exist"), nor did those other phone manufacturers try to brush it all off by telling people to hold their phones differently!

The bottom line: Apple messed up, and if they'd only been open and honest and most importantly responsive earlier than this, we needn't have come to this pass. I'm happy that Apple has finally done the right thing though. Giving everyone a free bumper to act as a workaround for their phone's problem is the least they could have done.

Well, to add to the furor surrounding the iPhone4, I returned mine to AT&T today.

Since I got the phone roughly 20 days ago I have loved the computer side of it, and the iPod side of it. It was phenomenal in that regard. Sounded great, images looked amazing, and it could do all sorts of things.

But the cell phone side was in my singular person's experience less than good. I am well aware that I both live in and work in an area that has less than ideal cell reception. But I need a phone that has good reception and signal abilities. The number of dropped calls was in a word unacceptable to me.

So, sadly I turned it back over to AT&T. I'm less than pleased I had to do this, but I wasn't about to spend the next two years dealing with that issue. Perhaps, in the future I will go and get another iPhone. But at this point in life, the iPhone4 is not for me.

Even though I run in a very techie/gadget-freaky crowd, I have seen the iPhone 4 "in the wild" so to speak, only three times since the launch. I wanted to ask each person what their experiences were, but the chance never arose.

The world's quickest and easiest iPhone jailbreak technique depends on a vulnerability in PDFs when viewed in Safari...works on practically all iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches -- even the vaunted iPhone 4...and is shown here.

And if you want to know how to both jailbreak and then unlock your iOS 4 device, go here.

I currently have an enV2 and love my physical QWERTY keyboard. I was going to buy a Droid2 this weekend, so Proof and I went over to Verizon so I could play around with it first. I have been dead set on getting a smart phone with a physical keyboard, I don't want a touch screen only phone.

Then I played with the HTC Incredible and it was love at first sight. I've never played with a touch screen phone before for more than a few seconds. I tried typing on it, it was so natural. I'd have to learn an entirely new product but I'm willing.

I asked around the internet and learned that most people with touch screens and physical keyboards rarely even use the keyboard, they got it for the same reasons I would (uncomfortable with pure touch screens).

I don't suppose anyone has an Incredible and can share their experiences? Also, I discovered Swype which looks fantastic. If you have the Incredible, do you know if it comes with that? I can't seem to find any info on it!

I don't have an Incredible -- I'm a Nexus One man and have been for about a fortnight now -- but IIRC Swype is available in the Android Market, meaning once you get your Incredible, you can download and install it with no problems.

My current contract with Verizon is up, and my phone is reaching the "obsolete" aspect. I can't WAIT to get an iPhone 4! (If I can afford it). Plus, we Verizon customers get an extra week of ordering in advance.
