There is no doubt that Apple goofed up during the testing phase for iPhone 4. The antenna band issue may be one of the more serious and prevalent issues on the new iPhone. But that is not the sole issue affecting the new iPhone. As several users had complained since they purchased the new iPhone, the device tends to disconnect or act randomly funny due to a super sensitive proximity sensor.
Sadly though, users who have been affected by this issue do not seem to have been sufficiently catered to. With the media holding up against the antenna band problem, this issue seems forgotten.
An iPhone 4 user, Trent Phillips has now initiated a grass roots campaign to reach out to mainstream media as well as blogs that cover Apple to deliberate on the issue more. Phillips has explained that Apple has failed to acknowledge this issue even in the support forums and instead chose to lock down the 113 pages of discussion citing browser timeout issues.
Let us see if Phillips succeeds in getting Apple to open up on this issue. How should hold the iPhone for this one, Steve?
