Apple have found a solution to the iPhone 4s signal problems.

As I've seen many people are worried about the problem with signal on the new iPhone, as seen in this thread:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/705749/oh-dear-problems-with-the-iphone-4-

Well Apple have come up with a solution:

"You're holding the phone the wrong way"

WTF?! I MEAN SERIOUSLY? Absolutely terrible in every way.

Bad call Apple, bad call.

Wouldn't duct tape, I'm so sorry, iDuct, still affect signal performance?

Seems like Apple should supply the duct tape to users with this problem, after all its his bad product

no, the iWood has better reception than the iPhone, so it isnt compatible

Ahh yeah I forgot, the amazing 3b technology!

At least when you hold the iWood at both sides the reception doesn't go down, or up, or anything. :p

This is a good video...Quite detailed.

Then again, it probably won't affect 90% of the early iphone 4 customers as they use the iphone for everything BUT make calls!

Unless you change your wife's hands with something more appropriate then I'm afraid you will be out of luck; Apple are saying that you don't have an iPhone that seamlessly integrates with your life - you have to seamlessly integrate with the iPhones life.

I bought a bumper case from apple, and haven't experienced this fault. I totally disagree with the need to buy a case to make a phone work though.

Yeah, that or "Don't worry, we will bring out a new version which will have the problem solved, just pay extra for updated version and we will sort it out"
