I'm loving my new iPhone 4 so far! I got the app that turns on the flash, so its like a flashlight... and a cute GPS app that tells you who else is around and gives you turn by turn directions to things...

And I got this awesome case on ebay!

Do you have any of those infamous reception problems?

Well see, the problem isn't reception... the problem is only the algorithm they use to represent reception by those little bars at the top left.

So the problem was never that this phone gets bad reception if you hold it a certain way, it was just that the bars go up and down on the display.

There is a massive volume of news literature that contradicts this. Some fraction of iPhone owners apparently lose reception if the phone is held a certain way. Apple's PR has been that it's just the software issue you mentioned, but that appears to be a non-sequteurial side issue.

Apparently Apple is going to hold a press conference about the issue.

Yeah you're right... my bad! I guess I read it was just the algorithm with the bars, and yesterday I heard a bunch of stuff about it being an actual reception problem.

I haven't noticed anything different from my 3G one though.... but I'll get a free bumper! haha

I pre-ordered mine on the 2nd day of the pre-orders, so I got mine in the mail last week.
