    Just cannot reproduce the so called "antenna issue" no matter how I grip my iphone 4. On Starhub line. I think it is AT&T issue. Also never heard of any complaints from users of other countries.

    Starhub seems pretty good eh... i also read a few pple trying the death grip on Starhub, but just couldnt get the signal to weaken. But I saw some demonstrating on Singtel network, and they were able to reduce the signal bar to one bar... altho they cant get it to totally wipe out the signals... there's always one bar remaining....

    can be the software programmed to show one bar at least?

    anyway, how the battery life and do current battery boosters work with the new model?

    Buy a phone case/housing lo. No big deal la. We usually buy 1 for our phones. Though, from what I read, it can't be reproduced by everyone.

    We may have much lower antenna problem on iphone 4 here. One of the advantage of a small country is its easy to cover with cell sites. A drop of a bar of signal in here is negligible. Compare our country with US, the dense of cell sites on some area there might not be as high as ours.

    I'm sure anyone (there's lots out there) who tries really hard enough, can re-enact the experiment and see the drop in reception...

    What is the big deal anyway?

    I get lost network messages on my 3GS/Singtel line all the time, I believe it is depending on the service provider, my wife's 3GS/starhub line does not experience any.

    Once my contract ends, I will switch service providers

    Same here. I can't even use my ST line at home. I've been calling them for the past year and a half about it, and they always promise me they'll send a technician down.

    Check out our very own local saga with iPhone no coverage problem.


    Source: http://www.wengyee.com/tiki-index.ph...Singtel-Iphone

    Summary

    * Bought iPhone service (iPhone + iFlexi Lite 24 months contract) with Singtel
    * My home location has weak signal from Singtel. Enough for any other phone but not iPhone.
    * Singtel refused to believe me.
    * Singtel always blame the SIM card for any issue. It is the cheapest thing to replace. And you need to make a trip down to their shop.
    * I'm too kind to Singtel. I spent more than 5 hours on the phone. Wasted 3 trips to visit them personally, another 10 hours, excluding traveling expenses.
    * I've obediently followed all their instructions.
    * Since Singtel cannot provide me with a reasonable iPhone service, I very kindly offered to return the iPhone and void the contract. I'll get another phone, forget about this episode, I'll still be a happy Singtel subscriber. Singtel refused, insist on charging me a $800 penalty if I do so.
    * Singtel promised a reply by 19/12/2009.

    Yup, me too encounter same problem. The reason I switched from Starhub is because of weak signal in outer skirt area. But, with my iphone 3GS, I got lost network quite often.

    Guys, any advice
