If you’re having issues with the reception, when you touch the lower left steel case of the iPhone4, it is better to buy a bumper which will strap round the iPhone 4 and thus will reduce reception issues. You’ll have all the signal needles glowing in full!!
iOS 4 Availability
Apple’s iOS 4 will ship standard on new iPhone 4 handsets. Apple plans to make iOS 4 available on June 21 for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, and iPod touch—although there will be some limitations and some iOS 4 features wont be supported on older handsets. (For instance, multitasking will not be supported on the original iPhone 3G. Apple’s original EDGE-only iPhone, released in 2007, won’t support iOS 4 at all.)
