Steve Wozniac, parintele jailbreak-ului si unul dintre co-fondatorii Apple, vorbeste despre problemele pe care le-a intampinat cu iPhone 4 in timpul utilizarii terminalului. Desigur ca totul se rezuma la problemele cu semnalul care nu au fost chiar atat de grave si s-au rezumat doar la scaderea barelor de semnal si la blocarea incarcarii paginilor in Safari. Iata ce a declarat Steve Wozniac pentru un jurnalist :
Henk van Ess: How did you find out about the antenna problems?
Steve Wozniak: The first time I tried I was able to duplicate the problem. My wife was driving me to the airport and as soon as I got a short distance from my home, and no longer on wifi, I tried it by accessing a web page (using Safari on my iPhone 4) and observing the progress bar.
As the bar started to proceed I lightly (‘lightly’) touched a couple of fingers to the trouble area and the progress bar froze. When I lifted my fingers the progress bar continued it’s (sic) rapid progress. Putting my finger[s] back down halted the progress bar again. Lifting my fingers another time allowed the web page to finish loading.
I tried it again with one more web page I was in a moving car in the hills near my home. Currently I maintain cell phone calls fine there with my iPhones and with other cell phones, although this exact area used to drop AT&T calls reliably, a few years ago.

I tried to repeat this experiment somewhere else a second time, I think in a San Jose restaurant, and I only had partial success. That time I could only slow the progress bar a little and only if I squeezed my iPhone 4 tightly. I concluded that the effect only occurs in some places. It’s like the AT&T dead zone has been extended with this new phone.
If you can afford it, carry a second Verizon phone for backup. Another option is to carry a Verizon mifi and rely on Skype on your iPhone.
Pe scurt Steve Wozniac e incantat de noul iPhone 4 si problemele cu semnalul par a fi mai mult datorate celor de la AT&T si proastei acoperiri, oricum in opinia sa iPhone 4 isi merita banii pentru ca e un device frumos, bine construit care functioneaza fara probleme. Aprecierile lui Steve Wozniac reprezinta un mare plus pentru imaginea celor de la Apple.
