The Real iPhone Antenna Problem?


The so-called death grip hasn’t caught up with me on my iPhone 4 (I’m running 4.1 beta 3 which helpfully fixes the proximity sensor problem that I had from day one with the phone but that doesn’t fix the reported antenna problem – maybe it’s all in the wrist?). But I have noticed significant delays with receiving texts. In a low signal area, I seem to have enough juice to send a text, but not too little to receive the reply.

Emerging from a building earlier this week I was surprised to receive a dozen texts in quick succession – despite my having sent perhaps the same number whilst in the building. It wasn’t the first time this had happened.

Is this iPhone 4 antenna related? A problem with the O2 network?

Or something else entirely – that perhaps using email or browsing the web somehow affects the ability to receive texts and so delays them?

Or is it just me?
